The PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report is the most recognized authoritative color reference guide for fashionistas, reporters, and retailers throughout the season. The PANTONE Color of the Year is PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet (which can be found at https://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2018).
One of the latest beading trends is to string a singular pearl, centering it and knotting it on each side of the pearl.
Whether you use leather or silk cord, or simple chain, it’s one of the hottest beading trends for Spring/Summer 2018. It can be worn as a choker or wrapped around the wrist as a bracelet for a barely there, carefree warm weather look.
Organic wooden beads are also on trend for Spring/Summer 2018.
They pair beautifully with the PANTONE fashion forecast colors, as well as come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Beachy looks are conducive to wearing natural elements, such as organic wooden beads.
On the bead weaving front, the hottest on trend technique is an ancient Japanese braiding method known as Kumihimo.
The design possibilities are endless with this ancient braiding technique, and bode well with the PANTONE fashion colors for Spring/Summer 2018. Just have fun with it!
