A refreshing look at color trends for next spring from Fashion Snoops, a global resource for style-related insights into the fashion industry. Today I’m sharing the top 10 colors they’re forecasting in womenswear for the Spring/Summer 2017 season. Fashion Snoops’ SS17 Color Forecast identifies five key palettes: Rise, Blossom, Subtropics, Shore and Dusk. Emphasis is placed on two mid-tones palettes: SHORE colors reflect that of the Northern California coastline with soft land and sea tones; while SUBTROPICS offers a lively color suited for high Summer collections. The BLOSSOM palette includes pastels coloring the romantic looks of the season. RISE features both proven and emerging bright colors, while DUSK offers dark and mysterious jewel tones. The full report is available in the Fashion Snoop Trend Shop.
