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?

Like with art, we need to look at colours primarily with our hearts. Imagine yourself sitting down by a fireplace. It’s autumn, and the tree canopies are covered in red, brown, and orange leaves. The fire casts orange light onto the ground, giving it a brownish-orange hue. Each strong gust of wind takes the tree leaves and carries them, creating an orange river in the air. You can certainly feel the calm and cosiness in that scene. That feeling is what burnt orange represents. This time imagine yourself on the beach, during sunset. The orange rays of the Sun scatter on top of the waves in the sea. The warm, orange sand underneath your feet massages you gently as you walk down the beach. The fading warmth of the setting Sun, together with the gentle cool of the evening breeze caress your skin. This warm and cosy feeling is also what burnt orange is.

What colour matches well with burnt orange?

Burnt orange has some great matches. Here are just a few of them:

  • Blue hues are complementary to orange ones. For burnt orange, it’s primarily azure, but you can achieve significant effects by combining this orange with regular denim.
  • Similarly, mint green is also a vibrant colour, that creates strong, eye-catching contrast with burnt orange.
  • On the other hand, grey, and black help tone the outfit down creating a more serious and sophisticated look.
  • Or combine it with reds and greens for an autumn-specific palette.

Season that celebrate burnt orange
