The most Wearable Trends for the Year ahead – these Trends have just walked New York Fashion Week.

What coveted New York Fashion Week is what we see going forward in 2018.  These are the defining looks that will shape the racks next season.

There was a lot of suiting – sweet short suiting to bold, shimmering fabrics.  A great variety!

Here are some of the biggest takeaways and here are 7 key looks for you to indulge in and play with.


Modern Romance

Soft romantic florals with billowy sleeves and corseted waists. This feminine look was a heroine on the runways.


Lavender Takeover

One of the take-over colours was a soft lavender – this was shown on everything from sequined dresses to oversize knits and sharp suit sets.  Keep in mind the Pantone Colour of 2018 – Violet!

Day Glow

It’s not exactly look-at-me sequins but subtler ways of mixing sparkle in everyday silhouettes that make this trend so wearable. Look for shimmer on everything from T’s to flowing trousers. They shine even better in the sunshine, so start wearing them by day.

Take Flight

The jumpsuit is now a fashion staple, but for this year it’s getting a utilitarian twist. The updated silhouette takes its cues from the classic flight suit, though the prints and fabrications might not follow suit. Some are boxy and boyish, others fitted and dotted in florals — whatever the case, these are the one-piece wonders you’ll want to add to your repertoire next season.

Short Story

Short suit sets cropped up all over designers’ Spring ’18 runways, giving us a chic way to reinterpret one of Fall’s biggest trends. Don’t be fooled, though, these aren’t all short and sweet; some come with attitude that’s more street style star than lady who lunches.

Keeping it short and sweet, this is the summary and future of Fashion :

Everything aims towards feminine, certainly not frufru or frilly.  I’m loving it, I hope you are too.

I love your feedback, do drop me a line.

Until my next blog,
