Orange is the New Black

by Farra

It’s not even January 1st, but Pantone has already revealed its prediction for what the hottest hue of 2012 will be. And it is… drum roll please… ORANGE! “Tangerine Tango” to be exact. According to InStyle magazine, “factors that went into the decision include runway shows, fabric shows, pop culture, and shoppers’ habits.” I wonder if they look at celebrity trends, too…

Orange is bright, happy, and fun. While I don’t own nearly enough of it in my wardrobe, I do love it on my nails (Essie’s Meet Me at Sunset) and lips (Revlon’s Orange Flip). What do you think – would you rock this sunny shade?

P.S… are you playing Secret Santa at work or attending a holiday party with a gift exchange? Need something that would work for anyone? This Pantone mug is perfectly adorable and comes in all of the Pantone colors. Easy peasy.
