Hey Pantone 2012 Color of Year, Tangerine Tango! This color rocks my world. It’s so bright and cheery. I can’t imagine this color looking bad on anyone. Put it next to tan skin, pale skin, dark hair, blonde locks — it’s a bright pop of color everyone needs in their wardrobe. Expect all major brands and retailers to be stocking their shelves full of this perfect reddish orange for Spring. It’s dramatic, yet sophisticated. Playful and preppy. Tangerine Tango, Poppy and Killer Tomato are all names for this gorgeous shade.
