Having a career in graphic design, I always follow trends.  The trends I watch are not only design trends, but also fashion trends.  One quick spot to find this is with Pantone Fashion Report – you can read more on my thoughts on that here.  I also go to blogs and magazines to see what they say.  Below are the trends I have read about and some inexpensive alternatives for you to stay in style!
