What is it about tangerines and oranges? Add them to a simple white bowl in your kitchen and you’ve got a pop of gorgeous color that announces summertime. Peel one open and the citrus smell offers a simple and happy moment that represents, well…summertime. So it’s little wonder that tangerine is a go-to summer color that cuts a bold statement without being overpowering.
Whether you wear the color as shorts, in a bright, beautifully cut simple A-line dress, or in fun and thoughtful accessories, this yummy hue makes a great statement. It’s such a smart and clean color — confident in it’s depth and yet elegant without being showy. Oddly enough, tangerine pairs well with a variety of colors, including nude, turquoise and various shades of blue. It looks quite sharp with black or white and even some green.
And as always — if the budget, time constraints or closet confines don’t offer tangerine basics, then think accessories. Add a tangerine scarf to a simple white tee. Consider some tangerine flats or sandals to pair with basic shorts. Or how about springing for a cute orange bag for some summer color?
