New York Fashion Week spring 2018 has begun! This means we have a whole new world of color to look forward to when the new, warm weather season is upon us. Pantone has announced the top 12 colors from the spring 2018 color palette, according to designers in New York; and they are fabulous!
In past seasons, Pantone has announced the top 10 colors for spring. This year instead of sticking to 10, we have the top 12 colors for spring 2018. In addition to 12 colors in the spring 2018 color palette, Pantone has announced the top 4 classic colors for spring 2018. This is groundbreaking!
The classic hues we will see this spring 2018 will be navy, pale grey, pale beige, and off-white. Otherwise known as “Sailor Blue,” “Harbor Mist,” “Warm Sand,” and “Coconut Milk.” I guess the fancy names always sounds better. haha
These timeless colors, which happen to be hot for spring, will compliment the seasonal colors from Pantone’s top 12 color palette. The top 12 colors for spring include cheery hues which are vivid yet not bright. We are moving away from muted tones, and neon tones. Spring 2018 will be more of a “true color” type of season with hues that reflect a happy mood.
Since this is the time of year when we are looking at our spring and summer wardrobes, deciding what to keep or give away, this spring 2018 color palette gives us a guide as to what we should hang onto for next year, and what we should sell or donate. If you have any clothing, shoes, or handbags which fit into the spring 2018 color palette, be sure to hang onto them for next year! In fact, since the weather is still warm, be sure to rock these items now! You will be a year ahead of the fashion timeline. Love that!
Some designers have begun showing their spring/summer 2018 collections today in New York. I will arrive in New York on Friday and start to bring you live coverage of the shows! Stay tuned for more trends from New York for the upcoming spring and summer 2018 season!
