So fellow Cincinnista’s, I’ve blogged and and even been featured on TV about what’s hot in Interior Design for 2018, but now let’s talk about personal style and fashion. It’s always true that what is trending in interior design and overall design transcends itself in to fashion and visa versa.
After much research here are my top 7 trends for 2018!
-Shine and gloss: From metallics to now actual yes, vinyl, glossy pants and tops, anything shimmery (well almost) is in. Just make sure to not let your entire outfit be a reflective sign and mix and match the wow pieces with the more subdued.
-Mixed prints. Again, we want to be careful of not becoming a fashion “mine field” , but the juxtaposition of different prints is very current. Don’t be afraid to mix those plaid jeans with an embroidered top for example if the colors work together.
-Fringe: While I’m a bit of a bohemian haute couture dresser myself on my casual days, fringe is still in! From sweaters to handbags, the 70’s are still with us. Just a little moderation ladies!
-Nineties Influences: Ugh sorry ladies, I’m not advocating Alexa Carrington’s oversized should pads, but the windbreaker and “bomber style” jackets have come back but in a with more sophisticated and interesting materials.
-Haute Demin: While demin will never go out of style, it’s time to leave your Levi’s and get more creative. Many of us older Cincinnistas aren’t into the distressed, holely look but what about zippers and contrasting panels of focus? Sounds kind of fun to me!
-Utilitarian and Camo style clothing. While I still treasure the army green and lace Veronica Beard jacket I got on big time sale this summer, this look isn’t going away. Camo themed sweaters to pants with utilitarian outside military pockets are all over the run ways for the spring.
So cheers and Happy New Year and check out some of these looks!
