This week, the Trendstop cartwalk team invites WeConnect Fashion readers to be inspired by essential shades emerging in Fall 2016 womenswear, as we reveal three influential new trends taken from this season’s color palette.

Spanning both Fashion Colours and Accents, these vibrant, fruity tones add a fashion-forward feel to products, offering a bold alternative to more conventional winter darks. While they are coming through strongly in directional F/W 16-17 collections, these colors would also work well for more mainstream ranges going into Fall 2017.
