What Color Shirt Should I Wear With Orange Skinny Jeans?

Crisp White Shirt

Very few things are more classic than a crisply tailored, white button-up shirt. This top adds a measure of chic to any outfit. By pairing a white button-up with a pair of orange skinny jeans, you keep the look elegantly casual. You can polish this look by rolling the pant cuffs to just above the ankles, and wearing tan or nude espadrille wedges.

Loose Gray Tee

For a relaxed, casual look, pair your orange skinnies with a loose gray tee. For extra cool points, your tee should look more than a little lived-in. Cotton stretched so thin it's almost translucent works best. The gray should be a darker shade, somewhere between charcoal and slate. Wear the tee slightly over-sized and off-the-shoulder, or gather it in the back with a knot to keep it in place to bare your abs. Keep things low-key with a pair of flat sneakers.


A navy and white striped top adds a cute nautical flare to your orange skinny jeans. This look works because orange and blue are complementary colors. A fitted tee or short-sleeve sweater will look great on slimmer figures. Curvier women who usually shy away from horizontal stripes can pull off this look with a navy-and-white striped cardigan over a white tank top.

Color-Blocked Solids

Color blocking involves pairing like colors. This isn't to say you must pair orange with orange. Any bright, refreshing color that packs a lot of punch can stand its own against orange jeans.
