As the year 2017 comes to an end, fashion-lovers can expect a lot of color and vibrant prints as trends for the new year. Architectural silhouettes and art-inspired graphic prints were seen on just about every runway. There are also some surprising and unexpected trends coming for 2018. Here are five great fashion friends for the new year.
Many of the top fashion design houses paid homage to many famed artists by featuring inspired prints on the spring runways. From structured long blazers with graphic prints at Prada to Andy Warhol dresses with vivid Marilyn Monroe imaging at Versace, the spring 2018 season is full of bold color and graphic designs as seen in Harper’s Bazaar. To make this bold trend more wearable from a ready-to-wear sense, add a bold print in the form of a clutch or tank top with solid, neutral-colored basics.
The Fanny Pack
As hard as it may be to comprehend, the fanny pack has made a wild resurgence in fashion and is now a top trend for 2018. Many urban subcultures are embracing the old-school trends of the 1980s, which is why the fanny pack has seen a fierce comeback in mainstay fashion. According to Elle, there are also a plethora of new ways to wear this fun style. You can wear it high up on the waist or on the low hip; or you can even wear it on the diagonal as a short crossbody bag.
From jackets to skirts, pants and even shoes, vibrantly-hued rubber was everywhere during the 2018 fashion shows. The Simon Miller show unveiled a very classy rubber business suit, and the Balenciaga show made accessories the focal point with rubber bags and shoes. Rubber garments and accessories give you the chance to play with the idea of mixing materials.
The Color Lavender
A soft and angelic hue, lavender was all over the runways during the 2018 shows. From cocktail dresses to chunky-knit sweaters and business suits, the color lavender was showcased in a variety of inspiring ways. This barely-there color complements most skin tones and looks great with charcoal gray, navy blue, beige, white, yellow and gold.
Monochromatic Denim Sets
Tonal denim looks are one of 2018’s biggest trends. Surprisingly, most of the denim looks are more tailored and structured. Skirt and pantsuits look surprisingly fresh and pulled together in dark denim. Many of the looks showcased on the runways could even be worn in some business-casual office settings.
The 2018 runway fashion trends offered an eclectic and diverse mix of styles. Pick one or two that suit your individual style to freshen up your existing wardrobe. Embrace color and invite new silhouettes into your closet.
