The previous year, 2017, set its tone in warmer and more neutral shades of color. It was mostly about beiges and camels, pastel shades of bright colors and colors closer to nature. This year, however, these palettes have taken a sharper turn towards bold colors. It has been about reds, ultra-violet, and colors in metallic tones. Vibrant colors enforce a sense of energy in their environment hence everyone has shifted towards these trends which seem to stay put for the next year as well.
