The new year is finally here and that means it’s time for some new fashion trends! 2017 saw a lot of interesting fashion trends: jeans with clear knees, sock boots, rompers for men! We’re definitely excited to see what 2018 has in store for the fashion world! Urban Outfitters is usually at the forefront of fashion trends, so we checked out their new items to see what could be the big trends of the year. There were a lot of great finds, but we managed to narrow it down to eight awesome things we’d like to see a whole lot of this year! Check out what we predict as our eight favorite fashion trends of 2018:

1. Wide-Leg Pants
So long skinny jeans and leggings! We’ve spotted some retailers stocking up on wide-leg pants, so we’re hoping that these are in store for a big comeback! What’s not to love about wide-leg pants? They’re comfortable and they give some great 70’s vibes. We are so hoping this is one of the big fashion trends of 2018.
Few things are more chic and stylish than a beret. Honestly, we have no idea why they ever went out of style. They look great dressed up or dressed down. You can wear them in the winter…and the spring…and the summer and the fall. You can wear them all the time, okay? For this reason, we’re predicting berets as one of the big fashion trends of 2018.
In 2018, we want to see all suede, everything. Suede jackets, suede boots, suede bags – we want it all! The gorgeous material hasn’t been big since the 70’s and 80’s, and we can’t understand why! It looks amazing. It feels like heaven. It even smells incredible! Okay…are we being creepy yet? In any case, we want 2018 to be drenched in suede.
4. Maxi Skirts
There was a time where maxi skirts were all over. Whatever happened to them? We love maxi skirts! You can wear a dressy maxi skirt to an evening dinner. You can wear a flowy maxi skirt for a walk on the beach. They’re comfortable and versatile and we want to see more of them this year!
5. Mock Neck Tops
Mock neck tops are almost universally flattering. They look classy and sophisticated. A mock neck can pull a look together, making it look clean and professional. You can wear a mock neck top to hang out at home or to your office job. We love clothing that can double as lounge wear and work wear!
6. Fringe Bags
We know what you’re thinking: fringe is so 70’s/80’s. Okay, yes, it is…and we love it! There are few things more fun than a fringe bag. They look great and they add an interesting flair to what may be an otherwise boring outfit. Don’t hate on our fringe; it’s making a comeback.
We don’t know about you, but we loved the 90’s. Can you even think of the early 90’s without thinking of flannel shirts? We certainly can’t! We miss the comfy and casual button-ups that everyone was sporting back in the day. As far as we’re concerned, there’s no reason flannels can’t make a comeback! That’s why we’re choosing them as one of our fashion trends of 2018.
8. Faux Fur
You read that right: faux fur. 2018 will be the year that fur products are done away with and faux fur is accepted as the norm. Even top designers (Gucci, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger) are recognizing the cruelty of the fur industry and opting to use faux fur instead. Faux fur looks just as good, feels just as good, and involves no animal cruelty. Consider us obsessed!
