All The Hottest Spring 2018 Trends From Paris Fashion Week You Need To Know Now

It may be a tad early, but there’s no harm in keeping an eye out for the trends that will be making their way into the stores – and consequently, your wardrobe, next Spring. Here, we’ve rounded 6 of the most prominent trends – from the It-colour to wear next year to the new must-have shorts:

#1: Jungle fever

It might come across as no surprise that many designers are going for this citrus-y shade of green – it is after all Pantone’s colour of the year. For those wary of trying this tricky shade (it is refreshing though – you got to admit that) we’d say go for Louis Vuitton’s pretty take on it. #2: Fringe benefits
From left: Paco Rabanne, Celine, Acne Studios and Jacquemus When even intellectual minimalists like Phoebe Philo at Celine are doing it, you know fringing is going to be big next season. And why not? It’s an easy way to add some fun into your outfit, especially when in motion. #3: Dora the explorer
From left: Akris, Loewe, Chanel and Loewe Designers frequently travel the world in search of inspiration – and this season, it would appear that they’ve translated that into uniforms for their customers. You’ll no doubt have seen Chanel’s jaw-dropping waterfall set – and in turn, Karl Lagerfeld outfitted most of his Chanel girls in plastic ponchos, boots and even hats. Swiss label Akris went for a more polished take on the look but it was really JW Anderson at Loewe that nailed the explorer look hands down. I for one will be craving those cute Loewe hats next season!   #4: Screen-saver prints
From left: Balenciaga, Comme des Garcons and Issey Miyake Bet you never thought your desk-top screensaver graphics would become “high fashion” but these days, the most sought-after trick is to turn the mundane into the so-called desirable, most notably with Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia. I’m still not sure about the sunset print pants at Balenciaga, but Comme des Garcons’ retro anime print at least, feels authentic, ditto for Issey Miyake’s globe print.   #5: Polo-mania
From left: Carven, Celine, Balenciaga and Koche It looks like the next humble item to be glorified in this age of irony is the polo shirt and there’s a wide variety of interpretations on them – from super cropped at Carven to oversized at Celine, fitted with a flounced hem at Balenciaga and transformed into a cool asymmetric dress at Koche, the polo shirt has officially been sanctioned. #6: Up-cyclin'
From left: Saint Laurent, Off-White and Nina Ricci Do we have ubiquitous model Bella Hadid and Kim Kardashian to thank for the return of biker shorts? The duo have each been spotted multiple times in variations of the shorts this summer and it seems designers are going along with it next year. Yes they may look weird now but give your eye some time to adjust to the unusual length, perhaps? Like this? Check out the best street style looks from Paris Fashion Week Spring 2018, why you need to check out this event this weekend – it showcases the coolest cafes and designer shops in the hip Jalan Basar area, and this is the super-affordable (really) It-bag that all the street style stars are carrying this season.  Images: Showbit
