I feel like it's a great color to wear to work for those very reasons. It instantly puts me in a good mood, and orange often has that affect on people around you.

For a more subdued and sophisticated take on orange, try pumpkin and rust oranges. Pumpkin was a hot color on fall runways, so expect to see more of it as the weather cools down. Wear it now with white, denim, turquoise, or blush pink for a summery desert/Southwestern feel.
