Top 5 New Crushes: Orange and Natural, Naturally

Natural linen, canvas and raffia are the most summery fabrics you’ll find, but add bright orange trim and you’ve suddenly got sunshine on your shoulders. I love this color pairing; my linen pants and shorts always manage to find a bright orange top. It is a natural fit – the burst of hot hue plays the refreshing yin to the unfussy neutrality of an organic weave’s yang.
