Yuppie Trend Report: tangerine

In case you hadn’t heard, Pantone declared 2012 the year of tangerine.

They describe the color as a reddish-orange and is

“Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”

Bet you didn’t know you could get all that from a color, huh?

So tangerine is going to be everywhere. But if  you’re like me, any shade of orange is going to make you look sickly. Year of Tangerine or not, that’s never a cute look.

So here’s three ways you can wear the color, whether its a subtle hint for pale girls like me or if your skin tone will allow a full on orange glow.

{Though maybe lay off the fake tan. No oompa-loompa looks!}
