Hi Teodor,

I believe you got as far as adding the label. Your code should look like so:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color:</label>
      <select for="color" id="color" name="shirt_color" >
          <option value="red">Red</option>
          <option value="yellow">Yellow</option>
          <option value="purple">Purple</option>
          <option value="blue">Blue</option>
          <option value="green">Green</option>
          <option value="orange">Orange</option>
      </select>
      <button type="submit">Place Order</button>
    </form>
  </body>
</html>

Hope this helps, Shaun
