I’m sure many men can relate when I confess that orange is not a colour I see often in my wardrobe. Hell, it’s not even a colour I see much anywhere else in my life other than in a fruit bowl but after this post, I hope to have convinced myself as much as you all that it is a colour I’d gladly introduce to my palette again if given the choice.
As much as it was ‘in’ as dictated by the Autumn/Winter catwalks, even I have to admit this is quite a blinding shade of ‘range that once upon a time, I would find difficult to stomach. However, if you could convince yourself to look at it as what the fashy peeps would call a ‘statement piece‘, there is a lot of fun to be had with colours as eye-catching as this.
Orange and tartan may not seem like the most obvious match but with a colour so bold, you can either go hard or go home – clearly I wasn’t aiming for the latter as I went and whisked it all up, chucking it a handful of raspbs and bluebs for a colourful concoction of fruitiliciousness.
大橙色和格仔的搭配虽然不是很常见，不过我认为那么抢眼的颜色只有两种穿法：第一，低调，配黑色或者简单的牛仔裤 / 第二，不畏夸张，配更加抢眼的颜色或花纹。不必多说我这次显然选择了第二种穿法，把平常很多人都觉得不太搭的格仔裤混在一起。我个人觉得裤子里的覆盆子和蓝莓调调搭上了橙子后穿出来一种新鲜感。你呢？
