Fashion Forecast 2015

The fashion world impacts the tastes and expectations of work apparel. Know these trends that have crossed into the ad specialty arena so you can execute more successful company apparel programs. 

Blues Will Be Big: The color experts at Pantone have revealed that several shades of blue will be hot hues in 2015. They include aquamarine, scuba and classic blue. Also be on the lookout for soft lemon yellows, sharp mint greens and reddish-brick browns. 

Retro Jackets Rule: Nostalgia is in the airwhen it comes to outer- wear. Retailers are featuring 1950s-inspired biker/ greaser jackets for men and women, as well as retro baseball jackets that include snap fasteners and ribbed cuffs – the kind worn by ball coaches in the 1980s. Denim outerwear pieces are enjoying a renaissance, too. 

Gingham and Check Patterns Will Pervade: These patterns were prominent across runways during Fashion Week in the fall, suggesting the styles will emerge strongly in stores in 2015.
