SHORT ORANGE DRESS
First things first, the short orange dress. I know, you probably have one already. Nevertheless, my mini orange peachy coral dress is better than yours. Unless you have one of these short orange dresses from the gallery below, of course.
By the way, my mini orange coral dress comes from Juicy Couture. Unfortunately, you can’t shop the same dress anymore, but hey, there is a bunch of chic and easy to style orange dresses in the widget above. So if not already, make sure you check them all. I know there is an orange dress in your size waiting for you.
BLACK SLIPPERS AND TOP HANDLE BAG
Finally, the two things that make this orange dress appropriate anytime and anywhere. Black slippers and a top handle bag.
And no, flat mules don’t necessarily have to be black, they can be dark blue, dark green, dark grey. As long as they are dark and look luxurious, they will be ok. I do, however, advise you to get one of these flats below.
As it goes to the bag, your bag should come with a top handle, and shouldn’t match your shoes. Even better if it’s soft. The soft structure of your bag will tone down the vibrant orange of your dress. While the top handle will make this outfit an excellent choice for work too.
About the bag and shoes matching; if you match your shoes with your bag, you will make this outfit look too dressy, which is not something you should do if you want to wear this short orange dress from office to street. Match your bag with the dress instead.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
I already briefly mentioned what hairstyle you should have when wearing this mini coral orange dress with black slippers and top handle bag from street to work and back, furthermore to the party. Still mentioning it again since you can’t really see the pearl hair clip I wear in the back.
Anyway, your hair should be somewhat chic yet ladylike. I know, it’s easy for me to say this now when I wear fringe and have a stash of pearl hair accessories. But you can get a pearl hair clip for as little as $5. Or even less.
Lastly, the makeup. I decided to match my makeup with the dress and put some orange shades on my face. Not too much, though. Just to bring some summer colour around my eyes.
MORE WAYS TO STYLE THIS ORANGE DRESS
While this is the ultimate way to make this short orange dress appropriate for any occasion, you can always down-dress it to make it look more casual. Or put on heels, swap the bag and make it look more dressy. Anyway, be sure to to see how to do both.
