|Pantone Color of the Year, 2012|
Of course, there are plenty of other choices!
You can download a pdf report from Pantone free at this link, and you'll see the above chart in much better detail. As we've discussed before, I know that not all of you pay attention to color and fashion trends, but for those who do, I think it's clear that the rest of the palette is much cooler than this warm reddish orange. So what to do? Stock up on gold, copper, and warm metal findings? Stick with the color palette you like best? Work with the extended analogous palette or the complementary one? Some bluey green jewelry would certainly make a Tangerine Tango dress pop!
