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.
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.
