Trend Alert: Black Is Back


Black is back and trending for 2018. This year, look out for unusual suspects: paint trends, home appliances, and even wedding dresses are breaking with tradition and embracing the darkness.

What does that mean for you? As black makes its comeback, you may find yourself craving onyx hues. Matte and minimal, flashy and fashionable, or everyday indispensable, True Brands has your trend report on the many shades of black.

1) Make drinkware part of your decor

According to the Washington Post, black stainless steel appliances are growing in popularity. As their presence increases on Pinterest boards and in home decor publications, a painless way to try the trend is with coordinated black barware.

The Warren collection by Viski makes a stunning visual statement. These sleek black bar tools offer everything you need to make great-tasting cocktails, plus accessories for stylish serving.


2) Combine with copper

If strict minimalism isn’t your scene, try combining black with another foolproof design trend: copper. These highball glasses from Viski’s Raye collection do the trick—the smoked glass vessels have been dipped in copper, putting a sophisticated twist on an already-elevated look.


3) Accessorize

Black accessories can almost always be considered chic, but there was a special place for them at fashion weeks this year. Our bracelet flask and bowtie bottle opener necklace, both by Blush, do double duty: they keep you stylish, while bringing an extra dose of low-key fun to girls’ nights and gatherings.


4) Go techie chic (and quirky)

This bottle opener mimics the shape of a fob and comes with a ring for keeping keys organized. While it’s every bit as fun and useful as its bowtie necklace cousin, this bottle opener appeals to a wryer, tech-savvier giftee.


5) Put a retro spin on things

This Blush bottle stopper is two trends in one: not just elegant black, but the perennial favorite cat eye glasses. This distinct shape was made famous by Audrey Hepburn, and it’s come back in eyewear trends of the past few years. Shop with confidence—our homage to the cat eye looks flattering on any bottle shape.


6) Cover your basics

We love learning about what’s new, but let’s not forget the classics. This sturdy water bottle makes a great gift for him: not only can it be used every day, but its matte black appeals to those with a more understated style.
