What to Wear? Spring 2018
Spring is officially here! With new seasons comes a fresh new fashion trend from the runway you’ll be sure to be inspired by. From star spangled stripe colors seen on the runway by Calvin Klein and Raf Simons to embroidered button-ups and cowboy boots. Tie it all together with a bold bandana, channeling your inner American outlaw look. Saturated Bright colors Like Generation Z Yellow, has taken over the world of fashion. Designers like Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs heavily favors bold hues of hot pink, electric greens and striking oranges. These loud colors are especially impactful when done monochromatically, like with a sharp blazer and a clean, tailored pants.
Pastel colors for spring? Groundbreaking! While bright colors are certainly having their moment, pastel colors have made an impact on the runway like watercolor paint onto fine paper. London Fashion Week designers turned down the saturation to muted lilacs, powdery blues and soft baby pinks. Victoria Beckham, and Michael Kors, favored these airy colors with both light fabrics with more constructed pieces.
80s Throwback brings a blast from the past. The nineties has had reigned supreme in fashion for quite some time, but it looks like the decade of grunge will be sharing the spotlight with its predecessor- the 80s. Silhouettes and balloon sleeves could be seen far and wide at Stella McCartney and Balmain during Paris Fashion Week, giving rise to the 80s revival. Shoulder pads, poufy skirts and anything acid wash are all great options for those daring enough to take on this fabulous trend.
The basic classic sunglasses, step aside! Take on the warmer temperature long days of spring with glasses that can make a statement. With Gigi Hadid collaborating with Vogue to release her own unique sunglass line and along other notable fashion figures like Acne Studios and Marco de Vincenzo dishing out retro mod frames alike, girls everywhere will be rocking those wicked cat eyes and edgy rectangular eyewear. Use your specs to add a fun pop of color to your look, or pair it with an accessory such as a shrunken fanny pack.
