2020 Spring Trend Colors

The On-Trend Colors for Spring 2020

Utilizing the popular colors of the season is a great way to make any design feel of-the-moment. The following color swatches come straight from the Pantone Trend Report from this season’s New York Fashion Week. Play with combinations of analogous colors like the blues and greens together, or create a bold look by pairing complimentary colors like greens with reds, or orange with blue.

Spring 2020 Trend #1: Utility Pockets

I can’t decide which one I like better the “strong sleeves” or the “little white dress”. Luckily, these two trends can be combined easily. I can see some pattern hacking in my future. I also love that one of the spring colors is “faded denim” blue. I’ve got a good amount of light blue chambray in my fabric stash, enough for at least two dresses for my 18" dolls.

I love the little white dress. At this time of year I love to see new crisp white clothing – tired of winter dark.

I have always put pockets in every jumper, dress or jacket I’ve ever made. When I was teaching they were essential so it is great to see fashion designers making them trendy again this year.
