Designers are always trying to find a balance of art and potential commercial success in their garments. But in for Spring 2018, Designers have decided to combine the two, showing wearable art in their collections. Andy Warhol inspired prints was seen from Calvin Klein to Versace and cartoon inspired prints was seen on the Prada Runway.
Plaid, Plaid, and more Plaid
The new trend has already taken over the street style scene but this year expect the print to be in bold colors on coats, mens-inspired blazers, skirts, dresses, and accessories.
2018 is the year to embrace taboo fashion, including one of the most taboo of all: the fannypack. The bag is making a fashionable comeback as celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, A$AP Rocky, Rihanna, and Bella Hadid have been spotted rocking the bag designed by high fashion, luxury brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Balenciaga.
80s & 90s Nostalgia
Throwback fashion made a comeback at the Spring 2018 runway shows. From Rihanna’s Fenty x Puma inspired by 80s and 90s atheletic wear to Gucci presenting 80s glamour on the runway, designers are being inspired by the past to create looks for the future.
Already seen on bags, skirts, and tops, expect fringe to be on all your clothing items in 2018, in both daytime and night. This fun trend was seen on the runway at Calvin Klein and Dior.
This trend is having a major revival in 2018, taking over for 2017’s year of vinyl. Seen at Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Velentino, expect your clothing-from trench coats, bags, and boots to be made from clear plastic.
