Tangerine - Now that the holidays are over, you may have thought you’d seen the last of tangerines (at least the kind you get in a wooden box from the grocery store and, if you’re lucky, in your stocking as well), but this tropical color is back in fine form! Slightly less brilliant than it’s big sis, Lemon Yellow, tangerine is the more understated of the two. Think of it almost as a neutral for the spring, summer, and even fall months. Pair tangerine with other neutrals like navy, gray or cream for sumptuously saturated style.
