Tangerine Tango & Turquoise

Tangerine Tango is Color of the year 2012 - by PANTONE , a company best known for its PMS(hehe, no its not what you think!) Pantone Matching system which is a proprietary color space used in a variety of industries.

Annually they declare the COLOR of the YEAR.

Do you know how they choose this color of the year?

 Twice a year the company hosts, in a European capital, a secret meeting of representatives from various nations' color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year; for example, the color for summer 2013 was chosen in London in the spring of 2012.The color purportedly connects with the zeitgeist; for example the press release declaring Honeysuckle the color of 2011 said "In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues." The results of the meeting are published in Pantone View ($750), which fashion designers, florists, and many other consumer-oriented companies purchase to help guide their designs and planning for future products.

And now, who better than Pantone describe Tangerine Tango-color of the year 2012 for us:

Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward.
“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®. “Reminiscent 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.”

So aren't you excited to add atleast one piece of Tangerine Tango this year? 
I have already done that and guess what, I've combined it with Pantone's Color of the Year 2010- TURQUOISE .
Let me tell you, Turquoise is my weakness,as you can see here, Turquoise is all over the place. 
I couldn't be happier with all the beautiful colors around me!
This time i wouldn't speak much about the look, see for yourself :)

Nautical fashion 2012 : Casual Chic

“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.”

Nautical fashion is all over the runway this Spring/Summer.And why should it not be?
It has an interesting history of 150 years.I know you're curious, so read it all here.
This trend can be worn anyway- casual,formal or party-wear.
Its simple yet classy ,thanks to Coco Chanel who included the classic Breton stripes a.k.a Nautical stripes in female fashion for the first time in 1921 when women were trapped in corsets(imagines & laughs!). All the innovations in fashion by Coco Chanel , are those which women gladly accept today as if it was their second nature.Coco celebrates her Birthday in August, so i will try to highlight as many styles from her in some of my posts till August.A promise that is tough, but doable,what say?

Lets see how we can rock the casual nautical look.
  • The typical nautical look uses colors like RED,NAVY and White.
  • Prints include stripes which can be horizontal,vertical or slanting.
  • Other prints would signify all things that a sailor-man can be identified with like Anchors,stars,Compass,etc.
  • This look is so versatile it can be worn throughout the year in various fabrics according to the weather.
  • When accessorizing, think GOLD, as Gold combined with Reds and blues oozes Royal elegance.Think Prince William :)
  • Want to add some glamour?
    Red lipstick that suits your complexion will be your best bet.Make heads turn .Since the whole look is simplified, a red lip-color will only do justice to it even when you are out in the sunlight.The Nautical fashion files

Shoes-Bandra, Evil Eye Bracelet-gift from istanbul,Belt-Madame,Shirt,Bermuda-Janpath,Delhi,Can Pendant- Ebay HK,Retro Glares- Opp Palika Bazaar,Delhi.

I absolutely loved doing this shoot, thanks to the blazing sun and people looking as if there was some real shoot going on.Hehe.It was annoying, but i kept my cool most of the time,thinking of you guys :)
So, Does Nautical turn heads with its simplicity?
If ,yes, I would happily do a few more nautical looks.
OPEN for comments :)
