Top 5 Trends from Fashion Week
New York and London Fashion Weeks brought spring style to the runways. From bold and unexpected prints to plastic pants to an unexpected break-out color, I’m sharing the five biggest trends from the designer runways with you.
1. Lovely Lavender
Spring 2018’s “it” color is lavender. This pastel purple will replace the popular “millennial pink” as seen in the collections of Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors. The soft hue is one of the statement trends of the year and is showing up in feminine formal wear, skirts, tunics, suiting and knits. Try pairing a lavender blouse or blazer with your favorite pair of dark blue jeans, as it will create a beautiful color contrast. Finish the look with a bold lip and you’ve got a chic look – perfect for any springtime occasion.
2. The Year of Plastic
You’ll never look at your mom’s dishwashing gloves or your Bubbe’s couch covers the same way again, as brands are taking plastic and rubberized materials and transforming them into unexpectedly chic silhouettes like anorak jackets, skirts, boots and clutches. Clearly, the see-through style is the newest way to show off your layered looks.
3. Pattern Play
Channel your inner fashionista by experimenting mixing and matching eccentric patterns. Pair large, bold florals with stripes or polka dots for a unique style. Just because prints may not match, doesn’t mean they don’t complement each other. How to achieve this look: Choose two different patterns that share the same colors or tones.
4. Not So Short Shorts
Arizona’s summer heat is on its way and so is the anxiety of wearing short shorts. Not to worry! This spring, the longer bike short and classic preppy short is back in style. So, don’t stress about showing off your legs in cutoff denim shorts, because a longer active-inspired short or a pleated black or khaki short is a much posher option for 2018.
5. Flaunt that Brand
If you’re interested in what brand your favorite celebrity is wearing, look no further than their clothes. Logos are plastered on the shirts, belts and bags of our favorite fashion icons. This trend has been on the upswing since celebrities like Kendal Jenner and Justin Bieber started showing off their Calvin’s, but logo mania has extended far beyond the elastic waistband of underwear. Brand names are being shown off on just about every item of clothing.
Springtime is on the horizon, so prepare to push your winter wear to the back of your closet and bring these fashions to the front.
