Every season there are styles that become huge trends, but this effect also occurs with colors. This season, the color of spring is tangerine! The bright and bold shade of orange is the perfect color to make a statement this spring. While tangerine can be a tough color to pull off, trying out this trend in accessories is a good way to stay on trend.

I found this Fashionista going to lunch with her friends in a casual and preppy look. She paired mint shorts (another big color for spring) with a white lace top. The addition of her tangerine necklace from J.Crew instantly adds a cool, unexpected color contrast. The bright color of the necklace works well with its simple drop design to create a very versatile accessory. Tangerine works really well with a variety of color, including its complementary color, blue.

Tangerine accessories can be found in a variety of stores this spring. This Urban Outfitters cross-body bag is another way to make tangerine very wearable. I also love this La Mer wrap watch, a super trendy accessory as wrap watches are very popular right now too. A bright bag or necklace is the way to wear this trend, especially since the color can be challenging for certain skin tones. Don’t forget about your accessories when trying out new trends!
