I'm sure everyone has heard the news about Pantone's declaration of Tangerine Tango as 2012's color of the year. I for one am very happy since I adore orange. But orange can be a bit scary to wear (it's a color that seems to be easier to work with in decor than in apparel, no?), I mean you don't want to look like a traffic cone or like you are celebrating Halloween.
One of my favorite colors to pair with orange right now is navy. There are multiple examples of this pairing in the Spring 2012 collections (I first called this color combo as a trend back in September and still think it's the way to go). A great way to incorporate the orange/navy combo is to pair an orange top with navy pants or dark denim. In fact dark denim is a great way to ease into it. Here are some looks I put together to show how wearable this pairing can be:
What do you think? Is this a color combo you can get into?
