Why not? In fact, July is the perfect time to start giving Christmas 2018 (or 2017 for high-end collections) the 21st-Century facelift it requires. On the color front: Black will give traditional red-and-green combinations the newly tightened-up look it needs. Pink, the perennial favorite of girls, will take on a more vibrant character that shows its holiday evolution. And paper-bag browns will lend a youthful look with a craft sensibility.
But sizzling, along with our Christmas-in-July Sale prices, are some 21st-Century trends that break the mold when it comes to traditional “White Christmases.” While snow and ice are delightful to dream about amidst a July heat wave, we’re forecasting some warmer climes for adding groundbreaking looks to your product styling. In fact, we recommend you take your creative point of view all the way to Africa for a Holiday safari like no other! Tigers, elephants and rhinos are just a few of the Serengeti creatures that will be stirring for Christmas 2017. And, when it comes to prints, animal stripes and spots will mean just as much as images of the animals themselves.
Then, we’re off to the great American West, where our Sheriff Santa trend will conjure up a whole new look for Holiday decor! Christmas stars morph into sheriff badges and evergreen trees will give forth a whole new shimmer when decorated with cactus ornaments, cowboy boots and bandana prints.
Of course, our ‘Tis the Season forecast always offers new twists to more traditional Yuletide looks. But we just wanted you to know that—when it comes to Christmas 2017 and 2018—the heat will be on to take bold designing and color-choice steps into this brave new century!
