Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether
it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: When Pantone announced that 2012's color of choice would be Tangerine Tango our thoughts immediately leapt to how we'd incorporate the bright, citrus tone into our wardrobes throughout the year.
Luckily, the reddish orange shade is easier to toss into an outfit than one color-shy individual might imagine.
With this fuzzy, tangerine skirt from vintage shop Blueberry Deluxe, the throwback shape of the pocketed and zippered mini transforms the maximalist orange into a minimalist statement.
Where: Blueberry Deluxe
Style this Gem after the jump.
Style It: Balance the mini with a Madewell long-sleeve crewneck sweater flecked with gold, punked up leopard print studded Jeffrey Campbell loafers, vintage Henry Dunay peachy natural tangerine moonstone and diamond earrings, and (just for fun) a sheepish keyfob from See by Chloe.
