Since Pantone announced that tangerine would be the color of 2012, there is no surprise that this orange hue stay hot from spring till now. And there is a reason that this shade is beloved throughout the fashion world: from luxurious lables like Hermès to departments stores (like Neiman Marcus). It’s such a beautiful and extreme color: combines the glamour of red and optimism of yellow. It’s modern, easy-going and eye-catching.
If you are wary of bright color, start from accessories, like the gorgeous orange Mulberry bag or a bright tangerine knit scarf; After you feel comfortable with it, move to your clothes: either a light-weight pullover sweater which is ideal for now or a orange floral maxi skirt that can be stylishly transformed into fall.
For some of you that embrace brights, I will say go bold and wear an orange ensemble. But try to mix different textures, or add edgy accessories to balance the sweet color. Remember, opposite is attractive.
Below are my favorite three outfits for this fall. About outfit No.1, I like to team an orange sweater with a leopard bag and spike necklace which can add an edgy vibe to the sweater. The cute subtle bows on these comfy flats speak romance and femininity.
As a nod to this season’s embellished trend, I can’t wait to try this jacquard mini skirt. Play color block by adding a bright and super affordable orange knit scarf. The of-the-moment sunglasses add a retro glamour.

Outfit No.3 is a great office look. This two-tone dress is definitely a staple. It’s so slimming and elegance. By changing accessories, it can accompany us on countless occasions. This orange leather bag totally transformed the whole look. Orange-grey is the newest color combo which replaced the dated hot-pink and grey combination.
Hope you enjoy it and talk to you soon!
