Among the numerous color combinations I have an affinity for, red and orange is one that holds a special place in my heart. While you don’t see it incredibly often, it’s one pairing that always looks effortlessly smashing. I find the combination is best worn in the later months of summer and early months of fall, mimicking the rich, beautiful sunsets of July and September.

Bold red and orange adds instant drama to any outfit, so play the two up accordingly! I paired this favorite pair of orange statement earrings and vibrant red blouse with fun pom pom shorts for a night out with friends. (A quick word on the shorts – I wasn’t sure how this style would look on, but it turns out they are really elongating!) An all-white ensemble with a rich red and orange scarf would be another lovely pairing, but the possibilities are endless! And that’s always the most fun to create with.

    I love those shorts! And I have been dying to get my hands on a pair of those tassels earrings… maybe I’ll treat myself as an end of summer present! Could you post some back to school outfits that are dress code friendly? I love your style and would love to get some ideas from you for my school outfits!
