Orange for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: the Animal Print Version
Quote of the day: “Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.” Unknown
Since animal prints can be considered a neutral…this combination is not much different than Styling Discussion 1 (here) except you may not have thought about this possibility. Most of your animal prints are mixtures of brown and beige so the orange can give a nice contrast to these monotone colors. If the thought of an animal print and a bright color together is too much for you, another suggestion is to pair the orange with a different neutral print.
50’s Orange: I found these boots at a thrift store in California called “It’s a Wrap.” I vacillated whether to get them or not, but I’m so glad I did! They are kind of crazy, but then again, so am I!!!
60’s Orange: A scarf is an easy way to add some color to an outfit. I like to think of it as a fabric necklace—ornamental and functional!
70’s Orange: These jeans are actually leopard, but subtle enough for even one who has an aversion to wearing print. The sweater cardigan is fuzzy for warmth and the ankle boots give some added height!
Thanks for visiting my styling blog!

If you more comfortable with just a little pop of the color—try an orange scarf or necklace:
