For a lot of people, orange is a hard color to pull off. Surprisingly though, orange is a very flattering color since it instantly adds a natural glow to your skin tone. This spring, designers lit up the runways with a range of vibrant tangerines, neon oranges and amped-up corals that looked yummy and wearable all at once. But if you’re not used to wearing orange, it can seem a little tricky. So here’s how to make sure you’re wearing the right hues at the right time.
If you decide to wear orange near your face, such as a top, a hat or accessories, pick vibrant shades of mango for olive-to-dark skin tone. If you’re a little paler, opt for more muted orange shades such as a sunset color. When trying on garments at the store, just hold up the item near your face; if it makes your eyes pop and brightens up your face, you’ve got a winner. But if it makes you look pale or drab, put it back!

We were all surprised by the tragic death of Gianni Versace in 1996 but good thing that his sister, Donatella Versace became the chief designer and inherited a somewhat daunting legacy. Versace goes on with the challenge and remain unwavering. The goddess of fashion continues to design and release enchanting products such as this ‘Socialite’ Satchel. It features bright silvery hardware contrasts brilliantly with the deep blue patent leather styling a structured satchel fronted by flap pockets. It is part of the fall 2009 runway and by the look of it, this would definitely be recognized as a creation of one of the top designers like Versace. You can have this for a retail price of $3,600.00.

I just *heart* this new stint pulled by the Danish Fashion Institue last Dec.9. It was a showcase of fabrics made from, well, you guessed it – recycled materials. Now this wasn’t your usual eco-friendly apparel made from earth-toned and rich-textured organic materials. This is innovative recycling that can have the same smoothness of silk and glossy sheen of PVC. Even the names used to call the products were done by a real style-genius. Crabion, Ingeo, Ditto and Milkfiber, samples of new fashion-lingo, were the keywords heard in that event. Ingenuous materials like crab byproducts, corn scraps and even powder left over from boiled milk were used to show how traditional textiles can be replaced with innovative new ones. Talk about protecting Mother Nature, these guys really delivered!
Hats off to the show’s 20 designers from five Nordic countries and representative of retailing giants as H&M and Barneys. Each presented two looks made from organic cottons, silks, polyesters and recycled agricultural materials. Asymmetrical cocktail dresses, oversized joker-collared windbrakers and dresses in strappy bodice were just samples of styles the models strut on the runway.
I hope to see more of these soon in malls, too. Who knows what else they could come up with next time. With the buzz that multinational organizations have been creating on being eco-friendly, I’m pretty sure there’d be more of these.
