Ruffles are going to be everywhere this spring and summer. Feminine dresses and romantic ruffled shirts are going to be must have items for 2018. Ruffles are a totally wearable trend that will look great at the office or at picnics and summer parties. To wear this trend without looking like a little girl pair ruffled tops or tops with ruffled sleeves with straight leg capris and wedges for a more adult look. Or wear a ruffled skirt with a dress shirt for the office.
Lacing is a trend that is going to stick around for awhile. Lace up leggings, lace up sleeves, even corset style lace up belts are going to remain fashion staples in the coming year. In order to wear this trend without looking like you’re going clubbing don’t overdue the lacing. If you are going clubbing then rock the leggings that lace all the way up the sides but if you’re going to work or hanging out with friends a little lacing goes a long way. Summer tops with slightly laced sleeves or a laced up belt will keep you on trend without making you look like you’re just coming home from the club.
Maxi dresses are now officially a summer staple. Long and flowy maxi dresses are perfect for spring and summer and always look great. In order to maximize your curves look for maxi dresses that have a little bit of stretch to hug your curves but avoid maxi dresses that are too tight and clingy. Maxi dresses are great for the office paired with a cute summer cardigan and they easily can transition from night to day by changing your shoes and jewellery.

Pastels were all the rage in 2017 but the on trend colour for 2018 is yellow. From bright canary yellow to pale lemon yellow to mustard yellow this hue is going to be everywhere this summer. The good news is that there are enough yellow shades that it should be easy to find one that works with your skin tone.
80s fashion is back in a big way for 2018, but most of the 80s pieces on the runways have a little bit of a modern update. Rocker tees and dresses, neon colours, and metallic are going to rule the summer of 2018.
