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.
