New season fashion is finally hitting stores and the colour we have noticed trending is orange.

A flattering way to wear orange is in a top or sweater. Choose a block colour or fun print.

There is plenty on offer in this sunny shade, however, if you’re not brave enough to wear orange as a full look - add touches of it accessorising.

Worn on your lips orange is a statement shade. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal - expect for lashings of black mascara and a buff of summer-inspired golden bronzer on the cheeks.
