Shameful to say, but I never knew that such a thing as the official color of the year even existed. But apparently The Pantone Institute has been choosing it each year already for more than a decade, influencing development in many industries such as fashion, home, industrial and graphic design. Tangerine Tango (pantone #17-1463) was officially announced as the star of 2012!

So selecting the color of the year is quite a thoughtful and thorough process that considers many factors like social and economic situations, new technologies, popular vacation destinations, hot new artists and upcoming films. That’s why in today's difficult and unstable political and economic conditions The Pantone Institute felt that warm and energetic Tangerine Tango is the one for 2012. This reddish orange is the embodiment of high spirit and strong will along with friendliness and sophistication.

Vivid and eye-catching, Tangerine along with all its possible shades was quickly picked up by fashion designers who have incorporated it in their 2012 collections. Bright and fun, orange is an amazing color for spring and summer and of course so classic and a must-have for fall.

While being quite universal in clothing and accessories, in make-up orange is not always flattering. Easy to pull off in nail polish or blush it can be tricky in lipstick or eye shadow. That’s why if you want to give it a try but are not quite sure how Sephora’s PANTONE Universe events could be very useful for you. Pop-up Color shops with a new limited edition collection inspired by Tangerine Tango and experienced make-up artist teams will help you find just the right way to inject this bright hue in your look.

Guess? has an amazing assortment of pieces with different shades of orange – from dresses and tops to shoes and jewelry. Some bright, some dimmer, there are definitely a few ones for you!
