I recently got a burnt orange dress (A line) that looks great with my figure and skin tone. I have no idea what to wear with it though, especially if it gets cold. Black cardigans/jackets look all wrong, green looks odd as well.
Sorry to be a bit "HOC" but the Kettlewell colour chart is quite useful. Any from this page should be harmonious with burnt orange (obviously some will be a bit parrot-like for comfort) but I find it helpful in picking out new combinations: www.kettlewellcolours.co.uk/season/autumn
I have an a line burnt orange dress - I find black does go as long as there isn’t too much black (black tights look dreadful with it, for example) so I often wear mine with a short black 3/4 length sleeve collarless jacket, nude tights and very simple black heels (needs a slim heel not chunky imo). I have also worn it with a kind of tan/oatmeal coloured cardi (with gold edged buttons) and gold or nude shoes. I haven’t managed to get brown quite right with mine, all looked a bit retro Norland nanny-is
