Spring Trend Forecast

It can be confusing to see crazy trends come down the runway and trying to translate them into something you can actually wear. Because, as awesome as a Chanel hoola hoop purse may be, people would probably judge if you rocked it at a cocktail party. 

A great go-to resource for any kind of trend forecasting is Pantone. They’re the color masters of the art and fashion world. The colors they pick for the year rule the runways. As you may know, Pantone’s color of the year is Emerald, but red, navy, and pastel-y greens, blues, beiges, pinks, and purples are also major. Designers definitely use these colors for inspiration, but they aren’t the only trends for spring. Other trends include stripes, geometrical silhouettes, pops of neon with neutrals, florals, and circle skirts. You can see where I’ve collected looks from fashion shows and translated them into “real way” style you can rock. 

Spring is a time to experiment with these fresh trends, but you don't have to be a slave to fashion. Everyone has their unique style, so find a way to incorporate it into yours! Maybe you wouldn't don a hot pink candy cane striped onesie a la Marc Jacobs, but you could easily translate that into a striped sweater over jeans. Don't get too literal with these fashion trends; they're called trends for a reason!
