Entry #5: Soft and Hard line Trends

The trends I found while shopping at Macy’s included Geometric pattern, snakeskin, metal hardware, leather, and deep red color. The Geometric pattern I found in jewelry, home décor such as rugs, and apparel. Snakeskin was used heavily in purses, lamps, and hosiery. I found metal hardware popular on boots, pillows, and furniture. Leather was used traditionally in jackets but more as a trim than the entire jacket, gloves, and a lot in furniture especially chairs and ottomans. Finally, I noticed deep red as a popular color in women’s apparel, home décor such as vases and lamps, and furniture.
