The Color Trend That's About to Be Everywhere for Spring

Last year, hot pink was the unexpected color that was absolutely everywhere. While hot pink is still sticking around in 2020, another equally bold color is emerging as the front-runner for fashion insiders: tangerine. Yep, we first spotted the sunny shade on the S/S 20 runways in collections from designers like Jacquemus and Bottega Veneta, but now, it has officially made its way into the wardrobes of celebrities and the fashion set.

Early adopters like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have already been spotted wearing an orange faux-leather dress from Nanushka, while Hailey Bieber was snapped in a pair of bold sneakers from the latest Adidas Originals x Ivy Park drop. It's also a favorite on the street style scene—Moda Operandi's fashion and buying director, Lisa Aiken, has been quick to work the shade into her wardrobe.

While tangerine is getting plenty of play right now, it will continue to be an important color long into 2020 in every fashion category—from dresses to shoes to swimwear. Tangerine is certainly the dominant hue that feels the freshest, but we're also seeing other shades of orange gaining popularity. Ahead, shop my edit of the best orange fashion pieces to add to your wardrobe.

The mix of sunny shades is something I will be repeating immediately.

Long, flowy dresses will be a huge trend for spring.

Clearly, this is a trend that Hailey Bieber is very much behind. I'm making a note to wear multiple shades of orange in the same look.

Add Hailey Bieber's sneakers to your cart before they sell out.

Bottega Veneta has proven to pave the way for the biggest trends season after season, and S/S 20 is no exception.

Jacquemus displayed his S/S 20 collection in a lavender field in the south of France, showcasing a number of stunning tangerine pieces.

I'm very behind this orange-on-orange look.

The half-zip sweater is a 2020 staple.

This may need to be my new airport uniform.


We're also seeing the orange color trend in the world of lingerie in the collections of brands including Lonely and Hanky Panky.


It's no surprise that the tangerine color trend is also present in swimwear—notably one of the defining trends for swimsuits in 2020.

I first learned about Bondi Born at Australian fashion week last year. It's definitely a brand to watch.
