Global color trends forecaster Pantone Color Institute has revealed the hues that are expected to dominate spring and summer 2018. The announcement came ahead of the start of the Spring/Summer 2018 shows, which commenced last Thursday at the New Fashion Week in Manhattan. The list consists of 12 new colors, a deviation from the traditional 10.

The experts and fashion insiders at the color authority believe that the chosen shades will allow for more experimentation and opportunities for self-expression.

Apart from the 12, Pantone released a classic color palette, which consists of four shades considered as mainstays in any wardrobe design.
