Leopard print is back, with a twist. S/S18 catwalks saw leopard print accessories such as scarves, with a slash of sky blue or bright pink, paired with a classic nude trench. Layers of Zebra print were clashing with red trousers, and sequins. This new take on prints is bold and full of attitude. Make this look wearable by adding a pair of printed ankle boots, or a small scarf to your everyday work outfit.
Birds of Paradise
Moschino catwalks were covered in bright feather skirts, flared over bare legs with black rocker boots and branded Moschino belts. These vibrant pieces are a daring statement, and wouldn’t go amiss on a night out. The high street provides many smaller scale versions of this look, as well as t-shirts with feather appliques.
Chanel, Ralph Lauren and Zara all sported transparent rain macs, heeled boots and headwear. The idea is to showcase the outfit underneath whilst keeping dry, say goodbye to bulky coats that mask the silhouette. Wear with a figure hugging black outfit and step out into the rain.
Leather jackets will always be a wardrobe staple, although each season has it’s own version of the piece, as well as each designer. This year, Leather comes studded, and paired with more feminine pieces underneath. Although, not your traditional punk jacket-floral dress combo; 2018 is the year of the block colour flared skirt, in pastel, coupled with a cropped, studded leather jacket.
Think Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and any other 90’s teen fantasy/horror show. Mesh dresses, mesh sleeves and mesh skirts have made yet another fashion comeback. However, the mesh panel look of last year is no where to be seen.
Black is the New Black
Sometimes sticking with simplicity works best. Versace showcased some beautiful black suits, dresses and coats with sleek hair and polished make-up. This look works for the city, the office, the evening and the date.
Silk printed co-ords with classic, Italian style prints add some class to the S/S18 collections. Think tailored trousers with a flowing blouse in the same print. This look is perfect for the summer with minimal accessories and a tan bag.
Rainbow knits and tribal patterns are perfect for temperamental weather paired with white trousers or even jeans.
Flower print becomes 3D-the catwalk was ruled by models wearing dresses that resembled giant flowers, one Moschino model even donned what looked like a giant flower ball over the upper half of her body. How they kept a straight face walking down the runway, I will never know. Don’t worry you don’t need to dress like an extra from a kid’s school play, the high street offers pieces with 3D flower appliques instead.
