Tangerine Dream…

No, this isn’t an article about the cast of The Only Way Is Essex, but about the tangerine trend that’s sweeping across the catwalk runways right through to the fashion rails in a store near you.

What a refreshing change to see Jennifer Aniston (the woman who wears so much black she may aswell be an undertaker) in this rather risqué, cleavage-baring, Vivienne Westwood orange dress paired with Christian Louboutins at her perfume signing at the beginning of May. Follow Jen’s fashion rules and finish the look with nude shoes and understated hair.

It seems Angelina Jolie not only shares Jennifer Aniston’s taste in men…The screen siren looked radiant in this elegant Jenny Packham gown at Cannes this year. Accessorising with simple Tiffany and Co jewellery (and Brad Pitt on her arm) she lets the dress do the talking.

Cheryl Cole may have been chucked from X Factor US, but she still hits all the trends and looks fabulous in this orange Giambattista Valli dress, Giuseppe Zanotti T-bar sandals and Vivienne Westwood sandals.

There’s no room for shrinking violets in this sensational citrus shade, so if the bold look is too much for you, wear it in one simple key piece, or stick to acid orange accessories. Check out TellusFashion and this orange jersey top for a subtle nod to the hottest colour on the catwalk or this orange cotton tunic if you want to put a more romantic twist on the trend.

Feel inspired by this juicy shade? There are loads of great choices to add a touch of vibrancy to your wardrobe. Get Angelina’s look with this Roberto Cavalli satin one-shouldered gown, go flirty and fun like Jen in this Diane Von Fusternberg silk dress or for a more casual look, these Ksubi Super Skinny jeans will look great with wedges to emphasise those perfect pins. Why not add a bright contrasting top to tick the colour blocking trend too?

Whoever knew being “tangoed” could be so stylish…

 


Wash & Fold

At TellusFashion, it’s time to get your dirty clothes and loose change  together with just half a cup of detergent and set the washing machine to just 30 degrees.  Virgine magazine has picked up on the laundry inspired trend  with this unusual yet creative dress made from Tide boxes worn by Valerie Avdeyeva and   styled by Hissa Igarashi. This concept has been done before in 2005 when US Vogue featured Lily Donaldson, Caroline Trentini and Gemma Ward getting their weekly washing done at their local laundromat  while wearing some gorgeous  dresses   styled by Edward Enninful . They end up causing havoc when a soap avalanche emerges and takes over  the place.  Paris Hilton sorted out her delicates during her visit to London   in the June issue of Tatler in 2009.  Washing clothes will never be the same again.
