Trend-Spotting: Tangerine

The color of summer? Tangerine. This bright, juicy hue is showing up on everything from tunics to bags. Check out some of my favorite takes on the trend after the jump.

Kate Spade Mott Street Fisher
If any bag could get me to make a structured statement, this would be it.
$345 at katespade.com

Temperley London Long Amberley Embellished Crepe Kaftan
Yes, the price is astronomical ... but with crystal topaz jeweling and luxurious silk chiffon by your side, who really cares?
$2700 at net-a-porter.com

Opening Ceremony Camilla Tubular Platform Sandals
Bright tangerine leather is grounded by navy in a silhouette that's totally, well, tubular.
$381.50 at shopbop.com

Jessica Kagan Cushman Whatever Cuff
My absolute favorite saying of all time. Just picture Cher from Clueless saying it and you'll be good to go.
$55.30 at jessicacushman.com

Diane von Furstenberg Elalia Maxi Dress
What could be easier than a dress that looks like a skirt and top? Just throw it on and go.
$445 at neimanmarcus.com

Michael Kors Chronograph Sport Watch
This watch calls to me ... and I'm not even a watch wearer. Gleaming silver details on the case offset the super bright orange rubber band.

  1. Several months ago, I had read that the color of the season would be a coral pink, but I love this shade of orange!! Thanks for the great tips! Really enjoy your blog. Where do you get all the great ideas?

  2. Coral is great too, but I think tangerine is much more summery! :) And thanks for the nice comments. I'm inspired by everything around me -- the ideas just keep coming! Thanks for reading!

  3. I love, LOVE the Temberley. It reminds me of the glamour of the 40s. The tube shoes too. Great color pick!
