Jump on board the trend train with this season’s freshest looks. From preppy pastels and ’80s-inspired silhouettes to classic check prints, this is your guide to SS18, straight from the runway. These are this season’s trends.
Acceptable in the ’80s
It’s time to unearth those ’80s gems from the back of your wardrobe. Puff-sleeved jackets, high-waisted jeans and big-shouldered printed dresses in bold colours. Think Working Girl-worthy graphic prints and Dynasty glamour. There’s no better source than mom’s closet!
Palm Beach Baby
Versace took us straight back to the splashy, sun-drenched style of a 1960s Palm Beach socialite and then some. Gold accents, swish turbans and neck scarves are the name of the game for Spring 2018.
Designers raided the Pantone colour chart for pulsating primary colours – with tomato red, cobalt, emerald green and bright yellow sneaking into just about every collection. Better yet? Throw them all together for the
full rainbow effect.
Florals, for Spring. Groundbreaking. Devil Wears Prada references aside, it wouldn’t be spring without a blossoming of florals and pretty dresses – and this season doesn’t disappoint. Between pretty patterned materials, delicate appliquÉs and lovely, feminine sheer looks, there’s enough to go around to find the perfect spring frock.
