Sequins and glitter are going to be brightly popular this year. Expect to see them as embellished accents on a plain white tee or as a full head-to-toe glistening pants suit. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with this fashion and style trend, we recommend the rule of balance. The last thing you want to look like is a 70s disco ball. Add a hint of sparkle here and there and dabble rather than blinding the world with a million shiny things.

Fringing

Music festival vibes seem to somehow reawaken the fringing fashion and style trend. This year, designers have given the recycled trend new life and our Australian lifestyle welcomes this fresh change. Overall, it has been revamped so think sophisticated fringing on modern silhouettes and clean cuts.

Checks

Checks will be the new stripe trend in Australia in 2018. This fashion and style trend will be taking over our wardrobes. It’s going to be a very popular print that we’ll probably want to retire within the next 12 months, but for now, lets enjoy the square patterns in an array of colourways.

Faux Fur

We love a little faux fur particularly when they’re turning heads in bold and daring colours. This season, expect to see them as accents on bags, shoes, accessories, collars, cuffs and more. And you know we’ll be wearing them all winter long. Think faux fur oversized coats and vests.

Sheer

We’ve seen plenty of sheer fashion over the past few years, and to our surprise designers still can’t let it go. We’re obsessed with the fresh take on transparency. It seems to have a more sophisticated feel where sheer plays delicately against feminine and ladylike silhouettes.

Plastic

If it’s plastic, we’re sure as hell hoping it’s waterproof. We’ll literally be raincoat ready at the second with this trend. Unfortunately, plastic is a daring trend in itself so we’re undecided as to how many style lovers will keep this fashion and style trend alive due to it’s unconventional level of comfort and practicality?

Pastels

Sugary sweet, ice-cream colours of pastel hues are coming to our fashion scene to bring us some whimsical life this season.
