Apples and Oranges!


 Wearing black and white is a definite trend for the spring and summer, but wearing color is the perfect way to brighten up your day, especially on those cloudy and rainy days. Wearing two bright colors together like red and orange is a combination that is bold, fun, modern and youthful. 

 In color theory, red is a primary color because it cannot be made by mixing two other colors and orange is a secondary color because it's made by mixing yellow and red. When you mix red and orange you'll get a tertiary color; a beautiful reddish orange hue. Red and orange are neighbors on the color wheel and are adjacent or analogous colors. These two colors are definitely neighborhood friendly. 

You can pair red and orange with neutrals like black and tan. White is a fresh and crisp color and red and orange will pop against it. Brown will subdue the two colors and make them more warm and romantic. Mixing other prints and patterns like leopard and stripes makes a fun and edgy statement

  1. I would definitely wear red and orange together. I need to add more orange to my wardrobe actually. I always like pairing bright colors with black or dark colors. It really helps to make them pop.
