Please note that these are just GENERAL guidelines. They certainly don’t apply to everyone.
Is fashion art? An answer to that eternal question was once offered by Pierre Bergé, who said: “fashion is not art, but it needs an artist to create it”. But that didn’t stop Miuccia Prada from collaborating with no less than eight illustrators to take inspiration from comics, nor Rei Kawakubo from applying paintings by Guiseppe Arcimboldo and multidimensional graffiti to her sculptural volumes. And as for Donatella Versace, she reprinted Andy Warhol works and pop art Vogue covers all over her outfits to give the 90s look a fantasy twist. In this article, I want to talk about pop art fashion influence on modern collections, you are about to see stunning prints and colors that can be worn in real life.

My personal favorite trend of the season is the infamous fanny pack! Yes, I know you are all cringing at the thought of neon colored pouches resting in front of your crotch. But never fear, because 2018 has brought a whole new look for the fanny pack to keep all your valuables secured to your body.
The 1980s fashion is back in a big way. That's why fashionistas all over the world are bringing the puff sleeves back. Personally, whenever I hear the word "puff" attached to anything (especially sleeves), I think of Drew Barrymore's shiny pink prom dress in Never Been Kissed. But fear not—this is not 2018's plan. The street style crowd isn't wearing billowing bubblegum-pink tinfoil just yet, but rather shirts and dresses with dramatic oversized shoulders and sleeves. When said silhouettes are voluminous at the top and cuffed at the wrist, it's technically called a leg-of-mutton sleeve. And it's technically one of the few '80s trends I can imagine wearing.
Today you gonna find out how you should wear the off-shoulder dresses trend in 2018. With a hint of the Bohemian about it, the current off-the-shoulder trend is one of the hottest looks this season and there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t join in. The off-the-shoulder dress looks endlessly versatile and extremely popular. Modern hobo-style designs are hugely popular, especially in the mini-dress, and there are lots to choose from. At first, baring our shoulders felt like a throwback to another time, but now, it’s so trendy and seen so often that it has started to feel more modern and fresh. Off-the-shoulder dresses are flirty, cute, and really versatile, and I kind of think it’s a trend that’s going to stick around for a decent amount of time. So why not embrace it?
In today's article, we are about to find out the most flattering street style ideas on how to wear wrap dresses this year. Wrap dress was first designed by Elsa Schiaparelli in the 1930s, and Claire McCardell in the 1940s (who called her version the "popover"), the silhouette hit peak popularity in the mid-to-late '70s, when Diane von Furstenberg introduced a knee-length, printed jersey version as something flattering, but also sexually liberating. Designers are still showing amazing variations of the wrap dress.
Lace as we know it probably originated in the sixteenth century, although fine nets were swishing around for centuries before that. Needles or bobbins spun silky threads in dreamy colors for the adornment of modish outfits of the day. Ever since then, we’ve been looking for new ways to wear lace, and 2018 is no different. Lace dresses are often either conservative or coquettish, but these strike a lovely balance. Think Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (can’t you see her in the green one?), not the Queen Mother. Playful colors counter the naughtiness of the lace, creating a sexy attitude that’s anything but stodgy.
