2018 Style Trends That Look Set to Last

When it comes to fashion, this year has been pretty interesting so far. We've seen some quite radical new styles suddenly appear in the shops, most of which will disappear almost overnight of course, but there are a few style changes that are likely to roll over into the autumn (so the summer sales are a perfect time to pick up a bargain or two). Here are a few examples of the styles you'll see me wearing into AW 2018.

White footwear 
As you can see here white shoes are very popular this year. You can buy everything from casual white crocs to formal white court shoes. The last time white shoes were this popular was in the 80s when the trend lasted pretty much the whole decade and everyone was wearing white ankle boots during the autumn months. I picked up a pair last spring and bloody love them... I'll definitely be taking them into September and beyond and wearing them with little sixties shift dresses while it's still warm enough to have bare legs!

Baggier jeans and trousers 
After what feels like an ETERNITY, skinny jeans finally seem to be on their way out and it feels kind of weird to be wearing looser cuts, again. But, HELLO COMFORT! I'm mad about my mom jeans and am so happy that the trend of wearing looser fitting jeans and trousers is set to continue into the colder months. Right now, the tapered look is in, but you more and more retailers are also offering more straight cut jeans. Who knows, by this time next year we may even be back to wearing flares ;) (and that really WOULD make me happy!)

ALL HAIL THE JUMPSUIT! It's taken a while, but jumpsuits do seem to have finally broken through and there are hundreds available in the shops (and in the sales!). People may disagree with me but I think jumpsuits are super practical. You may have to get half naked in order to go to the loo but you can just throw them on without having to think about matching tops and bottoms plus, when made from the right material, your spring / summer ones will last into the new season. This article explains how to choose a cut that is most likely to suit your body type. I've amassed quite a collection over the course of the last year and have tailored ones, MC Hammer style ones and even cut out ones (great if you love the two piece trend but want to hide your mum tum like me!)

Skirts instead of trousers 
This year, most designers have included more skirts in their collections. The warmer weather means that they have been well received and widely worn. So, the skirt is well and truly back on most women’s must-have list. It will be interesting to see what happens when the weather starts to get cooler. Provided it does not get too cold the chances are we will still want to wear our skirts. Denim and chino style skirts are warm enough to wear during the autumn months.

Glittery shoes 
I'm loving the sparkly sandals available everywhere right now. As you can see here, I was lucky enough to pick up a beautiful pair and this style of glamorous footwear is perfect for a festive party later in the year too. I'm hoping stores will be selling more glittery boots and other styles come autumn too!
