Before I get to meat of my post, I want to share with you one of my favorite quotes involving oranges.
You know, the root of the word Miller is a Greek word. Miller come from the Greek word "milo," which is mean "apple," so there you go. As many of you know, our name, Portokalos, is come from the Greek word "portokali," which mean "orange." So, okay? Here tonight, we have, ah, apple and orange. We all different, but in the end, we all fruit. - Gus Portokalos
Orange is a bold color. Too much orange can be a bit overwhelming, but when accented correctly, orange is a great summer color. Here are some tips for incorporating orange into your wardrobe this season.
1. Outfit one pairs a bright orange dress with neutral accessories and a cardigan. The neutrals balance out the bold orange dress.
2. The second outfit uses orange as an accent only in the watch and shoes. Green shorts and a chambray shirt help to tame the orange a bit more for a great everyday outfit.
3. The third outfit might seem like a no-no at first because of the purple-on-orange colorblock. However, since purple is opposite orange on the color wheel, it works. Also, since the orange is on the bottom and the darker color is the majority of the dress it isn't too overwhelming.
4. A basic orange tee pumps up white pants, neutral accessories and a denim jacket.
See?! You CAN wear orange and not look like the 5th Teletubbie.
