Spring 2018 is all about this Millennial Pink-adjacent hue, industrial-grade rubber, and the bag you denied your whole life. Read our forecast of the biggest trends for of the season, ahead.
“100% Nitrile / Synthetic Rubber” read CALVIN KLEIN’S industrial-grade pencil dress. You’ll never look at your mother’s dishwashing gloves the same way again, with brands taking rubberized materials and molding them into unexpectedly chic silhouettes. PVC is a cheaper alternative so don’t be afraid to embrace either of the two.
Who needs stiff corsetry when ruching is so much more comfortable? Fabric gets pushed around this spring with DIY pull-through details at Tory Burch, Kardashian-worthy curve-huggers at Tom Ford, and boudoir details at No. 21. We have some of our own ruching styles available from our zuppe website to stock in your stores.
Seen on the runways designed by the likes of Isabel Marant, and Prabal Gurung, this off-balanced silhouette dances along your shoulder, wraps around your neck, and twists around your collar bone. Simultaneously. Get ready for the asymmetrical neckline.
Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors Collection are hinting that Millennial Pink will be replaced by pastel-adjacent lavender come springtime. This soft purple hue is the next it-color, making a turn in knits, suiting, and whimsical formal wear
Dark denim sets
We’re not crazy enough to retire our vintage, light-wash Levi’s, but dark denim is seeing a resurgence. The selvage textile is doing double duty, with sleek Texas tuxedos showing up at Alexander McQueen, Rosie Assoulin, and more.
Black and white polka dots
Floral might be your go-to spring print, but polka dots will be a close second come next year. The print was spotted everywhere, most notably as a monochrome colorway.
There’s a wearable way to wear the rainbow without channeling Pennywise. Designers like Peter Pilotto opted for a lo-fi spectrum, making the multi-colored trend approachable, mature, and most importantly, chic.
