The Ultimate Spring Selection Trend Guide

The fashion world is always ahead of us, and there is a good reason for it. The spring and summer collections have been showcased during September and early October, and we're thankful for the early notice. It gives us plenty of time to summarize our impressions, narrow down our choices, and it gives fast fashion retailers plenty of time to provide their own interpretations of the predicted and dictated trends so they're available to a broader audience just in time for them to rock them.

So, here it is, the list of the best and most wearable trends for you to pick and choose from and welcome spring the way it's supposed to be done.

50 Shades Of Purple

50 shades of purple result

Millennial pink has in the past couple of years been one of the most dominant hues out there, present in both couture gowns as well as athleisure pieces. While the presence of the gender-neutral hue was still strong on the runways, it has been slightly overshadowed by the presence of a variety of purples. So, this spring, take a cue from Carolina Herrera, and rock the dark and powerful purple, Ultra Violet - the official color of the year 2018, as well as lighter pastel hues such as lilac. The romantic and subtle lilac will make you look like walking spring, and you can wear it deep into summer, even be the ultimate resort style goddess.

If You Like It, Flaunt It

If you like it flaunt it result

If you were saddened by the death of the logo, feel free to rejoice, because logomania is definitely back. It seems as if the logo wasn't dead so much as it was taking a nap while designers were preparing to make it bigger and more conspicuous. Every fashion powerhouse, from Gucci, Fendi to Versace did not hold back on splashing the logo all over tops, bags, dresses, so all you have to do is find your favorite brand and surely find at least one item with your beloved logo on it. When worn in an ensemble that's overall understated and low-key, the logo can look incredibly cool, chic even.

A Little Asymmetrical Party

A little asymmetrical party result

Spotted at Altuzarra, Isabel Marant and numerous other designers, the asymmetrical neckline is definitely the most captivating trend. The fabric seems to be everywhere - the neck, the collarbone, the shoulders, and yet still leaving plenty of skin exposed for an additional dose of sensuality. Both tops and dresses with this neckline are already available, and Aussie girls have already snagged their asymmetrical party dresses in Australia, and they're rocking them while it's still summer, but northern hemisphere, worry not, your time to shine is just arriving.

The Shifty Times

The shifty times result

As much as we anticipate the arrival of spring, we must bear in mind that the season can play tricks on us and bring sudden chills leaving us in dire need of great outerwear. The piece to own this season is an oldie but goldie - the mighty trench coat. If you already own one in a neutral camel hue, make sure it's dry-cleaned and ready for those chilly spring days. Those of you whose wardrobe is short of this item, better hop to it, and while you're browsing, you might want to check the upgraded 2018 version which can be embroidered, or even deconstructed as seen on the models walking for Alexander McQueen.

Power Up

Power up result

Power up, suit up - the point is the same. We already know that the power suit of the fall and winter of 2017 was either red or plaid, as these were the dominant color and pattern of the season, respectively. The plaid and red will still be worn during spring, make no mistake about it, but if you wish to be the epitome of spring power, your choice of suit will be a poignant white, complete with a wide-shoulder blazer as done by Tom Ford, because nothing says 'powerful' like shoulders that just don't quit.

How to Pack Like a Fashion Editor

featured image

Most people in the world would tell you that they love travelling, but hate packing. Perhaps the only people fond of the packing process are Monica-types (Friends), although it’s highly doubtful there are many of these outside the fictitious realm. However, whether you’re an avid traveler who lives out of their suitcase, or even if you travel only for holidays, mastering the art of packing is essential for everyone.

Now, who better to take cues from in this department than fashion editors? Not only do they travel frequently, but they also know clothes and beauty inside out, which makes them THE people to turn to, so let’s.

Two Birds, One Stone

Two birds one stone

One of the most ingenious packing tricks is rolling. Yes, roll your clothes instead of folding them. This way, not only do you maximize the space in your suitcase, thus leaving plenty of room for your accessories and beauty supplies, but you also avoid the dreaded creasing and wrinkling. Whether you’re going away on business or on holiday, the last thing you need is a suitcase full of clothes that you have to either iron or go around looking like something from the clearance bin.

Save The Dust Cloth Bags

Save the dust cloth bags

When you purchase a purse or a pair of shoes, they usually come with a dust cloth bag. Don’t dispose of these, as they will save your life and luggage. Place your bags and your chosen footwear in these before placing them in the suitcase so as to prevent them from coming into contact with your clothes. That helps keep everything neat and clean, plus, it helps the shoes and bags from being squished. Bring an extra one, it will come really handy for separating dirty laundry.

Pre-plan Is The Name Of The Game

Pre plan is the name of the game

There are two kinds of travelers – those who over-pack and end up not wearing the majority of items they carried and those who under-pack and end up missing pieces to create an outfit. In order to avoid either situation, always pre-plan your outfits. A perfect top won’t do you any good if there’s nothing you can pair it with, right? Always make sure to pack a couple of elegant designer dresses, as you never know when the opportunity to wear them will arise. Every trip comes with certain surprises, so always be prepared.

Now, if you’re staying somewhere for an extended period of time, there is little chance you’ll be able to pack a number of separate outfits to last you the entire trip. This is why it’s always a good idea to decide on a color scheme. This is one of the best tricks because non-clashing prints and color palettes go well together, so you’ll be able to mix and match and make outfits seem fresh even when they’re created using a limited number of elements.

All Those Jewels

All those jewels

With the clothes come accessories, but one of the biggest hassles is preventing necklaces from getting tangled. Your best bet is to pack them in plastic wraps. Press 'n Seal is the absolute best choice as this wrap sticks together when you press it, ensuring that necklaces don’t come anywhere near one another. 

Beauty On The Go

Beauty on the go

Investing on lip palettes is always a great idea because it gives you plenty of lip color options without having to carry ten separate tubes. When it comes to the rest of your makeup, always bring your go-to foundation (you don’t want to take chances here), mascara, and your must-have eyeshadow palette. The best thing you can do is pack double-duty products such as bronzer and blush as these can serve as eyeshadow and save you from having to pack an entire palette.

Avoid anything that comes in a glass bottle because there’s always the danger of it leaking or breaking. Refillable plastic bottles are always a wonderful option if you don’t want to purchase travel size creams and skincare essentials. Finally, travel size shampoo, conditioner, lotion is a must, unless you’re comfortable with hotel toiletries.
