And Colour of the Year Goes to….Tangerine Tango!

Every seasons style influencers and pros scour industry sites for a first glimpse of ‘what’s next’. I always say that in fashion, living in the present means being a season ahead of the curve!

One of the most important influences each year, and each season, is colour. Remember that scene in The Devil Wears Prada about the Cerulean Sweater? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwYZVEjlQ5Q)

OK, yes it’s extreme (and mean) but it really is pretty much how it works! However, if there is one, most important resource on colour, it is Pantone. And, each year Pantone selects the Colour of The Year! This year’s honoured hue is called ‘Tangerine Tango’ and I bet you’ve already seen it creeping into both women’s and men’s wear haven’t you?

Oranges are fairly challenging to wear, but it is here for 2012, so here are a few creative ways to add it into your wardrobe. Don’t be shy, it’s time to tango. 😉
