Top Clothing Trends For 2018

With a new year upon us come new fashion trends and exciting new pieces to update your wardrobe. Soon, spring 2018 collections will begin to hit our stores and we want you to be ahead of the curve on the latest looks and fashion forecast for the year ahead. Be on the lookout for trends like flowing fringe, 60’s inspired floral prints, subtle sparkles, and romantic detailing from all of our trendiest designers. Our favorite brands like Veronica M always embrace the vintage vibes and fun floral patterns of every season, while boho brands like Free People and BB Dakota are sure to bring hot trends to the table with the latest dresses, tops, and jackets. While spring fashion is still around the corner, we want to be sure to get you off to the right start in 2018 with cold shoulder tops, shimmery tanks and plenty of feminine florals. We have all the hottest looks to get your through the rest of the winter season and the start of the new year in style.
Ride the holiday sparkle trend right into 2018 where rumor has it we will be incorporating shimmer and shine into our everyday looks well into the springtime. A subtly sparkly top like this BB Dakota sweater striped through with silvery threads is a great choice to add a little shimmer into your daily looks. With a rounded neckline and long sleeves this simple top is ideal for adding a touch of pizzazz to a jeans and tee look without ever feeling too flashy. The subtlety of the metallic sheen is easy to wear and never looks overdone meaning you can easily incorporate this black and silver top into winter and spring outfits in the new year. Give it a half tuck into your favorite jeans or black pants, or wear it loose over some faux leather leggings to dress up the look a bit more. Add in some sterling silver jewelry and you’re good to go!
Another way to wear sparkles is with this glamorous silvery tank from Veronica M. Easy to layer under a cozy cardigan or jacket, this shimmery tank will seamlessly transition into 2018 and your weekday outfits. With a high neckline featuring a groovy twist and a keyhole opening we think this top would look fabulous tucked into a little black skirt  or even paired with classic skinny jeans and booties on a day you want to look pulled together and on top of the latest trends. Although this top is woven through with metallic shine, the fabric is not so shimmery that it can’t be worn on a daily basis with more casual items to dress it down such as denim and a chunky open front sweater over the top. Sparkle your way into the new year on this shiny new trend!
Bare your shoulders in 2018, as we don’t see this cold shoulder trend going anywhere in 2018. One of this year’s hottest trends is here to stay for the foreseeable future, and we couldn’t be happier to wear our open shouldered tops and dresses for as long as possible! This fun tee shirt from Six Fifty has a gritty torn up look on one side with a double cutout along the left shoulder. We love the edgy modern look of this new arrival to wear with jeans for a comfortable and cool look in the new year. With only one shoulder exposed this tee would be cute with a long braid or low ponytail over one shoulder to balance the look and dress up the lightweight tee. In crisp winter white this top is a great choice for casual days that still require a trendy touch, or get it in black for a distinctly urban feel. One thing is for sure, and that is we plan on baring our shoulders as we roll into 2018 in style!
Incorporate some romantic details inspired by runway trends into your everyday looks with a pretty feminine blouse like this one from BB Dakota. In a soft girly pink embellished with ruffles and crochet lace, this swiss dot top embodies blissful romance. A high mock-neck gently circles the neck while fluttery ruffles of tulle create cap sleeves on this loose fit tank. The sheer upper of this top evokes a romantic vibe with a vintage touch complete with abundant dainty details, while the body of the piece is fully lined in soft champagne pink. This top is an excellent choice for a candlelit dinner paired with specialty jeans and booties or a fitted skirt and long warm jacket for a night out at your favorite restaurant. If your style is often vintage inspired this top is easily incorporated into a daytime look with feminine accessories and romantic vibes to complete a retro chic look. Either way, bringing more lace, ruffles, and textured dots into your wardrobe rotation adds to the romance and maximizes on dainty details for the year to come.
Retro 60’s florals are on the horizon for the upcoming year, and we are so excited to be able to wear our favorite Veronica M pieces in confidence knowing they fit right into the latest fashion trends. This retro paisley print brings back the heyday of the 60s when fun florals and psychedelic prints reigned. Luckily, the muted shades in this bell sleeve top are easy to wear with your go to jeans and jackets creating a look that is both trendy and classic. The small floral patterns and swirling paisley shapes bring a touch of femininity into this top, which also features fashionable flared sleeves and a flirty tie at the waistline for a retro inspired look that is updated for the current season’s favorite styles. Easily add 2018 trends to your wardrobe immediately when you wear this grey and burgundy retro printed top in the coming months.
Florals and bright colors have a certain 60’s ring to them, and this Cupcakes & Cashmere top is a perfectly retro piece with its oversized floral print to keep the look fun and cheerful. As a specialty line from BB Dakota we see fun and unique pieces like this red and green top with tie sleeves and a button up back adorning our racks at Mint locations. With rich colors suitable for winter, this top will easily transition into spring 2018 with its floral print and bright pops of red, making it a great choice to get ahead of the upcoming season’s trends. With classic jeans this top makes a statement all on its own, while speaking to the top trends in a confident way. Look great in 2018 by bringing these trends into your wardrobe to start the year off right!
