Womanista Fashion: The Orange Cocktail Dress

Summer is a time when you can really let your inner fashion star shine! You can express yourself with color, accessorize to the max, and show a little more skin than usual. One of my favorite ways to have fun with fashion this summer is with the uber-glam, statement-worthy orange cocktail dress!

I am obsessed with orange. For the CMT awards a few weeks ago, I wore this vibrant orange dress by Lanvin that draped in all the right places (I didn’t have to suck it all in for the entire evening! Comfort! Score!) I was so on the orange kick that I also painted my nails neon orange. So, clearly I love me some citrus.

I paired this dress with a snakeskin clutch (This one from Alexander McQueen is to DIE for!!) and metallic peep toes from Giuseppe Zanotti. I added a few simple but glam rings to complete the ensemble.

However, you don’t have to bust your budget to have fun with orange!




You can rock a similar look with this bright frock from AX Paris for only $28!! Accessorize with some contrasting turquoise heels, and a neutral clutch. To add a little sparkle to this budget-friendly ensemble I love these gold hexagonal hoops. They add some texture and dimension.


Voila! You are instantly ready for a glam night out in Rio de Janeiro or Marrakech. (Or you can just hit up your local cocktail lounge with some girlfriends. Whatever works!)

Rock the orange with attitude, womanistas!
