In case you hadn’t heard, this is Fashion Week here in New York — a time when the biggest designers show off their collections for the following spring, establishing the trends and styles that will eventually trickle down into the department stores. And so, naturally, the Internet starts filing Trend Reports and talking about the hot must-haves for spring.
(Ahem.) Here in the real world, we’re still clinging on to our sundresses as the cold months loom on the horizon, quickly rolling in like storm clouds. We’re just starting to think about fall clothes — psyching ourselves up for boots and scarves and sweaters. How can we possible think of SPRING?
Well, one good thing about Fashion Week is that, if we pay attention, we can jump on trends before they hit the mainstream. And while we can’t wear the shorts and halters that are strutting down the runway, we can certainly incorporate the future “must-have” colors into our wardrobe.
And thanks to the Pantone Color Institute, we now know the hottest colors that everyone will be wearing in 2014. All of which you can start buying now, before everyone else catches on.
