WIW: cobalt and orange

Here's my new cobalt skinny cords :)  I'm loving them today.

On Angie's recommendation, I'm pairing them with orange.  This top shifts color rather dramatically based on the lighting - in my bedroom, I'd call it pumpkin.  In the bathroom, I'd call it coral.  It's heathered with just a tough of charcoal in the knit, and is nice and warm.  But I suspect it's a bit too short - I thought it covered my belt until I saw these pics.

I paired them with a white belt because I liked the look in the mirror, and I chose the cons so that the toes would bookend the white belt.

Does it work?  You'll be seeing lots more of these pants, I promise.

    I love the combination of cobalt and orange, I think it works great.  I don't think the sweater is too short, it allows your belt to show, and if you wear a longer top underneath, it's great for layering.  I'd say orange and cobalt for the win!

    I think its a great pairing! I would say though that you have a little fold of sweater at arm pit height which could mean you just need to give it a bit of a tug down which would give you more length anyway.

    I adore the colour of both jeans and sweater btw.

    Length in sweater is so hard to find, I think!  Just wear some sort of base cami underneath, and you'll be good.

    Love the energy of the color combo, and the cords are terrific -- making the most of those long legs!

    I'm digging your fun super hero looks. Go Super Amy. You look festive, sporty and ready for action. Hope you're liking your new cobalt skinnies after all.

    I do like the new skinnies - a lot! Thank you for saving them for me!

    I'm not sure I'm digging the super hero looks though - I'm loving that they're warm, but they both have felt a little OTT for me.  Maybe my tastes are tonight down?

    This looks very cool.

    A very fun combination. The sweater looks red on my screen and my first thought was - French colors!  You look ready to be very active with you cons.
