They say trends come and go but style is forever. That is most certainly true. But there’s something about the new trends, whether you wear them or not, that you just can’t avoid. Soon the fashions that we have seen gracing the runways will have their fast fashion alternative and we will all these fashions on the high street. From ‘average size’ to plus size there are offerings for all of us. Save or splurge? What will your thought be on the top spring 2018 fashion trends?
Balloon Sleeve Tops
Chicwish Fun Twist Bubble Sleeve Top £36 / Comme des Garçons Bubble Sleeve Top £215
Balloon sleeve tops have been slowly creeping up on our social media feeds and on TV adverts. I have seen so many options, colours, and styles available but the gist of the trend is to wear tops with big and voluminous sleeves. It’s quite a versatile trend. The save option can be worn with skinny jeans and sandals and can become date night favourite. Whilst the splurge option can be partnered with a pencil skirt and sky-high stilettos perfect for the office.
V by Very Curve Biker Jacket £48 / Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket £1075 by Belstaff
Biker chic has been a very popular trend year in and year out so I would consider a good “biker” jacket more of a long-term investment. The trend is versatile as you can wear the shiny jacket trend in different colours or stick to a traditional colour and style. Pink or blue pastel shades scream feminine and flirty, but I also love your traditional black jacket. There’s something sexy and edgy about jeans, pumps, a pretty cami top and a leather (preferably pleather, thank you) jacket.
Pocket Fringed Skirt £35.99 / Oscar de la Renta Fringe Tweed Skirt £1210
There’s something very fun about all things fringe for me. The save option is a more boho look that is carnival ready and with pockets, well you can’t fault that. The romantic splurge option is a gorgeous and more demure look that would be gorgeous for high tea or a romantic date night. What do you think?
Shades of Ultra Violet
Purple has always been one of my favourite colours in all its shades, but ever since Pantone name Ultraviolet as it’s shade of 2018 I’ve seen it everywhere. These last 2 pairs of shoes are a bit impractical but gorgeous nonetheless! These have been some of the prettiest shoes I have seen in shades of purple, but whatever your footwear style there’s a lot of shoes, as well as accessories, in this stylish shade.
The key is that these Spring fashion trends can be adapted whatever your style is, and that’s something that I particularly like. One size fits all is not my style so the versatility of these trends is something that makes them a little bit more fun and that much more worth experimenting with.
