If you haven’t picked up on the newest trends of the year yet then look no further, we’ve put them all together in one place so you can spend less time swiping through the web and more time online shopping. Perfect right?
Check out our top picks of this year’s hottest trends below.
Got a thing you have to go to but no outfit inspo? The maxi dress is THE perfect instant outfit that can take you from ball to brunch. Throw on a pair of barely-theres? You’re red carpet ready. Team with a leather jacket and trainers? You’ve got cool girl daytime dressing down to a tee. Satin maxi dresses, in particular, are big news this year. There’s something jaw-droppingly elegant about a floor-length satin dress, but when worn over a white tee you win major casual style points.
We’ve got major stars in our eyes over the biggest print to drop this season. Star prints are BACK and in a big way. Give off mystical vibes in a floaty star-print midi dress, or dare to bare in a cute mini shift dress. Worn with a leather jacket and heeled boots this look is night-out ready but can be teamed with high top trainers for a more chilled day time look. If an all-over print is a bit much for your laidback style, then give a nod to the trend with star print accessories like the celebs and bloggers.
Does anything say spring is coming like flowers in bloom? Maybe that’s why floral patterns are dropping HARD this season, and being sported by celebs all over. Floral dresses, as always, are a pretty way to wear this trend. Elevate your look to Instagram worthy by wearing over a t-shirt for #OOTD goals. Trousers are another way to sport this look- Floaty, wide leg and floral looks fab. Or, if you’re feeling especially brave, channel Alexa Chung and wear a full floral suit.
This is a style you cannot get wrong, stripes are the ultimate statement and an absolute classic. Wear a standout piece like a bright striped Bardot top, for an easy nod to this trend. Or go for a head-to-toe stripe out in a jumpsuit or co-ord. A very 2018 way to wear your stripes is with tape detailing down the side of your wide leg tracksuit bottoms, which not only nails the athleisure look but also gives you legs for days.

Leopard print is a pattern that can bring together any outfit and make you look instantly fashion, even if you threw your outfit together in 5 minutes. Spotted outerwear is huge this season, and we especially love the rockstar vibes a leopard print biker jacket gives off. This pattern can even look feminine, as a floaty midi dress or frill sleeved blouse. And if all else fails, one of the easiest ways to show your wild side is with a pair of leopard print ankle boots.
