How many of you are just like me? I laugh out loud when I see some of the weirder fashion trends on the runway. For example, the plastic trend for Spring 2018. How do they expect a real woman to wear those pieces in their real life? I have to say, many of the new trends on the runway every year could go wrong if we regular people try to simply copy them. Let’s face it, most of us don’t have a super model body and lifestyle. Something could look really cool on a young model, but make us look like someone’s grandma. Although I am a grandma, I don’t want to look like one. 😉
So here I am translating the outlandish and wildly expensive clothes seen on the runways of Paris and Milan into a look that us real women want to wear on a date, or to Sunday brunch with our girlfriends. I like working with timeless pieces to create a unique, of-the-moment piece to express my own personality and fashion views.
There are four key trends for 2018 in this outfit:
If you ask me which trend will never go out of fashion in the Spring, my answer will be pastel colors. After a cold and gray winter, human beings are just naturally eager to see some soft colors. Softer pastels and dusty tones represent the romantic shades popping up at nearly every show this year. Look for lilac, pink, lemon or duck egg blue. These pretty, yet delicate, colors can be powerful and make for an amazing statement.
A trench coat is just the most iconic piece for Spring. In 2018, or I should say every year, actually, there was a trench coat on almost every important runway we could think of. They were worn with everything from bikinis to boardroom attire. A well made trench coat certainly should be on your investment list. 😉
A see-through statement red carpet dress is probably not so practical for most of us, but we can integrate this trend in a sophisticated way in our daily life. For example, the lace sheer trench coat I am wearing here.
I have to be honest with you, I didn’t see this trend coming back this quickly. Usually it takes at least 10 years, or more, for a trend to come back, but this one is an exception. Now I am regretting getting rid of my fringe skirt. 😉
Fringe made its way in all forms this season into the industry, so there’s a look for every level of commitment. We have seen it swishing across necklines, hemlines, bags… you name it. For all practical purposes, you can pick a fringe dress like mine, or a skirt. Make sure to look into some new ways to feature this trend, for example: a shredded tee, or statement earrings.
Ok, I hope this article will give you some insight into translating the spring trends of 2018 to your own fantastic style. Happy creating!
