Happy Hour: Pantone Meet Negroni

Feb 10, 2012

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the Pantone Color of the Year is Tangerine.  The shade is bold and bright and perfect for curing those end-of-the-week blahs.  And even if it’s not yet spring, there’s no reason that you can’t wear this peppy shade now.

3.1 Phillip Lim Silk-Stretch Sweaterdress (Net-a-Porter, $195)

This bright dress is a fun addition to any wardrobe.  A word of caution, however, it is super short.  So tights, leggings or skinny jeans are strongly encouraged.

The Esquire Negroni

Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a twist of orange peel.

Another drink that you can make with Campari that is both simple and refreshing is the Campari Soda.  Pour 3 ounces Campari into an ice-filled Collins glass and top off with soda; garnish with slice of lemon or orange. In Italy, you can buy these premixed in little bottles.

    I love this orange trend, but the color looks TERRIBLE on me. Any ideas for how to work it into a wardrobe?

    I will never understand people who like negroni (much less negroni sbagliati – ugh!), but the orange dress I can get behind!

  3. VA says:

    Meredith, what about tangerine heels, belt, clutch – accessories that you wear away from your face? Not all at once, of course 🙂 Orange isn't my best color either, but I think a navy dress with a skinny patent tangerine belt, or jeans and a button-down with a tangerine tote, could be just the ticket.

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
