Fashion for women can be a minefield of dilemmas… what to buy, what colors to choose, what styles, how to keep your clothes safe, etc. There is so much information that it can be quite daunting. But with this simple guide, you will be able to get the most out of your closet going forward and look as stylish as if you just came off a designer runway show!
Know which colors are trendy
The main thing to focus on when dressing in different seasons is to wear the colors of that season so that you will look en vogue. Keep an eye on fashion websites like vogue.com, elle.com and of course 3cstyle.com to see which colors featured the most during fashion weeks. The colors on the catwalk are a key indicator of the shades we can expect to see in trend. Use these colors in your clothing or with your accessories. For example, burgundy was huge in the 2017 fall shows. So for winter, stick to rich, indulgent reds, browns and burgundy hues and you can’t go wrong. An elegant wrap dress in a beautiful deep color will not only look good but give you a fashion edge.
For spring, prepare yourself for a sense of fun and playful release. Look for clothing in cherry tomato, yellow, sailor blue, ultra violet (color of the year), spring crocus, dark brown, palace blue and soft hues like dove grey, nile green, coconut milk, pink lavender and warm sand as Pantone call out these colors in their Spring 2018 palette.
As you can see that doesn’t mean that neutral or classic shades are out of style. Pantone thought about classic colors for 2018 spring season as well. There’s a reason for it. They are essential for any season. For example, they can help pull off the color trends. Here are 3 ways to approach the trendy colors.
Built upon in tonal stories;
Used in a full-on monochrome look;
Mixed in a wild color pairing to create bold and contrasting outfits.
