For reasons unstated yet understandable, the color orange is actually the least desired hue among most adults. However, I’ve been observing a lot of pops of orange emerging among fine leather handbags and ready-to-wear pieces that are so cute and fabulous that it just makes you want to dress yourself in orange from head to toe. While browsing some of the holiday collection at Michael Kors, I could not help but notice the multiple burnt orange colored handbags and wallets in the display window. I went on to notice the color in other window displays of other big names. I did some research online and found that many styles of clothing had the “tangerine option” in case you wanted to branch out beyond the usual black, white, or navy.
Although I liked the color as a child and outgrew it very quickly, I do think that it has an attention-grabbing and fierce quality about it that is going to be more popular than you may think when the winter blues wash away. I might be jumping the gun on color forecasting, but the bright tangerine color is one that I think is sure to be a hit for spring/summer. We all need a little orange in our wardrobes sometimes, right?
