2018 fashion trends: Bigger is better
The biggest trend of 2018, is just that: big.
“Extreme volume is a huge trend we’ll see throughout 2018,” Shannon Schafer, the senior fashion director at Nordstrom, says. “Oversized statement sleeves, voluminous skirts, and full pants are must-haves this season.”
In addition to the aforementioned items, Schafer says shoppers can also expect to find a number of throwback styles that are inspired by a memorable — sartorially speaking — decade.
“There’s also a fashionable nod to the power dressing of the ’80s taking place through strong-shoulder blazers and match-set suits, which feels especially appropriate,” she says.
A monochromatic pantsuit that plays with volume, such as a tailored top and oversized trousers is a stylish place to start when it comes to spring 2018 trends. Really want to up the style factor? Schafer suggests eschewing the traditional blacks and greys of staple suiting pieces and instead embracing colour.
“Impact brights will energize wardrobes this year,” she says. “We’ll see sun-drenched yellow, vibrant orange and bold blue, to name a few.”
And, while the Pantone Colour of the Year is officially Ultra Violet, style insiders (Schafer included!) are declaring it’s a softer iteration of the colour, lavender, that’s being billed as the new pink.
“Don’t be afraid to wear it head to toe,” she advises of the pastel hue.
