Spring is all about color, which means officially ditching your boring black uniform for something vibrant and fun. Given we spend a lot of time trolling our local hardware store for creative ways to make our apartment stand out (statement walls, people — invest!), we hit upon the idea of scooping up some paint samples from our friends at Benjamin Moore and using their broad color wheel to lay out the foundation for a fabulous wardrobe.

Tangerine is ruling the scene this spring, so it was definitely top on our list. BM’s 14 Carrots worked in a pinch, and we went to work shopping our favorite looks online. From pants and skirts to tops and tees, we obsessed over just the right hue to pair with our colored denims, neon accessories and our favorite spring sandals. In no time at all we found six separates that rocked our world and then some. Citrusy and oh-so-chic, we immediately knew this was a color we could fall in love with well beyond the first hint of warm weather.
