FRIEND OR UNFOLLOW? SPRING 2018 TRENDS
Fringe and tulle and mixed prints, oh my! Spring is upon us and fashionistas are ready to bloom in style. This year, New York Fashion Week sparked new trends for the fashion savvy to embark on. From classic Americana to pastel anoraks, which trend is getting you sprung?
Spring/summer will be sheer as ever this year. The transparent look is trending for the fashionistas ready to be seen (and seen through!), whether it’s layers of tulle on a flirty skirt or a sheer shirt dress that calls attention to your chic high waisted bottoms.
Step aside, florals! This year we are seeing a spike in the multi patterned look. Whether it’s a funky cat print mixed with a neutral plaid, this trend is ideal if you’re feeling creative and playful! If you’re unsure where to start, begin the base of your #ootd with a cohesive color scheme to avoid extreme clashing. Think monochromatic with a dynamic use of patterns like stripes and polka dots, as seen here on Emma Stone.
Come rain or shine, anoraks are in style no matter the weather this spring season. Runways have been adorned with an array of anoraks ranging from bold shaded patent to utilitarian chic. Practical, lightweight, and an essential for every rainy day wardrobe, anoraks are the weather friendly athleisure trend here to stay.
A timeless, spring inspired trend, pastel hues are the color scheme to covet this season. From baby yellow to blush, pastels are always a refreshing pop of color to incorporate into your wardrobe. Also labeled “ice cream colors” by Harpers Bazaar, this sweet trend has limitless options when it comes to how to apply it to your outfits or accessories.
