Spring/summer is here and it’s time to flex your fashion muscle. Unless you have the luxury of starting from scratch each season, you most likely have basic pieces you want to carry over and update incorporating the trends of the season. Building a strong core wardrobe allows for adding fun, easy, current pieces without breaking the bank. On the other hand, if the sky is the limit you’ll have no problem finding a brigade of styles to choose from.
Adding any one or combination of these spring 2018 fashion trends will have you ready for the glam-comfort of 2018.
The Eyes Have It
Sunglasses might be the last thing on your wishlist, but they took center stage for the spring 2018 fashion trends. Small, cat eye sunglasses were the look du jour, and remain the hottest shades to add to your look. Tiny sunglasses are here to stay. A whole new crop of women will be shelving their oversized frames for micro frames.
It’s in the Bag
Bags come in all new shapes. Classic bag silhouettes will never go out of style, but on spring runways designers are thinking less in terms of lady like bags and more about geometric forms. Opt for a cutting edge, architecturally structured bag and up your fashion quotient.
Make it a Mule
The mule became a fashion staple a few seasons ago, and it’s definitely not going anywhere any time soon. Look for styles in bold hues, florals, special detailing and sculptured heals.
Red is the color of the spring 2018 fashion trends and nobody does it better than Gucci. If head to toe red scares you try adding a traditional silk blouse or punch it up with a pair of divine red shoes or sun glasses. Trade in that black leather jacket for a sizzling red hot number.
Want to feel glamorous and relaxed at the same time? Well, you should. That’s called modern luxury. It’s time to mix things up a little bit. If the 70s was glam-rock, then 2018 should be the season of glam-comfort. No one wants to be constrained by their clothes any more. Straight legs and light washes are back.
Ultra-feminine pastel suiting was undoubtedly one of the biggest trends in the streets and on the runways, There’s no law that says pantsuits have to be boring, corporate or serious. It doesn’t even have to be matchy- matchy. It’s a suit of intention more than an actual suit. Opt for a pair of wide legged pants in a statement-making color. It instantly brightens any look.
Nothing beats a traditional belted blazer. The wear on its own blazer is just what you need to sharpen up your old elastic waist band and sneaker combos. Pair with a t-shirt and jeans or pull a power lady move and look for a matching set.
