8 spring/summer women’s fashion trends you’ll fall in love with

Spring is here, which means summer is right around the corner. So how does that affect our wardrobes? Getting dressed during the time of year when it’s not so hot anymore, but not too cold either, can be quite tricky. However, a few key pieces can smooth the transition and keep you comfortable on chilly mornings and warm afternoons alike.

According to last year’s preventive catwalks, we will be facing a season full of delicate pastel tones, whimsical ruffles, a lot of plastic, among others. Let’s take a look at the top 8 spring/summer women’s fashion trends that you’re sure to fall in love with.

1. Cakes

Barely out of style, but generally overshadowed by their Crayola counterparts, sherbet shades are making a strong comeback this summer. And instead of accessorizing or accentuating a look with a single piece, the runways have verified the power of head-to-toe pastels. Whether it’s pink, lemon or lilac, you can expect to see a range of the prettiest shades in fashion this season.

2. T-shirt dresses

A t-shirt dress is an ideal mid-weather garment because it acts as a perfect layering piece. It’s light enough to wear under sweaters and jackets, and it looks great on its own, too. There’s no better way to start your spring day than by throwing on a casual t-shirt dress and pairing it with your favorite accessories. This piece of clothing has become a versatile must-have that easily earns style points, whatever the occasion.

3. Maxi skirts

The tights are so last month, but it’s still a little chilly for a miniskirt. However, a skirt with a longer hem, such as a ruffled maxi, will keep your legs from being exposed to chilly winds (and also makes a good disguise if you haven’t had time to work on your tan yet). You can easily combine a long skirt with a plain T-shirt and a suede or faux leather jacket.

4. Power shorts

Oh, shorts! So basic, so bland. Just hiding in the back of the drawer just to get it out for a lazy Sunday night. Or so you thought. Spring/Summer 2018 fashion trends have already seen a boom in Statement Shorts. High-waisted leather shorts from St. Laurent and silky boxer shorts from Louise Vuitton, along with a variety of other skinny shorts, are something to look forward to this season.

5. Embroidered blouses

An embroidered blouse with some cold shoulder action can instantly update everything in your closet, from jeans to skirts. Plus, it’s a great item to layer under jackets and sweaters.


When we think of checks, winter comes to mind. This year, however, the checks are everywhere. Whether they’re neutrals, pastels, or punchy, if your wardrobe has something in the geometric print, wear it today while you’re in style. You can find simple ginghams at Loewe, while blue checked shirts at Alexander McQueen and checked bag sets at Mary Katrantzou, along with a variety of other designs at Fendi, including checked tights.

7. Satin

During the London shows, satin was the most prominent fabric for two full seasons. Above all, its brilliance immediately accentuates any silhouette; and second, its innate lightness and fluidity make it an incredibly comfortable option for overnight wear. Designers at Roksanda and Chris Kane opted for flowing gowns and evening wear.

8. monkey

Whenever it’s one of those lazy mornings, a monkey is your best friend. That’s because it’s a one stop shop: you just need to put it on and go! You are ready to go. Plus, they’re refined enough for work, yet casual enough for regular events. With so many options in minimalist styles, bold prints, menswear-inspired tailoring and more, there’s a jumpsuit for just about every occasion, from work and travel to even black-tie events.

So there you have it: 8 standout modern fashion options that are likely to make a big impact on your wardrobe choices this season. Get ready for spring with a spectacular wardrobe!
