Hi!

My apologises for this topic coming in a bit late. but its better late than never, right> LOL! Anyway, I found out in March, as fashion week was rounding up, that the Pantone Colour for 2012 is “Tangerine”!

What is the colour of Tangerine?

Well, I’m sure we have figured out it is not the fruit I am speaking of, no. Tangerine is part of the Orange colour family. It’s a deep shade of orange, reddish orange as some would like to describe it.

So I got curious and went investgating on which colours are the members of the orange family, and here are some of my results. one is the  colour palette which I made above and other I found which is hues of Aqua which can be combined with Tangerine hues.

In lame Nigerian lame man terms, that best way to describe this “Zesty Orange”, is to say it as “Fanta Orange.” I lie? Lol!

Here is an inspiration board I found, that has Tangerine Tango with Hot Pink and Lemon Yellow, making all the colours POP!. Check it out.
