Key spring ready-to-wear shows in four cities—in New York City, London, Milan, and Paris—took place in September, resulting in a fresh crop of clothing trends. Jewelers need to take note in order to stock cases with the right pieces to complement the necklines and silhouettes of the season. The color blue was among the spring 2014 clothing trends outlined in “Fashion Trend Report: 10 Spring 2014 Clothing Trends Jewelers Must Know;” here are five ways to adorn some of those cerulean fashions.
The Color Blue
Blues—as in Pantone’s Dazzling Blue and Placid Blue—made an indelible mark in spring collections. It was evident in Catherine Malandrino’s nautical-inspired looks, sweaters at Pringle of Scotland, and Mark Fast’s body-hugging, party girl–inspired and bruise-colored black-and-blue ensembles. Be prepared to color-block blue numbers appropriately.
