Tangerine Tango – Pantone’s Color for 2012

tangerine tango pantone color of the year
Pantone has announced the color of the year for 2012 is 17-1463, also known as Tangerine Tango. The company describes the color as

“A spirited reddish orange [that] provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward… tangerine tango is ‘sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive….[It’s]r eminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, [the shade] marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
– Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

Tangerine Tango is definitely not a color for people who are color-shy. Before you run out and buy anything in site that’s orange, remember that a few key pops of color are all you need – just not all at once! The best way to add some tangerine is through your makeup, accessories and a statement pair of jeans – some of my favorites are pictured above…

1. Chanel Orange Fizz Nail Colour
2. MAC Lipstick in Costa Chic
3. Ksubi Jeans in Pop Orange
4. Marc Jacobs Thompson Satchel
5. Nike Free Run +2
6. Stella McCartney sandals
