New York Fashion Week may have come to a close, but we're still here to round up the latest trends that are bound to end up in your closet soon. Be warned, though, as Fall 2018 is not for the faint of heart—bold prints, bright hues, and glittery iterations are going to be your new essentials.
1. The '80s
Retro dressing is alive and well in 2018. But why the sudden obsession with anything sequined, electrically-hued, and in a boxy silhouette? Vogue EIC Anna Wintour herself explains, "That’s the moment when women first emerged in a real way into the workforce and they dominated with their big shoulders and bright colors."
2. Animal Prints
Trickling down from the '80s, animal spots and stripes are given a bold makeover—they come in bright hues that are meant to be worn by women who can't be tamed!
3. Red & Pink
Proving they work best when worn together, this color combo is a fashion faux pas no more. Red and pink combined brings a contemporary touch to your look, especially in luxe fabrics and tailored pieces.
Plaid is a tried-and-tested print that looks good no matter what season. But for Fall 2018, designers are calling for plaid-on-plaid to make this preppy print an even bolder statement.
Keep warm and opt for puffer coats, blankets, sweaters, even feathers fashioned into scarves to take your style game a notch higher. Pull it off by exuding the right amount of nonchalance and je ne sais quoi.
3.1 Phillip Lim
Are we seeing the birth of glamleisure on the runway? As designers continue to redefine what sporty chic means, we really think so. The requirement? Anything that shimmers and glitters!
We've grown to love pink, red, ultraviolet, and even yellow. But here's another hue that's convincing us to trade our neutrals for something bolder: orange. As demonstrated by Brandon Maxwell, Jeremy Scott, and Prabal Gurung, there's a way to wear the color without looking like a traffic cone.
8. Statement Tights
Maximalists, rejoice! Colorful and printed hosiery are back on the scene. Use them to spice up an all-black outfit, to dress up your denims, or to level up your florals. Whichever style you choose, they're bound to make your winter dressing a whole lot brighter.
