Dark Orange

Today, I saw the prettiest wool blazer from Zara in dark orange. I loved the shape and cut immediately, but wasn’t convinced about the colour, so I turned to Polyvore for ideas. Here is the outcome:

Every look shown here is casual, appropriate for everyday use and each of the tops can be easily replaced with a version of it to fit your personal style (for example: white lace top replaced with crisp white shirt or basic white tee etc.). I chose dark washed jeans as main piece of clothing (besides the blazer), because I find complementary colours make a really good basis for an outfit. I paired this with navy flats for spring and tan wedge sandals for colder summer nights. From here on it was just a matter of trying out what looks good and what doesn’t.

How would you style it?

Love,

Lori suggested pairing this jacket with white jeans cut at the ankle and brown sandals (and brown hair hehe). What a great idea! Here’s my take:

    I agree cut, shape and style of it but not too sure on the colour – plus I have dark brown hair? I would possibly wear it with white jeans cut at the ankle and some classic brown sandal’s. What do you think?

      Oh wow, great idea! It sounds really fresh and summery, I’m making another set right now and I’ll update this blog post today. Stay tuned! :) Oh, and burnt orange colour looks really good with brown hair ;) x

    Oops, I don’t know what happened there – bad grammer! It was suppose to say ‘I agree, I like the cut, shape and style…’ :o)
