According to the Los Angeles Times, on December 8 “Pantone announced that a shade of orange dubbed “tangerine tango” is set to take top honors as the 2012 color of the year, inheriting the crown from 2011’s reigning hue, honeysuckle.”
The color was chosen among the interior design and fashion community because of its enticing and exotic tang. The color is dramatic and refreshing but will pose a challenge to fashion lovers choosing to pair tangerine with other colors. Orange may be tricky to pull off but you have a whole year to perfect it before bubblicious blue or putrid pink take over the color heirarchy.
