“Orange is the happiest color” ~Frank Sinatra

Orange is a fiery color that pairs perfectly with this time of year. Nothing says warmth and autumn like the shades of orange. There are many hues of this beloved color of mine: amber, merigold, bronze, honey, etc.

In the brightest shades, orange is very inviting, cheerful, and sunny. The deeper tones are exotic and spicy. Orange can transition from day to night, from cozy to sensual, from lighthearted fun to deep romance.

Orange and black can tend to look a little to Halloween-ish but orange paired with brown, tan tones or gold, white tones carries the sophistication to a different level.

Of course, jewelry can be an easy way to add a happy splash of color to any outfit. Certain gemstones like citrine and carnelian have a way of channeling their lively colors to look like drips of straight sunshine.
