There’s more to fall than pumpkin spice (and pumpkin spice lattes for that matter). Sure, it’s a flattering shade, but there are other equally gorgeous shades of the season. And many of them are still in the orange family. Take tangerine. Pinterest searches for the lighter, brighter shade of orange have grown 86 percent from last year. The uptick is totally understandable since the color is flattering on all skin tones and recalls the vivid hues of summer. Tangerine also mixes well with the more somber tones of the season, including beige and brown. And yes, tangerine and pumpkin spice can be worn together for a dynamic monochromatic look.
