It’s time to give traditional Christmas décor a 21st-century facelift with our latest ‘Tis The Season color-and-trend forecast!
For instance, just add black and you’ll never settle for just red and green again. Whether teamed with white, color or metallic, black is quickly becoming an absolute classic for the holidays! Pink has become a perennial bestseller for the Season, but deeper shades will find their way into fresh trends like Christmas in Bloom and Holiday Graphics. Meanwhile, browns are returning for the festivities, ranging from paper-bag types in Simple Gifts to much richer values in Haute Holiday.
While traditional Holiday looks always require new twists, you can also count on our ‘Tis The Season forecasts to break completely new ground. Our 2017-18 edition is no exception. You'll find adventurous trends like Wild Celebration with its safari looks and Merry Gothmas with its dark-and-lovely palette. Then there's Sheriff Santa for an untamed Western Christmas customers will never forget!
With 30 essential Holiday colors, including 5 metallics, plus 11 festive trends, ‘Tis The Season 2017-18 is sure to fire-up your imagination as you develop your Christmas collections!
