For the fashion forward now is the time to start thinking of updating your wardrobe for Spring and Summer but you may be wondering what the key trends are for this season? The catwalks were dominated by several recurring themes and opting for these looks is one way that you can bring your look bang up to date. So take your pick from pleats, floral prints, 70s style or lace as these were the main themes seen on the catwalk for 2018 Spring Summer.
Pleats were seen on dresses and skirts in many of the Spring Summer 2018 designer collections and this is a really feminine look that is easier to wear than you would think. Simple pleating is the way forward to avoid looking too fussy or adding bulk to your hips and these pleated dresses look great when paired with some ballerina flats or peep toe pumps. For daytime wear dress the look down with a slouchy handbag and a cropped jacket for a more casual look.
Prints were seen on the catwalk this season as they so often are for the Spring Summer collections. The usual nautical stripes and animal prints remain strong however this season’s most popular print is the floral. Blooms were seen everywhere from big 70s style flowers to smaller sprigs – perfect for Spring. The look can be chic and feminine or more bohemian with floral maxi dresses being very popular this season. Keep accessories plain and simple when wearing florals to avoid a look that clashes too much.
One of the hottest looks on the Spring Summer 2018 catwalks was the 70′s theme. This was seen everywhere and includes culottes, jumpsuits, flared jeans and crochet fabrics, however if this doesn’t sound like you, you can make a nod towards the 70s decade with one of the much more wearable maxi dresses this summer. Maxi dresses are perfect for summer holidays and warmer weather, as they are comfortable to wear and feel light and airy. A maxi dress will also update your look because it fits in perfectly with the boho chic theme that was popular on this season’s catwalks.
The final trend, lace, has been around for some time but was still a strong look on the catwalks for Spring Summer 2018. Lace dresses make for a great evening look and the good news is that lace appeared on the catwalks in a variety of colors for this season with bright and bold pink and red lace dresses being popular. Whether you choose to go long or short, fitted or more flowing, with lace you can be sure of a dramatic and sophisticated evening look.
