Leave the spring pastels, grab the tangerine!

We’re just about in the throes of spring, fashionistas—why not spark some life in that closet with a pop of tangerine? Now before you get worried you’ll look like the great pumpkin, Charlie Brown, remain calm. It might not be the typical color you look for during this time of shamrocks and Easter eggs, but tangerine has become the hottest hue this season.

And with good reason, too. Tangerine compliments any skin tone (bright shades especially flatter darker/olive skin tones, softer, muter tones look great on paler skin tones). Really, as long as you avoid the prison jumpsuit orange, you should be good.

Whether you sport a tangerine mod-inspired dress, or add a tangerine handbag to your casual look for a spark of color, you’ll instantly inject some pizzazz to any outfit. 

Check out these cute tang-looks to inspire you:
