How To Wear Burnt Orange, The Season's Biggest "It" Color

by Eliza Florendo

Pantone may have named "Greenery" the color of 2017, but there's definitely one color that's taking over the fashion scene. Seen on the runways and streets, fall's biggest color is burnt orange. If spring and summer were taken over by millennial pink, fall is about to get an appropriate seasonal makeover.

Just this past men's fashion week in New York, London, and Milan, the one color so many designers sent down the runway was rust orange, whether it be in a coat, pants, hats, sneakers, and yes, even furry pants.

Brands like Givenchy, Dior Homme, J.W. Anderson, Prada, Moschino, and more all showed elements of this bright, playful color with deeper, browner undertones. Makes sense — since fall brings along all sorts of orange-colored items. Pumpkins and fall foliage are just two of the many orange things to enjoy in the autumn season.

And it's not just in high fashion, either. All over the streets of New York City and on Instagram feeds everywhere, this beautiful color has been popping up everywhere, and it won't be much of a surprise once you see it filtrating through beauty, too. From purses to caps to dresses to nails and lipsticks, burnt orange is the new black. And millennial pink. You heard it here first.

Recently, Yael Stone was photographed wearing the chicest burnt orange pants paired with a black crop top.
