Spring Fashion Trends to Sell Right Now


When you talk apparel with your clients, you can show you’re totally in the know by pitching the five hottest 2018 spring trends.


Americana never goes out of style 

We’re all searching for our own American dream. That’s why stars and stripes, and good old red, white and blue never go out of style – and designers keep reimagining these timeless classics.

This trend is playing out in streetwear’s red, white and blue color pops, bold diagonal stars-and stripes patterns, and understated U.S. flag-inspired color-blocking.


Say Yes to Color

The runway and retail guide hot color trends, and this spring is no different. We’re excited for spring’s color palette of bright, saturated hues that people are wearing in monochromatic tones or dramatic color-blocking.


Shades of Purple

In a nod to visionary musical icons like Prince, the Pantone 2018 Color of the Year is Ultra Violet: Complex, cosmic and contemplative, this mystical purple symbolizes discovery and limitless possibilities.


The White Tank

Take advantage of one of the season’s hottest trends: the white tank. This simple style is set to be a spring and summer favorite.

We design wardrobe staples, like the tank, in modern fabrics and fits, balancing simplicity and style.”





Athleisure Reimagined

Athleisure isn’t going anywhere quite yet, and it’s getting another makeover in 2018. Our selection of head-to-toe athleisure is designed with busy lifestyles in mind. Think of it now as elevated sportswear, with athletic references and details, and unusual styling and construction.

Athleisure also is nodding to ’90s urban wear, incorporating anoraks and windbreaker silhouettes from super-casual to dressier versions.
