STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Orange You Excited For Summer?

As we count down the days until summer, many Fashionistas have found themselves tangoing their ways through the days. Not literally of course, but with the Pantone color of the year: tangerine tango. I must admit I was never a fan of orange, however this season has changed my mind. I spotted this chic Fashionista in a tangerine orange top paired with sleek white shorts. This orange created a new depth to her ensemble; not only is it bold and dramatic, but also friendly and warm.

Nanette Lepore sent a fresh collection down the runway for spring 2012. Filled with bright colors, these looks are what got me on the tangerine train. This Fashionista chose a tangerine orange top with florals. I love how the floral print adds an exotic feel to the ensemble. She looks sophisticated yet ready for a good time. Purchased at a local Fort Collins boutique, Cira Ltd., this Fashionista finds great pieces right in her backyard.

According to Pantone, tangerine tango “emanates heat and energy.” This Fashionista complements this zest with a classic pair of white shorts. The tangerine orange on top brings out the drama of pairing this bold color with these refined shorts. Not only does orange pop with this neutral color, but as summer approaches it is a great time to mix and match prints and bright colors on top as well.

Can’t get enough of this tangerine orange? Pair any ensemble with a glossy nail lacquer in this hot color. My personal favorite brand is Dior or essie. Now to shield the eyes from your own radiating allure, TOMS has produced a great line of eyewear with shades to match any ensemble. So prepare yourself for summer, from the looks of this Fashionista’s ensemble it’s going to be an exotic adventure.
