We love color so much at InStyle, we dedicated our entire April issue to it! And we’re taking our obsession one step further right here, by giving you a Color of the Day on InStyle.com, complete with How to Wear It tips.

TODAY’S COLOR: MUSKMELON

SIMILAR TO:
Rust, orange.

WHY WE LOVE IT:
Orange’s pretty cousin, this almost pastel shade reminds us of the juicy fruit from which it borrows its name.

GOES GREAT WITH:
Leafy greens, earth tones.

DIP YOUR TOE IN:
Essie’s polish in the hue is a fun alternative to red. Try Essie’s Brazilliant ($8, essie.com).

GO HEAD-TO-TOE MUSKMELON:
Slip into this silk Equipment blouse and pair it with skinny trousers ($208, equipmentfr.com).
