What dresses we will wear this 2018? The trends for this year suggest various styles, colors and patterns. With a constant thread: a nostalgic penchant for vintage styles. Like the pretty 50s style dresses worn by Saoirse Ronan in Brooklyn, or the patterns sported by Duchess Sarah Ferguson in the 80s. A strong-hued déjà-vu with a few pastel tones. Dresses have become a staple for many during the warmer months. Not only do dresses allow your skin to breathe (which is key when there's heat and humidity), but they're versatile, too, as celebrity stylist Molly Dickson pointed out.
The latest denim trends make up a huge part of any cool girl's wardrobe. From the newest skinny jeans that A-listers, influencers and street style gurus are choosing to the runway's coolest denim trends edited by our fashion team. It's no secret that denim hits high on our list of must-have pieces. I tend to slip into a pair of jeans nearly every day of the week. In the last year alone, I've put a number of silhouettes to the test. Cropped flares? Yep. Vintage-inspired straight-leg jeans? They were pretty much the only thing I wore all summer. And with a brand-new season on the horizon, what denim trends can we expect to see in 2018?
From light to dark washes and mini to midi lengths, denim skirts are a must-have staple for spring. Consider them the perfect piece to swap out your skinny jeans with. Plus, denim skirts are versatile enough to wear with your favorite booties and crisp white button-down for a timeless office look. You can even wear one with sneakers and a chunky cardigan for an easy weekend outfit. Denim skirts are also perfect for all those upcoming spring break plans you’ve got in the works, as the material makes for the perfect wrinkle-free travel companion.

The last time you wore a denim dress was probably in 1997, and it was probably just a weird version of overalls, and you probably paired it with a sun hat a la the Olsen twins or Tia and Tamara Mowry. In short, it didn’t look great. But denim dresses are back—and they’re chic as hell. This beautiful garment comes in so many styles, colors, lengths and cuts, you just can't imagine. That's why it's so important to see the best ideas and find your favorites.
For many of us, warmer weather means a switch to more casual outfits. We still want to look fashionable, though — and layering is one of the best ways to add style to any basic outfit, whatever the season. We're huge fans here of the classic women's denim jacket as an essential layering piece. Worn over a dress or shorts, a jean jacket can elevate your summer outfit, without sacrificing its easy, breezy vibe. On cool summer nights, a denim jacket also makes a great, cozy top layer, whether you're dressing for a date, or going out with girlfriends. Here are our favorite ways to wear a jean jacket this summer, inspired by street style fashion.
There will be a day sometime this year, that is so freezing cold you're forced out of a chic, body-skimming coat and into something warm and cozy. Many such coats can look sleeping bag-ish, but this season there's a change afoot: Some of the most stylish, sophisticated coats we've seen are actually warm, cozy down. High-street puffer jackets are all the rage at the moment, with many fashionistas and it-girls wearing them 24/7. Nothing, in fact, is synonymous with the winter season more than the puffer jacket. Since not knowing how to wear the puffer jacket right is often seen as a deterrent not to buy one, I have compiled a street style collection of the best puffer coats and jackets for women of the moment, without forgetting to add a few useful style tips and tricks for you to don them the fashionable way.
Is it too much to suggest that fashion's search for a retail panacea has led it to the most literal manifestation of a solution: superhero capes? Probably. But how else should one read the runes of the autumn/winter 2018 catwalks when there are capes everywhere you look? Milan and London offered numerous takes on the sleek silhouette, from opera-ready jacquard at Erdem, to body-swamping leather at Alberta Ferretti, with a load of leopard print (thank you, Dolce & Gabbana) in between. (Special mention must go, too, to the cape toppers at Fendi, little choux-like puffers that sat on top of regular camel coats.)
I mapped the coat trends and styles that will be hot in 2018. The coats are a highly-functional wardrobe staple — you've got to stay warm — so it's worth buying a winter coat that you're going to love wearing all season. I've rounded up the top women's coat fashion trends of the year, from wallpaper prints to shearling and everything in between, so you can look your very best all season long. The showcased styles you will definitely want to try this year.
It's easy to overlook the quiet charms of a penny-plain white shirt. Sober, sophisticated, it's the ideal distillation of the grown-up mood at the heart of this season's style - and the perfect antidote to summer's pom-pom-festooned, look-at-me beachwear. That doesn't mean it has to feel unimaginative. Seek out couture-like silhouettes (a tonic for workaday cotton) and pair with long, lean tailoring. Cue your easy, breezy summer wardrobe solution - and six ways to wear it now.
