Unlike last spring when pastels dominated streets, saturated brights take center stage this season. Among them, orange and raspberry are two of my favorites. From clothing to accessories, they will surely spice up all our summer whites!

As you can see above, orange is our featured color today. Since the shade is so bright and eye-catching, team it with neutral pieces, then choose one or two accessories in the same color family or the same shade to enhance the overall impact, like the two ladies did above.

Tangerine is not something new (since Pantone revealed it as the color of 2012, it hasn’t gone anywhere), so in order to make the look more current, Alessandra Ambrosio played a new maxi skirt trend: the double side slit version! Yes, the maxi dresses/skirts have gone from side slit to high-low to double split now!

Last but not least, keep proportions in mind: team a maxi skirt with a sleeveless slim fit top. If you want the eyes focus on your body-hugging pencil skirt and the sexy subtle side slit, keep your arms covered.
