It's a tough color to love, but from the resort collections all the way through the forthcoming pre-fall season, it's clear that orange is having a major moment. Here, we paired Kain's paper-thin cotton tank ($85 at Net-a-Porter) with a stripey, woven skirt ($80 at Topshop). Cobalt flats from Madewell ($88 at Madewell) pick up the blue stripe of the skirt, while a draped blazer by Vanessa Bruno ($842 at LaGarconne) gives the look a modern polish.

We started with Madewell's silky, short-sleeve blouse ($98 at Madewell) for this nautical-inspired look. Styled with stone chinos ($120 at Topshop) and strappy brown sandals ($18 at Forever21), the look could easily transition from the seaside to a city sidewalk with the addition of Rag & Bone's brass button pea coat ($795 at La Garconne) and a cozy scarf.

Calvin Klein's wide-leg trousers ($798 at MyTheresa) are the focal point of this chic work-ready ensemble. Paired with Tibi's pale pink shell ($245 at Net-a-Porter) and a collarless black blazer ($130 at TopShop), the look can also work for a night on the town with a few gltizy jewelry additions. For extra polish, we added Nine West's snake-print flats ($70 at NineWest) and a python-trim satchel from Zara ($90 at Zara).

Orange can be overwhelming, so we kept this silhouette simple and added interest with loud, eye-catching accessories. A textured orange sweater ($72 at Topshop) pairs perfectly with Stine Goya's tailored black trousers ($179 at Creatures of Comfort). Avant-garde accessories like Charlotte Olympia's origami pumps ($1195 at Net-a-Porter) and a gold tote from Zara ($50 at Zara) elevate the look to "high-fashion" status.

Phillip Lim's silky, orange t-shirt dress ($495 at Net-a-Porter) can be a tad casual on its own, so we amped it up with a cream-colored blazer ($120 at Topshop) and spikey, shimmery necklace ($16 at Forever 21). A pair of orange cap-toe pumps ($92 at Topshop) pick up the bold orange hue without being too matchy-matchy.
