Can you believe that February’s done? It seems that January lasted for 3 months and February, the fashion month, for only 10 days! Crazy, isn’t it? Be as it may, February brought to us new rules and trends as far as fashion is concerned, so we can relax now browsing the internet to find the best fashion combinations we are going to rock during the course of 2018. So, take a look at the best fashion trends that are going to be huge this year:
One of the most prominent trends that somehow started in 2017 but reached its peak this year is definitely wearing PVC plastic garments. If you don’t own a plastic piece of clothing, consider yourself totally unprepared for the upcoming season. Chanel and Valentino started this whole trend by introducing their PVC transparent coats, but if these are a bit too much for you, you can always opt for a PVC accessory such as a belt, backpack or shoes. The good thing about these is that they won’t be hiding your killer combination you’re wearing underneath, so you can always wear the best pieces you own and still have them noticed, even with a coat on top!
A lot of gold is in this season! Thanks to Versace, gold accessories are bigger and bolder than ever. Make no mistake, though, the trend is not wearing gold from head to toe – one of the biggest hits the following season will be golden accessories. So choosing between a golden brooch that you will put on a beige blazer like Gigi Hadid in Versace’s backstage photo shoot, a black leather belt with golden details or a lot of golden necklaces around your neck is definitely something all of us will be doing this year. Make sure to get all the golden rings and bracelets your mom or grandma have and rock them out in the streets proudly. Be golden this year!
It seems that Versace is dictating the trends this season. Could it be because of the TV show American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace? Probably not, as Versace is always magnificent. Another thing that is going to be huge this year are colors. For example, the already mentioned brand rocked multiple colors on a single garment, but the most prominent was the combination of navy blue and red, which does indeed look amazing. Moreover, it’s also the season of comic book pants and tops, so having your favorite cartoon or comic book character on your thighs is possible this year. Lastly, choosing different brands to put on your top is also something you should look for – take any 90s brand logo and have it printed on your t-shirt. Fantastic!
As far as oriental is concerned, there is a place in the fashion industry that is reserved only for this. Namely, if you’ve ever wanted to wear a kaftan this is your chance to, because 2018 is the season for that. The positive thing about kaftans is that they are not only meant for the beach. There are some which are excellent for wearing during the day in the city, or ones that are dark, so they’re excellent for a cold, rainy day. The uniqueness and originality of kaftans always improves our mood, so make sure to check out a couple of them and equip yourself with at least one for the seasons to come.
Perhaps this future we’re living at the moment isn’t the future that we expected to see ten years ago, but there are sure futuristic elements that met our expectations. Even though it’s still not fashionable to go out in the streets wearing futuristic garments from head to toe, you should definitely choose one and combine with the rest of your attire. This season, the biggest futuristic hits are definitely sunglasses and shoes, so if you get to see something that you really like, go ahead and wear it with confidence!
Last but not the least, let’s talk a bit about probably the biggest trend of the previous year that is only becoming stronger and stronger. Ladies (and some gentlemen), we’re talking about athleisure! This year, you literally have no rules, as you can combine high-quality sneakers with a formal gown and still look hella good.
It seems that 2018 doesn’t have any rules, but you know the fashion world – you cannot make any mistakes. So if you’re a fashionista and really do care about what your Instagram followers will say about your attire – take a couple of ideas from this list and watch the likes and followers multiply.
