A Few New Ways to Wear Orange

A Poor Man's Millions shows us how to pull of the season's trickiest color: orange.


In part two of the colour series we jump from the "unmanly" colour of pink to one that is extremely overlooked. Orange stands out a lot and if you go too crazy with it you may get called Carrot Top, but if you find the right shade and tone to suit your complexion it makes a great accent colour for clothing and accessories.

Personally I like to incorporate darker shades into larger items of clothing (sports jackets and pants) and keep my accessories a little bit brighter (pocket squares, ties and socks). I would also suggest that people with red hair and pale skin don't overdose on the colour and instead use their own natural tones as a contrasting colour.

Below are some colours that work well with orange:

navy, olive, brown, burgundy, charcoal, musk and beige.
