Tangerine orange is the hottest color of 2012, and what better way to wake up your wardrobe than with a shot of this bold citrus hue? Unfortunately, pairing accessories with such a bright shade can prove difficult, particularly when it comes to jewelry. You want pieces that will complement the color without competing for attention; and yet at the same time, you don’t want your jewelry to fade into the background. Here are a few tips for achieving the proper balance.
If you prefer to stick to a single color in your outfits, look for statement jewelry in a warm gold tone, which will complement the warm undertones in orange without contrasting too sharply. The dainty and ladylike ‘Wrap and Loop’ gold necklace from Zariin offers plenty of shine but will help you achieve a monochromatic look. This is also one of those jewelry pieces that can easily accompany many different items in your wardrobe, so you’ll be able to wear it again and again throughout the year!
If you want to dip a toe into colored jewelry but don’t want anything that will distract too severely from an orange outfit, consider jewelry with citrine. Consider Zariin’s ‘Call of the Vine’ gold-plated and citrine earrings, which will add the right touch of warmth to any citrus outfit.
If you’re ready to add bold pops of color against your orange outfit items, then you have a few different options. Turquoise and blue stones always pair nicely with orange. This year, though, the trend looks to bold shades of pink and purple, paired with orange to recall a brilliant sunset. Lavender and lilac shades will look pleasantly fresh against tangerine, while hot pink will pair well with bolder shades of orange. Try an eye-popping statement necklace like Zariin’s ‘Cosmopolitan Agate’ necklace, with pink agate, rose quartz, and ruby, to ensure all eyes stay where they belong: on you.
Curious about Zariin? The New York-based jewelry company took the fashion world by storm in 2010, when sisters Mamta and Vidhi Gupta introduced their unique brand of feminine and funky jewelry, incorporating raw, semi-precious stones and bold colors into their designs. Two years later, the brand sells out of over 150 boutiques worldwide, and has become one of the premier labels in the Indian fashion scene.
