You know its a trend when you see more than one designer send down a similar theme. From bright and bold to pore 80’s vibes, we’re rounding up the hottest trends of 2018 (plus a few that just might surprise you.) Check back as we update our trend guide with more from London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks throughout the month as we continue to present the rising looks to know so far.
Colorful tights may feel like a dated trend from a time when we all tried to dress like Blair Waldorf, but an injection of colour is just what we need. Power clash like at Adam Selman, or choose the silvery options from Tom Ford and breathe new life into your look.
Technicolor Animal Print
We always treat leopard as a neutral, but why not opt for neon zebra instead? Get loud with rainbow-coloured animal prints cut in every silhouette. Animal prints are wilder and more colourful than ever for fall. Offered up in striking hues of neon at both R13 and Tom Ford, the classic leopard look is getting a throwback-inspired makeover that channels both the ’80s and early ’90s!
At the forefront of next season’s 1980s revival is the vibrant hue of magenta. Spotted as a focal point in a growing list of collections—from Alexander Wang to Cushnie et Ochs, Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Milly, and more—the striking colour is here to take the place as our new favourite shade of pink.
