Each season, a rotation of colors takes the throne of the trend. For Spring 2023, New York Fashion Week designers infuse looks with a juicy tangerine hue.
Like an orange daffodil, fresh highlighter or the iconic colour Hermès box, the bright hue will ring in the season — on asymmetric dresses, structured corseted dresses, cut-out jumpsuits, batwing bralettes and even trench coats. In addition to its stand-alone moments on the runway, mandarin orange is also mixed into patterns, as seen in Marnie‘s spring 2023 collection, which pairs hot magenta pink and soft cream sicle with the light shade.
So far we have seen Mandarin at MonseLyonne, 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 shades and their trends – predicted in its color trend report. (It called “Tangelo” a shade to watch for spring 2023.)

While it may diverge intensely from the capsule wardrobe we’ve built, we’re excited to add a must-have color to our clothing. For New Yorkers who may have committed too intensely to a uniform of black, denim and neutrals, bright color trends like tangerine offer a fashion refresh. It is the steady tendency to “dopamine dressing.”
