Who knew that going to college would actually have an impact on the color of clothing I choose to wear. One of the best life choices I’ve made thus far in life, was attending Syracuse University. Funny thing is, the first time I entered Syracuse’s campus it was move in day for the incoming freshman. I can probably guess what you’re thinking right about now, “Why would she attend a university that she never visited before ?”. To answer your question, I’m not sure why I made the choice of not visiting prior to attending, but I was willing to take the risk.

Many Syracuse University students and alumni often use the phrase ” I bleed Orange”, which basically means, Syracuse University is the best school ever and that being an Orangeman and Orangewoman is the coolest thing you can ever be in life, lol. I have so much orange hanging in my closest, that I had to create a drawer dedicated to all my Syracuse paraphernalia. Knowing that summer is quickly coming to an end and fall is right around the corner, orange is a fun color that is great during both seasons.

During summer, bright orange is great to wear because it brings out your complexion when you have a tan, and it’s a color that complements a variety of skin tones. Orange is great during the fall when it’s a rustic orange color that gives off autumn vibes. I love buying over sized grampa sweaters, and one of my favorites is a rustic orange cardigan. Many people feel like orange is such an “out there” color and can’t be paired with anything, but that’s not true. Orange is a fun color, and I am not just saying that because it is Syracuse’s school color, haha. You can color block with orange, have a great orange statement piece, or a nice orange/peachy lipstick is always fun too. Never underestimate a garment because of it’s color, you never know how it can enhance your wardrobe.

P.S. Did you know that there is no word that rhymes with orange?
