With 2017 coming to an end, it’s time to start planning for everything to come in the new year! There’s been some amazing LEWKS and you know what they say, everything gets better with time, so 2018 is about to take the game to the next level. To bring in the new year and new season, I’ve pulled together a compilation of some trends that I’m currently loving, and that I also believe we’ll be seeing plenty of in 2018.
ASIAN INFLUENCED PRINTS, PATTERNS, & SILHOUETTES
Lately I have been totally obsessed with everything Asian-inspired. From the high mock-neck dresses and buttons, to the wild colors and prints, I have totally fallen in love. Not only am I obsessed, but it seems the rest of the blogosphere is, as well. Brands, starting at H&M and all the way up to Gucci are starting to usher in a new wave of culture influenced pieces.

PAJAMAS IN PUBLIC
Now, as much as I love a good street-ready outfit, sometimes it’s just impossible to convince myself to roll out of bed and put on a fresh change of clothes. Well, readers, in 2018 you won’t have to! Kidding, but there is some truth to that to an extent. The biggest way we’ll be seeing this trend in the new year is in simple silhouettes, silky fabrics, and probably half tucked into a sick pair of matching trousers.

STYLE WITH A STATEMENT
And by that, I mean a literal statement. Off-White has made wearable words the new black, and I have a strong feeling that this trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon in 2018, so break out your best vocabulary-clad pieces and hit the streets in style.

LOUD FLORALS & CLASHING PATTERNS
I don’t know if it’s just because everyone is longing for the Spring/Summer season to roll around, or if we’re all just now realizing that florals are SO underrated, but this pattern is coming back into fashion with a vengeance. I’ve seen loads of street style shots featuring loud florals, clashing colors and prints, and playing with pushing the limit, and we’d better get used to it.

WOMEN OWNING MENSWEAR
This is probably the trend that I’ve been rocking the most recently, and the trend that I think will lead us head-on into the new year without a trace of hesitancy. This trend is fearless, empowering, and it turns masculine structures into an exoskeleton of hard core girl power. Look out for blazers, yes, WITH the shoulder-pads, and tailored suits.
