2018 Spring Trends

I have been trying to come up with a creative way to talk about NYFW street style trends. Which got me thinking about the main goal of street style. It probably means different things to different people. But to me, it’s one of the major sources of inspiration. Because what was once unattainable on the runway shows, is now walking down 5th avenue. The importance of street style in my life is how related it makes me feel.

There’s so much to take from what I saw, and mere pictures would not do it justice. That’s why I decided to create this short video to show you how you too can style pieces you already have at home. Never forget to make the look your own with a pair of earrings, an unexpected shoe or just a messy hair-do. Having that said, the 2018 spring trends spotted on the streets of New York are:

Loads of red.

Head-to-toe. You may be tired of reading this, but red is the new black. If before, people were just wearing it here and there, now it’s in your face. I’m don’t necessarily go for an all look red, but definitely bet on details here and there.

Pastel mania.

Oh the pastels. I saw pink, blue, yellow, green and, the winning color of the season, lilac. And even wore myself some baby blue. Every spring, there’s a clear tendency for these colors, but this year it was extreme and beautiful.

Oversized knits over mid-length skirts.

This was one of the most spotted trends on the streets. I rushed to do the same and wore my most oversized knit over my polka dot skirt. When it comes to knits, the more oversized, the better.

Teddy and sneaks.

There’s not one particular reason for crashing these two together, but there was also an abundance of teddy bear coats (see my shopping guide here) and sneakers. Case in point. Which I think it’s a great representation of how chill fashion weeks are becoming. Put your cocktail dresses away, and send them sneakers.

Suit and plaid mania.

By now we should all be familiarized with this. But plaid suits, suits and plaid are spreading like a virus. See here, here, here, here, here, and everywhere. It’s glorious to see how fashion has become such an array of contrasts and styles mixed all together. But if I have to pick an era that this season focused on, would definitely be the 80’s. And need I say more? It was one of the best we’ve had so far. Let’s go back to that.
