'60s Floral Prints
Unlike the overused phrase "Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking," the print actually feels fresh again for 2018. That's thanks to designers drawing from the '60s designs, which are characterized by dramatic colors and large buds. Look out for this print and try mixing it with checks for something completely unexpected.
For the ladies who live in their jumpsuits or rompers, we have good news for you. This one-and-done staple is coming back in full force next year with a utilitarian twist. The new silhouette draws inspiration from the classic flight suit and comes in boxy and boyish styles that have the perfect slouchy quality.
Let statement-making jewelry do all the talking come 2018. You'll feel a hint of the '80s thanks to oversize earrings and layered necklaces that seem to make accessorizing fun again. Whatever you do, skip the more delicate pieces in favor of bolder options.
Chanel did it best with its PVC-themed Spring '18 runway show. Everything from boots to coats received the clear treatment and looked wearable to us. If you're hesitant to try the trend, go easy first with a heel or bag.
Glitter and sequins are usually reserved for nighttime festivities, but we're here to tell you they're perfectly fine for daytime wear too. Let the natural light reflect off a shimmery skirt or top because there's no better way to stand out. Plus, now you don't have to worry about changing out of your 9-to-5 look.
We're looking for the next It bag, and we found it with fisherman totes. Fashion houses have transformed the mundane netting material into stylish carry-alls for your essentials. These bags will definitely be the catch of the day come 2018.
