When it comes to Fashion week, I find myself watching and enjoying the New York Fashion shows the most. Sure I’ll watch the occasional London Fashion show (mainly topshop and Burberry are my favourite) but there’s something authentic and original when it to comes to NYFW and it was nothing but colourful for SS18. There were bursts of vibrant pink, hues of yellow lemons and a happy bowl of bright orange that seemed to be the colour palette for many designers. From pops of colour, to glitter, hues of brown you name it SS18 has everything you need to get all excited for summer again. There were power suits, short bustier crop tops and strappy details to name a few. Now lets take a closer look at those all important trends to come and my favourite show yet!
Trend One: Everything’s Yellow!
Yellow seemed to be everywhere. Bursts of the bursting vibrant colour seemed to lend itself from catwalk to catwalk. Yellow trousers to dresses to tops, yellow seemed to be the colour that designers simply couldn’t get enough off. Simon Miller presented yellow jackets as well as tops. Carolina Herrera presented a number of deep yellow dresses that seemed perfect to take away on that wanderlust holiday we have been lusting after. If you are looking for any colour next season, make it yellow!
Trend Two: The Bra Top Everyone Can Wear
Wearing your pyjamas as outer wear was 2017 and I personally couldn’t get enough of it. But 2018 is all bout wearing your underwear as outer wear. Yup that’e right, your bralet will hit the SS18 trend with a sexy yet elegant feel. Tom Ford showcased a bra under a powerful should suiting which turned the bralet into somewhat a respectable item! There were denim fabrications of the bralet (Opening Ceremony did this sooo good!) and then there was Helmut Lang who presented a variety of colourful bralets to suit anyone and everyone. Get ready to see this trend take off and if you thought, you could never wear this trend, you will be surprised at how easy and good it is!
Trend Three: Give Me All The Straps
Well SS18 looks set to be nothing but strap happy, which makes me happy! Michael Kors showcased cuffs of the prettiest cotton streamer shirts (this look was my favourite from his show). Monse showed that skirts and dresses had up’ed their game with fringes of straps falling to calf length which bounced with every model step along the runway! I think this trend will be the hardest to try and incorporate into your daily wear, but I cant wait to see what the high street will bring!
It’s the show I always set my alarm to watch and look at, The ROW, and Mary Kate and Ashley have done it again. Their label The ROW showcased a romantic and soft side that was toned right down compared to many of the other designers for SS18. A lot of button downs, ribbed tanks combined with tan palazzo trousers was one of my favourite looks. Everything from this collection was ready to wear and easy for the likes of me and you to wear! There were tons of coats on shows, dusters of the muted colour palette which I have found myself leaning more towards of. For me their collection never fails, however I do feel they played a little more on the safe side and would have been amazing to see a little edge bought to the brand.
