One of my favorite aspects of fashion how color trends evolve. Now that fashion week has arrived in New York City, I am starting to fantasize about clothes. During fashion week, the designers present their collections a full six months in advance giving stores a chance to buy what they want. The fall clothes that were presented last spring showed a lot of yellow.
Not Canary Yellow
Now before you get scared off , this is not a Big Bird or tweety bird sort of yellow. This warm yellow is very soft as the name suggests... "misted yellow"
How to wear yellow this season
For those who may be reluctant to wear too much yellow near your face, this yellow is very well suited for accessories as the color goes so well with all the colors in the autumn palette. Whether for a bag or a printed yellow scarf, a touch of yellow does go a long way. Yellow used in a print will be the very popular this fall.
Yellow Prints are hot this fall, |
this glamorous peacock scarf is
a good investment that you can wear all year.
What the experts at Pantone had to say
Pantone is the leading predictor of trends (although a lecture I went to said this is not a "predictor" so much as a "reflection" of what they are already seeing in the marketplace.) From their website they say: Adding a ray of sunlight and warmth, optimistic Misted Yellow alludes to the promise of spring to come.
Yellow is a good investmentLooking ahead to the spring 2015 color trend report (yes, the report is already out!) There is a yellow in that palette too which they renamed as "custard" but it is basically the same color as misted yellow. So any accessories or transitional pieces you buy now in yellow will also work in the spring.
