Orange is in the air?

Whether it's Halloween you're more excited about or the fact that we are into the heart warming season of the year, Autumn finally! Be it Starbucks limited edition drinks that tickle your fancy or that snugly feeling of sitting by the cosy fire as you see crisp leaves fall off the trees, it's time to amp up the orange in your life but lets start with the wardrobe shall we?

Although orange isn't something that was particularly flaunted on the runway this year, it's more of a seasonal colour for this time of the year that never seems to go out of fashion. It somehow has those hints of warmth, fuzziness and yet is still full of life. It's the colour that seamlessly transitions us into the last quarter of the year and mentally prepares us for Christmas.

I personally love to incorporate hints of orange, terracotta, mustard and amber into my attire during Autumn, but if you're not a risk taker when it comes to pulling off the bright shade, leather handbags are the way to go. I am in love with the Halloween-Autumn inspired fleet of orange arm candy above by Vanilla Paris. The shapes are quite modern, sporty, chic and perfect for day to evening transformations. Simply pair them with your neutral khakis, sleek monochromes and lush browns for an Autumn apt look.
