FASHION TRENDS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2018

11/24/2017



With every year that comes and goes, new fashion trends come to the fore. Let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends that are expected to make a big mark in 2018…
Rebel Punk
It is of little surprise to see rebel punk return on the scene. After all, this was a year whereby many designers embraced the powerful platform they have available to them and expressed their political views. This was represented no better than by Demna Gvasalia at Balenciaga, who displayed a collection with elements from punk throughout and reference to phrases from the US president, Donald Trump. This rebelliousness was evident throughout many other runway collections, from Kenzo to Miu Miu. So, how do you make a rebel punk statement with your wardrobe? Get your Dr Marten boots out, gel your fringe, opt for slashed fabrics, and embrace spike earrings and slogan T-shirts.

Glam Sportswear
This is a trend that we have already seen throughout 2017, yet it is set to reach new heights in 2018. This is evident through the collections that were on display at Marc Jacobs and Prada, where the likes of retro sneakers, gym shorts, parkas, and polo shirts were widely on display.
Fringing
This may be the season for feathers, but next year we’re going to see fringing take over. It was the favoured choice of decoration at many runway shows, including Chanel, Calvin Klein, Loewe, and Celine. Fringing isn’t the easy fashion trend to master, as it has become largely linked with festival clothing. The key is to go big and bold. Opt for modern or luxe fabrics.
Back to the 90’s
If you want confirmation that 90’s style is back, all you need to do is look at Burberry’s revival of its classic check that made the brand so famous. Donatella Versace also went down memory lane, revisiting some of the design house’s most famous designs and prints. So, how can you ambulate 90’s style? Think grunge, cargo denim, pastels, feather boas, silky slips, and plaid dresses over t-shirts. The great thing about this trend is that it can easily be adapted to suit your style.
Glitz and glamour
Glitz and glamour made a return several years ago. However, with every year that passes, there is an update. This year it is the return of the voluminous pouf that was made famous by Cristobal Balenciaga. That’s right, it’s the bubble hemline. Team this with some elegant and lavish earrings like the custom earrings by Jaubalet, and a striking statement clutch bag, and you are good to go.
Sheer
Last but not least, we have the sheer trend. Come spring, expect your skirts to be long and transparent. Sheer dressing was a feature across collections from the likes of Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, and Dries van Noten. The sheer skirt has many guises, making this a more versatile trend than it seems. From super simple and multi-layered to net and tulle, the options are endless.
So there you have it; some of the top trends for 2018. Which trend will you be rocking?
