Burnt Orange Cashmere Scarf Colour Guide

Burnt orange is a colour that deserves more recognition. It is darker than the regular, vibrant orange, yet not as dark as to become a brown colour. Burnt orange symbolises warmth and comfort. The colour is also associated with creativity, happiness, and fascination. In fashion, burnt orange is very expressive. It is the perfect foundation for your outfits or a fantastic accessory to compliment your style. Burnt orange can be a fantastic colour to wear throughout the entire year. It all depends on how we combine it with other colours.

Burnt orange may be seen as a very loud colour, as such many people find it difficult to use it in everyday outfits. But you have to remember, that rust orange, which is an orange-brown colour, was quite trendy just a few years ago, in 2018. And even earlier, in the 1970’s it was a common colour for interior decorations. There is a lot to talk about burnt orange and after reading this article, you will surely find a new appreciation for this fantastic colour. Let’s begin, shall we?

What is burnt orange?

You may not even realise it, but the burnt orange colour has an interesting history. Burnt orange, together with other orange shades was often used in paintings. Many well-known artists throughout history, like Van Gogh, Raphael, and Toulouse-Lautrec often used orange hues in their art. The burnt orange colour was officially named in 1915. This however wasn’t without a bit of controversy. The University of Texas and Auburn University disagreed on the exact hue of the colour. Auburn University insisted that burnt orange has a slight blue undertone. Meanwhile, the University of Texas claimed that burnt orange is a secondary colour, with no blue undertones. This is still a disputed subject, as various sources claim different RGB values for burnt orange. However, the Texan claim is the more popular one, which is why burnt orange is also known as “Texas orange”.
