29 FALL 2017 Western & English Today FOLLOW FASHION AND DESIGN TRENDS Seidel and Montoya both agree that the green hues of turquoise have become even more popular lately, partly due to the fact that Carico Lake is still producing stones of that color. Seidel adds that "green is popular in fashion and home paint colors right now so the green hues go with those trends." e ubiquitous squash blossom necklace is also enjoying a major resurgence, in casual bohemian looks and high fashion alike. Luckily, there are a variety of price points and variations with the squash blossom style, from simple, lightweight silver to real heavyweights that boast large turquoise stones and multiple colors of accent stones. What's next? "Concho belts are the next hot item," says Angela Montoya. "I think it will take off this Fall." Ranging from bright blue to deep teal and lime green, the iconic stone, paired with exceptional, unique silverwork, transcends generational style. While some trends fade, Native turquoise jewelry never goes out of style, making it a wardrobe staple and, therefore, a no- brainer for any Southwestern store.
