Summer 2010 is the season for every Flashionista to acknowledge what self-preserving duck hunters have known all along. Whether it keeps you from getting shot in the woods or getting lost at the mall, orange will get you noticed.
Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It’s associated with joy, sunshine, enthusiasm, success and stimulation.
It’s hard to feel depressed when wearing it. Supposedly, just looking at orange increases oxygen to the brain and stimulates mental activity.
To make a statement without saying a word, add a powerful shot of this bodacious color to your wardrobe.
Q. Dear Flashionista, My triceps seem to have a jive all their own. How can I wear tanks tops withoutscaring the children?
A. Wear a summer scarf so light and gorgeous, everything else but you’re smiling face will be off the radar. Like this Spun Cotton Weave Stripe Scarf, Piperlime $40.
Leave the massive shoulder bag at home and sneak out with a little clutch. You probably won’t even miss the 20 lbs of stuff you usually carry. KOTUR “Morley” Snakeskin Clutch with hand-set swarovski crystal clasp $559.
