Orange is a hot trend nearly every autumn season, but in 2012, it will be the "it" color of every season, Us Weekly reports.
Pantone Color Institute recently reported that the Color of the Year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango, which executive director Leatrice Eiseman calls "sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive," the news source reports.
"Reminiscent of the radiant shadings of a sunset, Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow, to form a high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy."
Some of the most popular celebrities are already rocking this bright hue. Beyoncé memorably showed off her baby bump at the MTV Video Music Awards in a floor-length tangerine gown, while Nikki Reed sported a bright orange boucle shift in October.
Orange can be a tough color to pull off, but with the right makeup, it can flatter nearly anyone. If you choose to make a tangerine fashion statement, opt for a natural makeup palette. You can also match your lipstick to your outfit by sporting coral red lips and blush with warm orange undertones.
