Can we please all agree on one thing? That style wise the year 2018 is such a rich and controversial year? This year brought many flashbacks from the past that we never thought would see again…I’m still a little torn between the biker shorts or is it the belt bag…oh wait there’s also neon!! Meanwhile there are other classier trends that are on their way to becoming classics…the flowy skirt perhaps? Feel free to disagree!! Let’s have a roundup of the style-defining moments of 2018 ….
1 || Power Suits
The power suit made a huge comeback this year with different iterations. Short suits, skirt suits, oversized suits …you name it! The only constant factor was the fact that they’re all monochrome.
2 || Flowy Skirt
The flowy skirt made a massive come back this year. Femininity and versatility at its best; skirts that swish were paired with shirts, sweatshirts, and sneakers.
3 || The Return Of The Saddle Bag
Dior’s iconic saddle bag made a monumental return this year… and even if you weren’t into them the first time around, I bet you couldn’t resist them now.
4 || Animal Print Everything
Animal prints of all kinds became THE thing to define 2018. Though they never completely go out of style but now they almost feel like a new neutral!
5 || Fanny Packs
Or belt bags or whatever name you’d like to call them, going hands-free has been the most practical trend this year. Would this last into the coming year however? Probably not… but they definitely had a good run.
6 || Neon
A major throw back trend from the 90s to make a return this year was the neon craze, thanks to Prada.
7 || Biker Shorts
Made legal by Kim Kardashian, this summer saw a resurgence of the biker shorts trend in unexpected ways. They were worn with blazers, dresses, sandals, knee high boots and they looked surprisingly good!
8 || Clear Bags
Invisible plastic bags are probably one of the major handbag trends of this year. However, it all depends on character. I am not one to flaunt my possessions in a see-all carry-all but who am I to judge!
9 || Oversize It
We’ve also seen an oversizing trend of almost everything. From coats to blazers to puffers to scarves…. the bigger the better and the trendier it is.
10 || Prints
Prints were in abundance this year; floral, polka dot, logo mania or the scarf print… these are but a few of our favourite things. You could even wear print on print or clashing prints and your style would still be on point!
