Bill Blass for Pantone
Even though it's January, and spring seems really far away, it's not too early to start planning for spring fashion. Knowing what the trends will be ahead of time will help you make smart purchases now and save some money by picking up key items before the trend hits.
One key factor in predicting fashion trends is color. Each season there are a few key colors that come into fashion, and Pantone, Inc. is the authority on predicting which colors will be next.
According to Pantone's Spring 2008 Fashion Color Report, spring '08 fashion will be characterized by "stabilizing neutrals combined with pops of brighter colors to create unique, distinctive looks."
