Summer Shines In ORANGE!!!!!!!!!!!
This is one tough color to wear! Very few individuals can wear the true color orange well, but thanks to all the variations of orange (coral, rust, pumpkin, salmon, peach) MANY can wear them beautifully! Just like yellow, (which is still going strong), orange is being designed from dressy to casual clothing as well as all forms of accessories.
Not everyone can wear what we think of as a true orange or yellow color(last months color update). Now that the we have a great range of these two colors available in all the manifestations that fashion offers us: dresses, jackets, gowns, skirts, formal/ informal, as well as the complete range of accessories, we can have the opportunity to experience new and flattering possibilities to wear.
Try going to your closet or dresser drawers and see if you can find one or two of these two special colors that you may already own, or go out and buy a new piece! Start wearing them now, and see how you feel.
The Meaning Of Orange

If you see a trend on your travels (here or aboard) that inspires you, go ahead and send it on to me and I will be delighted to post it!
Here is a hot off the press trend just sent in from a client visiting Lucca Italy. She reports that everywhere woman of all ages, were wearing little "buff" colored boots with colorful dresses, skirts, and of course jeans!
Speaking of boots: they are the long awaited answer to breaking the mold on how to wear dresses or skirts in a new and comfortable way. Freeing woman from having to choose "nylons and pumps" in order to feel put together. Which is still fine for work or professional environments, but now we have new and practical choices!
