It is time to start planning for your spring wardrobe! Don't freak out if you are not willing to don a demi-bra, flutter-skirt dress just focus on the above colors for now. In the next few weeks we will look into garment style trends, but let's begin with color.
In the past few years we have seen much more demure and traditional color palettes, probably inspired by the mood felt across the country, but the color palettes (hopefully, as for the country) are seeing a swing back to a vibrant lively state.
Fashion people know the first stop to color forecasting is Pantone. And now you do too. Check out the link below for the 2012 Spring Fashion Color Report.
The best part for all you frugal fashionistas is the fall 2012 palette is a slight variation from spring 2012. This is something to keep in mind on those shopping trips when you feel torn about a purchase. If you find a great piece that may be a bit more than you planned to spend consider whether it is something you can carry through fall, like those of us in warmer climates typically can or possibly by layering it in with warmer garments.
