I totally agree with Lauren Alexis Fisher on the below trends which we must add to our wardrobe—Monique Helou
- Art- infused prints- from comic-inspired faces to Andy Warhol classics and graphic designs- came to life on this season’s standout jackets and dresses.
- This season’s florals are bigger and bolder – offered in a variety of colors and retro-inspired prints to add fresh air into your wardrobe.
- From Jackets to jeans, skirts, and suiting separates, dark wash denim reigned supreme in every form.
- Fringe is becoming more playful and over-the-top than ever. Ultra-glam, dramatic fringe was spotted on the runways at Calvin Klein, Dior, Loewe, and more. For those looking to try the trend, it’s already surfacing on bags, skirts, and playful trimmed tops for a more subtle way to embrace the look.
- A new pastel is emerging as the next must-have color and the pretty pastel shade of lavender proved to be the IT color for SPRING.
- Plaid is emerging as the standout print of the season.
- White ethereal maxi dresses act as the ultimate clean slate to your spring wardrobe.
- The Plastics are a fantastic add to our spring garments. From Calvin Klein to Valentino and Chanel, clear plastic outerwear (and footwear) is having a major revival.
- Workout gear gets a high-fashion makeover these days. Retro workout pieces weren’t just spotted on Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma Spring collection, but also at fashion houses like Gucci, Tod’s, and Louis Vuitton, bringing the ultimate mashup of high fashion and the gym. For 2018, incorporate the pieces once reserved for old-school workout videos into your everyday wardrobe.
- The classic trench coat was reimagined in endless new ways to try with feathers and sheer fabrics.
- Think Pink in shades from blush to light fuchsia this spring.
- The Fannypack is back. One of the most taboo accessory trends of all time is making its comeback—and it’s officially cooler than ever. Earlier in 2017, the bag trend was spotted on Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, and Bella Hadid. For Spring 2018, it was all over the runways, proving the revamp is here to stay.
The Trends To Retire
They’ve all had a long run, and made for some good looks along the way, but it’s time for us to collectively let go of chokers, and off-the-shoulder tops—for now.
