Move over Cupid, February was all about fashion with Fashion Week taking over New York, London, Milan and Paris. Designers, magazine editors, celebrities and TV personalities peppered star-studded front rows for a closer look at the latest trends parading down the runway. Vogue’s very own Anna Wintour even seemed to use the occasion for a new friendship with Rapper Cardi B during Alexander Wang’s New York show. From solid reds to leopard prints, from looser silhouettes to every iteration of the nineties’ windbreaker, and tulle like you’ve never seen it before, fashion trends of 2018 were loud and proud.
But what are the biggest fashion trends this new year?
That’s right the big, bold and oversized earrings have made a comeback. Even Pinterest, back in December of last year, knew the statement earring trend was going to be big in 2018. This thanks to over 200 million Pinners worldwide and a 947% increase in saves for “structured statement earrings.” Fashion Week 2018 boasted oversized earrings of all kinds, from shoulder-grazing sculptures to dangling masterpieces, by Valentino, Etro, Christopher Kane, Emporio Armani, Burberry and Topshop, just to name a few. For those of you who are thinking, “I can never wear statement earring, they’re too heavy” think again. With Leavears Earring Lifts, you can put on your favorite pair of massive post earrings for full support so you never have to worry about stretched piercings.
Seems like the one-piece trend is here to stay, but 2018 brings a modern twist to the beloved jumpsuit or its shorter version, the romper. This year, the fashion runways were filled with a boxier, looser, more boyish silhouette to them. Tod’s, Gucci, Sportmax and Public School all featured their versions on the jumpsuit. Sportswear even got in on the action with Dior, Fenty X Puma and Marc Jacobs versions of the athleisure jumpsuit.
Jeans are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe, so it’s no surprise high-fashion denim is in this year. Think embellished, bedazzled, embroidered or sequined. From Gucci to Alice + Olivia to Michael Kors, it’s intricate stitching, beaded details, and rhinestones everywhere no matter the jean cut.
