Orange: Not Just for Pumpkins

orange opening

Perhaps the ultimate Autumn color, orange, whether burnt or bright pumpkin is back in full force. Women generally hate or love it-few remain ambivalent. Personally, I think it’s the change of lipstick hue that gives us pause, but you know how you feel.

There is no blue without yellow and without orange. Vincent Van Gogh

Erdem Ivy Dress

The kind of classic chic with which you may be tempted to greet each first day of the season for years. Wear to the office (if you’re seen) and then out to dinner. An I-know-who-I-am dress. Needs little else-good shoes, perhaps a clutch. Distinctly autumnal floral in contrasting orange, red, pink, and dark green on 100% silk. Skims the body. Round neck, half sleeves, hidden center back zipper closure, center back slit. $1157.00

Really Interesting Sweaters

Left: Long Sleeve Lace Hem Tiered Sweater-Wear this with a mini and thigh high boots, leggings and booties, or jeans. Good for any age. Careful not to coordinate with jewelry that might catch. A pullover with soft, fish-scale weave, slightly puffed, then ribbed sleeves and lace at the hem. Nice wide, framing neckline. Long, loose shape. Softer orange. Looks much more expensive than it is. $65.00

Right: Star Stalker Fashion Chiffon Deep Orange Sweater-Sister to the one above, similar but achieving its own feminine and fun identity. A girly piece. Mascara is vital to you, skirts and hair must have movement, accessories are never tailored. Scooped neckline, contrasting buckled straps at the sleeves, layers of ruffled chiffon at the bottom. Polyester $59.00

Roksanda Ilincic Mustard Organza Dress

Now this is a color that will turn heads! Unusual silhouette too. Stylish and tailored yet designed with feminine choices. Make a boardroom impression without saying a word.

Catherine Deane Silk and Lace Dress

Ladylike and demure. Turn your back to reveal a bit of flirt. This dress has a vintage feeling. Martinis anyone? Definitely pair with high heels and your good jewelry.

Left: Joseph Lisa Wool and Cashmere Blend Wrap- Luxe and easy looking, this piece will brighten all those overcast days. Especially suited to brown, camel or navy, plaid or nubby tweed. Add a midi skirt and boots to look like a titled Brit at her country house. Big, folded collar. Belt loops and belt, side slit pockets, open front. Fully lined. $895.00

Right: Hooded, Sleeveless, Zipper Pocket Vest- Slightly longer, casual, quilted vest for that rough-and-ready-walks-in-the-woods look. When you’re in and out of the car and don’t feel like wearing a coat; when you want to add color but not weight. This is decorative-not down. Add a little zing to your cargos and cords. $36.00

Long Sleeved Pullover Sweater Dress

An extremely versatile addition to your wardrobe, this piece can be worn with tights or leggings, belted or loose. The v-neckline is low enough to get an attractive effect with the collar of a silk blouse showing from underneath. Play with accessories. Office or Saturdays. Acrylic for transition. $39.00
