Is Neon Orange Hair the New Street Style?
How does one stand out within the crowd? Phil Oh’s street fashion set has offered a solution to the low-key equation this style month with a targeted shot of brilliant orange hair color. And by narrowing down the complete spectrum of rainbow lengths that dominated the past few seasons to intelligent variations on one electrical hue, they’re triggering a veritable tangerine dream.
The bubbling shade first surfaced season in New York with Madeline Poole’s new “Troll-doll” dye job, a neon tint that allowed her “to wear a neutral now,” she said, as demonstrated by her white, graphic, lengthy-sleeved shirt or sylph-like strapless Miaou dress in a delicate shade of Dockers khaki. Stylist Katie Shillingford equally endorsed the tonal idea on her stroll to exhibit in London, the place she paired a smocked black Molly Goddard dress with painterly washes of the citrus shade throughout her blonde bob—no daring, branded accessories required.
Taking a cue from the slackers, model and singer Rina Sawayama reworked her graphic Faustine Steinmetz tee and furrowed blue skirt with a head of crimped, cantaloupe-colored waves. Her charming addition of a glistening spiked headband gave the impression of a, fairytale-princess-but-from-another-planet really feel. And who may feign shock when the tint turned up in Milan yesterday with a Gucci-fied spin, the model’s brand sweatband wrapped like a halo round one show-goer’s orange-soda-pop pixie. It was a glance that made an outsized grey blazer and fringed denim really feel proper on time.
