Fashion Trends & Styling Tips For 2018

Congratulations! You made it through 2017’s sense of style and looked every inch of a diva on the streets or at your workplace. And, as you read this you have already ushered into what 2018 holds for all of us in terms of fashion. Thanks to the fashion-forward industry, many designers over-the-word have already showcased the ‘18 collection. So, we rolled up some massive trends that are going to rule your wardrobe in 2018:

Pastel Hues

The lavender shade is surely going to be the new pink for all of us in 2018. Whether you want to opt for a nice romantic dress for a date or a blazer at work, you will spot this shade everywhere. So, you better be ready for this sweet shade explosion!

Athleisure Fashion


Displaying brand logos of the fanciest athletic fashion brands is something we think will never go out of style. From the sporty logo tees to Yoga pants, you’ll see a rise of activewear blossoming yet again.

Wide Leg Trousers


These comfortable trousers are here to stay for a long time. Ranging from high waist trousers to wide-leg cropped ones, this bottom wear will look stylish with silk camisole tops or even those full sleeve shirts.

Frills galore


All fashion houses have agreed that frills will be big next season. Dresses, blouses, tops and skirts all came adorned with frills, in styles ranging from glam to ethereal to sophisticated and sometimes even a touch pastoral. With their highly feminine feel, frills were seen in various fabrics and were sometimes paired with fringing.

Sporty chic


Sportswear has been a major womenswear trend for several seasons. This showed no sign of waning during the recent fashion month, with lots of sports-inspired details seen on elegant and feminine silhouettes or sometimes on highly sophisticated looks. For 2018, this is characterized by flat shoes – sometimes even sneakers – as well as technical fabrics used alongside luxury fabrics, shorts worn with glam blazers, and soccer jerseys or polo shirts worn as dresses and matched with refined accessories and details.

Ode to the 1980s


Spring/summer 2018 collections featured lots of denim jackets, shirts and pants, as well as high-waist darted pants, satin and shiny fabrics, glittery details and garments with striking shoulders – all echoing fashion trends of the 1980s.

Asymmetric cuts


Designers have been showing a multitude of pieces with asymmetric cuts for the spring/summer 2018 season. Tops, blouses and jackets are first in line, revealing a single shoulder for a sensual and glamorously feminine touch. Miniskirts are also seen shorter at one side than the other, along with some tailored jackets and a handful of dresses.

Flowers back in bloom


In keeping with the spring season, flowers are back, with colorful blooms and natural florals seen in mini and XXL versions. Blooms adorn dresses from head to toe, or are combined with other spring-inspired motifs.

Leather, denim and PVC


Leather and denim will be on trend next season. Leather brings a punky rock ‘n’ roll vibe to the season while denim adds a retro, sportswear and streetwear touch to sophisticated silhouettes. PVC – preferably of the clear variety – is another key material for spring/summer 2018, especially for accessories.

Have fun dressing up in 2018!
