  • Fashion trends - Fall 2018

Animal Prints

Forget any trashy preconceptions you had about animal print - zebra and leopard are back in a big way for winter 2018, as seen on the catwalks of Victoria Beckham, Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Balenciaga and Tom Ford. Wear animal prints but keep the rest of your outfit pared-down and team with flats.

High shine (Gloss)

High-shine fabrics were key on the catwalks this season, whether vinyl, latex, plastic or leather - offering a quietly dominatrix appeal. Metallics were created in a glossy material, feminine dresses were given a subversive, fetishistic edge when created in patent red. Fendi updated the trench by giving them a rain-proof glossy finish.


Add an air of heritage chic to your wardrobe next season by nodding to the tweed trend. Marc Jacobs played with textures, styling oversized tweed coats with leather skirts. Louis Vuitton dressed numerous models in tweed skirts that most women will want next season, and then Miu Miu's bold, 80s-inspired tweed coats as fashioned on the catwalk by Elle Fanning.


Plaid, Prince of Wales heritage or tartan, checks in all their many forms are key for the new season. Americana-inspired plaid stood out at Calvin Klein, worn over balloon sleeve shirts. A more polished take can be found at Erdem, who incorporated classic Prince of Wales checks into his collection. Versace's approach had a very 90s-inspired Clueless feel - Cher Horowitz would be pleased indeed.


The most dominant of all fabrics this season was leather which came by way of skirts, trousers and trench coats. It doesn't have to be in black either - Givenchy served up coats in petrol green and Loewe did dresses in butterscotch-coloured leather. A midi black leather skirt as seen as Hermes will serve you well next winter, as will a pair of Saint Laurent's leather trousers.


One of this season's most pervasive looks, the western trend was hard to ignore. Isabel Marant opened her show with dresses and couwboy boots; Fendi also featured cowboy boots and chic neckerchiefs; and at Calvin Klein showed a futuristic look at what America might look like, complete with traditional western shirts and plaid dresses.
