Orange, tangerine, tangelo--all these citrus fruit colors, as well as the darker burnt orange--are being served up for spring 2012 by fashion designers, such as Michael Kors who featured orange as a strong color choice for spring in the Michael Kors spring 2012 runway fashion show. Other designers who favor orange hues for spring and summer 2012 include Max Azria in his BCBG line, Jill Stuart, Charlotte Ronson, Doo-Ri, Christian Siriano, and the iconic Paris house of Hermes.

I tend to think of orange as more of a fall color, and it's not one of my favorites because I look awful in orange as do many other women. If it's a flattering color, wear it and enjoy. If orange doesn't suit you, either skip it, or don't wear it close to your face. I sometimes wear a floral orange skirt for spring, but I pair it with a white top. Another option would be to carry an orange handbag. A pop of bright color is on trend this spring, and it can add some fashion interest to an ensemble of neutral colors.
