Slightly Surprising Fashion Trends for 2018 

Now that the weather has finally turned and warmer, longer days are with us I know a lot of you will be out shopping. You will be throwing out or stowing away your winter clothes and buying new items to wear this spring and summer.  As a result, I thought now was a good time for a simple fashion roundup post. So, I decided to pick out some emerging trends and share them with you all. As you will see, for 2018, there are some quite surprising items available that have come back into fashion and been reworked in interesting ways.

The jumpsuit is back

One of the biggest surprises is the return of the jumpsuit. Designers have been trying to bring them back for a couple of years now, but it looks like they have finally succeeded, in 2018. 

Quite a few mainstream clothing shops have included a few in their collections. Fashion World is one of those retailers. They are stocking a wide range of jumpsuits and playsuits, this year. Their layered jumpsuits and playsuits are especially interesting because the way they are styled ensures that they are quite flattering. 

The original jumpsuits fitted quite snugly. As a result, virtually every bulge showed. Layered jumpsuits do not do that because the top half looks more like a blouse. It is still joined to the culottes or trousers but has a fringe or pelmet so it hangs slightly away from the body.

A lot of women avoid wearing playsuits and jumpsuits because they are not sure how to get the fit right. If that is stopping you from trying them, I suggest you take a look at this article. It explains how to choose the right one for your body shape and make sure that it fits comfortably.

Light and floaty layers

Layering is one of the biggest trends for spring/summer 2018. It is quite unusual to see people wearing layers during the hot weather. In the past, layering has always been an autumn or winter trend. This year, it appears that we will all be topping off strappy tops with lightweight see-through blouses overlaid with a light jacket or something similar. Floaty layered, ultra-feminine dresses are also set to make a bit of a comeback.

Pastels stay

the color palette for the warmer months is set to stay more or less the same as last year. Pastels are set to be very much in vogue.

Although for offices and other workplaces where formal attire is the norm, the colors will be darker. Right now, there are lots of blue women´s business suits appearing in stores.

Non-stretch denim

After over a decade of wearing stretch denim, we are all set to go old school and start wearing 100% cotton blue jeans again. It appears that there has been a bit of a backlash now that skinny jeans are no longer fashionable. It will be interesting if this particular trend actually takes hold. Stretch denim is very forgiving. It really helps to hold everything in and smooth out some of the bulges, so most people look better in it than they do in traditional denim.
