10 Spring ’18 Runway Trends You’ll Actually Want To Wear

After a style packed few weeks in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, Fashion month’s Spring ’18 has finally wrapped, and we can’t blame you for feeling a tad overwhelmed. Fear not, because we are here to distil the key trends you’ll be wearing next season.

With Calexico designers Ulla Johnson, Isabel Marant, Balmain, Helmut Lang, and more showing stunning collections, we’re counting down the stand-out trends to grace the runways this month. Ready your wardrobes, people!


1. Near Naked

Dreamy sheers, sultry skin, and clinically clear overcoats were everywhere this season. It’s all about transparency. Keep this trend wearable (and SFW) by pairing your sheer pieces with an ever-practical lace bralette.

2. Black + White

This classic duo is always on trend. Yessir, even polka dots and checks. Dior, Blumarine, and our Calexico designers Balmain, Helmut Lang breathed new life into your everyday go-to.

3. Seeing Red

The bright, sensual and sultry red graced the runways from NewYork to Paris. From orange based tones to blood reds, and the rise of traditional fashion faux pas, red and pink, this bold and brash colour, either on its own or styled to perfection, is set to make a statement. The easiest way to insert some rouge into your repertoire? A red heel.

4. Haute Denim

It’s time to forget your fear of the Canadian Tuxedo… designer denim-on-denim is in. Keep this look modern by pairing shades of denim in the same wash colour-family.

5. The New Millennial Pink

Lavender is back! This romantic yet sophisticated shade is undoubtedly going to give millennial pink a run for its money this season.

6. Pencil It In

This fifties’ basic is making a modern comeback. Fashion God Karl Lagerfeld and others have revisited this secretary staple, making the work-day essential chic once more. Pair yours back with a simple logo tee.

7. High Femme

Lace, micro florals, and ruffles-upon-ruffles took the romance up a notch this season. Calexico favourites Ulla Johnson and Isabel Marant kept the look from becoming too saccharine  with unexpected footwear and fresh cuts.

8. It’s A Draw

Designers embraced the utilitarian drawstring, with hem, waist and neckline cinching all over the runways. Take a more feminine approach to this typically sporty street style touch, by incorporating this unexpected element into evening dresses, blouses, and coats.

9. Fanny Pack

This much-loved micro accessory was the unexpected hero accessory of Spring ’18, with the likes of Gucci, Zimmermann, Alexander Wang, and Marc Jacob breathing fresh air into the under-appreciated, yet highly practical, fanny pack. This much maligned accessory has a fresh feel worn at the waist or slung over the shoulder.

10. All White

White continues to dominate collections, with the likes of Isabel Marant, Ulla Johnson, and Jonathan Simkhai showing all-white looks. This season white is fresh and feminine with eyelets and ruffles lending the colour a quiet romance.
