Accessories are the cherry on top of the fashion sundae, and friends don’t let friends leave the house without them! Accessories complete an outfit by pulling it together, and it’s always fun to mix and match! Let’s take a look at which new trends will be hitting the shelves in 2018, and which ones will be continuing on from 2017.
“Life is too short to wear boring jewelry,” a smart woman once said. We couldn’t agree more. Say goodbye to big, bold pendant necklaces. It’s all about the shapes and tassels. That’s right, geometric shapes are in…triangles, dainty circles, bar necklaces, etc. Want to add a little splash a color? Check out some bright tassel earrings to pair with a neutral color scheme from your favorite Mobile fashion boutique. After all, bright colors will be very trendy this spring.
Invisible shoes began to make an appearance in 2017, but the “naked” shoe trend will be hitting the shelves this spring, as popularized by designers Alexander Wang and Oscar de la Renta, You’ll be seeing more traditional styles of these shoes (like clear straps) as well as shoes with more of an artistic flare; clear heel blocks, wedges, even laces.
For a night on the town, look out for all things glitter in 2018. Heels (including kitten heels, which will be in as well), flats, AND sneakers will be shimmering, so you can pick your favorite pair for a dressier look!
Lastly, flats have always been a popular business look, but fashion experts are predicting slingback flats and loafters will be popular shoe choices in 2018. Look out for big and bold in this trend. There will not be a lack of glitter, feathers, patent material, and bling!
Paging Agent Smith…that’s right, while big and chunky was the theme of last year, sharp and small sunglasses are making their 2018 debut, as seen on models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Will you be sporting this trend in the name of fashion, or a secret mission? We’ll never know.
Similarly with the sunglasses trend, handbags are going from big to small in 2018, meaning fanny packs are in. Before you roll your eyes and ask, “aren’t fanny packs what my grandma wears?”, we should restate. The trend is belted handbags, and they aren’t your regular fanny packs. Kendall Jenner has been spotted with these, notably by Louis Vuitton, meaning belted bags aren’t just for your grandma anymore! It’s all about small and convenient in 2018, so you don’t have to go searching for that granola bar you threw in your oversized purse last week, or the pen you borrowed but forgot t return.
In addition, clear, geometric hand and shoulder bags are also starting to make an appearance. You’ll never have to dig around looking for your cellphone or favorite lipstick again, you’ll know exactly where they are!
If you can’t stop thinking about it, buy it at your favorite Mobile womens clothing boutique! Now you can take on 2018 with your favorite accessorized look. Which trend is your favorite?
