Tricks and Trends: Tangerine for 2012

I haven’t always been a fan of orange shades but with the explosion of coral last summer, I totally fell in love with it! For 2012, ‘tangerine tango’ was name colored of the year by Pantone experts. It’s a long process that takes place until they decide every year on the color that will be attributed to it; it starts with checking the general trends on the runways. Then, there’s also a huge deliberation around the name to give to that color in question.

This year, tangerine tango is described as “a spirited reddish orange that continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.” While last year, it was the “courageous” and “confident” honeysuckle (or camel/nude) that took over our lives.

This reddish-orange is surely a color that will make an impact whether in fashion, design or interior architecture trends. Pantone also said that it’s important to pick such a color that would give anyone a boost to move forward when the entire world is going through a harsh economic downturn.

When I’ve previously covered for you the SS12 fashion weeks, it was clear that this color was ruling it all. Here are few extra pictures that you can click on to enlarge.

This of course extends to beauty products with orange and flash coral lipstick, lip pencil, blush and nail polish. We might already feel as if we’ve adopted that trend, but it looks like it’s going to an even higher level! And we love that, don’t we.

Fashionably yours,
