For a preview of the upcoming season’s trends, look no further than the Fashion Week shows in London, Milan, Paris and New York. For Spring 2018, we got a glimpse of fashion designers’ fresh takes on different styles — from pastels to plastic — that will surely shape everyone’s spring closets.

01 Fringe

Making a surprise comeback this spring, the celebratory element made clothes livelier and more dynamic on the runways. The new iterations of fringe provide a festive, playful look, yet retain a sophisticated appeal.

02 Sequins

Glitter is proving to be prevalent this 2018 — whether through makeup or clothing, everyone is finding ways of mixing sequins and sparkle into their everyday looks. On the runway, sequins shimmered and added a vibrant twist to the outfits.

03 Pastels

This spring, expect to see a softer approach to colors with pastels and dusty tones. From lilac to duck egg blue, clothes were given a more feminine and dreamy feel as models floated on the catwalks.

04 Sheer

Transparency was the predominant trend in during the runway shows. The intrinsic lightness and fluidity of sheer, skin-revealing fabrics elevated silhouettes and provided diaphanous dresses with an elegant, whimsical allure.

05 Lavender

Lavender is expected to be the next big color takeover, replacing millennial pink. Shades of lavender turned knits, dresses, and even formal wear into softer-looking ensembles.

06 Plaid

Forget your go-to florals, this pattern play is the superior print headliner this season. Designers reinterpreted plaid to give it a more mature, chic look.

07 Denim

Denim was given the high fashion treatment, as the material took the form of jackets, skirts, and even suits. Tailored for a simple, daily elegance, expect the resurgence of dark denim in your wardrobe for spring.
