Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â “If winter comes,Â can springÂ be far behind?” -P. B. Shelley
This is the only phrase under whose solace i survived my winter .Iâ€™m not really a big fan of winter though I hail from a place Ukhrul which lies 5,453 feet above sea level in north east India and itâ€™s forever cold there. Most of the days the roads are covered with fogs just above the feet level and it feels like a walk in the cloud. But I feel dull and unlively in cold climate.
So this winter after hiding in my cocoon like a larvae for 4 months, I canâ€™t wait for spring to come and splash color on nature and on everything around me.iâ€™l snuggle out of my comfort zone spread my wings like a butterfly and ……oh wait!!! I canâ€™t fly just yet I have to tell you all the good news 🙂 -and that is Pantone has already released the colour Â trend for spring 2012. And yes fashionistas…hold your breathe… drum roll please… its TANGERINE TANGO. I am so excited because Iâ€™ve been crazy about tangerine this new year. Little did I know it would be the most happening colour.
For those of you who are new to Pantone . Here s a little about them

And this is what they have to say about tangerine-
â€œSophisticated Â but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,â€ said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour InstituteÂ®. â€œReminiscent 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.â€
Tangerine tango is a reddish orange , exotic, sultry , attention seeker but just in the right amount and not OTT. And I Â know many of you will be delighted to hear that Pantone and Sephora are collaborating to launch collection in spring 2012 .Â (please note that here I am doing the happy chicken dance because Sephora is coming to India soon :p)
How to wear tangerine-As an attire â€“ pair it with nudes like beige to warmify the colour.
OrÂ go total contrast with black .
If youâ€™re bold enough you can experiment by pairing it with equally bright hues like parrot green.
- Make up-Â MAC launched its lipstick â€œso chaudâ€ and â€œmorangeâ€, neon orange
- Lotus launched Lotus herbal floral glam lipstick â€˜Oâ€™ orange
- Revlon â€“ misty rust, moon drops.
- NYX diamond sparkle lipstick- sparkling orange
- YSL â€“rouge volupte lipstick orange shiver
- Inglot lipstick 105
- Colorbar creamy matte lipstick 032 tangerina

AS ACCESSORIES- orange satchels, clutches, chunky bracelets , shoes , belts and statement necklaces..
However if youâ€™re wearing orange lippies , go easy on the other make ups . keep the eyes simple- a simple kohl lined would do. Orange is a tricky color to wear . you want just the right shade (which may vary from person to person) â€“ so it may take some time discovering the right shade for you. Better get started now so you can flaunt when spring finally arrives.
We all wanna be ready for it ,donâ€™t we?
