The Top 8 Fashion Trends of 2018
New year, new wardrobe.
For many, a fresh step into the new year requires a spring clean and an update of your clothes and accessories. And if you're going to do that, you may as well be on trend, right?
Not sure what to look out for? Worry not, our handy list of the top fashion trends of 2018 should help give you an idea of the staple pieces to invest in for the new year. So, without further ado, let's jump right into it!
Jumpsuits are one of the more fun and practical fashion trends of 2018. A great and versatile piece that every woman should have in her wardrobe, a jumpsuit can be dressed up or down as a casual or more dressy piece.Here are a few of our favourites:
Close to my Heart - Strapless Jumpsuit
This frilly, luxuriously silky strapless jumpsuit is a great piece to pack in your suitcase for your 2018 summer holiday. Soft to the touch, it's lightweight and creates a smart yet striking silhouette that will flatter most body shapes.
There are also crystal embellishments on the neckline for a bit of shimmer and glam - no extra accessories required to stand out in this cheeky number! Also, it has pockets! Admit, you're impressed. If you're looking to get one for yourself, you'll be pleased to know it comes in sizes small to extra large.
Muscari Black Jumpsuit
This is Muscari's jumpsuit response to the famous LBD - say hello to the little black jumpsuit.
This piece is a perfect example of a jumpsuit that can be dressed up or down. Just add a statement block coloured blazer, bag, or some glittering accessories and bold statement heels.
Jumpsuit Tribal Print
This fun tribal print jumpsuit by Ruby YaYa is a fun and wild little number that will make you stand out in any crowd. It can be paired with so many different colours and its animal print will ensure you're always looking fierce.
2. 80s and 90s Workout Gear Nostalgia
People are mad for the 80s and 90s again, as has been evidenced by all the biker jackets, patches and statement tees. If one of your new year's resolutions is to get fit, why not start incorporating bolder block colours into your workout gear and punchy sports logos. Trust us, strikingly colourful and eye-catching gym get-ups have been spotted in even the most major of fashion houses such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Exercise never was so fashionable.
3. Flirty Frills and Floral Prints
Perhaps the complete opposite of the sporty spice feel we're getting from the workout nostalgia, for the more feminine and flirty among us, you'll be pleased to know that one of the fashion trends of 2018 is floaty, girlish date-night couture. Looking for floral and floaty, look no further than this Joseph Ribkoff off-white floral t-shirt. Effortlessly cool, this top pushes a more casual look that will look great with jeans or a pencil skirt for a more formal look.
Frills and Feminine Lace
There are loads of beautiful, boho styled pieces that would fit this style beautifully. The Nightingale Dress by Pari is one of these. Made from delicate English Embroidery, the lace and cotton exude femininity and grace.
Bell sleeves give off the true boho vibe, and the v-neck allows for great accessorisation. Wear it as a tunic over jeans or trousers, or as a dress.
The Kahlo Shirt by Lula Soul gives off similar flirty summer vibes with its loose, breezy casual fit. The scalloped trim on the sleeves makes for a beautiful touch of detail.
The Moonbeam Gardenia dress by Ruby YaYa and The Savannah Crochet lace dress by Cafe Latte are both giving us regency era vibes that Jane Austen would be proud of.
4. Dark Denim
Dark denim is back as one of the fashion trends of 2018! We have a couple of ideas for some great pairs to stock your drawers and cupboard up with. New London's Chelsea dark denim jeans are beautifully fitted, with some cool white stitched designs and details on the pockets and along the seams.
Capri's Dark Indigo jeans are soft and lightweight, they have a fun little ankle zip. Slim-fitted and high-waisted, these jeans sure are shapely. Looking for a different style during the warmer months? Marilyn's Crop Cuff Denim jeans offer a cuffed hem that cuts just below the knee.
Their revolutionary Lift Tuck(R) Technology slims from within for a slenderizing look.
5. Fringes and Tassels
Have fun with fringes as they're the next in our list of fashion trends of 2018. Check out this Frank Lyman black fringe bolero to add some movement to your outerwear. For fringe AND sequin fun, Cafe Latte has this cheeky little lightweight tambourine jacket that will look great in the Spring and Summer. It also comes in pink!
Not feeling confident to rock fringes on your clothes? Why not accessorize with them, instead? For light and airy festival cool, check out this macrame hand-woven strap bag. Another summery option is this roomy tassel-toting Gioseppo Kenya bag, complete with gemstones and pom-poms for playful South-American vibes.
For a more long-wearing, everyday use bag, Terri does these casual yet smart fringed crossbody shoulder bags in tan and turquoise. Delia's smaller fringe shoulder bags in silver and black are the perfect size for a night out on the town.
6. The Fanny Pack is Back
Yes, you heard that right. Also known as the 'bum bag', we can't say why exactly high fashion has decided this holiday accessory is now trendy, but in the fashion gods, we trust.
Tourist chic, anyone?
7. Lovely in Lavender
This soft, pastel shade is set to conquer over 'millennial pink' this year and become one of the most popular colours to grace high-street clothes racks this year.
Perhaps one to combine with the flirty frills and floral trend?
8. Art-Pop Patterns
Warhol-inspired pieces were seen everywhere all over the Spring 2018 runway, from Versace to Prada. Go for bold, pop-art inspired patterns and live your colourful, art-filled fashion fantasy. Got a favourite artist or piece of art? Why not browse Etsy for accessories inspired by your favourite classic artists, such as this Van Gogh Starry Night scarf, or these earrings inspired by Monet's waterlilies.
