Global colour authority Pantone has named Tangerine Tango to be the Colour of the Year for 2012. The alluring, bright reddish- orange shade is said to provide the much needed energy boost to move forward and re-charge, according to the Institute, which is a world renowned authority on colour, based out of New Jersey in the U.S.A.
Associated to sunsets, heat, fire and spices, the extremely versatile colour is said to be friendly, a little exotic, and a bit of an attention- grabber! Look for it on everything including clothing, jewelry, cosmetics and home decor. Honeysuckle, a reddish-pink, was named last year’s colour of the year and is still popular and very much in fashion.
We’ll be writing a future blog post about Spring 2012’s Fashion Colour Report which includes some really pretty and feminine shades in yellow, light green, lilac, dark and sea- inspired blues, a bold pink, and subdued neutrals.
