Orange is the new black.

Orange paraded down the runways at Spring 2011 New York Fashion Week shows. Many witnesses would even venture to say that it was the prominent color at the event. Appearing in multiple collections across a wide range of designers, it may be safe to say "orange is the new black."

Mulberry, Carlos Miele, Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Tory Burch, and Vena Cava all showed the vibrant color in their new spring line.

Elie Tahari's new collection is also full of the bold color. This dress is one of my favorite pieces from the new collection. This orange shift dress retails at $368.00.

Although not identical, the new arrival by Theme seems to resemble the fitted bodice and burnt orange color of the dress. You can even remove the belt and add a camel color skinny belt, as shown in the picture of the Elie Tahari dress.

Milly also seems to have been inspired by the color that Longhorn fans have been cherishing for years. Designers want to focus on the energizing effect of the color orange and bring out the excitement of the color.

The new Longhorn Fashions scarf by designer Allen Allen has a similar effect of this top. It's rich color and eccentric design are unbeatable. You can pair this fabulous scarf with a white or burnt orange top, a dress, or over a jacket. Within a matter of seconds you transform a boring outfit into a stylish ensemble.

Two other trends of the spring 2011 season are embellishments and animal print. Why not combine multiple trends in these two great pieces?

  1. Love how orange is one of the vibrant hues of autumn / winter . I saw it used with purple and blue/ greens in pics from Europe's Fashion Week. I love it with turquise too!
