Tangerine Tango was just named as the color of 2012. How can you wear it? Here's 10 ways! Have some fun with this vibrant and bold color throughout the year!
"Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango 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."
It's all about energy. It's all about passion. It's all about awakening the confidence within and bringing it out! I love that all this can be portrayed through fashion. What I love most about Tangerine Tango is that you can easily leave a lasting fashion impression with this color by simply adding some dashes into your wardrobe -- you don't have to go overboard.
OK, ladies... here are 10 easy ways to wear Tangerine Tango throughout 2012:
I love the add-on of a scarf
because it's so easy to pull off for any body, any shape. The brightness of the tangerine in this scarf is perfect. Add it to a pair of jeans and a tee or toss over your fave Little Black Dress!
Tangerine Ballet Flat
Such a simple way to bring in this fabulous color. Add gorgeous flats
to khakis, jeans, skirts and summer sundresses. They're so classic and elegant, yet give off a trendy vibe.
Tangerine Nail Polish
If you're feeling particularly bold, polish away! This would be a wonderful statement color
for the summer months ahead, it's fun and fabulous!
If you're a handbag girl, you'll love adding a tangerine bag
into your closet this year. The look is sophisticated and adds such a playful flair to a look.
I'm all about bringing in some color and energy and passion through accessories

Tangerine Bathing Suit
Oh, talk about the perfect color for the beach! I love the beauty and boldness of a swimsuit
in tangerine. It's such a stunning color for the summer.
Tangerine Beach Cover-up
If you're not comfortable sporting a tangerine bathing suit at the beach or the pool, opt for a tangerine cover-up

Every season, I love buying one jacket that is a very bold color. I think it adds such a sense of fun to my wardrobe. I love seeing a coat
