It’s the same every year. There is always a piece of clothing from yesterday that returns and is reborn on the fashion shows. And it’s no wonder. Some things stay forever. Clothing pieces such as the aviator jacket and the denim jacket are simply timeless. And even if one day someone invents another jacket that is better than both, they will still be worn there. In the following lines, we will present you some of the fashion pieces that will stay there forever, but also some novelties not to be missed this season..
Fashion 2018: the trends to follow this year
Denim, ruffles, suspenders, checks, asymmetrical cuts, light colors, pastel colors, sequins … These are just a part of the 2018 women’s fashion trends. The majority were already in fashion in previous years. New for 2018 are the reappearance of frills and asymmetrical cuts. As for the colors and patterns, they haven’t changed much.
Trendy colors this season
Each year Pantone announces the color or colors of the year. The year before it was green, this year it was blue. But also mustard yellow and we can see a return to pastel colors and the trendy color of 2015 – Marsala. Black and white are still as current as ever. According to statistics, the favorite color of the majority of French people is blue.
We also choose the colors according to the season. Some shades such as orange and brown go well with fall, while darker tones with winter. In spring, we rather choose colors such as blue, green, and finally anything that reminds us of spring. And in summer, we choose warm and energizing shades. This is of course a matter of choice. Some people will never wear an orange, while others love it. Everyone to his own tastes.
We all have favorite colors. It is no accident that you prefer a particular color. The choice of colors has been proven to form the basis of our state of mind. Each color carries an energy. But also, as famous fashion icon Coco Chanel said:
“The best color is the one that suits you”.
As we have already mentioned before, there are certain fashion pieces that will always be worn. We have tried to make a small list of those that reappear this year. Then, we will give you advice on how to choose the right outfit according to the morphology of your body and how to assume your style..
Fashion 2018: ldenim
Basically, denim was created for the manufacture of clothing for workers in factories. The first to introduce this tough fabric is Levi Strauss. And as it often happens, at some point, it is not clear why, the denim left the factories only to end up on the fashion shows a few years later. Today, many people have forgotten his origins and only vaguely remember this story. Can you imagine if we didn’t have jeans? Fashion without jeans, without jeans jacket, without jeans shorts or shirt… What a utopia !
Jeans are super comfortable and perfect for any occasion. You can wear them every day and every season. A few years ago, the most trendy model (and the most beautiful in our opinion) was the high-waisted one, in its mom and boyish version. Large models are also trendy. You choose your model according to the morphology of your body.
Flared jeans are back again! It’s retro, it’s chic, and it’s very comfortable to wear. You will find pretty models almost everywhere. We particularly liked the models from Asos. Our regular readers know that this online store is one of our favorites..
Fashion 2018: ruffled blouse and stylish flared jeans
Sequins: let it shine !
Very fashionable in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, sequins are back again. Blouse, t-shirt, pants, jacket, cardigan… Sequins, also known as sequins, have an evening and magic side. Make your day shine by opting for a sequined dress. You will feel like a princess. Finally, you can simply opt for a garment that shines, but does not necessarily have sequins. We found some examples below.
The set below is brilliant and has a very original futuristic side to it. Retro-futurism is in fashion !
Fashion 2018: transparency and futurism
According to fashionistas, anything transparent is all the rage this year. Here, too, you can feel the influence of science fiction. Look at what a gorgeous futuristic and ultra modern look:
For a successful futuristic look, choose light colors such as white, purple or blue and add shiny, silver and / or transparent elements..
Pastel colors are very fashionable this season.
They always were, in fashion and interior design. Pastel colors are expressive, yet understated. They can be combined with white, black, beige, brown or gray. The trendiest pastel color is arguably marsala.
Ruffles for a successful retro look
In the 1970s, ruffles were very popular. For several years, they were forgotten and put aside. Not long ago, we decided to wear them again. We like their retro English chic side. Shirt, rose, skirt, blouse with ruffles – the choice is yours.
Fashion 2018: a loose, relaxed and modern outfit
You don’t have to go to a wedding to wear a lace dress and so much the better. The laces are very feminine and soft. You can find beautiful models of dress, skirt or blouse in lace on the site of Asos.
Straps for a rebellious look
We love suspenders and you know why? Because they have a very cute boyish side. There are many ways they can be worn and it makes a great look. You can’t find any ?
“When I find a color darker than black, I’ll wear it. But until then, I’m wearing black! ” Coco Chanel
Black will always be chic and the little black dress will always be a classic. Coco Chanel said it a long time ago and here we are centuries past, black is still considered the most stylish choice. The best is that it really suits everyone and also has a slimming visual effect.
Some women choose black for its slimming effect, others because they find it super stylish. Wearing black is always a good idea, especially if you are going to a job interview or an important date..
Oversized, large, geometric, asymmetrical
The more comfortable you are in your clothes, the better. Slim jeans are still as current as in previous years, but they are giving way to oversized, large, mom and boyish jeans. Indeed, the key to an elegant look is to always buy clothes one size above your usual size. Oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts are also very current. Under the influence of Scandinavian design, we can also see the trend to wear clothes with geometric, voluminous or asymmetrical cuts.
An outfit entirely inspired by geometry and its shapes
Focus on 2018 fashion patterns
The trendy patterns are similar to those of the previous year. Under the influence of Scandinavian design, we choose geometric, abstract and minimalist patterns. For a year or two, floral designs were out of fashion. In 2018, they reappear in full force.
The more original the pattern, the better: elephant, giraffe, ice cream, candy, chocolate, vegetables, fruit… Really everything! Plus, wearing something a little childish makes you feel younger. Who said that only kids can wear giraffe or elephant clothes? Adults have the right too. And if that’s not your favorite kind of pattern, the square and the check are another current option right now..
The tiles are timeless. We love their retro English chic. What a stylish dress !
Stripes will always be on trend.
Fashion 2018 is androgynous, neither masculine nor feminine, but simply comfortable
In recent years, we often hear about “androgynous” fashion. But what does this mysterious term mean? Some of you already know it, others are still not sure. Well, this is neither a feminine nor a masculine look: in fashion and in hairstyle. Women wear their hair short and wear loose, comfortable clothes: a t-shirt and jeans, for example. While them wear their hair long and wear skinny jeans and a floral patterned t-shirt, for example.
Indeed, this style is very clean and neutral. This style is not new. It has its origins in the early 20th century when the term “boyish” was introduced for the first time. This is a girl who wore her hair short and looked like a boy.
In the 60s and 70s there was hippie fashion and hippies which introduced the famous hippie look which is still current today. Subsequently, there is a new fashion that appears, but which is not as well known as the previous ones: glam rock. Very fashionable in the 1970s in Great Britain, it was a movement of bands composed of men who dressed as women. The most famous celebrity associated with this style of fashion and music is David Bowie.
2018 fashion and style: two different worlds
Style is something that builds up, but cannot be bought or found unless you have a personal stylist. Some people are born with style, others don’t care at all. It doesn’t matter if you like fashion or not, it is important to look after your look and choose the appropriate clothes. Sometimes a simple t-shirt and jeans are enough to achieve a chic and comfortable look without overdoing it. We don’t say that clothes are the most important thing in the world, but since you wear them every day, it will be a shame to neglect them..
But what is the style ?
Style is often opposed to kitsch, but that’s not entirely true. Kitsch is more of a style in itself. For us, style is associated with what we call “class”: finding the right balance of all clothing elements without going overboard. And kitsch is usually when you combine more than three colors or patterns. Kitsch is the most difficult to balance style.
There is also another very important thing: not to try to imitate, but to try to create your own style. And to create your own style, you can always use inspiration, photos … This is also the idea of our article, you give inspiring fashion ideas that you can include in your outfit.
Fashion 2018: choose your outfit according to your body morphology
There is one outfit that you really want, but you are not sure it looks right on you. If you don’t feel comfortable with it, then it just isn’t right for you! We all have a unique morphology and that is also the charm of the world: we are so different from each other. Instead of saying to yourself “oh no I’m too fat, I have to lose weight so that I can wear this or that outfit”, try to accept your body as it is and show off your beauty! For example, if you have a rounded butt, choose a high-waisted pleated skirt or high-waisted boyish-style jeans..
If you are rather petite, then high waisted jeans are for you. And if you are very tall, opt for a long skirt. Finally, try to really highlight who you are and highlight what appeals to you and makes you feel good. And of course, always favor comfort !
