How to style an orange shirt

Orange is a fun, bold color, and it’s also a great way to add some variety to your wardrobe. It can be worn year-round, and it goes well with everything from denim to black and white!

Here are our three tips for styling an orange shirt:

1. Pair it with black accessories. Black is a classic color that goes with anything, so pairing your orange shirt with black accessories will help balance out the bright color. Try a pair of simple black earrings or a black leather handbag. At work, you could even go for some sleek black pumps (and add some bright red lipstick if you want to get fancy)!

2. Go monochromatic by pairing your orange shirt with other shades of orange or yellow. A simple pair of jeans and a sweater in one of these shades will provide a nice contrast for your top without being overwhelming—just make sure that at least one item in your outfit has some dimension or texture to break up all the flat lines!

3. Have fun mixing patterns! For instance, if you have an orange top but no pants that match its bold hue, try pairing it with patterned leggings or even socks.

4. Pair with black pants or shorts. This is an easy way to dress up your outfit while still maintaining the casual vibe of an orange shirt. Black goes really well with orange because they’re complimentary colors (they’re opposite each other on the color wheel), so they’ll look great together without being too matchy-matchy.

5. Rock your orange shirt with jeans and boots for a casual but chic ensemble that’s perfect for running errands in style!

6. Wear your orange shirt with a basic black skirt for a polished look that will take you from day to night in no time flat!

7. Add in accessories like gold jewelry or a gold watch to complement the color of the shirt without overpowering it.

8. Go for dark denim if you want to keep things casual but still want them to match—it’s not as dressy as black, but it will make the outfit feel more put-together than if you wore a white pair of jeans instead.

9. Wear a cardigan over top of your outfit wearing an orange shirt—this will keep things casual while also adding another layer of warmth over top (if needed).
