2018's Hottest Trends
Hello straight leg, goodbye skinny! Hello monogram print, goodbye understated elegance! Hello ultraviolet, goodbye millennial pink! These are just some of the trends we're hoping to nail this coming season! To be honest we'll be happy if we nail even just one of these trends... (have my fingers crossed for a pyjama trend, now that is something I can get behind)!
Monogram is back baby! Small baby bags as seen on the arms of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie many moons ago are creeping back into mainstream media. We're going to start minimalist with this one as we don't think we can quite nail it a la James Kavanagh. Click here to see James in our UGH-MAZING Gucci monogram jacket! Always ahead of the crowd!
Taking monogram to a whole new level with this Louis Vuitton black multi colour pochette. This bag gives us serious Sex & the City vibes!! These bags aren't in production at the moment so this is a real find!
If there's one bag and one iconic print in particular that's making a comeback it's this Dior navy monogram! You may recognise it from being on the arms of Bryan Boy, Leandra Medine & Susie Bubble. Theirs also come monogrammed with their own name over the print! (Maria Grazia Chiuri if you're reading, my name is Ciara and I would LOVE one too, thanks xoxo)
2. Street Wear
Effortlessly cool, effortlessly chic! There's been a shift from the glamorous, girly and dolled up look. Rather we're seeing movement towards a more laid back, relaxed style. Don't be fooled though, a lot of work goes into looking that cool! (I'm still desperately trying to find the balance between laid back and plain lazy).
Bum bags are the new cross body bags! All the New York and London cool street style kids are wearing them sideways to the front or back. We've styled this H&M x Masison Margiela bum bag with a Victoria Beckham military coat.
We love it styled here to the front with the simplicity of this Acne sweatshirt.
3. Ultra Violet
Ultra violet is Pantone's colour for 2018! I know what you're thinking, what do we do with all the millennial pink that we bought last year? Well, as you can see with this & Other Stories blouse and Halston Heritage skirt; the two colours are a match made in heaven!
Our advice is to have fun with the colour... I mean you only have 11 months until they announce their newest colour! SO make the best of it!! I mean who said colour blocking, prints and glitter is too much?!
4. Floaty Midi Dresses
Who said dresses are just for fawwwncy events? Not us, oh no! In fact according to the Sunday Time's Style magazine they're the new tracksuit! Comfy, oversized and look great dressed down with trainers and a jumper! Now this is one trend I'll try for sure!!
We styled these Lya Solis & Needle & Thread dresses with comfy casual wardrobe staples from Whistles and Zara. The trainers add an edgy and relaxed style while the Dior and Chanel bags bring the Siopaella je ne sais quoi.
5. Straight Leg Jeans
Forget your skinnies (I mean, I'm keeping mine so please don't tell the fashion police). But this season it's all about the straight legged, ankle crop, raw hem jean! We love pairing ours with a vintage shirt while flirting with a whisper of ankle! Seductive and sexy we know! ;)
Can we take a moment and see how well these trends go together! Birra straight leg jean, mixed with the coolest bum bag and the best monogram Dior.
This is a trend that's not even a trend anymore! To some people it's a way of living to others it's an adventure to find that piece they've always wanted. We decided to add it in here as with vintage it can be adapted and changed to suit whatever your mood, whatever the trend and whatever your style.
There is something memorising about a vintage Chanel bag. The gold is goldier (made up word, I know) and the CC turn lock is just that bit more bigger. We're in love! We've styled this Chanel Vintage bag with a faux fur Charlotte Simone scarf and Theory wool and cashmere coat.
Praise to the Vintage Gods for this textured coat of dreams. A truly one of a kind piece styled here with our fav Dior Mini Saddle bag and Siopaedit sunglasses.
