Trend: The Layer Look
Nonchalant and urban: The layer look is back. Courageous fashionistas can combine various materials. Marina Rinaldi shows how it works and lets her models wear a crochet top over a business shirt. Anna Scholz has just the right thing for beginners: A long military dress with jeans in matching colours …
This year the athleisure trend will reach its climax. Inspired by track pants there are casual cloth pants with a lateral stripe. Combined with sneakers or high heels this trend reminds of the sporty styles of the 80s.
Trend: Denim all over!
Whether denim top with denim culotte like Ashley Graham wears it or just denim jumpsuit … “Birds of a feather flock together”. Especially popular on the runways: dark denim. Dark denim because of it’s dark and intense colour that comes from an extra dark dye or various dying processes. In contrast to the used look (which is still fashionable, don’t worry) dark denim has a very clean chic and is visually unobtrusive.
There’s no way around this trend in 2018! Whether tulle, mesh or lace … Transparency is a very important topic in everyday wear as well as evening fashion. Wonderfully combinable in layer looks.
Trend: Pink and red
Besides the trend colour “ultra violet” designers also seem to have a love for the pantone red shades “chili oils” and “cherry tomato”. And there is also good news for pink lovers. Although the colour has had its zenith in 2017 it will also remain this summer. Whether soft pink, fuchsia or bright pink combined with red … Everything is allowed. But watch out! Jewellery should be avoided with these colour combinations. It may seem cluttered and your look doesn’t work anymore.
Trend: All black
The classic combination gets new popularity. Whether in daily life or for special occasions: Deep black is visually unobtrusive and puts the focus on the cut and contour of the outfit. This colour combination especially works with transparent elements, hip frills or sporty contrast applications. If you feel like this trend is a bit too boring for you try a combination with glossy vinyl trousers. Those are very popular among high fashion designers and are just the right thing for courageous fashionistas.
Trends: Stripes’n stripes
Brightly coloured stripes, please! This time the focus is on vertical stripes that make the silhouette appear slimmer. Whether completely urban as casual shirt dress or as a feminine skirt … This trend is perfect for summer and already puts you in a good mood.
