Trend Preview 2018

Nicholas Strelitz Fashion Editor Expresso By Nicholas Strelitz

With the Big 4 fashion weeks coming imminently – in February – let’s make some predictions now and see if we were right.  If 2017 taught us anything, it was that austere minimalism was out and replaced with all the way glitz and glamour.  What does 2018 have in-store for us? Here are my 5 trend predictions for the year ahead. 

1. Mashed up prints are the new shocking pink

This coming spring, pink will still be going strong, but we’ll see a new trend emerging too: Ultra-clashing prints in a range of bright colours. Seen at Marni.

2. Cargo pants are the new denims

Denim has seen a slowdown in recent months as 2017 absolutely worked everything out of them that it could.  Denim was everywhere.  And now, there’s a new pant in town – loose comfortable cargo pants in camouflage, khaki, and army green.  They’ve been spotted everywhere from the Sacai runway show to Vogue offices to celebrities like Kaia Gerber.  This is the pant of 2018.

3. The return of the scrunchie

If dad hats were the trend for 2017, the scrunchie is about to take its place as the head accessory. Seen in Balenciaga’s and Mansur Gavriel’s recent collections.

4. The micro purse

2017 was the year of the fanny pack and this year we’re going even smaller.  Introducing the world’s smallest purse.  Rihanna, who started the 2017 fanny pack trend, has been seen around Barbados carrying a Jacquemus’s petite purse. So small you can barely fit a credit card in.
