Fashion blogger Urszula Makowska reveals upcoming fashion trends for 2018
As the year comes to an end, we have seen many trends dominate the market from the bold red to oversized sleeves to off the shoulder tops, etc. With the new year around the corner, we will be seeing new trends to dominate the market and it will be time to say goodbye to those 2017 trends.
New color that will dominate the market
Forget about everything, for S/S 2018, we see a new color that will dominate the market. That color is lavender. We’ve seen it all on the runway from S/S 18 runway shows. From head to toe full-on lavender or just even a pop of lavender. I know I will be wearing a lavender suit from head to toe this upcoming season. It’s feminine and chic and the ideal spring color from the pastel colors that tend to be popular in demand during this time of year.
Although lavender will dominate the market, color blocking is classic spring trend that is not going away anytime soon. Shine bright like a diamond and pair of those bold colors. You can color block with a yellow trench coat and red dress underneath. There are plenty of ways to play around with this.
Well, what about the classic trench coat? Scratch that. We used to see trench coats during the fall. Now we will see the classic trench coat in different forms like we have never seen before during the spring. Belted with oversized belts, fringed on the bottom as a detail, and definitely a variety of different colors that make this trend unique.
The classic upgrade
The classic slip dress we all loved, will no longer be classic. The classic slip dress gets an upgrade. It’ll be the perfect dress for a night out with friends. Sexier and edgier it’ll be the one piece we will want to have in our closet. We will find it in a variety of metallic colors.
Along with that, dark washed denim on denim is back. I know I definitely will invest in a two-piece set of dark washed denim. It looks so chic and is the perfect casual look for the girl out in the city. Either a jacket or pants or jacket and skirt will work just perfectly.
Fringe is still on!
Also, don’t forget to get your fringe on. Fringe is a continuous trend we will see and it is not leaving. We will see fringed feather dresses, fringe on our trench coats, and fringed tops everywhere. I will definitely get my fringe on.
As edgy and chic as I am, my favorite spring and summer trend is the sheerness. I love sheer tops and look forward to excitingly pair them with the midi skirts that are to be in style. It’s super chic and perfect for anywhere on the go.
And last but not least, my favorite trend of all times will be the transparent or translucent shoes. I have never owned a pair, but I am about to invest in a classic Yeezy’s from season 4, as it will dominate the season. Pair it with a cute two-piece set and you’re ready to go.
As we wait patiently for the F/W 19/20 trends, I can tell you for a fact we will see shades of browns, grays, and black. Layering will continue to dominate the market and anything from comfort will stay. Oversized sweaters, turtlenecks, woven pants, and puffers will be here to stay. We will see dark floral patterns and we will be bringing back goth.
