how to wear 2018's fashion trends

I love the trends coming out of fashion week recently. A lot of what I'm seeing is happy, feminine, and colorful which is a welcome contrast to winter weather and the trends of seasons past that I didn't necessarily relate to. While I totally encourage everyone to dress boldly, here are a couple of ways to incorporate the year's trends into your everyday looks.


Because there are so many variations on these little bags, there is so much you can do with your look. If you usually go for a chill, neutral vibe, you could add some fun to your outfit with a bold bag. Or, in the case of the outfit above, use neutral colors and a variety of textures to build an outfit with depth, then add a classic black micro-bag that will work with everything you own.

White Boots

White boots are somehow both bold and minimalist, so there's a formula I like to use when styling them. To keep things classic and toned down, pair the white boots with a pair of medium-wash, high-waisted jeans and a simple, chunky gray sweater. To add a bit of texture and interest to balance out the sleek boot, try a pair tortoiseshell sunglasses in a bold frame.


You can add a beret to any look for a bit of interest, but if you're building the look around the beret, I like the idea of going for a feminine, storybook Parisian vibe. Try a textured cream sweater paired with a feminine skirt in black, navy, or dark hunter green. For texture and a bit of edge, pair with an over-the-knee boot in gray velvet or suede.

Ice-Cream Pastels

The ice-cream pastel trend is so pretty for spring but can be tricky to translate to an everyday look. If you're feeling bold, I love the idea of a monochromatic pastel look with a different colored coat. But for a more casual vibe, pair a white t-shirt with a pastel coat then add a pastel shoe in a different color. Pick one of the pastels and carry a bag in a non-pastel shade of that color. For instance, I took inspiration from the pastel green shoe and chose a dark green bag. Then, layer on some metallic accessories for more depth.

Statement Earrings

This is another trend that can be taken in so many different directions, but I decided to go for a sort-of minimalist, easy vibe with this look. I love a simple t-shirt with a monochromatic look on the bottom, preferably in a pastel but you could also do something like navy or dark green. To add depth, pick a sculptural, metallic statement earring.
