AW '18 STYLE EDIT
Paris, London, New York… with so many fashion shows and so many looks it’s easy to be left feeling overwhelmed by all the breathtaking designs on offer this season. But you’ve got better things to do than stress about how to add these new season trends to your wardrobe, so we’ve put together six style edits featuring all the latest looks.
Too much snake was never enough on the runway this season. From Isabel Marant's snake trousers to the knee length boots at Zimmerman, the leopards and zebra’s were pushed aside in favour of this print. If nothing else, its constant appearance in the 2018 shows was a reminder of how versatile snakeskin can be. We love it styled in our accessories rather than making a big statement with apparel. Channel your inner Bianca Jagger in a lace mini dress with snake boots and our Ash Clutch.
Want to make like the stars? Then it’s time to inject your wardrobe with some high-shine metallics.
Without doubt the easiest way to embrace this trend is with a new handbag, so ditch your trusty black carryall in favour of something silver, but don’t go overboard on shine as no one wants to look like a disco ball. Let the Nicole Crystal Mesh Shoulder Bag do the talking with just a touch of silver in your dress and stilettos.
Sequins are back! Whether you opt for a fun mini or full-length drama, make sure to keep your beauty look minimal so as not to venture into overkill territory.
Chainmail tops, shimmering skirts and dresses designed for the dance floor were everywhere on the runway. Team a solid gold dress with black heels and our Camilla Acrylic Clutch and you’ll be turning heads all night long.
Quilting was taken to new glamorous heights at the Fashion Shows this season. Jackets were taken out of their usual casual context and worn with stilettos and big jewellery. Quilted bags featured in luxurious velvet teamed with the another big 80’s trend…. the power suit. We love this pairing in unexpected colour combinations such as the Tibi Suit, Gianvito Rossi Leopard Heels and Emerald Hope Bag above.
One of the most exciting textures to grace the runway this season was fringing. It’s time to channel your inner-flapper-girl and play up this fun detail.
Fringed hems added whimsical charm to classic silhouettes, creating an element of fun. Some designers went even further with entirely fringe-based dresses and skirts reminiscent of Gatsby-esque frocks.
Ascent the look with fringing on your bag too by teaming the Kate Tassel Shoulder Bag with Alice McCall’s Surrealist Dress and Alexandra Birmen’s Clarita Heels.
While last year was all about of the oversized bell sleeve, 2018 seems to be pulling them back in (at the wrist). Cocoon sleeves dominated runways, offering the same fun and drama of a billowy sleeve but with a more refined wrist.
We have a feeling this trend is set to stay as a welcome change to the sweeping sleeves and off-the-shoulder tops of 2017. The perfect accessory for a dramatic sleeve? Our new Izzy Ruffle Clutch!
