I recently noticed that I have a disproportionate number of orange pieces in my wardrobe – see here, here and here. I have always liked the color, especially the slightly burnt variation. It exudes a warmth more complex than the obvious yellow and a femininity more evolved than the girly pink. I use it a lot as an accent around the house as well.
So I was excited to learn that Pantone has declared Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year. Pantone describes it as a spirited reddish orange – sophisticated, dramatic and seductive. In other words, it’s fashion’s dream.
And that dream is coming true in every department of fashion and beauty. This was a particularly difficult collage for me because I just couldn’t choose from so many beautiful orange pieces. But I finally did, and here it is.
