Bridesmaid Dresses: On Trend in Tangerine

Do you know what the color of 2012 is? Pantone does. It’s called Tangerine Tango and this world renowned color institute has crowned it the year’s queen of color! Dozens of celebrities have been spotted wearing this bold and seductive shade and it has been all over the runway this season. Designers like Charlotte Ronson, Tommy Hilfiger, Peter Som and Derek Lam have worked Tangerine Tango into their lines.

Consider incorporating this vibrant and beautiful shade into your wedding color scheme. At first, when you see the color you may absolutely love it and completely commit to it, or you may shy away from it and desire something a little more subdued. It ultimately depends on you (and your bridesmaids’) personality.

Designer Leila Rose’s bridesmaid dress collection boasts a tangerine tone that will look great at your summer wedding on bronze bodies. Some of the dresses are even paired with a black belt embellishment (that will make waists look so tiny). Dress style numbers LX171, LR172 and LR173 own this color and are classically shaped to complement your bridal party’s figures. You should be able to find these wedding gowns at a good, high-end bridal salon.

Other lines also carry the color Tangelo, which is slightly lighter and brighter than Tangerine Tango. Again, perfect for Spring and Summer; this tone is sure to stand out in wedding party pictures.

If you love the idea of a bold, bright and modern color but solid orange tones have never been your favorite, why not try a color like Persimmon and Maize? They have hints of orange in the red and gold colors of the dress. This year it will be easy and on trend to find a tangerine inspired color that will work for your wedding party.
