Tangerine Tango Remix and the Great Pumpkin

You didn’t think I could get through the month of October and not do a post on Tangerine Tango did you? To keep it simple I thought we could do a quick remix that comes from the beginning days of As Time Goes…Buy.

Back in March when I first started writing about my love of fashion one of the first things I shared with you was my passion for the colour orange, which for 2012 had been renamed Tangerine Tango. I didn’t care what it was called as long as there were lots of ways to wear it because it’s a colour I have loved since the 70s! As tomorrow is Halloween, a traditional day honouring Pumpkin (just another name for orange), it seems appropriate to revisit my favourite colour.

Splashes of Tangerine Tango: If head-to-toe Tangerine Tango is too full on for you, try using it to add a hit of colour to your look with accessories.

Pumpkin Passion for Autumn 2012

Pumpkin Passion: For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere, mixing pumpkin with browns, blacks and beige help tone down the colour and make it more wearable for Autumn 2012.

That’s me in the middle pic, J-brand skinny jeans, Cue ice-blue shirt, Glassons tangerine tango cardigan, my favourite orange suede wedges and an orange envelope clutch.

Tangerine Tango Remix: Here’s a revisit of three of my early 2012 looks using Tangerine Tango that are just as on-trend now as they were six months ago. Look 1) Orange jersey dress from Target, blue tweed jacket from H & M, blue Charming Charlie handbag and navy blue satin Glamour Puss shoes. Look 2) Vintage look orange light weight wool dress from TJ Maxx, tan trench coat and leopard wedges from Target, vintage leopard print scarf and vintage alligator handbag. Look 3) Orange pencil skirt from Glassons, blue and white print shirt from H & M, pumpkin coloured light-weight sweater from Hong Kong, vintage brown and orange scarf, orange bag from L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion week (give away – came filled with goodies) and my Django and Juliette wedges.

I’m ever so thankful that Tangerine Tango/Pumpkin is still a popular colour! I have tons of it in my wardrobe and love to wear it.

How are you going to be wearing it this Spring? Or Autumn?
