Tangerine Tango

06 March 2012

I've always been afraid of the color orange, I don't know if it's my pale skin or the thought of halloween (and high school, black and orange were our colors, eugh), but I just always stayed away. But since Pantone declared Tangerine Tango the 'color' of the season, it was time to step outside my 'safety net' and try something new, turns out I was missing out on such a great color, and now I just can't get enough...Especially in the form of this dress...

So how do you wear the Tango? For subtle look think neutrals like this look (here), or go bold with a bright pump or even color block with colors like fuchsia, turquoise, cobalt or purple. Not feeling the clothing side of orange, give your self a bright orange manicure or accessories with bold tangerine pieces, like necklaces,  handbags and even shoes. 

Here's How I'm wearing it. How are you?

Love this dress on you! Orange clothing tends to look odd on me, but I have some orange accessories that I love and run to when I want some of the colour.

You look great in this dress! I am also very scared of orange and I don't know if I will be able to find a way to pull it off with my red hair.

I love this dress Megan! The high-low hem on the dress is sooo chic! I'm a little afraid of orange too! I'm thinking about giving it a try....
You've pulled this color off gorgeously! :)

Love the dress, and orange looks great on you! I have the same fear about orange, that I don't look good with orange pieces, but I'm going to give it a try this spring.

This is the perfect way to wear such a bright Colour. The prints make it easy on the eye. I personally love brights :-)

I can't get enough of this dress! I have been trying to wear more orange or Tangerine but will likely stick to pop of colors with accessories.

Love this dress on you! I am feeling more like "tangerine" will be tough in apparel for me! But I will definitely pick up some accessories or jewelry. How could a skip this fun trend?!!!

A delicious dress, especially on you! The print almost reminds me of an ikat, which I love. The color of the shoes is a very nice touch as well. Really well put together!
