2018 Spring/Summer Trends

It’s that time of year again. The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and the temperature is rising. But the change in season doesn’t just bring the sun, it brings a whole new wardrobe (or we wish it did). As always, certain trends never die: floral prints, ruffles, and pastel colors are still alive and well. Today I focus on a handful of fashion moments that are new and fun.

Checkered print is normally associated with the autumn/winter season, but your more colorful pieces can be transitioned to Spring. A suit set would make the greatest statement, or for a more subtle approach try pairing the print with solids. My favorite way to wear this look is in the shade yellow – total Clueless vibes. Lulu’s, Missguided, and ASOS have wonderful options.

Every Spring we know to expect pastel colors, but this year we also get to incorporate bright and bold shades! This trend is about a rainbow of hues, more specifically think of a children’s rainbow comprised of a Crayola box set. No, I’m not kidding. Crayola colors are in! My favorite crayon of the season is red as it exudes confidence and sexiness. I actually gasped when I saw these Jeffery Campbell shoes for $98, then cried when my size was sold out. Luckily, For Love and Lemons  and Lioness have the cutest dresses and tops to scratch my itch.

Remember the fanny pack? Did you ever think you would see it again? Well it’s back and it’s rebranded with a new name – a belt bag. Out with the cheap and ugly, in with the expensive and … cute? I’ve fallen in love with so many luxury belt bags like this Prada one. Besides the fact that it’s hella expensive, I would not suggest splurging on this.  Many stores offer cute and affordable options, because, well, it’s a fanny pack. Try Zara, Urban Outfitters, or River Island.

Fashion has adapted with the times and we see more skin now then ever. Take for example, @badgalriri who rocks the sheer trend day in and day out.

Let’s take a moment to praise a true style queen.

Although the idea of sheer clothing may automatically make you feel naked, there are other ways to adapt this trend. My favorite is through a raincoat. This BCBG one is to die for, fairy princess and badass all in one? YES PLEASE. For a more casual vibe, try Zara or Topshop!

Lastly, I saved the best for last, my favorite 2018 trend is the sportswear/racing stripes vibe. The outfits I selected here feature TommyXGigi, Puma, and Fila. Unfortunately I missed the PumaXFenty release back on March 15 and have been paying the price. I am OBSESSED with the collection so if anyone knows where I can grab some of the iconic pieces please let me know in the comments!

  1. I wish new season brought new wardrobe to me, but the only thing it brings are my last years clothes, which I truely hate. I just never have time to replace it, I guess I have to shift towards ordering online, cause going to a shopping centre is literally like a nightmare to me 🙂 I love floweres on prints and pastel colour so I’m glad these stayed. And also the trench coat which is a never ending story really, my mom has had hers for nearly 30 years, and it’s still rocking.
