Fall 2018 Trend Report
As summer starts to wind down, Fashion Fabrics Club takes a look forward to next season’s biggest trends to help you get your wardrobe in check for the fall season.
Next season we’re seeing a reinvention of classic plaid. Instead of the typical subdued, earthy shades it’s being turned out in big, bold hues inspired by the “more is more” fashion of the ‘80s. And it’s not just in blazers, it’s being used in pants, tops, skirts, dresses, nearly everything.
From vacation-ready cropped culottes to office-worthy high-waisted trousers, the wide leg trend is having a major moment right now and we see no signs of it slowing down in fall. The fabrics will just be a bit heavier, think: tweeds, heavy twills, thick denim, etc.
Shiny textiles and metallic fabrics are going to be all the rage next season. No matter what your styles, there’s a way for you to play to the trend from whimsical sparkle-clad tulle skirts to fierce, futuristic looking metallic bomber jackets.
The evolution of the fur trend for next season is a little pared back compared to the bold, oversized furs we saw last year (not that we’re saying those will be going away this year). Extras like shearling vests, fur-trimmed jackets and boots, and fuzzy sweaters, bags and accessories will be adorning the looks of style mavens everywhere this fall.
