From London, New York, Paris and Milan, we’ve scoured the shows to bring you the top fashion trends of 2018 that emerged on the runways. What we love about major trends is that there isn’t a set way to wear any them, and there’s always room for interpretation to make them your own with what you already have hanging in your closet. Here’s our list of the top 18 fashion trends of 2018 to know about!
Perfect for literally any occasion, jumpsuits are the new cool girl essential — just zip up and you’re good to go! With so many options for any taste and body type, it’s no surprise that jumpsuits are on the up and up.
It doesn’t get anymore classic than a check pattern but when reimagined for 2018, what could be tired ol’ tartan is actually a breath of fresh air on the SS18 runways of Victoria Beckham, Balenciaga and Miu Miu.
Regardless of your stance when it comes to American politics, runways were definitely feeling the vibe with the increase of red, white and blue. Cool and classic for spring and summer, feel the Hamptons fantasy wherever you may go this season!
Denim x Denim
We know that denim on denim isn’t exactly a new trend but the way it’s being worn is different than what we’ve been seeing lately. We love the boxy and structured looks at Y/Project and we NEED to get our hands on a full length denim jacket a la Elizabeth and James.
Shine on, baby! Work a full on satin look and not only be the most comfortable one at the party but also look totes effortless and chic. We love this look as a two piece as seen at Peter Pilotto but also over pants seen at Roksanda.
Ride into 2018 on a high with an haute western look that’s sure to turn heads! We love how versatile this trend is — opt for a western style jacket or go full out with a big belt buckle + boots
Taking the athleisure trend to a whole other level is bike shorts and we’re not gonna lie — we’re really into it. Easily dressed up or down, this is a trend that can take you from the gym to girls night in a flash!
There’s something that happens to us all whenever we wear anything with a fringe, you shimmy and shake and twirl like a 6-year old. Fringe is so fun and we are so excited to see it coming back on the SS18 runways. Whether it’s for evening or day, fringe NEEDS to make a reappearance in your wardrobe!
Another trend making a resurgence is punk and we could not be more excited to dress like the badass #BossBabes we are and now you can too! From the runways of Christian Dior to the rocker runways of Moschino, the ways to interpret this trend are endless!
A little different from your dad’s fannypack from the 90s, these wearable bags are surprisingly chic and highly functional for the fashion girl (or boy!) on the go. Go traditional and sport it around your waist or rock it over one shoulder, either way you choose, your fanny will be the talk of the town!
90s workout Gear
Another 90s super trend, these looks from SS18 runways can literally go from the catwalk to cross fit and we are SO into it. Super comf and wearable, we seriously hope this trend sticks around!
As lovers of all things French, from skincare products to delish macarons, we may have done a mini happy dance when we saw the return of the beret on the SS18 runways. This simple topper literally transforms any outfit and gives it that effortless French-it-girl vibe!
Going back to the 60s, these Gidget-era cropped pants, called Petal Pushers, are not only super cute but really elongating for those of us lacking in the height department!
Who doesn’t love a sparkly or jewel encrusted shoe? Complete any outfit with a statement shoe and prepare to be complimented all night long.
Wide Leg Pants
Taking flare denim to the next level is wide leg pants and for SS18, we’re into this easy, breezy trend. Go boho and rock these trousers with flats or go all out and throw on a pair of platforms — the options are endless!
