Pantone Colour of the Year: Tangerine Tango 17-1463 TCX

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Pantone® announced that 'Tangerine Tango' aka 17-1463 TCX is the colour of 2012. Pantone wanted to have something bolder this coming year, than its past few years successors. This colour is meant to 'provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward'.

This colour was plastered all over the Spring/Summer 2012 runway's with the majority of the designers sending down at least one outfit with a splash of Tangerine. Whether it was whole outfits, or touches of the colour on accessories.

It certainly wakes me up as soon as I look at this reddish-orange colour. I personally am not a orange fan, it makes me look a bit ill. However accessories are a good way to introduce this colour into your wardrobe if you are not feeling to brave to wear an all over tangerine coloured dress or blazer!

  1. I don't really like orange BUT I've got admit that the shoes are really really nice. I also like the shirt. Not sure if I would wear it though I'm more of a blue girl ahaha!

  2. I love tangerine and I just wish I had the skin tone to pull it off! I reckon I could get away with accessories though which is good as I am absolutely loving the satchel and the shoes

  3. I know what you mean! With my skin tone orange would be very hard to pull off.

  4. Hi Mia, this colour would look lovely on you!!
