Looks For Less: Refreshing Tangerine Fashion For Summer

Are you in need of something unexpected to give your outfit an extra jolt of energy? Look no further than these pieces in shades of tangerine to seamlessly incorporate into your wardrobe. Despite hating to wear the color orange (it’s the worst color for my skin tone), I find myself gravitating toward these interesting hues on specific pieces, because they’re done so well and pique my interest. When you find the right tailored piece that is flattering for you, or a very elegant accessory, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to branch out and try something new. Tangerine can be very refreshing!


This oversized envelope clutch bag from Topshop is the perfect accessory for someone who only likes bright, unexpected colors in small doses. Its chic shape and minimalist details makes it easy to pair with jeans and a casual top for the weekend. For someone willing to experiment and be a bit more daring, this oversized blazer from ASOS is the perfect mix of traditional and statement making. It would also be perfect paired with denim; just be sure not to pair it with too much black (you don’t want to scream Halloween!)


Dark shades of tangerine or rust are easy to add to your wardrobe too, and these cuffed wide leg pants from Urban Outfitters can be seamlessly worn with anything from a crisp white button down to a fun vintage inspired tee to a feminine lace top. They’ll elongate your silhouette and their relaxed (yet not sloppy) fit is equally perfect for many situations ranging from strolling on the beach while you’re on vacation to just a regular afternoon at the office.


By far the easiest way to add a pop of tangerine to your wardrobe is through jewelry. This BaubleBar dainty pendant necklace features an exotic shape and gold beading, which results in a flattering combination of colors for many different skin tones. If you’re in the market for a statement piece of jewelry, these gorgeous earrings from Anthropologie are bright, sparkly and fun. Their fan shape is sophisticated, and the colorful stones resemble a unique mosaic.

The best part about all these items? They won’t break the bank! Explore incorporating a fun, refreshing burst of tangerine into your wardrobe and enjoy the summer sunshine!
