The Biggest Fall/Winter Street Style Trends 2018 to Follow – One of the best parts of attending a fashion week is to look around and check out the street style trends. The ones who were lucky enough to get invited to these exclusive shows always seek to be on fleek for the cameras. And who can blame them? We’d do the same if we were them. Well, thanks to these fashionistas, one can get an idea of the street style trends for the seasons to come. Scroll down and tell us your favourite.
Keep the Rain Away
Buckets of rain gave New York women an excuse to rip the tags off the PVC hats, totes, and boots from Chanel’s Spring 2018 collection. Clear plastic trenches were popular, too; armed with one of those, you almost don’t need an umbrella at all—and everyone will still be able to see your outfit underneath. Street style gold.
Sceptical of the flashy logos you’re seeing on the runways? Us, too. But you can’t go wrong with heritage logos and motifs, like Fendi’s interlocking F’s, Burberry’s classic Nova check and ’80s crest, and Coach’s stacked C’s. All of these made appearances on the streets, along with canvas Gucci G’s and a few Tommy Hilfiger flags.
Ace Your Leg Game
Animal Prints Everywhere
Leopard coats have been a street style mainstay for years now, and designers like Victoria Beckham, Raf Simons, and Tom Ford put them on the runway this season, too. On the streets, the look has evolved into head-to-toe animal spots and stripes—they’re better mixed together—from leopard slips to zebra-striped pants and men’s tiger coats. Think of them as your new neutrals.
Pastels with a Twist
Is winter pastels an oxymoron? A few years ago, pale mint and lavender might have felt toothache-sweet in the middle of February. But in 2018, we’re seeing Easter-egg shades everywhere, from powder blue to chiffon yellow and Creamsicle orange. On a puffer, they’re unexpected; on thigh-high boots, they’re downright subversive. Women are reclaiming these “girly” colours at a time when head-to-toe black doesn’t feel quite right; find your new favourite shade in the slideshow here.
Like pastels, florals are no longer reserved for spring. In fact, we have a new theory: As the weather gets colder and greyer, your florals should get brighter. Most of the prints we saw on the streets this season were super-vivid, graphics, and even neon. If you’re not sure where to invest in the trend, we suggest a floral coat like the Prada and Miu Miu ones above.
The Snowy-White Pants
Consider the old adage about not wearing white pants after Labor Day officially dead. This season, white trousers became a key ingredient in the fashion-girl uniform, whether they were skinny or flared, denim or silk. It’s a look very much in Phoebe Philo’s image, so maybe her departure from Céline has something to do with it. Just don’t spill!
Who would have guessed Donatella Versace would devote an entire collection to London in the ’80s, complete with neon plaid skirt suits and argyle socks? Certainly not the New Yorkers who wore clashing plaid skirts, plaid-intarsia’d furs, and boxy checked suits weeks before the Versace show in Milan. Some editors are feeling Cher Horowitz in Clueless vibes, while others are more into the post-punk thing; either way, it feels like a reaction to all of the menswear tweeds and neutral plaids of seasons past.
The Rainbow’s Otherside
Christopher Bailey’s final Burberry show is already iconic. From the Pride-inspired rainbow puffers and knits to the brand’s large donation to LGBTQ+ organizations, the feel-good moment may have just inspired us to wear every colour of the rainbow for the rest of the month. On the streets, we found looks across the ROYGBIV spectrum, including sequined rainbow pants and glittering Lurex dresses.
