Dare To Tangerine Tango: It Color For Spring/Summer 2012

Let's be frank....Any shade of orange or red screams, "Look at me!"

And if you're a bit shy, well, you're going to have to get over it, because Tangerine Tango is the new 'IT' color for Spring/Summer 2012. The shade is described as radiant red-orange, and it has burst onto the scene in the worlds of beauty, fashion, and home design.

Says who?

The well-respected Pantone Color Institute.

"Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it," says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. "Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."

The color of Tangerine Tango has been seen everywhere....on the runways, on the models, on handbags, shoes, tops, dresses, and as bold shades for lipstick, cheeks, and nails, etc.

Will you dare to Tangerine Tango?

Maybe you could try just one accessory in the fiery red-orange color, or in a pair of earrings, or just go for it, and settle on a Tangerine Tango-colored dress. You WILL get noticed.

We found a couple of beauty products featuring the 'It' shade for the year. Check these out next time you're shopping:
