Pantone Color of 2012: Tangerine Tango

Add a little spice to your wardrobe with Pantone’s color of 2012, Tangerine Tango—it’s as bold and vivacious as Buenos Aires.

A dash deeper and more dramatic than Honeysuckle (the color of 2011), Tangerine Tango is “sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive.…Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, [it] marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow,” says Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®.

Whether you go for a pop of color or a daring, more allover look, here are a few Editor’s Picks to get you kicking up your heels with a little Latin American flair.
