A Pop of Tangerine For 2012

Pantone Color Institute has announced that the color of 2012 is a blend of red, blood orange and coral tones aptly named Tangerine Tango. I am not sure if I am excited or psyched about the news because I do not have a single tangerine tango-colored item in my wardrobe. I however like the color because of the energy it exudes. I bet it would look great with almost every skin tone. Maybe it is time to add a little “wild” color in my closet.

Pantone’s predictions influence all manner of consumer product manufacturers from cosmetic companies to paint suppliers. Known as Pantone 17-463 among members of the interior and fashion design community (and simply “Tangie” to family and friends),tangerine tango is described by the color-matching company as “a vivacious, enticing hue,” “a provocative go-getter” that’s “a bit exotic, but in a very friendly, non-threatening way” and “a spirited reddish orange … [s]ophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive.” –Source
