Translating the catwalk’s most wanted looks to your everyday wardrobe can be tricky. So here is my one-stop cheat sheet, for the Spring season’s most coveted looks. From botanical prints to contemporary tailoring, here’s how to bring in a new season refresh to your closet.
Statement Shirts: The staple cotton shirt receives a directional makeover for spring/summer 2018. Designers were seen experimenting with dipped hems, asymmetric hemlines and sash belts to upgrade the essential cotton shirt. The reworked shirt look is cool rather than corporate and a new spring go-to. Try wearing with wide-leg jeans, or opt for a nonchalant feel with a sporty cross-body bag, as seen at Eudon Choi.
Contrasting Stripes and Checks: Want to keep things interesting this spring? Try clashing staple checks and stripes for an idiosyncratic look. Contrasting checks with stripes is a thoroughly modern look for spring. Take your inspiration from the Céline runway with a block-striped top tucked into a plaid maxi skirt. Find your ideal mismatch and wear all season.
Urban Jungle: The usual florals for spring? Not this year! Instead channel the heat of the tropics combined with exotic prints instead. Wear head-to-foot for maximum impact or dip a toe into the new season wilderness with a printed skirt. To make the most of this spring print move on, style with a sports-luxe hoodie and ankle boots for spring, then block-heeled mules as the weather warms up.
Loose Tailoring: Fashion’s love affair with relaxed tailoring continues into spring/summer 2018, making this your cue to invest in a chic suit. Keep your silhouette contemporary with soft fluid pieces, such as a long-line jacket or wide-leg trousers, and wear slightly oversized for that effortless feel and look. Dress this style down with a white tee and take it into the weekend with the addition of faded denim.
Long Lengths: The chicest silhouette this season is long and luxurious. Finishing touches such as pie-crust collars, balloon sleeves and asymmetric hemlines add interest to long flowing fabrics. Complete the look with tonal court shoes or add trainers for off-duty cool. This intriguing spring 2018 trend is certainly one to guarantee a sweeping statement.
