As a rather epic month of shows has finally drawn to a close, that means there’s been much reflection (read: chat) as to which trends to embrace and which trends which must be waved farewell to for the season ahead. Using some very non-scientific methods, we’ve come up with a fail-safe formula for picking your new styling tricks for SS18 greatness, based on what you were wearing last season. So, here goes…
SS18 TRENDS TO TRY NOW
By Caroline Ferry, March 13, 2018
FW17 to SS18 flats
FW17 to SS18 leather
The vibe last season was definitely for high-shine patent leather where possible, usually pants, and always worn in a loose, cool way. Spring is calling for something entirely different — buttery-soft leather jackets reign supreme in, wait for it, a rainbow of bright colorways. Aimee’s (Song of Style) is made even more perfect by keeping the whole look one-color. We’ll try if you do.
FW17 to SS18 boots
The resurgence of the '80s brought some absolute bangers last season, and the love for a white ankle boot was real. For a more timeless update, switch yours for simple leather knee-highs for SS18 which are a little bit '60s when Bella wears them, or so '70s when paired with a floral midi dress. Wear 'em now with jeans or in a few weeks time with all your new-season tea dresses.
FW17 to SS18 jackets
Gigi, like many of us, really embraced the double-denim feel of last season. But it doesn’t feel totally right for a more dressed-up vibe. The oversized suit jacket is your new wear-with-everything-savior. As great with jeans as they are with a flippy skirt and heels, consider your denim days just a little bit fancier now.
