Tangerine Tango

Pantone announced that Tangerine Tango is the color of 2012. I was only a couple shades off with my professed love for subtler emberglow.

It's a bold color, that's for sure. I think it is best in small doses, making an impact in neutral territory--unless you really want to stand out. I could see see this hue as a great color for my lips or toes on a tropical vacation. (Essie Clambake.)


  1. As it so happens, I had two perfect skeins of malabrigo silky wool in tangerine just waiting for pantone's pronouncement. what would go well with that grau/grey/gris wardrobe? a bandana cowl? a beret? fingerless gloves?

  2. Well, you are fashion forward and prepared. I think a bit of tangerine worn on wrists and poking out of a winter jacket could be fun.
