Would You Wear... Bright Orange Clothing & Accessories?

Orange on the runway

Color trends have a way of gradually fading in and out of style with the seasons. And the most recent "it color", according to the New York Times, is bright orange. If you think about it, it makes sense that orange would be hot this season - remember last spring's orange lipstick trend? Orange clothing is the next logical step towards market saturation.

While browsing through the Spring/Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collections, I could immediately see why the Times picked this shade - gone were the typical spring pastel shades. Instead, white seemed to be vastly popular, often accented by pops of bright orange.

Personally, I cannot wait to see where this trend goes. While I don't own anything orange and I certainly can't recall seeing any of my friends rocking it recently, I do believe this is a color bandwagon I'm about to jump on.

In case you're looking for a simple way to mix orange into your wardrobe now...
