Although it has not felt like it lately, summer is just around the corner, which means it is the perfect time to give your wardrobe the bit of TLC that it deserves. With every new season that comes, there are always new fashion trends to embrace. No matter whether you are a follower of trends or not, these are some of the best ones that you will definitely want to incorporate into your wardrobe over the next few months…
Pastels – Let’s start with a trend that everyone can rock, irrespective of their taste in clothing. You can head to Basler Clothing for some inspiration on the different ways you can wear this trend. Expect to see lots of pastels over the summer months, such as duck egg blue, lemon, pink and lilac. Although pastel shades are known for being feminine and soft, you can go strong with these shades this season. Consider tailoring and lots of block colours to make a big and striking impact.
Plastic – Not only is this a unique trend, but it is actually one that is very practical when you consider our likelihood to have a few showers throughout the summer here in the UK. Waterproof plastics are fun to say the least. You can expect to see them in many different shades this summer, as they have already been displayed at the likes of Fendi, Calvin Klein, Topshop, Burberry, Marant, and Isabel.
Fringing – This is one of the more surprising trends this season. Everyone was expecting that fringing would be gone once and for all, as it has been used so many times in festival incarnations. However, the likes of Loewe and Bottega Veneta have given fringing an upgrade, with a more empowered and sophisticated feel.
Checks – Another trend that can be worn in a number of different ways: checks. Checks made a massive impact on the runway for the spring/summer 2018 shows. Burberry, Victoria Beckham and Balenciaga showed how to work this trend, with Victoria Beckham going for the more traditional approach while Balenciaga went for statement, voluminous coats. For an easy way to work this look, simply team somedenim jeans with a check shirt or bold coat.
Sequins – Last but not least, this is a trend for all of the glitzy and glamorous ladies reading this. Sparkles and sequins are set to make a huge impact over the summer months. And, who can deny how amazing sequins look when paired with a beautiful summer tan? This is not a trend that needs to b restricted to evening attire. You can easily style your sparkles with a sweatshirt to give them daytime longevity.
So there you have it: some of the best fashion trends for summer 2018. Which of these trends will you be adding to your wardrobe over the coming months?Sarah x
