As we get ready to usher in a new year, it's also the time to recall previous fashion trends. Because being a fashion enthusiast, we can't say goodbye to 2018 without reminiscing about some of the biggest style trends of the year. From top sneakers to biker shorts, these trendy pieces were everywhere and worn with pride by many fashionistas. So, before we usher in the new trends for 2019, take a look at all the items that made their way into our wardrobes this year.
Mentioned below are the top fashion trends of 2018:
While sneakers are a shoe trend that ultimately represents practicality, the most sought-after ones in 2018—clunky, bold, with designer names—spoke less to our desire of hitting 10,000 steps a day and more to wanting to make a big fashion statement without sacrificing any comfort. The top sneaker trend certainly took hold of everyone's wardrobes in 2018.
Black biker shorts
In an annual shopping report of eBay, it is revealed that nearly 110,000 cycling and biker shorts were sold on the site in 2018 alone. The trend was more popular among fashion A-listers than bloggers.
Waist bags/ Fanny packs
Practicality, convenience, and the ability to be completely unencumbered clearly ranked high for shoppers in 2018. Also called belt bags, these look undoubtedly stylish and are super affordable available in different fabrics.
This year, we saw the hunger for logo-covered merch, from Fendi shirts and accessories to the revival of Dior's beloved saddle bag. Whether you favoured these two designer names, or Google's most-searched brands, Louis Vuitton and Versace.
Though this piece might seem surprising considering the several athleisure trends on this list, a blazer is still so widely accepted as the item that means business in the most literal sense. Since a good percentage of women all across the globe are independent and career oriented, that is why the trend of blazers can never go out of style.
As we hopped on this trend in the year 2018, your feet are probably thanking you. These low heels, typically under 2 inches, are also so much more manageable to walk in than sky-high heels, especially for long periods of time.
Ruffles and frills
Oversized was clearly a major theme on designer mood boards for 2018. Aside from the massive coats and big hats, we also saw a ton of looks with extra-large and over-the-top frills and ruffles.
Tiny sunglasses were everywhere all of a sudden in 2018. These frames were sometimes too small to actually shield your eyes from the sun but at the same time, they were cool to look at. Every brand, from Prada to Zara, offered tiny frames in a variety of colours.
