Minimalist styling is a fashion and lifestyle concept that is gaining popularity among older millennials due to its practicality and ease. The idea can be summed up with a simple "less is more" approach to clothing. This, in turn, has given birth to the 2017 fashion term - normcore. It is a way of dressing in a conventional or nondescript fashion. In 2018, normcore is believed to give way to stark minimalism in your wardrobe and life choices.
Big, powerful sleeves had a big hand in the fashion trends game this year and they don't seem to be slowing down. They add an extra character to your ensemble and create the right amount of noise to get attention. Balloon, bishop, bell and much more, the power sleeves are a shoe-in for the “New Year, new you” closet!

Although slogan t-shirts have been around for a while, a new wave of fashion is taking over the industry, “woke” message clothing has arrived. The idea of fashion being “woke” can be described as using the platform to highlight the rising prominence of feminism across social culture. Beginning with Dior and their “We Should All Be Feminists” t-shirts, we guarantee you are going to see more socially conscious fashion in the New Year.
@hm announced that they are launching a unisex line called Denim United in a move to promote inclusivity💥#fiercelyfluid #h&m #denimunited #inclusive #genderneutral #genderneutralfashion #genderfluid #gendernonconforming #fashion #style
With pressure mounting on advertisers and brands to remove gender labels from their content and collections, it was about time that gender-neutral lines started to show up. Ranges from ‘Denim United’ by H&M and ‘Ungendered’ by Zara are proof of the slowly evolving fashion scene of the modern 21st century millennial.
Yes, this trend was as mind-boggling to us as it is to you right now! How can something with such an unflattering silhouette become a front-runner for top style trends? But puffer jackets did just that. Street style fashionistas are to be lauded for their effort to bring this jacket under the spotlight, it's comfy, cosy and all kinds of quirky.
Denim on denim is so 2017! The bad boy of fashion, Tom Ford, has taken it a step further and added a third piece of denim to the mix. Barring the usual shirts, jeans and jackets, women have been adding denim bras, bags and footwear to the ensemble. This OTT look is a novelty right now but come this year we foresee a surge in its popularity given that the likes of Rihanna and Beyonce have taken it up!
2017 saw a big revival of fanny packs among high fashion circles. From starts like Kendall Jenner to brands like Gucci, everybody seemed to be on board with the look. In 2018, we like to call this style bum bags and it is about to evolve into a broader bag category with more traditional designs joining the fanny pouch league.
