Each season, a rotation of colors takes the throne of the trend. For Spring 2023, New York Fashion Week designers are infusing looks with a juicy tangerine hue.
Like an orange daffodil, a fresh highlighter or the infamous colorful Hermès box, the bright hue will ring in the season – on asymmetrical dresses, structured corset dresses, cut-out jumpsuits, batwing bralettes and even trench coats. Beyond its standalone moments on the runway, tangerine orange is also mixed with patterns, as we see in Marni’s Spring 2023 collection, which combines warm magenta pink and soft cream in a bright hue.
So far we’ve seen Tangerine in Monse, Lionne, Tanya Taylor, Naeem Khan, Simon Miller, Raisa Vanessa, Dion Lee, Private Policy and Bryan Barrientos for Supima. And it’s all in line with what the Pantone Color Institute – the authority on all hues and their trends – predicted in its Color Trends Report. (He named “Tangelo” a shade to watch for Spring 2023.)

While it may deviate intensely from the capsule wardrobe we’ve built, we’re excited to add a must-have pop of color to our apparel. For New Yorkers who may have committed too heavily to a uniform of black, denim and neutrals, bold color trends like tangerine provide a fashion refresh. This is the unshakeable trend of the “dopaminergic bandage”.
