CLINK, CHEERS! THREE TRENDS PERFECT FOR NEW YEARS!

BY ASHLEY TOKARUK

The holidays are here and New Years Eve plans are officially in the works! It’s the perfect time to get your favourite FW 2018 looks in before 2019 takes over. Whether you’re heading out for dinner, to a house party, or to a club, consider the following trends as a little inspo to look like a star as you ring in the New Year. 


All That Glitters

Metallic materials and bedazzled anything are timeless when it comes to holiday season. This flashy, futuristic fashion was seen on almost every FW 2018 runway, including Alberto Ferretti, Tom Ford, and Givenchy. Girls graced the stage twinkling from literal head to toe with sparkly headbands, dresses, and boots all bedazzled.  The trend may seem taunting if you tend to take a more conservative approach when styling yourself. If this is you, start small by adding glittery boots or a belt to your basics. I recommend going all-out with this trend. In the words of @badgalriri, shine bright like a diamond!

Sleepy-Chic

I’m going to be honest, this trend is my favourite and the absolute move because basically it is now socially acceptable to wear pyjama’s in public. Runways featured lacy slips, babydoll-esque dresses, and satin two-piece suits. There really is no better feeling than feeling cozy-chic, especially on a night where you basically have to stay out past midnight. Dress it up with a pair of heels or some sparkly eye shadow. I promise you, this is a trend you are not gonna want to sleep on. ;)

Faux Real

Faux coats ruled the runway for 2018, and are pretty much now standard in high-end fashion. They’re cute, comfy, and sure to keep you warm while you gallivant to your many events. With different colours and patterns these become more than just a jacket you throw on to keep you warm while outside, they become actual pieces essential to your look. The practicality of them (especially in a place as cold as Winnipeg) makes them an absolute must-have in your wardrobe, and they’re super affordable since they aren’t real fur. One thing’s for sure, faux coats are hot.
