Wooly orange jumper

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.

坦白说,柑橘从未是我最喜欢或我衣柜里最常见到的色系。就连在我日常生活里,除了以蔬果的方式现身之外真的很少见到橘色。 不过经过这次造型的搭配后,我希望大家可以更加有自信的去穿出色的衣服。

 

glinkpost04iAs 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.

不管多少个设计师说这是“潮”就连我都不得不承认这个橘色出色到有些难以接受的程度。不过如果你能够抛开所有担心旁人斜眼的杂念并把它当成用来声明你个人穿着特色的物品来看待的话,或许这颗大芦柑会比较容易消化。

 

glinkpost03glinkpost05Orange 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?

      Thanks Lauren! I guess there is a reason why orange isn’t the most conventional colour to wear but it’s a great statement colour and I hope I’ve done it justice!

    Surprisingly, it’s a great combination and it looks good on you. Had to chuckle at the “fruitiliciousness”description. Oh, and the scenery is amazing too.

      Thanks Bill! Yeah, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking! Loved it! It was like the 90 Mile Beach but much less crowded. So strange seeing cars driving on a beach though!!

    Oramge seems like a great color and I agree it’s a bit hard to incorporate in the daily outfit, especially for fun. I don’t think I will even try to be honest as I am a fan of white or black. Sometimes a bit blue.

      Nothing wrong with sticking to what you know and like as I’m guilty of buying too much whites, blacks and blues myself. I thought this orange would be a great alternative to inject a bit of colour and life into my wardrobe though! I hope you like it!

    Orange can be hard to match up well with Asian skin tones as you risk looking too earthy, but you’ve managed to find a lovely orange with red undertones as opposed to yellow thus complimenting your skin very well. The opposing blue/purple plaid trousers are a nice subtle contrast too. Lovely scenery to boot!

    Fabulous pics! I really love the orange, particularly with the dark trousers. It’s funny, I’ve never liked orange as a colour in my wardrobe either but I’m warming to it a bit more lately and I now have two orange tops.

      Orange is such a painfully underrated colour in fashion. It’s nice to see people are starting to wear brights, especially now when summer is approaching (sort of…)
