Go bold in tangerine brights.

Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012 RTW

Whether it’s eye-popping lips or neon nails, dip-dyed hair or bold accessories, bright colors are everywhere this summer.

And with their tan-enhancing effect, you should definitely try to incorporate more standout hues into your summer wardrobe.

A cool and classy option that can work with any outfit is tangerine.

The orange-red color has been spotted on international catwalks everywhere and, being more serious than a bold pink and not quite as bright as yellow, is perfect for both your work and play wardrobe.

Derek Lam presented structured, simple silhouettes, which balanced out the hue perfectly in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Rebecca Minkoff opted for a flirty and flowing summer’s dream in tangerine at New York Fashion Week with low-cut draped dresses parading down the catwalk.

And Doo.Ri opted for soft jersey wrap dresses with long sleeves in the flattering color.

If you want to add a splash of color to your wardrobe, here’s how to work the tangerine trend.

If you are nervous about wearing the bright hue, you can tone down the intensity with a denim jacket or a cream cardigan.

Tan accessories look great with the orange shade, or opt for nude heels and gold jewelry for a more elegant evening look.

For a fresh summer feel, choose a white jacket or sandals to accompany your tangerine treasure.
