Pantone's Fashion Color of the Year - Tangerine Tango

Hmmmm! How do you feel about that? Tangarine Tango is the forecast color of 2012, so says the color experts, Pantone. I'm not sure how I feel about orange as a hot color this year. Oh, come one.... tangerine .... orange.  Potato ... Po Tat To. It's orange! Nevertheless, it is suppose to be a hot color this year and even I want to be ready.

I think Tangarine Tango is wonderful to chic up those drab winter colors! Instead of running out and getting a full ensemble of orange that would just be a shock to any system and possibly send the "fashion police" to your door to issue a warning, try a bit of accessorizing first. Baby steps. Here are a few items that I found that won't break your wallet or get you arrested.

Leather Envelope Clutch $19
Sperry Rain Boots  $60

Deco Ring - Blonde Chick $22

OPI Nail - A Good Man-darin ... $12

FineThreadz Ruffle Top $35

Michael Kors Ostrich Bag $398

As you can see,  you really don't have to break the bank to add a little Tangerine Tango to your life. You can take this as far as you want .... or at least as far as your Visa card will allow. When I went searching for some of the best items I could find in orange....ahem.... Tangerine Tango, I really was overwhelmed. There are so many gorgeous fashion pieces to be found in this color.  If you have a favorite, please share! I'd love to see it.

 As you can see I've added my own contribution to what is sure to be a wonderful fashion craze this year! However,  if Tangarine Tango isn't your thing, I also offer my ruffle top in 15 other colors! I don't do girly very much. My designs lean more of the side of sexy or practical. I guess there's been no middle ground with me. Certainly no room for romantic or feminine. This time I wanted to try something soft. Something with a little flow without the frilly. Sorry. I hate frilly. Well I hate it today. But who knows where my design evolution will take me as time goes by.

Great collection of tangerine tango!
I must say this color is a big improvement over last year's Honeysuckle Pink:)
Congrats on your terrific blog, Sharon!

Unfortunately, I'll have to agree with you on that. The Honeysuckle was so vague! And what color was that again?
