Pantone, the international color authority, has just announced the color of the year for 2012: Tangerine Tango. This vivacious and appealing reddish orange is meant to provide a sense of zest and vigor to pull through difficult times. Tangerine Tango is a color with a lot of depth, marrying the heart pounding rush of red with the warmth and vibrancy of yellow to create a magnetic color of boundless energy and sparkle.
An eye catching shade, Tangerine Tango is poised to become incorporated into a number of high fashion lines for the spring and summer and likely to transition well into fall, the traditional domain of orange hues. It will also be popping up in cosmetics as well as in interior and home design.
Because too much of the shade can be overwhelming, Tangerine Tango works well in combination with other shades such as blues, greens and browns or as an accent color which is why it is the perfect shade for accessories, especially jewelry. Something as simple as a lively orange necklace will breathe life into a tired outfit, bringing modern sophistication and adding energy and sparkle. Several well placed orange accessories have the power to make you shine in 2012 so take advantage!
In Swarovski crystals, you will find a range of gorgeous shades of orange that can be used independently or in combination to create that Tangerine Tango effect. Colors such as Padparadscha, Sun, Fire Opal and Hyacinth turn up the heat with their unrelenting vibrancy and are perfect for accessories such as earrings, necklaces and bracelets and work as a beautiful counterpoint to a darker outfit in, for example, navy blue or black. You can also check out our selection of special coatings, especially Chili Pepper, for an exciting and hard to find take on that fabulous orange glow.
