Holidays, Fashion Trends Show the Way
Choosing from an endless array of fabric prints for this spring’s line of bandannas can be an overwhelming chore. You want the perfect add-on accessory for your freshly groomed clients. Of the thousands of color schemes and designs, choose options that will send the polished and sophisticated message you’re looking for.

Remembering the holidays this spring, send a thoughtful message that you think of your four-legged clients as members of the family who have the right to celebrate. With Valentine’s Day approaching, offering an extra touch with red or heart-themed bandanas, gives your customers the chance to express their love for their pets.

St. Patrick’s Day also offers a great opportunity to offer festive prints. A touch of the Irish can be a fun way to celebrate a holiday that continues to grow in popularity. “Kiss Me I’m Irish” or “Pot O’ Gold” bandanas in the spirit of the day show a thoughtfulness that customers appreciate.

While choosing your lineup for the season, in general, try to keep in mind trends in human fashion. As more pet owners think of their animals as having human attributes, style becomes and important factor.

Wordpress.com, a web log that tracks style and fashion trends, recently released its forecast for this spring’s fabric trends. To grab the attention of your style-savvy, consider searching out bandanas with these hot trends in mind.

Fabric Trends for Spring

  • Lighter, softer tones are in. Flowing, semi-sheer styles are expected to dominate catwalks.
  • Pastels, including pale yellows, pinks and greens – a throwback to the 1980s are expected to take center stage again, along with a resurgence of ruffles.
  • Rough, industrial fabrics are expected to balance feminine trends.
  • Old favorites: paisley, animal prints and tie die are expected to remain strong.
  • Male fabrics are expected to remain consistent with classic colors (pale orange, olive, gray and pink)
