Orange Vibrations


According to Pantone’s book, Communicating With Color, orange is the hottest of all colors.  It’s a high arousal color, glowing and very vibrant.    So, before I start talking about how others perceive you when you wear orange, let’s have a little mood music.   How about some salsa mix?  Hot latino music for lovers?   eh?

 

Orange has all the drama of red but it is tempered by the cheerful vibes or yellow.  In the language of color, orange is an exclamation point.   It’s so vivid, it’s perceived as playful, gregarious, happy and somewhat childlike.  Sometimes it’s hard for people to take you seriously when you wear orange.   Check out this hat  from Purple Berry Studio on Artfire.   Does it not say playful and fun loving?

It’s not a color to wear to a business meeting where you want to be taken seriously.   The most negative vibration that orange projects is “LOUD and BRASH”.   It definitely calls attention to you.

Orange is the perfect match for fall colors, warm browns and golds.  It adds warmth and vitality to the somewhat muted and neutral colors.   Check out these Fall Glow Earrings from my own Artfire studio and see how they combine with antique gold metal and brown beads to add a warm glow to the accessories.   Wearing orange with these colors gives off an earthy vibrations.

The lighter shades of orange, like peach, melon, apricot and coral give off totally different auras.   People who wear peach are seen as people who are eager to communicate and easy to communicate with.   Coral and apricot appear sophisticated and very upscale.   These are nurturing and approachable colors.   This dress, from Perfect Love Dresses on Artfire is sophisticated and beautiful.

Orange is also a great color for ethnic or tribal looks.   Wear it with plum, gold and red for a really native look.

Remember, when you want to appear playful, fun loving and energetic and maybe just a bit outrageous, put your orange with colors like lime green and hot pink, your “salsa” colors.

And when you want to appear warm and glowing, use the fall palette.

  1. Hi there, lovely blog post about this colour, lovely earrings too. I recently bought a vivid orange workout top, but have found I have to be in the ‘mood’ to wear it as it is really really bright, almost neon….When I wore it to the gym this week the instructor asked me if was popping to a nightclub after the class.? I have noticed that each time I wear it, someone comments on it in a playful kind of way. Perhaps I should make some earrings to go with it, team it up with a leotard and leg warmers and really give them their moneys worth? Love this colour. Fab treasury too.
