You may already know that it's the Year of the Dragon, and, possibly, the end of the world as we know it. (Countdown to Mayan apocalypse: 314 days).
But did you know that it's the year of Tangerine Tango?
Every year, Pantone, "the world-renowned authority on color," announces a new color of the year. (So you're all caught up, 2010 was the year of Turquoise, and 2011 was all about Honeysuckle.) In 2012, Pantone is loving Tangerine Tango, "a spirited reddish orange [that] continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward."
As you know, we at LearnVest are all about harnessing energy to take control of our lives and get ahead, be it in terms of managing our finances or excelling on the job. And if Tangerine Tango can inspire us to do that, then we're on board. And if it can't ... it's still a really fun, bright, versatile color that we'd love to work into our closets this year.
