Fashion changes from one season to the next and can be a bit of a hassle to keep up with. Every season designers release the new and latest offerings from their collections on runway shows. These collections are the base from which next seasons trends are derived from.

With Milan, New York, Paris and London Fashion Weeks behind us, the most significant fashion trends for 2018 have been established. From mixed prints to micro sunglasses and aromatherapy-on-the-go, it’s been a season filled with energy and optimism.

If you are a fashionable woman who likes to be kept in the know about style and trending fashion, then check these 5 fashion trends for 2018 below:

Aromatherapy on the go

Essential oil vials are everyday carry items that women should adopt. We worry about our hair, nails and faces everyday, but what about our mood and well-being.

The power of aromatherapy has long been used to support good health and promote a healthy state of mind. But in 2018 you don’t have to haul around an assortment of essential oils just to get your regular dose of aromatherapy on the go. Pack it all in an essential oil carrying case to create your own special essence collection.

Mixed Prints

London is popular as being the city of people with eccentric tastes. The runways didn’t disappoint when it came to bold prints and patterns. From the unconventional aztec patterns to polka dots at Mary Katrantzou, prints for 2018 will be subtle and more casual.

On a scale of complex trends, we put mixed prints right up there as one of the top trends for 2018. The good news is that you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to practice the art of mixing and matching. Once you know how to, you’ll successfully pair prints like a fashion expert in no time.

So be prepared to dig up your old patterned tops and dresses next year. It’s easy to create your very own style. Just choose what works for you, especially those items that complement your personal style.


Pastels were one of the biggest fashion trends in the Spring collection. It is a soft, ladylike color that is sweet looking and can be combined with almost any color. Believe me, pastel is a perfect choice for creating that perfect “Outfit Of the Day”. You can mix your pastels with other pastels for a more memorable ensemble.

While New York runways were vibrant with saturated colors, London took a softer approach with pastels and dusty hues. The romantic colors showed up on nearly every show like J.W. Anderson, Emilia Wickstead, and Peter Pilotto.

Everyone has a pastel-like color apparel sitting somewhere in there dusty closet. Make your style more amazing by incorporating your outfit with simple blacks for a more understated look.
