It Takes Two to Tango – Tangerine

You know by now that I love Tangerine and Purple together (I’m just no longer brave enough to wear it! Well, often!). But other colours that work well with this juicy hue are Navy or Camel for a more sophisticated look and Hot Pink or Icy Blue if you are feeling really brave!

Look how elegant and sophisticated the Tangerine looks with gold and brown accessories. Of course being worn by Giovanna Battaglia at Paris FWSS 2012 would lend a lot of sophistication to any colour!

I also really like how well the orange and camel work for the these two retro 40s looks. As if they were always meant to be together.

Continuing on the more classic path, we’ll see how well Navy tangos with the Tangerine.

I love how grown up and sophisticated this look is, and really it’s jeans, an orange shirt, camel coat and navy accessories. Fairly basic but still glorious. My look was for a day out in Melbourne. The Fashion Mister and I had reservations for dinner at MoMo (love Greg Malouf! and had to be there for his last night). We went to the city early to pick up a few home purchases made on our last trip, then I had to wander through the GPO to at least be surrounded by fashion, even if I couldn’t buy it! I noticed there was a fair bit of Tangerine Tango in just about every store and most had it paired with navy so I was feeling very on-trend! As a reward for not buying anything the Fashion Mister treated me to my two other favourite things at KoKo Black…coffee and chocolate! Notice the HUGE smile on my face.

My shirt and nail polish touch a little on the Tangerine Tango and Ice Blue combo that is a variation on the orange and navy that you can already see works so well.

By now you have probably figured out that with this colour combination it’s all about playing with the shades and intensities. And nearly impossible to get wrong!

My final suggestion was Tangerine Tango and Hot Pink. As you can see, this combination has heaps of pizzazz! You would think it takes a lot of courage to wear but you may recall that the long vintage skirt I wore in the last series, Free-Spirited – Gypsy Look, was this very combination. So if I can wear it, you can too! Again, play with the shades and intensity if the full on brights seem too overwhelming. The point is, PLAY, have fun and let this sun-kissed shade touch your life!
