Trendy 2013 Winter Colors for Men: Burnt Orange
When it comes to choosing the perfect ensemble, color is one of the most important things to take into consideration. Many people don’t realize just how much work goes into choosing the perfect colors for an outfit; it’s not always as easy as you might think. The wrong color combination can be nothing short of garish, and should be avoided at all costs. When putting together an ensemble in the winter, burnt orange is one of the best colors you can utilize. The following are just a few things to understand about burnt orange, and how you can incorporate it into your winter ensembles.
How It’s Different
Orange is not typically a color that many people associate with winter. As it tends to be bright and cheery, it is often reserved for summer and spring ensembles. Burnt orange, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. Unlike a base orange, burnt orange is much deeper in shade, incorporating hints of reds and browns that set it apart as a unique color. The shade does indeed look “burnt,” and can be likened to the color of leaves as they begin to change during the fall season. The warmth and depth of burnt orange make it the perfect color for wearing throughout the winter.
As with any color, burnt orange can be employed in a variety of ways in men’s fashion. It’s very commonly seen in crewneck sweaters as well as cardigans; the color takes very well to wool fabric. Many people choose ties during the winter that incorporate some element of burnt orange, be it in the form of stripes or even full solids. While it’s not quite as common a color to find in pants, some people wear chinos that feature the color.
Putting Together an Ensemble
If you’re going casual, a burnt orange sweater paired with dark-washed designer jeans can help you to stand out in a good way. You can take a preppy approach by pairing a navy blue blazer with a pair of burnt orange chinos and loafers. It is a perfect look for late winter/ early spring especially if you live in a warmer climate. Those who work in the professional world would do very well with a few burnt orange neckties – a tie color that pairs exceptionally well with light, gray, and white dress shirts (or a combination of these colors in form of stripes or checks).
Burnt orange may not be the most common color in the spectrum, but it’s ideal for those looking to add some warmth to their winter ensembles.
