Orange Is The New Black

Orange Is The New Black



If you haven't guessed already, the on-trend colour for spring/summer 2014 is orange. 
From blood orange to amber, fashion labels such as Mulberry and House Of Holland have been
 seen sporting the colour at London Fashion Week. Over the past few weeks, I have heard 
the phrase 'orange is the new black' being thrown around in magazines and online - whether 
this be regarding makeup or clothing. Makeup-wise, the trend is to have bright orange lips.
 Topshop's 'Infrared' lipstick is an orange-red colour which would work with this trend or,
 for a subtle option, the revlon lip butter in tutti frutti would do the trick. Fashion-wise,
 orange has been used on a wide range of garments. I like this Topshop duffle bag  which would 
be great for adding extra colour to outfits. Also this wool coat from Zara in tangerine would 
be perfect for spring!

  1. It looks like and it sounds like all the trends are being totally imposed on us by the powerful fashion media, I personally think if you are following trends, you are following the crowd. Do you agree with me LAMEY ladies? I have always loved orange, and I wear it without thinking for even a second if it is on trend or not. I like it I wear it, simple as that. I think young aged people are the main target of the fashion industry, when you are young you don't care much about money, and the rich and powerful are taking advantage of that IMO. Fantastic post, Have a lovely weekend girls! <3 Zhanna, www.stylehenge.com

    1. A very thought-provoking comment Zhanna. The growth of youth consumerism is due to the fact they don’t have any commitments such as a family to feed, taxes, mortgage, etc. So, I agree the fashion industry targets the younger generation, they have more money to spend on clothes. I definitely agree that buying and wearing clothes should be as simple as ‘I like it, I wear it’ and I’m glad you feel the same. By wearing clothes we like, it makes us comfortable in them! Personally, I love to take inspiration for my wardrobe from fashion trends, but not become a slave to them! You have a good weekend too:)
