5 TRENDS FOR FALL/ WINTER 2018
The leaves are turning and the snow is about to fall, which means another wardrobe change. Out go the short shorts and in comes the long pants and long sleeves. The real question is what should you incorporate in your closet this time around. Well, we are here to help. Here are the top five trends for Fall/Winter 2018.
This time around it is much more subdued. Gone are the loud over the top trashy prints of yesteryear. Now it is all about calm mellow tones, which makes it easy to pair. The print has been seen on the runways of Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford and Balenciaga, which all have used leopard and zebra print to showcase coats, dresses and pant/jacket combos. This will definitely be a statement piece, so it is best not to overwhelm it. Remember to pair it down and maybe skip the heels for some flats, that’ll really make it pop. This Guess Leopard Print Long Sleeve Shirt will be perfect to take it from office to party.
Never has covering-up been more popular hen now. Designers like Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen have traded skipper silhouettes for lower hemlines, higher necks and stockings. Perfect for the chilly months ahead. Tailoring is also part of this, with many designers adopting almost an 80’s-esqe style of tailoring. Long blazers and squared off shoulders. The Zara Green Floral Midi Dress encapsulates this trend perfectly with a loose silhouette and modest hemline.
The classic that never seems to go out of style. Marc Jacobs, Louis V and Mui Mui all played with this fall/winter trend. Not only is this fabric timeless, but it also gives a level of sophistication to your look. Tweed has been around for decades and never seems to go away, so adding this item into your closet is a real investment. Opt for the Darling London Elsa Retro Vintage Tweed Tunic Dress from our shop for your next outing and you’ll never regret it.
Check patterns have been all over the trends for the past couple of years. From the basic flannel to your not so basic boyfriend shirts, designers have welcomed this trend with open arms. Check was seen in the shows of Calvin Klein and Versace to name a few. Calvin Klein took a classic look, while Versace opted for the 90’s look a la Clueless.
