Summer fashion is always the highlight of the year, what with colourful clothes, fancy attaches and the use of unique and wispy materials, summer trends always have us being swept off in some way to a fantastical dreamland of wonder and colour, and 2018 is no different at all. Check out this season’s hottest trends to get in on while they’re still here.
1980s – Back With Style
The big sleeves, the ruching, the electric and bold colours are back and better than ever. With the 80s suddenly cropping up all over the shop in both TV, film and more it’s no wonder they’re back with a vengeance in the fashion scene too. So get your hair crimper out and don some of the decade’s coolest threads. Okay, maybe not the crimper.
Primary and pastel colours are usually hot for summer, but this year we’re seeing various fashion styles coming in some of the boldest of the primaries. Violet suit jackets, royal blue trousers and more are all making their mark on the catwalk and injecting some colour into the world to go along with the hot weather. If primaries are a bit too bold for you, check out some of the pretty pastel shades that are making their mark this season too – there’s really something for everyone this summer!
Checks are back (or did they ever leave?), and with checkered jackets, trousers, shirts and more hitting the catwalk as well as stores everywhere now’s the time to catch this trend before it leaves the shelves. The nice thing about checks is that they’re usually popular into the autumn months as well, so you can’t really go wrong with this trend over the summer if you want something with some longevity.
Fringe is making a comeback and it’s all over everything this year! From dresses to jackets, attaches and bags fringe is a great addition to make any outfit or accessory stand out. This is a bit of a different style of fringing from that of a couple years back though – more bold, fierce and in your face these fringes are all about making the statement that the piece of cloth has been fed through a shredder. Bad? Oh, no! This is a statement that will have heads turning.
Like fringe, feathers are in this summer and are making an appearance on a number of different articles from dresses to bags, earrings and more. Feathers have always had a bit of a bohemian sentiment behind them and it’s helped their fashion longevity in a big, big way. Since bohemian styled stuff keeps coming back around every so often, feathers never really leave, so if you’re looking for a cool permanent fixture in your wardrobe, consider feathers.
Fun In Floral
Flowers are in for summer and for good reason. So many looks can be achieved by adding a bit of floral fun on some fabric and it’s a great way to inject some life and colour into an outfit. Floral print is making a statement this season – whether it’s a light inclusion just peeking out from a collar or a full floral dress, it works this year.
So there you have some of the best fashion statements for 2018’s summer season. It’s time to get in on one or two before they’re gone!
