Could this be act two of Christo's "Gates"? Men's raincoats this spring are popping up in shades of orange. How do you pull off the trend without looking like a pumpkin? The coats pictured above are already "very dramatic," says celebrity stylist George Blodwell. So you want to pair them with a more understated color--white or pale blue. Jeans are always a good bet. Follow the same fashion advice if you experiment with other orange offerings, like shoes, shirts and pants. (OK, you might want to pass on the pants.) After all, "orange is a hot color at the moment," Blodwell says. But whatever you do, avoid other citrusy tints, like green or yellow: people might think you're bananas.
