A new year deserves a new look. Revamp your attire by incorporating these trendy items into your wardrobe.
Slips and sheers
According to Caroline Grosso, contributor to W Magazine, slip dresses are back for 2018. Sheer fabric on skirts and coats is also predicted to be all the rage this year, says Elma Steyl on her personal style brand blog.
In the early months of the year, you’re tired of wearing the statement dresses you wore over the holiday season. Lauren Black, contributor to TheZoeyReport.com, recommends investing in a one-of-a-kind dress that flatters your body and skin tone. Whether it features a dramatic, cheery pattern or a fusion of different textures to add visual appeal, an original dress is a surefire way to recharge your wardrobe.
Both traditional and refreshed styles for trench coats are the peak of fashion for 2018, says Grosso. W Magazine depicts khaki colored, double-breasted trench coats with belts that cut a sleek profile, as well as a more adventurous multi-layered trench coat with the appearance of a cape.
Go with purple
The Pantone Color of the Year is Ultra Violet, a shade of purple, so you’ll definitely want to incorporate this hue into your wardrobe this year. Whichever shade you pick, make sure it complements your skin tone. For example, if you’re pale, go with a light lilac shade; if you’re tan, go with a more intense royal purple.
Retire your black and neutral heels and experiment with more vibrant shades, such as suede pink. Grosso suggests pairing these shoes with your more traditionally-hued work wardrobe or a casual t-shirt and jeans.
Pile on the purses this year, as well as your favorite tote bag. The bountiful handbag look is in for 2018, confirms Elma Steyl. Besides being in style, you’ll also have more room to store all of the personal items you want to bring with you when you’re away from home.
According to Hannah Lyons Powell, contributor to Glamour U.K., you can’t go wrong with skinny jeans paired with a striped shirt, a leather jacket and pumps. You should also invest in a sharp blazer for a professional, powerful look. Lauren Black with TheZoeyReport.com recommends a black velvet blazer.
Items with sequins and sparkles are also “in” this year. Whether it’s a slim-fitting pink dress with complementary colored sequin sleeves, as depicted on Elma Steyl’s website, or a shirt or pair of pants that includes this shimmery material, you’ll want to incorporate this trend into your 2018 wardrobe.
Socks and sandals
Pair your socks with your sandals this year to help rejuvenate your footwear. Patterned, frilly or sparkly socks paired with Mary Jane pumps look amazing, says Glamour UK.
From bold prints and sheer fabrics to layered bags and vibrant pumps, you’re bound to channel fresh energy when you dress yourself in 2018. Simply seek out these fashionable items to expand your clothing repertoire.
