Let’s just hope this trend never gets out of fashion. ‘Cause do we ever really (want to) wear anything else besides trainers and hoodies? Luckily for SS2018 it’s still allowed to release the Sporty Spice within. Although that sporty style did get some updates too. Being a good sport when it comes to this trend means dressing both practically as well as feminine. So it’s all about tight bodies with high zippers and tulle skirts (Dior), tight leggings and cropped jackets (Tommy Hilfiger), loose fitting yet off shoulder zipped up jackets (Lacoste), hot pants and running jackets (Isabel Marant) and highly accessorized sporty suits (Gucci). And let’s not forget the suncaps, the beanies, the cross body bags and the gloves. Ready for a good game of extreme sports while showing of your best body parts. Fast fashion never looked this good.

As spring flowers are starting the sprung we can already smell the new fashion season that is around the corner. And as excited we are for temperatures to start rising we simply can’t wait to indulge in some of those brand new spring trends. High on our spring/summer trend list and probably one of the trends we’ll be able to wear outside the soonest is that of the (deconstructed) trench coat. It’s been popping up for a few seasons already, yet this time around we’re officially calling it a trend as houses like Céline, Balenciaga, Chloé and Valentino have played their bets on it as well. Whether camel or sand colored, fringed, layered, cut-out, sliced, oversized or even in the form of a duo coat (Balenciaga); the trench is the ultimate spring coat. Pair this classic with a hoodie or over a denim jacket (for a youthful/sporty touch) and some extra layers for now. Throw it open and show some off that tea dress (and some sexy legs) in a few months.

Another eighties revival in fashion means shoulders once again are the focus point in many summer silhouettes. If it’s up to Gucci, Saint Laurent and Off White big, rounded shoulders are a ‘thing’ again. Preferably combined with something leg revealing (Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant) or high waisted and high heeled (Y project, Off white). An eighties color(black) palette of mint greens and purples is in order as well. Now let’s see if you still got those eighties dance moves to match!

Was it from the catwalk to the streets or vice versa?
