Tangerine Tangoes With Honeysuckle

The idea of pairing last year’s Pantone color of the year with this year’s, is compelling…however, I know I’m not this bold with my wardrobe in real life.  Thankfully, everywhere I look,  I’m seeing accessories that sport this daring color combo.  For the “brights-trend” timid (like me) it seems this is the ideal way to tango with color blocking.  Have you gone the bold hue route with your wardrobe choices yet?

  1. Oh this color combo is so bright and cheery! 🙂 Wishing it was just a little warmer now! I think those are the J.Crew pants which are the best fitting pants!

  2. Do I see a little BlogShop work here?! Even though I don't wear pink, I think I could perhaps deal with it in accessories – orange, now that's another matter entirely!

  6. This might be a good way for me to ease in to Tangerine Tango. You know I'm much more of a Honeysuckle girl…but I hate to be left behind on the trends!!!

    Why does that outfit look so stellar on her and I know I would look like a clown! I'm a bit punchy today — renovation headaches! 🙂

  7. Funny, when it comes to decorating my house I've never met a bold color I didn't love…I have both bright orange and pink in my LR. Like you when it comes to my wardrobe I am a bit "timid"…oh the irony.

  9. That pink and orange scarf would be perfect with a black turtleneck since that's about as far out with color as I go too.

    I'm ready to tangle with Tangerine, and I think it looks fabulous paired with a punch on Honeysuckle. I'm afraid I've fallen into the black and gray blahs of winter and could use a little color in my life!

  13. Wow! What a great way to brighten up an already cheery color. Love the way they complement each other so well.

  16. Love this color combo, and I used to be a little brights timid as well… however, wearing it really does make me happy! At the same time… this red head rarely does any shade of orange…

    PS: kind of obsessed with your tagline. 🙂

  18. Love it all. I'm "known" for my super brights. That's why I love JCrew. They always get the perfect hue without going garish or cheesy. And the tangerine and hot pink! One of my favorite combos!

  19. That is such a fun, bright combo! Agreed, I cannot pull that off in clothing form, but as an accessory look, I love it!
