Just like how all the cool kids back in my day (because I’m so old now) were taking online college classes in school (so they can skip out on actually being in class and fall victim to procrastination) the color tangerine can kind of do the same — easily give you what you need (style), so you can focus on other things (boys).
Tangerine has been named one of the it colors this year, and spring marks a great season to add this color to your wardrobe. Although this bright color adds a pop of happiness to your outfit, it can be intimidating and may be fatal to the weak. But, it does look damn good. Want to see how you can make this trend work for you?

If you tend to shy away from bright colors, try adding just a pop of tangerine to your outfit. Bright orange handbags and accessories look great with neutrals, and tangerine also compliments shades of blue and gold beautifully. If you’re obsessed with shoes like me, try orange shoes with denim or khaki. You can also wear this color as a statement piece on your nails or jewelry. Adding tangerine in any one of these ways will definitely brighten up your outfit!
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can venture into wearing a bit more than just a pop of tangerine. Tangerine looks great on dark skin, olive skin, and fair skin tones, and since we’re moving into the warmer part of the year, one of the best places to wear tangerine is at the beach or pool, so get your tan on! An orange bathing suit makes a strong statement, and gives the skin a beachy glow. If the idea of orange Lycra scares you, try a tangerine-colored cover up. The flowy fabric looks especially great over navy or white bathing suits.
There are many other ways to bring tangerine into your everyday wardrobe. One great option is a tangerine trench coat. Brightly colored coats are a great hit in the spring, and a bold jacket like this can be worn on top of any outfit to really kick it up a notch. If you normally stick with wearing neutrals, tangerine outerwear is an easy way to incorporate color into your look. You? Boring? Never. Tangerine colored sweaters are also a good option and look great with jeans or neutral trousers. Try a tangerine t-shirt or tank-top under a neutral toned cardigan and if you’re a real tangerine lover, try rocking a dress in this tone. This is a real attention grabber, and looks good on most skin tones. Try pairing it with neutral shoes and gold jewelry. If you’re daring, tangerine shoes with a tangerine dress make a real statement.
Whether or not you’ll be taking some online classes or distance education courses, I assure you that incorporating tangerine into your wardrobe is much more fulfilling and exciting. So, to tangerine or not?
