Everything we see influences fashion to some degree and if you really get out of your comfort zone, you can easily incorporate these looks in your day to day outfits without any struggle.

Are you ready to be more fashion forward? Let’s revamp your wardrobe and explore what the fashion world has to offer in 2018!
1. Violet Hues
Purple, violet, and lavenders aren’t just meant for summer and spring. These colors are taking the pastel trend from earlier this year to a new level.
If you want to really soak in the biggest trends for 2018, you need to introduce some lavender into your life. By simply adding this hue into your wardrobe, you’ll brighten up your natural complexion and really stand out from the crowd in a big way.
The great thing about this trend is the fact that you don’t have to buy a lavender piece of clothing that looks a certain way, you can experiment with violets and other purple hues on any type of clothing that fits your personal style.
2. Darker Denims
Denim is a fashion staple that never gets old, it’s timeless. But there are trends within the denim world that do come and go with the years whether that’s the cut of the denim or in this case, the color.
Darker denims are making a comeback from the 90s where they thrived. Focused more on denim jumpsuits and jackets, if you add a sleek and tailored denim jacket to your wardrobe, you’ll really be making a statement that can be easily dressed up or down.
3. Sheer & Plastic
This trend is seriously from the future, 2018 that is! From jackets, shirts, bags, shoes, and pants, plastic made see-through clothing has changed in a big way.
You might have remembered seeing this trend earlier in 2017, but it was very simple then. The idea was there, but it looked out of place and not something easily worn to the office, or anywhere for that matter. But in 2018, this idea of plastic clothing has been refined and there are tons of options that will fit your personal style.
4. 60s Fringe & Feathers
If you’re looking for the most out there and flashy trend, you’re looking at it. Fringe and feathers are back and they’re better than ever. They provide a sense of drama and look fantastic for any night out or occasion. If you want to stand out you need to get your hands on a fringe skirt or feather lined jacket!
5. Contrasting Polka Dots
Bold polka dots are finally back in style. After being around in the early 90s, it was safe to say they would never come back in style, but surprisingly this fall and winter fashion season has been all about polka dots.
By adding some polka dots to your wardrobe you can easily add a bit of fun to your life. You can be extreme with huge dots or don’t have to be super bold! It’s up to you, but this versatile trend is one we love for 2018!
6. Trench Coats Are Finally In
Trench coats have always been considered a fashion staple, but for 2018 they’re playing a whole new game. With new cuts, colors, styles, and overall vibes of these garments we’ve seen on the runway, you can expect to be pushed out of your comfort zone.
For 2018, trench coats have had a revamp, there have been improvements and changes to this classic piece from almost every designer.
Plus with any design you choose, it is bound to complement most of your current wardrobe.
Even simply trying a bold color with a simple trench coat can instantly change your wardrobe. Try sticking to bold colors and playing with different textures to really make an impact on how you feel and your confidence. Reds, violets, greys, and dark greens are in style for 2018, explore a trench coat in this style and you might find something you love!
We suggest you snag a trench coat you love before it gets too warm! Be ahead of the style curve.
Following or keeping up with trends isn’t always for everyone. It can be too much to handle, because of how quickly they come and go. But when you add a small element of the current trends to your wardrobe now, you’ll instantly feel refreshed and confident without much effort.
Don’t be afraid to get out of your comfort zone. Fashion is all about exploring what makes you confident in yourself, don’t worry about what other people think. That also goes for those who feel like they don’t want to follow the trends. Just embrace your own style and have fun with it. Don’t overthink it too much and just enjoy the fun fashion can introduce to aspects of your life.
