One of the top fall 2018 fashion trends you notice on the multitude of runway shows over the span of each Fashion Week is the maxi lengths on models showing off nearly no skin. Most designers have opted for lengths past the calves, generally swishing below the ankle, many falling to the floor.
It is a long and lean look that has us really wanting to grab a Valentino crisp white dress suit, complete with a scarf around the neck that falls to bellow one’s knees. The colors that go with the long looks are spectacular, the lean working best with a bright white deal.
Matrix coats, leather dresses, long billowing organza in floral prints; nearly every trend was all about coverage, while each designer also tried to showcase the opposite, going for shirt skirts, tall boots, and even a few plunging necks. Modest and monastic is how fall 2018 is being described though, which means that you certainly do not need to be showing any skin at all if you prefer not to.
handbags for fall 2018, such as the matching laundry basket style seen at Marni. Even the scarves are oversized to match with ankle-length broad shouldered overcoats as per Marc Jacobs. Though some of theMaison Margielapieces remind us of tents with a human hidden inside.
Saint Laurent, with bulky boots as perPrada, with flowy skirts and futuristic gloves as perCalvin Klein, or over colorful leather as we saw at theStella McCartneyrunway show.
Lapels on the overcoats also look quite darling as seen atFendior given some waist definition with a leather belt as per Givenchy.
Marnirunway show. Really, it is a wonder anyone is able to walk around with so many layers on.
Some even include a combination of pants and tunics, while so many on the runways throughout the Fashion Weeks simply appeared to throw on piece over piece. Some looked great, such as a Calvin Klein foil dress over a turtleneck statement sleeve sweater.
Others were not quite so tidy, appearing more like a pile was tossed onto a body. But one thing we know for sure is that you can play with layers all you want and still stay very much in style come the cooler seasons.
Chloemakes sure we get a good amount of exposure, starting high at the nick and ending low on the diaphragm.
puffer jackets. If we have an oversized overcoat theme happening, this fall 2018 fashion trend fits in beautifully. Though we are not sure where it is heading, this year it appeared a lot more futuristic than in the past, with Christian Cowan bringing a metallic emerald green piece with side zippers and truly over-emphasized puffs.
Some even played with the collars, such as on Kim Shui’s floral creation. Some designers opted to bring back the true and tried puffer, a jacket that is beyond a doubt the best sportier and more casual coat you can get your hands on.Prabal Gurung’s shearling hooded oversized bomber looked spectacular in an amethyst hue.
plus sized modelsin mermaid silhouettes. We see a lot of strapless on the runways, as well as some off-the-shoulder designs.
Lots of cutouts can be found at the Eckhaus Latta runway show as well, one pretty sweet yellow hued dress in particular sticking out among the rest.
Alexander Wangbrought this forward with an off-the-shoulder cropped and extra high-waist legging number, complete with a shearling finish.
The sportier looks featured this fall 2018 fashion trend very well, with Jeremy Scott playing it up on a hot pink tracksuit in velvet, and Dion Lee playing with translucent fabrics on sleeves and abdomen, shirt tucked into matching white jeans.
knee-high bootsit appears, with the tops fully zipped and the drawstrings only partly covered over.
Shiny, velvet, matte and patterned; you can see all types of fabric used to create this sweet sporty chic fashion trend, with Alexander Wang simply making your gym session appear like the perfect runway show, shearling shoulders and all.
Carolina Herrerahas quite a bit to offer in that department.
colors of the year. Christopher Kane certainly had the right idea with large sequin armor-style designs appearing on its runway, while Paco Rabanne gave us enough glitter to light up the night sky on skimpy pieces that left little to the imagination.
As for Halpern, let’s just say that asymmetrical skirts, side slits, single-shoulder designs combined with dark silver sequins are quite the attractive combination. The high shine is nearly all you might be wearing next season, so choose your outfits carefully.
From what we can see though,Balmaintakes home the prize for the shiniest ensemble. The sparkle and shine is even more to our liking when it appears as if we have stepped out of a disco ball and into a disco club. From cocktail dresses to wrap dresses and handbags, we even get two-piece suits in this fall 2018 trend appearing on the runways.
fall 2018 print trends, yes, but it is the tweed fabrics that bring the ‘80s in with gusto. Marc Jacobs, and Chanel, Adam Lippes, and Miu Miu; so many styles, so many creations and so many ways to wear tweed this fall 2018.
Tweed coats look incredible, while matching tweed sets, plumped with tulle as seen at Altuzarra, give us some flight of fancy. As for one of the best combinations? Think leather and tweed jackets worn over short slit skirts and starched white collar shirts as per Matty Bovan! Or you can go schoolgirl style and wear it with a few oversized layers in between.
Mary Katrantzougave us some pastels among the deeper, more exciting colors on the runways.
The fall 2018 fashion trends seem to be placing quite the focus on a glossy finish, with both latex and leather making the cut. Fendi even has shoes in a matching high shine coating, while Moncler really does wow with its creativity in design. If you prefer an added glittery texture, go for Victoria Beckham though, while the truly eccentric would only choose Jeremy Scott in this.
New York Fashion Weekthat brought in quilting as a fall 2018 fashion trend, combining sass, sexy and survival in one gorgeous outfit. Tibi’s sports meets formal suit design grabs our attention from the start – its quilted texture only adding to its flavor.
Quilted safety blankets were also toted around on stage from time to time, but mostly we saw the quilted look. From Colovos pants to Derek Lam skirts to some sexy Prabal Gurung numbers, this trend really brought in the cozy feel.

Even the highVersaceplatforms take us back in time so perfectly. If you have leather jackets collecting dust, fall 2018 is the perfect time to take them out and sport the beautifully black look with grandiose.
Tom Fordon the red carpets. Needless to say, it is a fall 2018 fashion trend that allows for immense amounts of creativity. Have fun with the shiny and silver combinations for the fall and winter seasons, and you will certainly be the belle of the ball.
Isabel Marantand Chanel coats in this category are simply to die for. The folklore fashion, with a bohemian twist, is perfectly adaptable to any situation.
Elie Saab, and Giambattista Valli also joined in their ranks with some of the loveliest pieces on the runways. White and lace combinations appeared at Leowe, complete with scarves and extra-long sleeves, while we went slightly more Victorian with Elie Saab.
Valentino florals are quite romantic as well, with the bell sleeves and pleated patterns making one appear to be a garden fairy. And what fabric screams romance more than silk?Louis Vuittongave us some pretty incredible designs in this trend.
Alberta Ferretti’s jumpsuit, the Coach leather jackets, or the David Koma Western meets the office professional suits.
Balenciaga, Maison Margiela, Roksanda, Givenchy, and Lemaire to figure out which look fits you best. We have to say though Calvin Klein’s leather jacket over crepe suit jacket combination is a stellar composition.
animal printsthat have been all the rage on the runways for years now.
Rhinestone string dresses from Gucci anyone? On the other hand, Prada’s designs look like we can be using recycled plastic for high fashion soon enough.
#50. Leggings of All Types
The athletic trend seems to be going strong in all spheres, particularly when we look at some of the more glamorous looks that double over as sporty and comfortable. It also falls into the 1980s style category, bringing in sequins and animal prints as well. You can wear leggings with anything from a simple tee to a tuxedo.
Some designers went for the original take, while others strived to make an environmental comment with their intriguing designs and prints. If you plan to wear leggings to a club, go with a Tom Ford look; if you prefer to combine warmth with comfort, it is Victoria Beckham you simply must turn to.
R13 offers some environmental love, while Alexander Wang gives you high waists and underwire crop tops, perfect for a sexy gym session.
#51. Covered Up Shoulder Flash
During the summer days, it is only natural to bare a shoulder or two to soak up the sun. Come fall and winter, the cooler weather requires one to cover up as much as possible. This has given birth to the single shoulder layer over a high-neck sweater, effectively creating a fun and sassy but still highly professional look.
Combining the ‘80s flash dance shoulder with the trending modest and monastic style brings for a look that rocks it with plaid as on the Marc Jacobs runway, goes great with high contrast coloring as seen on Rosie Assoulin, and with way too many oversized layers as per 3.1 Phillip Lim.
#52. Sexy Suiting
We have all types of suits that we have already mentioned that kept making an appearance all over those catwalks. However, it is the sexier-cut designs that really need their own category, ranging from cold shoulders to strategic slashes above emphasized underwire bra effects.
Business really meets pleasure with this fall 2018 fashion trend, with the pieces definitely more suited for a night out instead of the office. Asymmetrical necklines, very short hemlines and funky sleeves all added to the look’s intrigue.
We are in love with the Alexander Wang and Cuchnie et Ochs pieces that fall into this category, though Jonathan Simkhai also did a pretty good job here.
#53. Ruched Skirts
One of the most flattering fall/ winter 2018-2019 fashion trends from the runways we are happy to see back is the lovely ruched skirts that hugged your body like a glove and still managed to make you look amazing. This fall, ruching down the sides of midi dresses and across miniskirts is all in and you can really use it to elongate your frame as you wish.
Balenciaga’s pieces will cover up any muffin tops and pouches, while Saint Laurent’s minis have us wondering just how much can be seen if we stare down the stairs. We absolutely love the longer Miu Miu floral dresses, though! However, the top piece in this category has to be Balmain’s futuristic silver ensemble.
