Trending Now: Blue & Orange

Summer's coming and stores are a buzz with a feverish tremor as the race to put the best outfits on display is on. In my world, what I put on the mannequins is dictated (about 80%) by what corporate decides will look good. However, on that 20% chance that there's a mannequin that my Ipad doesn't tell me how to dress, that's when I look to the latest trends. 

The past 3 months of a few of my favorite magazines: Lucky, Nylon, Teen Vogue, have all shown me a very prominent trend in clothing AND makeup - blue and orange. Blue and orange is everywhere. It was seen heavily on the runways, and now I'm seeing it in the windows of the discount store at the horror-movie dark end of the mall all the way to the glittering Dillard's.

In makeup, it's a bold statement, not for the timid at heart. Bold orange lipstick or eyeshadow, or a dramatic big blue cat eye. It's captivating, and beautiful. In clothing, it gives the clothes a very sporty feel, which works perfectly as a sporty trend has been spreading through magazine spreads like wildfire as well. 

What do you think of this trend? Would you wear it for makeup? What about for clothes?
