Sunday Style: Tangerine Picks for Summer
Posted by Katie Ostoich on April 22, 2012 at 4:19 PM
“Tangerine Tango” was named the Color of the Year by Pantone, the color experts, and now it is everywhere! It’s been spotted on the red carpet and has infiltrated the stores for the summer season. While the reddish-orange shade is a gorgeous and bright option for summer, it can be a bit intimidating (and let's be honest: potentially unflattering). We highlighted a few fun buys that aren't terribly overwhelming and won’t take a huge bite out of your wallet if you decide you change your mind!
1. Ya Los Angeles Ladylike Dot Dress, $32
The print on this flattering ladylike dress tones down the brightness of the tangerine, making it perfect for wearing to the office when the weather heats up. Pair with a cropped cardigan for a feminine retro look when the air in your cube is chilly!
2. J. Crew Naomi Top, $98
Maybe this top isn’t for the faint of heart, but the ruffles and adorable button details are too perfect to pass up. I love this top with some dark skinny jeans and some statement jewelry for a big night out.
3. Jessica Simpson Waleo Heels, $70
Like to keep your pops of color on your feet? These sky high platforms add a serious citrus kick to any outfit. Try them with your little black dress for a sexy style update for this season.
4. MICHAEL Michael Kors Key Charms Large Wristlet, $98
Wristlets are the ultimate in convenience. Everything you need for a night fits and you don’t ever have to set it down! I love this bright option – it will go with more than you’d think! Patterns, neutrals, anything you got!
5. Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti, $8
Everyone from Jennifer Hudson to Kristen Bell has been spotted sporting a tangerine pout, making this color universally flattering. A little gun shy? This “lip butter” is essentially a lipstick-lip balm hybrid and provides a sheer hit of color.
6. Haskell Orange Bead Teardrop Earrings & Acrylic Bangle, $15 & $28
Statement jewelry is the perfect way to add some tangerine into your wardrobe without making a huge commitment. Drop earrings are a classic shape that turn modern with the use of tangerine and a bangle is always chic.
