After a whole month of back-to-back fashion shows, swanky after-hours parties and an impressive batch of street style, fashion week spring summer ’18 is officially over. And we know what you want to know in the wake of it: What are the trends I actually need to know about? After all, there were thousands of runway looks, dozens of shows and four cities worth of outfits to contend with.
Lucky for you, there’s nothing we love more than diving headfirst into the fashion week chaos, and coming out the other end with a tentative grasp of the trends you’ll be wearing next.
Consider this less of a “what to wear next” guide and more of an official excuse to experiment with your wardrobe. After all, this season was filled with an unexpected (and very welcome) injection of joy and playfulness on the runway. The Donald Trumps and Harvey Weinsteins of the world can lull us into believing that the world is sad, dark place, but the designers at fashion month used their platform to remind us that positivity and optimism will always be there to fight back.
From the welcome return of luxury cardigans, to peasant blouses, baby pink and snakeskin (!!), here’s your official spring summer ’18 debrief.
