Orange is the New Orange

Orange is the new Orange. Not on board yet? OK, hear me out. Orange is the one color that’s really, truly underappreciated. It’s not just for hunters, pumpkins and Gritty. And although it looks good in those places, too, this is the time of year where it’s able to shine in all it’s burnt amber glory. In nature, in sunsets, in decor, and most importantly, as an element in our wardrobes and homes.

If you’ve ever wanted to dabble in orange but weren’t quite sure when, where, or how it might be appropriate to experiment– NOW IS YOUR TIME. You don’t have to take it to the level Gritty does, but maybe with a little of the confidence inspiration he offers. After all, he makes it look pretty easy to wear.

Goodwill® is the perfect place to finally make the leap and dip your toe into some tinges of tangerines. Some salmon splashes. Some apricot spots.

Here’s some fabulous finds to inspire your Goodwill trip into the orange unknown. This one, from the Goodwill of South Central California that is just what I’m talking about. SUPER autumnal all-Goodwill look topped off with a classic plaid and boots. The 70’s vibe of the long skirt really brings that pop of orange home. (Also, wrist scrunchie for the win!)

And of course it’s sweater season to boot, so don’t overlook those. See something you love that just needs a little TLC? Check out this fabulous orange sweater that was rescued from the bins– originally a pilled mess transformed into a whole new life with a sweater razor. And a J.Crew cashmere sweater for $1.50? C’mon. Does it even matter that it’s orange? I’d wear this no matter the color, any day.

Autumn is more than a color, it’s a feeling that transcends season. Just like shopping at Goodwill is a shopping experience that transcends a mere need for necessities. It’s a way to feel good about the purchases you make all year round. Goodwill helps connect people with job training and reduces our waste footprint– something that looks good every day on everyone. Orange you glad you shop at Goodwill, too?
