| By: Mae Johnson
FASHION FORECAST. From playful paint splatter prints by Oscar de la Renta to glittered retro by Coach, New York Fashion Week gave a preview of what's to come for spring and summer 2018. What’s in for spring 2018? We got you covered! The latest New York Fashion Week gave us a preview of what to expect six months down the road as we usher in spring and summer 2018. From Ulla Johnson’s ethereal pink dresses to Oscar dela Renta’s playful paint splatter print, there were a few expected forecasts and a handful of pleasant surprises at the New York Fashion Week. To help fashionistas stay ahead of the fashion game, here are style trends from recent runway shows to keep an eye on:
Ulla Johnson: Pink Passion
It’s near impossible to get through spring without a dose of pink passion. Designer Ulla Johnson, who once said she was inspired to create lightness amidst the lack of transparency in today’s world, just gave us a taste of what spring 2018 would look like in her “pretty in pink” dresses that are equally ethereal and romantic.
Jason Wu: Crystal Embellishment
Swarovski for spring and summer? Why not? Jason Wu’s interpretation of the upcoming season includes a dab of sparkle as he creatively combined interesting prints, pleats and patchworks with crystals. The final product? Gorgeous.
Oscar de la Renta: Paint Splatter
For summer and spring next year, don’t be surprised to see creative brush strokes at work, such as paint splatter prints debuted by Oscar de la Renta on the New York Fashion Week 2018 runway. Although Oscar de la Renta purists who are used to the late designer’s more modest and less whimsical aesthetics may argue against the print’s playfulness or may even call it “too youthful,” there’s no denying the print captures spring and summer’s carefree spirit.
Jill Stuart: Polka Dots
Are you seeing double? It could be because Jill Stuart came out with a stunning collection that includes eye-catching polka dots. The enduring print seems to come and go in the “what’s trending” list, but it’s apparent based on the designer’s collection that polka dots are going to make a fashion comeback next season.
Coach: Glittered Retro
Hello retro, we see you! At the recent New York Fashion Week, Coach stepped back in time with retro-inspired collections that harken back to the glory years of the 80s. Expect to see leather and silk bomber jackets for spring next year, clearly on full display on the New York Fashion Week runway as Coach paid homage to the iconic prints of artist Keith Haring, who gained fame in the 80s for his eye-catching public mural artworks. To give retro a fresh take, glitter was added because---as every fashionista already knows---everything is better with glitter.
Michael Kors: Island Vibe
Ready the Hawaiian punch, Michael Kors is already bringing in the island vibe. While this may not come as a surprise for summer next year, it’s always good to see the familiar floral print in aqua blue that evokes memories of the beach life. Shall we all say “aloha” as early as now?
Carolina Herrera: Statement Sleeves
When it comes to updating the classics, including the white button-up shirt, Carolina Herrera is giving sleeves the leg o’ mutton treatment. To reinvent familiar silhouettes, designers, including Herrera, were in agreement during the New York Fashion Week to give statement sleeves another try as they rolled out dresses and tops with mutton-designed sleeves.
Diane von Furstenberg: Handkerchief Hemlines
For spring and summer next year, hemlines are getting a fresh treatment. Diane von Furstenberg rethinks spring and summer’s flowy dresses with her handkerchief hemline dress in bold color blocks, of course! Which New York Fashion Week designs caught your eye? Are there any style trends you can't wait to wear as soon spring and summer 2018 roll in?
