Although my favourite go-to palette (for both fashion & interior) is most decidedly neutral – grey, sand, flax, ah be still my heart– I do appreciate the power & liveliness of colour and make a conscious effort to incorporate it both in my wardrobe and at work. Described as a "vivacious and appealing refresher" by Pantone, Tangerine Tango was named as this year's colour of the year. Before you dismiss this bold hue as unwearable, check out how these fashionable ladies have incorporated varying degrees of the shade into their looks. While I absolutely adore the strong colour statement made by Giovanna Battaglia, Editor of L'Uomo Vogue, Michael Kors' take is a sophisticated option that's subtle enough for even the most colour shy.
