Orange is the New Black

Orange is definitely the new black, and not just thanks to the popular Netflix series.

The color is popping up on everything from clothing to makeup to interiors. Ready to give it a try?

Brighten up your shorts collection with this pair from Alysa Rene ($70). Go simple with a white tee and a crystal necklace, or try them at night with silky blazer and wedges.


Add a bold pattern featuring orange, like this Joseph Ribkoff blouse ($240, from Boutique Chic).


Even interiors can handle the hue. Coveted Home now carries these bright Rebecca Atwood pillows manufactured in New York City. The pieces are either hand-painted or hand-dyed, which makes each pillow unique and gives it a slightly different color (Striped Shibori, $225; Dip Dyed Wave, $150).


An orange lip is a fresh way to incorporate this color into your daily makeup routine. We love Laura Mercier’s Nectar Lip Glacé ($25, from Nordstrom). Wear it alone or layer over lipstick for an even bolder look.

Get your orange on in the form of vitamin C from the Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Power C Brightening Serum ($85, from Beauty Brands), which includes camu camu, a berry from the Amazon that has 30 times the vitamin C of an orange. You’re left with brighter, smoother and firmer skin as well as diminished lines and wrinkles.
