Fashion month has come and gone leaving landmark industry moments: jaw-dropping collections from Prada to Off-White C/O Virgil Abloh, incredible streetstyle, and Hedi Slimane’s controversial debut for Celine. But with a new season comes a new set of trends to follow, styles to try, and lust-worthy items to add to your cart. This season’s collections oozed femininity, bringing back styles like embellished headpieces, statement shoes, flowing silhouettes, and ladylike pearls in highlight collections like Alessandra Rich, Miu Miu, Louis Vuitton, and designer-on-the-rise Jacquemus. Take note of this season’s most popular trends seen on and off the runway, and for those who can’t wait for next season, get ahead of the game with items you can shop right now.
Hair clips, embellished pins and thick velvet headbands were major finishing touches on the runway this season. Miu Miu showcased an edgy take on accessories with dark oversized sunglasses and rhinestoned hair pieces, while Alessandra Rich took an elevated vintage approach with girly sparkling pins paired with matching earrings. Think Middle School hairstyles, but in 2018.
Architecture-inspired shoes walked this season’s runways with geometric shapes and chunky heels from Rochas and Jacquemus. For the sneaker obsessed, Off-White C/O Virgil Abloh revealed their latest collaboration with Nike showing bright hued sneakers and even a heel/sneaker hybrid shoe.
Big shoulders and billowing sleeves were this season’s most popular silhouettes in collections like Louis Vuitton and Loewe. From mini dresses to statement blouses, the bigger the sleeve, the better.
Consider pearls the fall/winter version of summer seashells. This ladylike accent was seen on both the street and the runways. Chanel revealed their latest iteration of their classic pearls layered on top of two crossbody bags. Bring out your vintage pearl earrings, or try something new with embellished undergarments layered with a blazer seen on Courtney Tropof Always Judging.
Snakeskin, a fashion neutral, was shown as one of the most versatile and easy prints to wear this season on everything from neon pants at Off-White to bold handbags. Get ready for fall with a snakeskin trench coat or even knee-high boots like shown at Saint Laurent.
