A new year, a new Pantone color. Honeysuckle is out and Tangerine Tango is in as Pantone’s official Color of 2012. It’s already been seen all over the runways for Spring and Summer – and I am loving it! Its bright, bold, juicy and vibrant – all of the things spring and summer colors should be. I feel like just looking at this color makes me feel brighter, happier and more energized. Well done, Pantone.
Just looking at the designs on the runways is getting me excited to wear this color already – pretty sure that the big tulle ball gown is my favorite.
I think Tangerine looks especially great with tan, cream and white shades that really contrast and set off the brilliance of this rich orange. I’m not sure I would go as bold as Jessica Biel, below, but I do love the little Tangerine dress idea that Gwyneth is sporting.
I’ve already chosen a few pieces for my wardrobe in this year’s hottest and most popular color, and as great of a spring and summer shade as it is, I don’t think I am going to be able to wait that long to wear it. You can start rocking this trend right away with a glossy lip or bright nail polish. If it’t not your shade, or you don’t do bright colors, you can always do a lacy bra underneath a scoop neck tank, a pop of color on espadrilles or my personal favorite, an amazing saddle bag!
Are you going to wear 2012′s color of the year?
