Fashion pundits are predicting some tremendous changes in the fashion and beauty industry in 2018. But as long as the millennial’s generation continues to dominate the scene, their unique fashion preferences will continue to shape many aspects of the clothing industry in the coming year. 2017 has seen some of the most prodigious changes in the fashion industry. For instance, we witnessed a substantial shift from the ’70s fashion trend to the ’80s glam look. This move and other similar evolutionary occurrences in the past one year have had a very huge impact in the clothing industry as a whole.
Such radical transformations have resulted in the adoption of new favorite colors in the design of clothes and accessories and the preference of new bolder fashion designs across the entire industry — causing the industry to embrace a more innovative production approach and marketing strategy. Industry analysts expect the cumulative effect of this shift in fashion to spawn some of the boldest and sexiest fashion trends in 2018. Check out some of the predictions.
One of the boldest fashion trends from 2017 was exposed bras. Yeah, that’s right. Starting from 2017, bras are no longer required to be hidden under shirts, tops and blouses; they are now treated as outerwear. While this was a phenomenal fashion trend, it comes nowhere near the colossal fashion fad expected in 2018. It’s all about exposed briefs and panties in 2018. Already we have seen some of the biggest underwear designers like Hugo, Adam Selman, Christian Dior, and Fendi showing their briefs under various dress designs including see-through and sheer fabric designs..
Some of the biggest fashion houses have already rolled out their clear or transparent outfits and accessories. Tibi has already launched its transparent corset, Batmain has a clear maxi dress that exposes the aforementioned briefs, Off-White wants you to buy their plastic-wrapped collab, and Chanel is marketing a plastic over-the-knee rain boot. And to enhance the fashion appeal of their bold transparent designs, these top brands are modeling their products on global fashion trendsetters/icons like Rihanna.
Many prestigious fashionistas have already designed and showcased feather dresses. Moschino, Saint Laurent, Topshop, and Maison Margiela modeled feather outfits in some runways around the world in 2017. This bold and super sexy fashion trend is expected to take root in 2018.
Changing Color Trends
In 2017, the fashion industry was dominated by the color pink, which is generally associated to millennials. However, fashion experts expect the color preference to change to the pastel-adjacent lavender by the spring of 2018. Floral prints are also here to stay, in many different shapes, patterns, and colors. Other expected color transitions include a widespread adoption of white suits, white tanktops, black & white polka dots prints, dark denim sets, and rainbow stripes.

And last but not least, 2018 promises bold neckline and shoulder designs.
