This Spring 2012, we can expect to see an exciting shift in color. The color of the year, according to Pantone, is tangerine dream, and we are loving this bold orangey-hue. It’s fun, fresh, and most importantly, has character. Worn alone or mixed with other colors, it contrasts beautifully against other bold hues like turquoise, yellow, or pink. It’s sophisticated, seductive, and screams confidence; the kind of attitude we want to bring with us in the new year. Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, says that the color “provides the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.” We’re excited to give you a sneak peak at Spring 2012 arrivals in this bright hue and variations of it. Tangerine-tone jewelry is the perfect way to rock the color for those who prefer to not dress in an all-tangerine dress or blazer- We love it because it’s a more subtle approach, but still makes a statement. We’re really looking forward to seeing pops of this color this upcoming Spring- it’s lively, fashion-forward, and inspires us all to be happy, strong, and confident. See below for a sneak peak at where you will find hints of this wonderful tangerine hue in jewels from Miguel Ases, Anton Heunis, LK Jewelry, Sara Weinstock, Coralia Leets, and Colette.
