I don't think I ever officially thanked Pantone for naming Tangerine Tango the 2012 color of the year. Thank you Pantone! I'm thrilled that the invigorating red-orange hue has made itself from the fashions of this past Spring/Summer onto the Fall runways and into stores.
From Coach's structured handbag to Band of Outsiders' wool jacket, we can take a sigh of relief that Tangerine Tango is here to stay another season. My current closet obsession is a fire orange Parker silk peplum bustier blouse (seen on me above and *on sale here*), which I will be happily wearing into fall with a leather pencil skirt.
