Juicy Tangerine…Do you like to Tango??

Tangerine! It was the Pantone Colour of the Year 2012 and is out to Tango for a few more seasons yet! It’s a more vibrant version of orange and when worn right, it can give even the gloomiest day a warm, fresh vibe!  This ‘vitamin charged’ hue projects confidence and warmth, strength and happiness.
It’s a high energy colour and whatever you combine it with, it will make your outfit ‘pop’!
If you are bolder in style, embrace it with one strong piece (ie. A dress, blazer of pants) or use it as an accent in accessories for something a little more subtle.

For everyday casual dressing; wear tangerine as a top and tone it down with a blazer, cardi or other jacket. Combining tangerine with black is a more dramatic look with high contrast, whereas combining it will lighter neutrals will tone it down for a more subtle contrast.

Want to go all out in Tangerine?  Team up a Tangerine dress with ‘Inky blue bag, belt and shoes. 
This is a sophisticated look and the blue tempers the vividness of the dress.  Black would be too stark and a harsher look.  Opt for warm golden accents in your accessories rather than cool silver for instant glam!

For high drama….team up Tangerine with hot pink, icy blue, mint green or neon yellow!  This allows the shade to take centre stage and really intensifies its impact….Go forth oh brave one!!
