My Favorite Looks from the Spring 2018 Runway

With that crisp Spring weather right around the corner, it’s time to reboot your wardrobe for the new season! As always take each trend with a grain of salt and remember that trends are fun, but style is forever. Dressing for you never goes out of style (read my full thoughts here).

Here are a few emerging #SpringTrends that I cannot wait to get my hands on…

Tulle & Ruffles

There’s never a better moment to breakout the feminine feels than Spring. #Ruffles and #Tulle seem to mimic the light, crisp weather of the season, but this year they are being taken to a new level. Coupled with an emerging trend for full-bodied silhouettes brace yourselves for mountains of tulle a la a reimagined Carrie Bradshaw tutu.

Sequins & Disco

Sparkles, sequins, metallic fabrics, it’s the perfect way to be the star of any room you walk into. I particularly love Tom Ford’s metallic style throughout his entire collection. It’s boldness is paired with sharp stilettos and strong shoulders silhouettes to give the full collection an empowering feeling.

Fringe

Two of my favorite style decades: 20s & 70s are having a major moment this Spring. #Fringe that’s short and fluffed, long with a swing, and everything in between was shown this year. I can’t tell what I love more, Saint Laurent’s chick-inspired mini-dress, or Bottega Veneta’s 70s meet 20s, long-fringed, shift dress. When in doubt, get both?

Full-Bodied Silhouettes

This trend may seem like it’s going to stay couture (eg. Junya Watanabe’s flower power dress), but I feel like we’ll see more of this in the style of Valentino’s softly silhouetted bubble dress. Think tulip skirts or strong shoulders. And before you run in fear of the 80s, remember that when when done like Rick Owen’s stunning a-symmetrical shouldered dress, strong shoulders can be an excellent balance for #pearshape women!

Transparency

The trend that speaks for itself. A less daring direction? The classic transparent beach cover up can always be a fall back!

Matchy-Matchy

Easy, breezy, one choice style is always a number one for me. Why do you think dresses out number skirts in my closet 10 to 1? Chanel’s use of matchy-matchy style is nothing new, but they’ve definitely refreshed their entire line-up, thanks to the amazing eye of Karl Lagerfeld, to brought it up to the 21st century with a modern, cropped moto jacket and matching jean-inspired skirt.
