Pink… Nah, we're over it.

Yep, according to Pinterest, there has been a 59 percent increase in orange, with many saving the colour to their boards for inspo this season.

The shade is set to dominate the catwalks – and our wardrobes – for the next few months and we frankly can't wait to see the trend thrive.

However, if you're a fully-fledged pink person, or your wardrobe is mainly made up of black and grey clothing (guilty), here are a few ways to integrate the fruity colour into your life.
