Social media is a fabulous way to keep an eye on the latest trends. Watching what ones peers are wearing and sharing is essential if you wish to keep up with the fast pace of style. With all of the wonderful social network services such as Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, and Twitter, where should we begin our quest? Well, it is important not to forget about the very "visual" social sharing site Pinterest.
Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing the things that inspire you. Fortunately, tons of people on their network are interested in "fashion". Monitoring the pins and boards is a clever way to stay on the cutting edge.
What's a Pin? Pins are like handsome little bookmarks. Whenever you find something on the web that you want to keep, add it to Pinterest. Your newly minted Pin will be here whenever you need it, and will always link back to the site it came from.
Pins are collected on boards. Boards are where you organize your Pins.
Trend boards are typically used by merchandisers and designers as a method to organize concepts to help them develop a collection. The boards can be utilized to organize ideas regarding colors, fabrics, silhouettes, etc. Even when using them to develop an apparel presentation, it is possible for the board to include only clothing, or potentially have no clothing at all. For example, a designer can add pictures of grass, tree leaves, or green house paint, as they try to determine a shade to be utilized for a green color trend concept for sweaters. It is not critical to actually have sweater artwork on that particular trend board.
In this section, we have a slightly different way of arranging concepts. We have categories various elements that we believe to be important. These elements are portrayed online by utilizing Pinterest pins & boards to form collections from across the web. Hopefully these will help you monitor trends in fashion.
