The official Pantone Color of the Year is "greenery".
At New York Fashion Week, the designers were explaining how we live in this modern world where technology will always exist, but there’s this need to turn to design to go to the opposite side, to Nature,” Pressman said.
Ultimately, Greenery calls to mind the ‘re-’ words: refresh, revive, restore, renew, replenish, regenerate, rejuvenate, reinvigorate, re-oxygenate. Design is an outlet for all of these fresh beginnings. And the yellow pigment in Greenery references the sun, the symbolic light that people need in these times.
Along with the unveiling of the color of the year, Pantone created a selection of 10 palettes pairing Greenery with neutrals, pastels, brights, deeper tones, metallics, and even the two 2016 colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Perfect for this trend is Hayden from the Blue Willow by Anne Barge Collection, 8847 by Justin Alexander and Vendome by Anne Barge!
Two Looks in One!!
Designers have made getting the two-dress trend easier than ever with convertible dresses that combine a formal ceremony gown and fun reception frock. Now you can get two looks for the price of one. Wearing a more traditional gown down the aisle and then slipping into a slinkier number for your reception is all the rage! Enter, the convertible wedding dress! Detachable skirts make for a seamless outfit change while also doing away with the hassle of bustling your gown.
Illusion necklines, sleeves and cutouts!
Necklines, sleeves, and side cutouts adorned in a layer of tulle is the right answer for the bride who is moving towad this trendy look. See examples below with Joy by Ian Stuart, Prunelle by Pronovias and Devoted by Anne Barge.
Ballgowns, Ballgowns, Ballgowns!!
We couldn't be more excited to see these beauties back on the runway. For many years, ballgowns were synonymous with princesses and tradition. In recent years, designers have moved away from this classic look. Ballgowns are now back in modern yet elegant designs as well as tradional beauty!
