Here’s to hoping the end is in sight of all the cold wet weather we have been having recently. So to get in a cheery mood I’ve been browsing online at what the “experts” predict to be the key fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2018. You may remember last year when I discussed the Winter fashion trends and how it was all chunky knits and a 70’s vibe. This Summer we are heading back to the 80’s!
Being an 80’s kid it was all about shell suits, frizzy permed hair and Back to the Future. In fact looking back now it was a fun decade of disco pop, neon colours, shoulder pads and leg warmers. It was great being an 80’s child! Oh and not forgetting the bum bag! I used to keep my white Sony Walkman in mine!
This forthcoming season we will see lots of wide shoulder and sleeves, alongside trouser suits and flats. I’m all for flat shoes, much more comfy! There is also a trend appearing for floral tea style 1950’s inspired dresses, which is perfect for hotter days in the Summer as well as the jersey and maxi style dresses.
Think nipped waists, strong shoulders, long, lean legs, pastel shades and trench coats. This is what all the models were wearing on the catwalk. Accessories were the bum bags or belt bags and waist belts.
While browsing a lot of online fashion sites I have seen many mention the comeback of pencil skirts for this forthcoming season. As well as gingham and plaid designs and the carrying on of the polka dot theme.
The return of the 80’s fashion style wouldn’t be complete without the bright neon colours and bold hues. This Spring expect to see vibrant pinks, reds, yellows and more worn in monochrome blocks. Plus the one key clothing item that seems to be on everyone’s list is the yellow dress. Shops have already seen spikes in sales of bright yellow dresses!
