If there is one common denominator we found on the recent Spring 2018 runways, it was color and personality. Bold hues that not only pop, but command the attention that is well deserved. Pantone released an array of shades last year that ranged from a lively yellow hue dubbed “Meadowlark” to a flamboyant fuchsia shade titled “Spring Crocus”.
Designers interpreted the color scale and created some gorgeous collections that were gracing the runways, just a few weeks ago. Graceful dresses and power suits were given a chic city vibe, as they were tinted in bold hues around cherry tomato, turquoise-lime, and violet. Most shows were designed to show the gradient of colors in uniform to transcend down the runways, so audiences could get a glimpse of just how juicy Spring 2018 is going to be.
For my fashion guru’s that aren’t fond of the vivid color schemes, Pantone also released a classic palette to help balance out the expressive colors that you’ll be seeing on the streets soon. Designers included the classic palette in their collections also, pairing full bright skirts with black turtle necks, or nude detail to break up the high contrasts.
The most notable designer in FYBS’s book? Christian Siriano. Mr. Siriano showcased his brilliant collection for Spring 2018 NYFW presentation with the enriched forecast in mind, in addition to expressing diversity through plus sized models. As he has in the past, Christian Siriano confidently sent one message to NYFW; inclusivity.
Expect a bold and daring season this Spring. The beauty in this latest palette is you can start investing in your colorful statement pieces now, and pair them with your winter neutrals to create an ultra-cool girl wardrobe.
