Fashion Color Trends

Fall/Winter Color Trends 2010/2011 will reflect a “big picture theme,” according to expert, Leatrice Eiseman of Pantone Color Institute and Eiseman Center for Color Information and Training. Eiseman describes this year’s season trend as a “Mosaic of Color and Style,” one that involves taking a look at the past, present, and future. In her article for WSA Today, The Must-Have Color Trends For Fall 2010, Eiseman goes into depth explaining 3 sets of triplicate color selections for this approaching season. Here’s the look!

Lenzing has also released their color trends.  It offers several key pallets that reference eco, metallic, and exotic inspiration, along with two another themes that pick up earthiness in an urban environment and rich colors that were inspired by technology. Here is a portion of their Fall color trend for women’s wear. See the rest here.

Confessions of a Thrifter:

Why is this important?

I use to want to look like a authentic pin-up girl from the 50’s. Not so anymore. I don’t want to look like I’ve walked out of any particular era. How do I find balance?

When shopping on a budget, it is important to stay relevant, in terms of today’s fashion. Simply picking most anything from the thrift store will not reference a look that is current. What are some guidelines for thrifting? Knowing trends, such as color importance, will help you, as a thrifter or bargain hunter,  create a statement that will stay in keeping with current trends, while still creating a look that is also unique. You may even find it easier to sift through mounds of clothes that can sometimes seem impossible to sift through when focusing on a color pallet.

By piecing together a look that references modern trends, people we will be drawn to what you’ve styled. That’s always encouraging. Try it for yourself!

Challenge: Create a budget fall/winter look, using up-coming color trends.

Let me know how it goes!
