The colors of spring are often bright and coincide with the resurgence of nature. The general tone of your store is slowly moving away from winter colors, just like the creeping sunlight of future longer days. Store displays and mannequins should be some of the first objects in your shop to signal this shift to customers. Dress them in the style of this year’s changing season to get ahead of the competition and take advantage of the rebirth around you to facilitate a wardrobe reborn for your shoppers.
Before you know it, the sun will be shining through your windows and the natural light will be bathing your spring collections like flowers outside. According to Glamour, some color combinations to watch out for this spring are pink/silver, camel/forest green, peach/gray, and different pairings of blue shades together. These are all earthy and refreshing hues compared to the stark darks of winter, and provide a respite before the blinding color of summer.
Black and white is surviving the passing yearly trends of fashion as it prominently remained in power during the New York Fashion Week for spring 2014, said Elle magazine. Overlapping in agreement with Glamour on the emergence of small peaks of pink this season, the magazine noted that pale pastels and metallics could also take a hold of outfits this year.
If you want to take any combinations you like to the next level, the C3 Custom Color Collection lets you take the mannequins for sale and paint them whatever color you want. This can also be done to store racks, form bases and neck blocks. That way you can use what your clothes are sitting on to your advantage and put your own personal twist on the popular color combinations this spring. Don’t be afraid to branch out from the selected norms and see what you can come up with.
