Wearing orange can feel like trying to figure out what rhymes with the word itself: It seems almost impossible, yet it can be done. (The word rhymes with sporange.) 

This difficult hue has been on designer's minds for a few years now, in all sorts of shades, from rust to sherbet to traffic cone. But the jaunty spring offerings suggest that orange has gone back to its simplest, red-plus-yellow form. Sure, there are fun options in marigold, coral, peach, whatever citrus-y summer delight you dream about during the dark winter months — but why not give no-frills, classic orange a chance?

Ahead, we've pulled together over a dozen orange pieces, from waffle-knit mini dresses and ruffled swimwear to handbags and beaded jewelry, that will make you feel like pure Vitamin C.
