Now that the Beast from the East is behind us, or so we hope, we can now focus on curating our spring/summer wardrobes which means that we need to dust off that SS18 trend report and get revising.
Commonly associated with grandmother garb, this pastel hue has pushed millenial pink aside so be prepared to see it take spring/summer by storm. Lilac dominated the catwalks all the way from Victoria Beckham to Tibi. If you’re still a little apprehensive about this one try opting for lilac on your top half and some indigo denim on your bottom half for a seamless modern transition.

Get ready to channel your inner Cher Horowitz because checks are back and better than ever. Checked skirts, shirts, trousers and jackets prevailed at Balenciaga. From picnic print gingham to classic tartan, there’s sure to be a print for everyone, and best of all you’re bound to already have some in your closet. Checkmate!
The one trend that you won’t mind getting caught out in the rain in. Calvin Klein and Chanel most certainly proved that plastic doesn’t have to look cheap. If you’re not feeling audacious enough to brave it in vinyl trousers then go for a transparent raincoat; it will keep you dry during those April showers and you’ll still get to show off that chic outfit underneath.
Usually only coveted throughout festival season, fringing definitely got an upgrade via the catwalk this year. Expect to wear it in more than just a crowded muddy field. Céline and Bottega Veneta demonstrated how the trend can put some extra sass and sway in your step. Look out for fringe detailing in your accessories for a more subtle nod to the trend.
Just because Christmas is long gone doesn’t mean that party season has to be over. The glitz and glam is here to stay as exhibited by Gucci and Marc Jacobs, so dig out those dancing shoes and get ready to plan lots of summer parties because this is one trend that you’ll want to make the most out of.
