Traffic-cone orange shirts and outfits are all the rage! It’s a subtle, timeless look that can be modified for both casual and elegant environments. Some may say it’s too bright, but not us! Let’s take a look at some of the most memorable orange looks in film and TV. Who do you think wore it best?

Everyone’s favorite Resistance pilot can pull off just about any look, but we think you’ll agree this orange jumpsuit is in a class of its own. As if the uniform alone isn’t orange enough, he’s often accompanied by BB-8, who has adorable orange accents.

How does one sum up the magnificence of this orange devil costume in just a few sentences?! From the opening scene of Elton walking into the rehab, to the first musical number, to the group therapy, to the powerful ending of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” this outfit plays such a great role in the movie and storytelling of Elton’s life throughout those years.

Leloo, The Fifth Element

This is the costume that launched a thousand cosplays. Not content to just wear the color orange in subtle suspender form, Leloo showed true commitment to the craft by dying her hair orange as well.

Charlie, Hereditary

Perhaps the creepiest child in recent movie memory, Charlie also has excellent fashion sense. Her bright orange sweatshirt is comfy, cozy, and perfect for standing out in a crowd or keeping you warm as you hang out the window of a speeding car gasping for air … you know, just in case that’s something you were looking for.

Effie Trinket, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Effie Trinket has many outstanding looks, but a dress made entirely of monarch butterflies is easily one of her best. The details! The headpiece! It’s almost enough to make you forget the child murder and totalitarian regime. Splendid job, Effie.
