Style an Orange Dress Like Jennifer Lawrence

How to Work an LOD — Little Orange Dress — Like a Pro

Although the little black dress is a seasonless closet staple, Rihanna, Amanda Seyfried, and Jennifer Lawrence have all opted for a little orange one instead. And let's just say, the bold color swap has us second-guessing our own current go-to dress choices. Rihanna skipped the Valentine's Day pink palette for an orange wrap dress in LA, while Amanda styled a silk Roland Mouret confection with ankle-strap Jimmy Choo pumps, and Jennifer went sexy-sweet in a Stella McCartney cutout dress in London. Not only does this high-octane hue complement most skin tones, but with a few easy styling tips, the LOD can be the star of your wardrobe year-round. Take a cue from these trendsetters, then shop our editors' picks to beat the Winter blues.

  • The Trendsetter: Rihanna's gold ankle-strap sandals lent a minimalist touch to her orange wrap dress. To inject a similarly cool — but never overdone — tilt to your LOD, add a leather jacket, caged sandals, and a statement necklace into the mix.
  • The Sophisticate: From the cowl-neck collar to the ladylike hemline, Amanda's Roland Mouret dress evoked a seriously chic vibe. Follow her lead and work your orange dress with ankle-strap sandals, a black belt, and dainty jewels, and then top it off with a plush fur coat to further the sophisticated glamour.
  • The Siren: Jennifer's bright orange Stella McCartney dress featured the perfect amount of sex appeal. Mimic her party style with a cutout LOD, metallic pumps, and an effortless updo.
