Can I wear Black and Orange and not look like Halloween?

Of course!

black and orange travel outfit

tee – L.L.Bean (similar here); earrings – Shana Gulati; pants – Uniqlo (similar here); cardigan – Olive + Oak (similar here); scarf – Nordstrom; watch – Movado; flats – Eileen Fisher (similar here); tote – Street Level (similar here)

Flash back to one of my favorite posts - based upon a montage of images of a lunar eclipse, and see how just the right shades of orange can look great with black! Do notice the way the accessories echo her affection for the moon - moonstone jewelry, a single round button on a sweater, the round face of her watch (accented with a round gold dot!)...

love,
Janice

  3. This is one of my favourite posts, ever. To me, it doesn't really look orange - and I guess coral is really a kind of orange. Whatever colour it is, I love this one! Any chance yo might flesh it out into a bigger wardrobe? Would love to see that, Janice. And thanks for revisiting these posts - they merit more attention!

    1. It's more orange than anything else! But I want to encourage people who like a particular color to think about all of the possible variations that might be available to them, and be more flattering, or easier to wear.

      A bigger wardrobe... hmmm... sounds fun!
      hugs,

  4. Janice, this is my all-time favorite post, as I've already said. I second the notion of fleshing this out to a bigger wardrobe. Pretty Please :)

  5. I love looking back through your posts! The one where she goes to the farm for the weekend took my eye this time as we are going on a similar trip this weekend.
