Let’s get you right at the door of this years trend train – we’re ready to give you our ultimate guide to the SS18 trend.
Fashion Month is over and we have our cases emptied. We have completed our SS18 fashion research and we think it’s high time we got you wardrobe plotting for next season’s style. Come on, it can definitely never be too early to get cracking with your wish-list – that is if you really do want to stand a chance of getting that Gucci couture hat. So here goes – our taking on a whirlwind adventure at the London/Milan/NY/Paris Fashion Week.
We know you may associate pastel colours with Hyacinth Bucket but trust us, these delicate sugared almond shades are about to make a real fashion statement. The standout show by Preen, which took inspiration from saris and women’s rights movements, showcased how to look pretty and powerful at the same time – we saw draped shades and one-shouldered dresses in truly lovely shades of pink and green. The massive news: Lilac is not just for the Queen mother – it is ready for making its way back to fashion. Grab yourself a pretty bad in a lilac shade, or just enjoy a lovely dollop of Neapolitan.
Choose Check Print
Checks are no longer for winter-only, they are now giving a convincing performance for our spring wardrobe. We saw folksy ginghams at Loewe, as well as adorable red and blue plaids at Alexander McQueen, and Fendi provided us with a whole show, even showcasing checked tights.
Major statement fringing was another fashion trend we loved – think swishing hemlines and necklines as well as bags – plus much more. There weren’t any wishy-washy boho trims in sight. Instead, it was more the look of being dragged through a shredder. That means all you need to wear is your Erdem or Calvin Klein dress and you can give the car a great polishing.
Really pull out all the stops with a couture hat or a chic accessory, as Rebecca Couture Millinery so beautifully showcases.
We adored the way Marc Jacobs showcased his look with swirly prints, turbans and rainbow colours. Picture Lilly Pulitzer in that sun-drenched Palm Beach look of the 1960s, take it up a good few notches – you’ve got it. Take the two-piece Hawaiian-tropic from Gucci, paired with glittery gloves and lots of necklaces.
Those basic, boring shorts. The ones that are right at the back of your wardrobe and only come out when you have nothing else to put on. A least that is what we thought up until now, 2018 will see a rise in Statement Shorts. We saw silky boxer styles from Louis Vuitton and high-waisted leathers from Saint Laurent, as well as plenty of Shorts Suits. That’s right, the fashion tailoring of the summer is going to stop at the knee.
