STYLE FILES: THE 8 BIGGEST FASHION TRENDS FOR FALL 2018

With the end of summer drawing near, the beckoning autumn has us eager to inject some freshness into our wardrobes. Although it’s not chilly enough to wear a coat quite yet, adding a few statement pieces to mix-and-match our outfits will help transition our style for the upcoming season.

Here are our top 8 fashion trends for fall 2018.

1. CHECKS
From a classic gingham blouse to a co-ord suit in a punchy plaid print, keep your style in check with one of the chicest patterns this season. For a subtler look, go for a check-printed ankle bootie or flapover bag.

2. THE WIDE LEG PANT
With its perfect balance of comfort and stylish edge, the wide leg pant will be your favourite staple this fall. Pair with a graphic tee or a feminine blouse for a flattering silhouette that will take you from work to weekend.

3. THE DOUBLE BREASTED BOYFRIEND BLAZER
For an effortless-meets-cool vibe, meet your match: the double-breasted boyfriend blazer. This oversized style will look great paired over your fall dresses and will dress up a t-shirt/jeans ensemble.

4. TIE NECK BLOUSES
Add some romantic flair to your outfit with a tie neck blouse. This retro-inspired top is perfect to wear all year round, but looks especially cool tucked into high waist jeans or with some wide leg pants.

5. RED
From rich burgundy to vivid crimson, red is no doubt the hottest hue of the season. For a bold pop of colour, go for a cherry red tunic dress or warm ruby moto jacket. Or, try a single standout piece, like a pair of sock boots or a crossbody bag.

6. THE WRAP COAT
Flattering silhouette? ✓ Autumn-inspired tones? ✓ Fantastically cozy? ✓ The wrap coat has continued to be a fall weather must-have. This year, on-trend hues of red, lilac, and mustard have been introduced alongside your classic neutrals.

7. ANIMAL PRINT
Bring out your wild side with the new neutral of the season: animal print. Turn heads in a leopard printed shift dress or ruffled blouse. If you’re not up for such a major statement, you can still add touches of this trend to your look with a croco belt bag or a pair of spotted heels.

8. THE BLAZER DRESS
Business meets night-out with the blazer dress trend. The sharp notch lapels and red/black check print give this tailored dress a sartorial and modern feel. Complete the look with oversized hoop earrings and a pair of ruched booties.
