Tangerine Tango

Written by Raina. Posted in Accessories, Trends


As many of you may know, every year the color company Pantone releases a Color of the Year. Pantone is a global company that offers color services for all things color related. Last year, the color was Honeysuckle, but this year, Pantone has determined the official color for 2012 to be Tangerine Tango, or in technical terms, PANTONE 17-1463.

I enjoy this color because it is a nice pop of color that is very vibrant and cheerful. And even though you won’t usually find me in a head to toe outfit of bright colors, I still love color, and find a way to add it into my outfits.

One way that I will be wearing Tangerine Tango, is on my nails. On myself, I always felt that reds with orange mixed in them suited me better than straight red, so Tangerine Tango is the perfect color. A similar color that I found for spring from last year, is Caliente Coral (Sephora by O.P.I.). This color is more of an orange, and to me, it screams summer, although I would wear it anytime of the year. You can find this color in many nail polish brands. I’ve seen similar colors in Essie, Revlon, Loreal, and more.

Ways to incorporate Tangerine Tango into your life:

  • In clothing, of course (tops, bottoms, dresses, etc.)
  • Swimwear
  • Makeup (lipstick, eye liner, etc.)
  • Hair dye
  • Accessories (jewelry, bags, belts, etc.)
  • Shoes
  • Electronic accessories
  • Home interior
