Spring will forever evoke the image of sun, soft botanical flowers and flirty colors all blended in a water color painting.  Spring 2018 has been able to take the silken traditional melancholy story and modernized it with texture, floral and innovation.

 According to Pantone, ‘Color continues to be a powerhouse and a key influencer of fashion trends for Spring 2018’.  These colors are not only found in the fabric of fashion, these colors are easily found in the accessories that are now changing the landscape that is fashion.

Think of the Power Pastel trend and how the accessories are easily incorporated.  From your resin textured necklace to your pastel torti hoop, the soft feminine pastel can be transformed into a strong bold statement.  Key pastel colors focused on have been soft roses, pink lavenders and boy blues.  Combining these soft airy pastels with florals, plaids or color blocked statements will allow you to find the vintage feminine statement aligned with the modern independent women.

Although color is driving the ethereal soft floral statements, there is the strong statement with color, pattern and style.  Think the early ‘90’s with a strong shoulder, belted waist and bum bag.  Combining these strong statements with color will embrace the bold statement of the strong feminine silhouette.  Color combinations of fuchsia, tomato reds, and green/blue combinations drive these statements. 

Color is not your only way to embrace the trends of the season.  Texture and structure take you along the path of fashion.

When we think of shine we think of sequin, crystal or stone.  This spring think about the dew kissed morning bloom with the resin and lucite sleek or matte finishes.  These modern accessories blend easily with the many different styles your customer will be looking to you for delivery.  The modern technology has given the accessory industry the ability to take bold statement pieces and incorporate soft feminine hues or take the bold spring colors and incorporate them in the most delicate of pieces.  From solid colors with matte or shiny finishes all the way to multi colored pieces, this is a trend you will see from season to season.

Vintage Florals continue to find their way in the fabric of the season.  Accessory designers have embraced this concept and we continue to see statement floral earrings, necklaces and bracelets in a variety of colors and shapes.  Combined with gold and floral, the versatility of this collection will translate to many.  Cuff gold bracelet, statement floral earring with a combination of chain and floral neck is one of the strongest trends for Spring 2018.
