Fashion trends in 2018

Fashion and Social media influencer Urszula Makowska is a fashionable New Yorker with over 116k followers on Instagram. She was invited to almost every event of the New York Fashion Week. Urszula is influencing others with her fashion style and at this occasion, she had an interview that revealed what the fashion trends are of 2018, as seen at the NYFW.

As a fashion blogger, what were you looking forward to seeing in New York Fashion week?

The most exciting time of the year for bloggers is always fashion week. This time of the year is the busiest for us. We plan our outfits and the events we will attend in advance. We work hard to coordinate everything to perfection including travel and hotel stays.

Personally, I love fashion week. For me, it is extremely exciting. I am a fashion addict and I love to attend shows and presentations to view the upcoming trends for the next seasons. I love to see what designers have created for the upcoming seasons. It is all a work of art and a way to express yourself. Then I love to share the upcoming trends with my followers and readers. During this F/W 2018 New York Fashion Week, I was super excited to attend my shows since I officially received over 40 invitations, and this included some of the big designers from Badgley Mischka to BCBG Maxazria. I was extremely proud of myself to have the ability to attend my shows and presentations. It has shown me how far I came into my career as a blogger. I was also looking forward to not only attending the shows and events, but also seeing friends who were flying into New York City, networking, meeting other bloggers, and working together with photographers to take photos of my looks.

Why is it important for a fashion blogger to attend Fashion Week?

Fashion week is extremely important for any fashion blogger and fashion influencer. Now-in-days, we bloggers and influencers hold the power to influencing and generating sales. We dominate the market and this directly means that we always have to be on top of the upcoming trends. Followers and readers look up to us as having the knowledge of our niche and market. They know us as the experts for getting style inspiration or simply buying what we are wearing or using. Fashion week allows us to keep up with the upcoming trends. We are able to see what products will be hot for the next season and how they can be styled. We are able to see the new trends before anyone else and we are able to introduce these new innovations to our followers and readers.

Aside from that, attending fashion week is also important to us in terms of networking. By attending these events, we are meeting people constantly. These people may be bloggers, editors, or photographers. We have the ability to form a relationship and partner together in the future. I know I personally have met a lot of people this season and I created strong friendships with them. We are always working together and supporting one another. At the end of the day, this only benefits you.

What was your best event so far from NYFW and why?

The best event from NYFW for me was going backstage with Aveda for Tibi. I personally love Tibi and have always wanted to attend one of their shows. Tibi’s fashion shows are extremely popular. A lot of bloggers always want to attend Tibi’s show. Luckily, I was able to go backstage with Aveda since I have a strong relationship with Aveda as one of their influencers. I was able to see the full on hair trends, hair tips, hair inspirations, makeup trends, makeup inspirations, and looks beforehand. I was extremely happy to see everything beforehand, but to learn a lot myself. I was happy to network and see my Aveda family.

Which look was your favorite look that you wore to NYFW?

One of my favorite looks for the shows was the classic Chanel themed look I went for from the S/S 2018 show. I bought a cute classic Zara dress and jacket that looked similar to the Chanel vibes from their S/S 2018 show. I layered a lilac turtleneck under the dress and paired it off with Kanye West Tubular shoes.

Which fashion trends are going to be popular this year according to NYFW?

There are a lot of upcoming trends that I saw during the F/W 2018/2019 shows that I am looking forward to.

Currently plaid is in, but don’t worry, it is not leaving anywhere anytime soon. For the upcoming seasons, we will see plaid like never before. It will be bolder than ever. We will be making statements in plaid. Plaid in saturated hues such as hot pink will be hotter than ever. During NYFW plenty of designers showcased plaid suits in hot pink and they were incredible.

Regarding outerwear, puffers, fur, and trench coats will be in trend. They will be more dramatic than ever. They will catch anyone’s eyes. We saw puffers on the runway in bright hues and extremely oversized. That is how we will see them in the fall and winter. Fur jackets were seen in bright colors from yellow to red. Trench coats were seen in leopard prints everywhere during NYFW.

One new trend that was introduced the new crop top silhouette. This top is a part bathing suit, part sports bra, and part strapless bra with underwire. It was seen a lot on the runway and will be extremely popular.

In terms of color trends, red and hot pink will be the hottest colors of the season. We saw bright pink everywhere on the runway from tops to shoes. We also saw red dominate from head to toe. The most exciting part is that the combination of pink and red will be extremely popular. Most designers used a combination of both of their pieces.

What is your personal favorite trend from NYFW?

One of my personal favorite trends will be tea length floral dresses. During the shows, these dresses were paired with cute booties. I am a big fan of booties and floral prints. I find this trend to be extremely chic, but casual. It is perfect for any person to easily put together for any occasion.

URSZULA MAKOWSKA 

Fashion blogger Urszula Makowska reveals upcoming fashion trends for 2018

As the year comes to an end, we have seen many trends dominate the market from the bold red to oversized sleeves to off the shoulder tops, etc. With the new year around the corner, we will be seeing new trends to dominate the market and it will be time to say goodbye to those 2017 trends.

 

New color that will dominate the market

Forget about everything, for S/S 2018, we see a new color that will dominate the market. That color is lavender. We’ve seen it all on the runway from S/S 18 runway shows. From head to toe full-on lavender or just even a pop of lavender. I know I will be wearing a lavender suit from head to toe this upcoming season. It’s feminine and chic and the ideal spring color from the pastel colors that tend to be popular in demand during this time of year.

 

Although lavender will dominate the market, color blocking is classic spring trend that is not going away anytime soon. Shine bright like a diamond and pair of those bold colors. You can color block with a yellow trench coat and red dress underneath. There are plenty of ways to play around with this.

 

Well, what about the classic trench coat? Scratch that. We used to see trench coats during the fall. Now we will see the classic trench coat in different forms like we have never seen before during the spring. Belted with oversized belts, fringed on the bottom as a detail, and definitely a variety of different colors that make this trend unique.

 

The classic upgrade

The classic slip dress we all loved, will no longer be classic. The classic slip dress gets an upgrade.  It’ll be the perfect dress for a night out with friends. Sexier and edgier it’ll be the one piece we will want to have in our closet. We will find it in a variety of metallic colors.

 

Along with that, dark washed denim on denim is back. I know I definitely will invest in a two-piece set of dark washed denim. It looks so chic and is the perfect casual look for the girl out in the city. Either a jacket or pants or jacket and skirt will work just perfectly.

 

Fringe is still on!

Also, don’t forget to get your fringe on. Fringe is a continuous trend we will see and it is not leaving. We will see fringed feather dresses, fringe on our trench coats, and fringed tops everywhere. I will definitely get my fringe on.

 

As edgy and chic as I am, my favorite spring and summer trend is the sheerness. I love sheer tops and look forward to excitingly pair them with the midi skirts that are to be in style. It’s super chic and perfect for anywhere on the go.

 

Transparent shoes

And last but not least, my favorite trend of all times will be the transparent or translucent shoes. I have never owned a pair, but I am about to invest in a classic Yeezy’s from season 4, as it will dominate the season. Pair it with a cute two-piece set and you’re ready to go.

 

As we wait patiently for the F/W 19/20 trends, I can tell you for a fact we will see shades of browns, grays, and black. Layering will continue to dominate the market and anything from comfort will stay. Oversized sweaters, turtlenecks, woven pants, and puffers will be here to stay. We will see dark floral patterns and we will be bringing back goth.
