Orange is one of the prettiest vibrant colors to have in your wardrobe. If you’re unsure about what to wear with an orange skirt, check out our guide!

Nothing beats a pop of color in an outfit, and this styling option is not only reserved for vacation or the summer months. Orange is a great color to be worn all year round and lends itself to being able to be styled for every season and occasion to achieve a unique look. If you’re unsure of how to incorporate the color into your bold look, a skirt is the best way to do this, whether a wrap skirt on vacation, a maxi skirt for formal events, or one of the popular midi skirts for work days.

If you’re trying to figure out how to style an orange skirt to suit your personal style, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve explored some of the best outfit combinations to wear with an orange skirt to prove this is the perfect addition to your wardrobe.

What To Wear With An Orange Skirt

1. White Tee

A classic white top is always a good choice when you’re unsure what to wear, particularly with a statement bright orange maxi skirt. Orange can be a drowning color, so something bright and clean like a white tee, does the job.

Depending on the style of the skirt, the top can be adjusted to suit. For example, for a maxi skirt, a white crop top showing a sliver of skin will break up the outfit and prevent it from appearing too frumpy. Otherwise, a mini-length skirt could be paired with a tucked-in white tank top for a great versatile casual look.

As for the rest of your outfit, you can either dress it down with white sneakers or dress it up with a pair of statement shoes in a contrasting color.

2. Beige Crop Top

Speaking of an orange mini skirt, styling this with a beige or skin tone crop top will create a stylish look perfect for city hopping in the summer months. The neutral color on top means the focus can be kept on the statement fiery orange color of your skirt.

This can also be swapped out for a neutral color top which is a few shades lighter than your skin tone, if you have a deeper skin tone.

Top off your look with minimal accessories like nude strappy sandals. If it’s nearing fall, a nude bomber jacket is the perfect transitional piece for chilly evenings.

3. Orange Turtleneck

If you’re feeling bold, why not try a monochrome orange outfit and pair your skirt with a matching orange top? This is perfect for a bold winter look as this can be paired with a sequin or leather skirt for the holiday season, a welcome change from the sea of black outfits you’re likely used to seeing.

You can play around with different shades of orange to make it more visually interesting or with different textures like sequins and embellishments; great for holiday parties. It would however be smart to keep the rest of your accessories minimal with either nude or black shoes.

4. Light Blue Top

For an unexpected color combination, pairing the warm tones of orange with cool-toned pieces creates a super eye-catching look. Orange and blue are opposites on the color wheel, making them complementary colors, and according to color theory – they are the best color combination.

Though they are complementary colors, be mindful of going for a blue tone that still has some warmth to it, as a blue that is too cool can clash with the warmth of the orange.

Because this is a fashion-forward outfit, you can go reckless with the accessories, like incorporating a bold pattern or embellishments.

5. Oatmeal Sweater

Orange can be a difficult color to style in the colder months when the majority of the population turns to cool tones and varying shades of grey or black. For the winter months, an oatmeal sweater will complement the warm tones of the orange skirt while still being light enough to create a symbiotic look.

As for the rest of the outfit, go for orange accessories like a pair of kitten heels, or if you have some winter sun, some funky glasses could be a good option.

6. Black Tank Top

Black goes with any color, and orange is no exception. This is the perfect excuse to get a good quality new black tank top to wear with all your statement pieces. Either go for a cropped black tank for a midi or maxi skirt or a full-length tank to tuck into an orange mini skirt to keep the look sophisticated.

This is the perfect low-maintenance vacation look and can be paired with black heels and a simple black shoulder bag to keep the rest of your outfit laid back.

7. Camel Sweater

Camel is a favorite of ‘quiet luxury’ micro-trend fanatics. It’s a creamy color between tan and beige and lends itself to any chic look, whether with jeans or, in this case – an orange skirt.

A look rising in popularity for winter is a slip-style skirt with an oversized knit on top. The overlook look is chic but still allows versatility to add extra layers if needed in the bitter cold months.

To complete this melting pot of warm tones, complete this look with chunky gold jewelry and pointed-toe kitten heels to add a little bit of spice.

8. Black Strappy Top

If it’s date night, one of the best orange skirt outfit ideas is to pair it with a black strappy top. It seems like a basic outfit, but sometimes the easiest outfits are the best. This is also a great way to style a flowy orange skirt for vacation.

Top off the look with an orange beach bag and flat sandals for a beach-perfect vacation look. If it’s date night, an orange mini skirt with strappy black heels and a leather jacket is the perfect it-girl dinner look.

9. Pink Collared Shirt

For a romantic flair, you can’t go wrong with the combination of a pink skirt and an orange skirt. Orange, [red] and pink are next to each other on a color wheel, making them analogous colors [ones that share a dominating color]. This means they coordinate together extremely easily.

To top off this bold look, complete it with slicked-back hair and bold accessories – like chunky gold earrings or platform orange shoes to stand out from the crowd.
