Red-orange is the top color in our fashion future.

At least according to world-renowned color experts, Pantone. The New Jersey-based  expert named Tango Tangerine as the 2012 Color of the Year.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute

And it looks so great on my complexion, but I digress.

As the top fashion color, we should expect to see the glowing orange not just in jumpsuits and dresses this spring, but also glowing in our home decor. Orange walls. Orange chairs. Orange cameras. Orange cars.

For the whole color story, check out next Wednesday's Style & Soul.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
