March 1, 2012: Orange is one of the must-own color this season. It was seen in heaps on the catwalk during Fashion Week last Fall, by fashion designers such as Marc by Marc Jacobs and Vivienne Tam, just to mention a few. Read further for more tips on how to pull off this spring & summer 2012 color..

Orange is also known as 'Tangerine'

If you're not into splashy colors like this bold tangerine, go for a subdued nuance such as salmon, burnt orange or terracotta. Tangerine and most bold variations of orange are highly saturated and look best on warmer skin tones and a darker hair color. So if you happen to have a Soft or Light coloring I suggest moving down the color intensity scale and opt for a medium to light shade of orange.

If you have a Cool or Cool & Deep (think Lucy Liu or Jada Pinkett) coloring, or you just know that orange isn't your color - either take a pass or invest in bottoms or accessories (or nail polish!) in this color, worn away from your face from your waist down.

Orange looks good with:

Warm beige, camel, warm yellow, pinks, purples

A delicious orange combo is accented with warm, earthy colors such as browns and golds. But can also be color-blocked with purple or bright blue for maximum style impact! I personally adore the subdued version of orange as I think it translates into a softer and more demure look.
