Here’s the Fashion Trend That’s Counteracting Rainbow Colors this Spring

For every seasonal trend, there is a counter-trend. For spring 2018, the pragmatic, sporty functionality of monochromatic and neutral fashion has come out to contrast with the rainbow of Crayola colors and painterly prints we’ve already seen. It was utilitarian at its best with practical styles such as trench coats, drawstring jackets and jumpsuits with the use of essential details as decorative elements. In jewelry, this translates well into polished engravable dog tags with diamond edges, chunky link bracelets and signet style rings. These are no-frills but highly styled pieces that jewelry lovers will want to wear every day.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
