If you’re still unsure with mixing orange ensembles to blue ones, then you could go for the failsafe route of wearing orange and blue accessories together, having an orange outfit with blue accessories, or the other way around. Think of hats, fur scarves, silk scarves, sunglasses, bags, clutches, and even shoes that can add a pop of color to your outfit. Also, wearing an orange center piece surrounding with blue accessories lets your orange stand out even more. As a result, the attention is focused clearly on one shade while the other complements it yet at the same time there’s a healthy balance of the calmness of blue and the loudness of orange. If you feel the combinations are still too bold for your style, you may go for softer and lighter shades that will do the same trick.
For a casual take on the creative color combination, you may go for a faded, near-denim washed shade of blue to be your base color and brighten it up with orange tops and outerwear.

Whether it’s an orange trench coat, cardigan, blazer, jacket, leather vest, off shoulder tops and other feminine blouses, just keep in mind that you also have to consider the balance and proportions to avoid looking sloppy and overdone. For instance, the sleek and tailored coat goes well with denim boyfriend jeans.
