I Said I'd Never Wear This Extroverted Color, But I Guess I Lied

I'm a lot of things, but an extrovert definitely isn't one of them. Although looking at some of the things I wear, you might not know it. I'm certainly up for trying a bold trend from time to time (especially in the form of an accessory), but I tend to prefer neutral and pastel colors. That being said, I do love a color trend.

When I first noticed signs of the most obvious color trend on the S/S 22 runways, I was doubtful that it was for me, but now that it's all over my Instagram feed and all over the new arrivals pages of most of my favorite retailers, and I've had some time to review the spring runways, I have to admit that I've been persuaded to add a few bright, juicy orange pieces to my wardrobe. The most persuasive example was the gorgeous orange Prada look below.

Good, right? This season, the shade of orange that's trending is a true orange. Forget tangerine or rust (for the time being, at least)—this orange is the color of the primary-colored marker you used when you were five. Whether you're ready for a full orange look à la the Proenza Schouler look below or just a pop of orange via an accessory (à la the Bottega Veneta look below), let the following outfits and shoppable items be your extroverted color guide.

Shop Orange for Your Closet

I have this in black and it's such a good sweater.

As trendy as it gets right now.

This easy dress would work for so many occasions.

If these don't look comfortable, then I don't know what comfort is.

I'm tempted to pair this with orange accessories.

Currently trying to think of an event to wear this to.

Dare I say that rubber pool slides are officially back?
