Orange is the new black

This year’s colour, as seen on all the catwalks was orange, giving fashion a new zest, new energy, to take on the future; clothing this season comes in every hue from tangerine to coral, but did you know that orange was originally considered a shade of red and took the name of ‘orange’ after the fruit?

Malta, especially the three villages of Lija, Attard and Balzan, are famed for their oranges, indeed, Queen Victoria loved them so much, she was gifted boxes every year, a tradition which has continued to this day.

The colour in its brightest form, is often used for safety equipment and clothing, and this gives us a clue as to how it works with others. Take the military khaki or navy bomber jacket; the lining designed to be visible in the sea if a pilot had to eject his plane, introducing two combinations that may not have come to mind. Play with the tone and see how it works with stone for example, almost all shades go, from very pale to the boldest neon.

Block dressing is in this year so wearing it tone on tone from head to toe gets a great big YES from the fashion police, it looks great with black and brown too – but try it with fuchsia or red to really make a statement and tick the clashing trend head on.

For an outfit that screams summer, simply wear with white, and it looks so good against a tanned skin too! Make up should switch to shades of orange too, to really max out a healthy glow. And last but not least, take the ubiquitous selfie with an Aperol Spritz to get into the vibe. Orange really is the new black.
