Two to Tango
Pantone Color Institute, a US based company, which singles out one color annually that is expected to have a bold impact on fashion and home decor for the next 12 months and declares it “Color of the Year”. For 2012, Tangerine Tango, a radiant red-orange has been decided as the colour of the year. Keeping in view the economic environment and frustration, this bright reddish-orange haze is expected to jazz up a little and add some energy to cope with the difficult times and move forward.
This colour is befitting the mood as it is a combination of ‘passion and adreline rush’ of red meeting ‘soft friendliness’ of yellow to create a very happy cheerful colour. This is determined keeping in view many aspects such a industry trends, preference shown by fashion designers and psychological understanding of general mood of the people.
So 2012 will see a lot of this bright colour everywhere. One should try this in a bold dress, top or bikini in this shade. Or one could start small by sporting a tangerine tango accessory or bag.
There are some other colours as well that are hot in 2012. One of them is mint which is to be the most favoured pastel shade. This has a light airy feel about it appeals to everyone during the hot summer months and moist monsoon months.
Yellow the reason we are here
Another shade that will be popular is citron yellow. It is a bright yellow and stops on the point of becoming florescent, which makes it perfect to deal with the gloom of economic crisis. It is a bold colour and demands real guts to carry it off.
Green Green Fairy Queen
Kelly Green is another hue for this year. It is bright and has a leafy nature like feel to it. One can experiment with shorts, dresses, shirts, trousers, shoes, bags and everything else. This colour is good to go all year round on both men and women. This bright colour will liven up any occasion in any season.
Coral Pink is another colour which is in and popular in 2012. This soft pink with a hint of orange is bright enough to liven up the place and discrete enough to not be perceived too loud.
