Because orange is the national colour.

It is their national colour because of their royal family - the House of Oranje-Nassau -- dates back to Willem van Oranje (William of Orange).

Today the colour orange symbolizes a broader pride in the country and in being Dutch.

What shade of jerseys do soccer teams were when home?

It really depends on what their colors are. Usually, a team will have a white uniform that has their team color as an accent for one uniform and their team colors will be on the other one. Or, they will wear one color on top and their other color on the bottom for home and then switch it for away. Like say the team's colors are orange and blue then they may wear blue on top and orange on bottom for home games and orange on top and blue on bottom for away games. Each team has different colors so they all have different colored jerseys.
