Tacky Chic

In lieu of subdued neutrals, more brands are favoring bold brash colors and garishness

Implications - Though neutrals have been thought of as a way to reach a wide audience by many brands, more and more companies are choosing to use attention-grabbing designs and hues to please consumers who have a desire to stand out. Being incorporated into everything from billboards to home decor, an fearless attitude and color scheme are being favored by companies.
