2012 Color of the Year: Tangerine

Blog_12_01_04_tangerine (2)
For makeup, home design, and most importantly, fashion, 2012 has been declared the year of tangerine. The deep reddish-orange color is poised to bring a much-needed surge of energy to the coming year.

Bright orange can be intimidating. Ease into it by adding a small pop of color to a classically chic outfit.  A neon La Mer watch with a simple white TEXTILE Elizabeth and James top and skinny jeans will do the trick. Turn up the volume a bit more by matching a grey T by Alexander Wang sweater with Theyskens’ Theory pants in the blazing shade. Once you’ve gotten accustomed to it, fully embrace the color of the year by pairing a 10 Crosby by Derek Lam trench and shorts in the same vibrant shade to create an eye-catching monochromatic look.
