Spring is here, and with a new season comes my favorite time of year: Spring Cleaning! It’s out with the old and in with the new as everyone can get rid of those clothes they have had forever and stock up on some new wardrobe items. However, as we know, the fashion world is constantly moving and changing, so it is time to take a look at some of the biggest trends of 2018, as seen during the four-week period of February, famously known as Fashion Month.
What’s Old is New Again
Classic prints by high fashion designers, such as the Burberry check, Chanel interlocking C’s and Tommy Hilfiger Flags were big in the street style of fashion month. In addition, the 80s made a huge presence on the runway, where it was all about big shoulders and tight waists. Models like Kaia Gerber hit the runway in 80s inspired outfits and, while I am not so sure how I feel about this trend returning, I know there will be plenty of people excited about the return of these styles and silhouettes.
Florals are a spring trend that never really go out of style. The feminine appeal of florals works on every article of clothing, from a floral print dress or top to even jeans with printed florals. Specifically, vintage florals are on the rise. At fashion week there were a lot of looks sporting floral patterns resembling fashion from the 50s. Personally, I find floral pieces to be extremely flattering and the perfect touch for spring.
The Fanny Pack
Making a huge comeback are fanny packs, which are becoming increasingly popular for events such as music festivals and summer parties. Celebrities at Coachella are often seen making good use of this trend and Kendall Jenner has been seen taking to the streets sporting her own fanny pack. Fanny packs are convenient, easy and nearly impossible to lose, so I am all for the return of this particular trend.
Pastels, Specifically Yellow
Pastel is another trend that I tend to stray away from as I feel like an Easter basket when I wear very bright pastels. In addition, I have never owned one article of yellow clothing, but the recent pastel designs on the runway give me hope for the trend. Brands such as Calvin Klein, Emilia Wickstead and Tibi are all getting on board and have put out some flirty pastel pieces this past fashion month.
