How To Tackle The Trend: Tangerine Tango

March 27th, 2012 by Christen

If you are looking to breathe new life into your spring wardrobe, the color trend of the season is undoubtedly orange. As Pantone’s 2012 color of the year, Tangerine Tango, a vibrant reddish orange hue, has popped up all over the red carpets, runways, cars & is celebrities “go-to” color of the season!

As Tangerine Tango can be a tricky shade to wear, MyHabit Senior Fashion Editor, Jenny Feldman shares her tips and tricks of the trade.

“One of my favorite spring essentials is always the classic white jean. The crisp bottoms look fresh paired with a bright tangerine tee and a pair of matte, hand-worked leather sandals…”

Supermodel Elle Macpherson pairs white jeans with Tangerine Tango orange top...

“Complement with another juicy fruit color, such as corally pink, lemon or aqua. This season is all about color-blocking, which can be created by wearing 2-3 bold colors and layering appropriately…”

Celebrity Stylist & Star of VH1's 'Styled By June' rocks the colorblocking trend effortlessly pairing a tangerine blazer with vibrant purple slacks.


“Update your handbag. Spring is the ideal time for a bag that doesn’t take itself too seriously, so trade your winter black bag for a tangerine-hued satchel or tote in pebbled leather or a durable fabric.”

Nothing says springtime fab than this Michael Kors Bowlng Bag!


“Punch up your khakis with tangerine accents. This will add playfulness to your weekend look, whether it’s casual shorts, cargos or preppy chinos.”
