Orange may not exactly be “the new black”, but when burnt orange is closer to brown than tangerine it is certainly a colour I can get behind. If you know me you know I stay pretty neutral and generally wear a lot of black. I look at my closet and see tons of colour but somehow leave in an entirely black ensemble most days. Of course the weather is a huge factor but that said Summer is super close and I can’t wait to start embracing the rainbow and mixing textures and prints.
To say I don’t wear much colour, the first time I go and buy a trend that may not even be flattering and I purchase them in orange-talk about taking risks! I tried on maybe a million culottes…in black..and never committed, it could also be the fact that these were like $15 on sale and I generally don’t commit my wallet to fast trends. That said they hit my non-model-length-leg at the right point, and being high waisted they’re obviously elongating on my 5’1 ish frame. The pleating somehow isn’t accentuating my perma food baby so I’m also pretty happy about that.
