It is fascinating to know that we are right now in a time where major fashion eras of last couple of decades exist together along with the evolving future of fresh fashion trend. From a fashion and color trend point of view 2017 was the year that came to an end with a comeback of the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and the 90s fashion! – All follow the same time-machine + present mix-tape’ theme.

PANTONE® COLOR OF THE YEAR 2018  is  PANTONE 18-3838 ULTRA VIOLET :

Ultra violet takes two shades that are seemingly diametrically opposed — blue and red — and brings them together to create something new. It implies the mysteries of the cosmos, the support discoveries to go beyond where we are now. It is symbolic of infinite possibilities as the skies above us. Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

As per  Vogue –

Lavender: this color will dominate the whole summer season.
Purple: Pantone’s 2018 color of the year is Ultra Violet.
Rapture rose: a full, princess-like, intense pink shade.
Sky blue: a fresh color that evoke a serene sky. It’s great on mid or full-length dresses:
Light green: green is back also for summer 2018, this time with a delicate and fresh nuance.
Military green: considered now as a neutral hue, just like beige, it often ‘breaks’ elegant or sporty looks on military style pieces.
Milk white: a full, warm hue. Nothing to do with optical white, cooler and cyber-like.
Chocolate brown : brown is back on the runway.
Yellow: the same shade of the tracksuit sported by Uma Thurman in Tarantino’s Kill Bill. A vibrant, energizing tone of yellow. And yellow’s comeback for 2018 is strictly connected to purple, its complementary color.
Tomato red: a totally bold, entrancing hue.

NEUTRALS Color inspirations from Kim Kardashian-West :

Love her or hate her however, the one person  we can keep a close eye on everything trendy is Kim Kardashian West. The lady sure knows how to rock extremes when it comes to colors trends as well as fashion trends. And we can take notes from her!

“Trends will take two opposed directions: on one side towards a strong, vibrant palette, that recalls fauvist pictures, on the other towards pastel hues on light and destructured garments, for an ethereal look.” –SELENE OLIVA (Vogue)

Mix future with past, pastels with dark, and we’re here for it!
