Looks We Love: Tangerine Jeans!

If there's one thing we know for sure, it's that tangerine is THE color of the year!  Not just according to Pantone, or to the gazillions of celebrities seen wearing the hue on the red carpet, but because it has popped up literally everywhere, from street wear, to children's clothing, to home decor.

So this week's lookbook is styled with one of my favorite new items, tangerine jeans!  At first, this color of pant might seem a bit intimidating to work into your wardrobe, but with some light color blocked accents, the hue comes alive in a refreshing, and gorgeous way.

I started off with a beautiful tangerine skinny jean.  They key to working a bright color like this in your pants is to keep it skinny.  The color already draws a lot of attention to itself, so wearing something baggy might just swallow up your body and wind up wearing you rather than the other way around.

Next I paired it with a semi-sheer white button down blouse.  Because it's sheer, I kept it clean and very tailored to balance out.  I added a pink bra to get a small pop of color up top, otherwise go with a nude bra.

I topped off the clothes with a lovely pale yellow blazer.  I just adore the look of a pale, sunny yellow piece to balance out the bold jeans.

Added some adorable, and alarmingly comfortable solid pink bow heels, and a neutral bag that has both a hint of tangerine, and the pink, and accessorized with some pink and bronze jewelry.

And that completes the look!  Perfect for a day out, or if the top isn't sheer, the workplace, a casual company event, or lunch with the girls.

What do you think?
