The Top 5 Trends of Spring 2018 Runways
Fashion never rests. While we’re just beginning to break out our booties and fall sweaters, it’s never too early to start looking to spring. As a whirlwind fashion month winds down, we’re giving you a sneak peek at the Spring 2018 runways and what trends you can expect to see in your closet come next year.
Dior // Tom Ford // Dior
Sequins popped up on runways from Dior to Versace, including at Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton and Valentino. Whether styled for day, like the casual but glam daytime looks sent down runways at Valentino and Dior, or full-on nighttime glam, like the barely there mini-dresses at Tom Ford, we’re all for the idea of rocking sequins 24 hours a day.
Of course, no show made a bigger sequin splash than Versace, where Donatella paid homage to her late brother Gianni on the 20th anniversary of his death with a collection pulled straight from the archives. The finale? Five of the 90s biggest supermodels, Cindy, Naomi, Helena, Claudia and Carla, strutting down the runway with Donatella in gold sequined gowns fit for any red carpet.
Prada // Maison Margiela // Christian Dior
Bustiers layered over floaty dresses, tees, and everything in between gave runways including Maison Margiela, Prada and Dior a 90s grunge vibe that we’re digging. The feather bejeweled leather bustiers at Margiela layered over sheath dresses are giving us all the outfit inspo. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s corseted tulle maxi dresses over shorts are a standout look from the Dior runway that we’re dying to recreate.
Tom Ford // Tom Ford // Saint Laurent
We love a statement blazer; a truly great one can elevate any look and add the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Whether you’re dressing up a pair of jeans or dressing down a flirty little dress, statement blazers are truly the workhorse of any wardrobe. Tom Ford doubled down on the trend by sending blazers down the runways on almost half of his looks. (And we need every. Single. One.) Prada, Saint Laurent, Max Mara, Fendi, Celine, Miu Miu and more sent statement toppers down their own runways, making this closet staple even more important come spring 2018.
Loewe // Valentino // Max Mara
We know, we know, florals for spring aren’t necessarily “groundbreaking,” but this season, designers have found ways to breathe new life into the classic trend by mixing florals and adding a Victorian twist. The florals of 2018 are smaller, daintier prints, paired with clashing prints and floaty silhouettes.
Tom Ford // Valentino // Max Mara
Move over, millenial pink, there’s a new shade in town. Lavender exploded on runways including Valentino, Tom Ford, and Max Mara. We love the soft shade for spring and styling head-to-toe in lilac? A totally new take on the monochromatic trend that pops up every few seasons. We’re sort of obsessed with Valentino’s feminine take on sporty athleisure.
