Whether dressing up for a party or just hanging out with friends, it’s a cute idea for moms and daughters to wear similar, color-coordinated outfits. This season, get into citrus shades like tangerine — the hottest color of 2012.
Tangerine Tango was named Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2012 and, since that time, we have seen shades of tangerine and orange popping up everywhere in everything from fashion to home decor. Vibrant and bright, tangerine makes a bold fashion statement that both you and your daughter will love.

Tangerine print dresses
Prints are all the rage this season. Pick a tangerine dress in a unique print for yourself and your little girl. You’ll love the Milly Naomi printed knit dress. This sleeveless dress is sophisticated and chic with its zigzag print and classic shift silhouette. For your daughter, we found the exact same dress in toddler and little girls’ sizes. Check out the Milly Minis dress ($130). Both dresses are available now at Saks.com.
For casual wear, slip into a tangerine tee. You can team up your tee with everything from skinny jeans to white shorts. For mom, the Kensie short sleeve stretch tee ($41) is a must-have. It features flutter sleeves and a figure-flattering shape. Your daughter will love this cute Little Miss T-shirt ($18). It’s available in sizes XS-XL at Amazon.com.
Mother-daughter swimwear is cute whether you are on vacation or in your own backyard pool. Land’s End offers some adorable swimsuits for girls. We love the gathered side-tie swimsuit ($35) in the dark tangerine, tropical floral print. For mom, check out the Gottex Anthea swimsuit ($168) with its tangerine geometric/floral mandala print. Available at Neiman Marcus, this suit features a classic silhouette with all the coverage you want.
Tangerine is a very bold color. So if you want to wear it in small doses, do it with handbags, jewelry, accessories and shoes. For summertime, slip into a pair of thong sandals in a beautiful shade of tangerine. For mothers and teens, we adore the MICHAEL Michael Kors ‘Hamilton’ sandals ($98) from Nordstrom. These adorable shoes feature a minimalist style but the color really makes them stand out. For your daughter, consider the Burberry jelly thong sandals ($85). Available at Saks, these cute sandals come in toddler and little girls’ sizes.
