orange for spring/summer 2012...gag reflex engaging

I've never really been a fan of the spring/summer shows. It's probably because I have such a strong preference for layers and heavy textures - wools, hides, knits, etc. The s/s shows also lay it on really heavy with the bright colors which I personally tend to avoid...I just love dark outfits - regardless of the trend, regardless of the season. What's the color trend this season? Oh, only my least favorite color in the ENTIRE world:

It's loud and obnoxious...orange gives me a headache like a grandma at a rave. Is it actually going to be a trend next year? Well, the fall/winter shows had an insane amount of emerald green and nothing ever really happened with that so who knows. But in case you love orange (hey mom), here's the go-ahead to indulge come 6 months from now.
