Top Fashion Trends for 2018

Even though the year is nearly halfway over, there are still some trends that you can take advantage of in 2018 that will keep you looking your best, according to popular designers.

 

Last year, we were reintroduced to couch floral patterns and pants with a paper bag waist, and this year, we can expect to see a little more of these trends, along with some new style innovations.

 

Berets made a significant appearance on the runways in 2017, and it looks like they’re here to stay in 2018 as well. The hats are sleek and stylish, and go great with both casual and dressy outfits. Berets that have sequin or velvet accents immediately make the accessory more refined, and materials like cotton and polyester are better suited for laid-back clothing choices.

 

When it comes to color, ultra violet is on trend for 2018, particularly in the warmer months of the year. This bright purple shade looks great on all skin tones and is prevalent in sundresses and flowing blouses.

 

You can also make a fashion statement this year with earrings that are sure to get everyone’s attention. Whether you’re partial to floral earrings or ear jewelry with geometric shapes, you can wear these accessories with virtually any outfit. Whether you’re heading to a casual event in the summer or a formal occasion in winter, ornate earrings will keep you in style for all of 2018.

 

If you want to wear a conservative dress that has a bit of an edge, the side split is a great choice for 2018. Formal and prom dresses with this feature are trendy this year, and allow you to show off your legs for a sexy spin on a full length dress.

2018 Fashion Trends to Follow

With 2017 fading fast in the rearview mirror, it’s time to update our looks for 2018. What’s in? What’s out? So far, 2018 is shaping up to be a year for big statements and individual style — clothing that’s comfortable and expresses your own personal flair. That said, there are some trends that are sure to be more popular than others. Here are three of the easiest fashion week trends to incorporate into your wardrobe.

What’s Old Is New Again

Nostalgia for 1980s style came on strong in 2017, thanks in part to shows like Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” It only seems appropriate that 2018 has moved on to the 1990s for sartorial inspiration. Borrow the oversized, colorful looks from R&B icons like TLC and Aaliyah. For some ideas on how to make this trend look fresh and new, check out the video for “Finesse” from Bruno Mars, featuring Cardi B, which pays tribute to “In Living Color.”

Mix It Up

Florals, checks, and leopard print are in. You can wear them alone, but for maximum fashion impact, mix them together. Don’t be afraid to try checks with florals! Take your cue from the latest in street style with clashing prints and bright, bold colors.

Get Glitzy

If you like sequins, glitter, and glamour, you’re in luck. This year’s must-wear fashion brings nighttime aesthetics into daylight. Think blazers and jeans with sequins, or t-shirts mixed glittery pants. If you’re reluctant to fully embrace the glitz, try wearing statement accessories instead.
