5 Throwback Trends for 2018



In every time period, there comes the rise of iconic fashion trends. From exquisite flapper dresses in the 1920s to dark grunge in the 1990s, there are specific styles tied to each decade. Now that 2018 is well on its way, and New York Fashion Week has past, we are seeing a rise in recurring fashion trends that are predicted to dominate the new year. While new styles and trends will definitely appear as the year progresses, the fashion industry is witnessing a revival of the most influential looks from the past.



Although plaid was at its height during the 1990s, it made a comeback during New York Fashion Week this year. A revival of plaid trousers, blazers, and boots (yes, boots!) are seen both on the runway and in the streets. A take on the classic plaid button down trend in the 90s, plaid ranging from dull greys to vibrant purples is making a comeback in both the corporate and casual atmosphere.

Dark Denim

The 1980s saw a rise in the denim trend, and 2018 plans on keeping this look alive. From low-waisted jeans to full-on denim outfit ensembles, this is one trend that will not be dying out anytime soon. Denim is one of the easiest trends to modernize and style, especially since it is on the darker side and matches most clothing and accessories.

Athletic Wear

Workout gear is quite the phenomenon today with all of the colorful, posh clothing lines that exist. While it was at its prime during the 80s and 90s, workout gear is now seen on both the runway and in our favorite stores. Whether you are in search of breaking out the vibrant tights or keeping it more casual with a grey sweatsuit, athletic wear still proves to be a successful style of clothing.

What’s interesting about 2018 thus far is the wide spectrum of styles. Elements of minimalism, a classic, neutral style, are making a comeback this year. While minimalism experienced a high during the 1920s, a revival of the trench coat, oxford button downs, jean jackets and other neutral pieces are back in style.

This year is not the first time fringe made an appearance. Rising to popularity in the 1920s during the flapper era, fringe was found on a variety of party dresses women wore to make a statement and entertain their guests. Fringe could also be found on leather jackets worn by bikers during the 1950s or during the 1960s and 1970s when society adopted a more cultural outlook. Today, fringe can be found on the runway as well as in our favorite department stores. Whether it is used as an element on boots, purses, or jackets, fringe is quite the detail.

Tatiana’s Column: Fringe Feels



Black Crochet Design Fringe Bandeau Top, $19.99, Amiclubwear.com

Hi, darlings! I hope you all are having a wonderful summer full of adventure and great memories! Whether it was going to the beach for the weekend or a quick 10-minute walk to the coffee shop, I’ve made it a priority to spend as much time outside as possible, taking advantage of each sunny day. I hope the hot weather lingers into the fall since we all know how brutal East Coast winters can be. Here’s the bright side: at least we’ll have fringe detailing making its way from bathing suits and kimonos to fall and winter wear!
Fringe used to be completely not my style, but it has grown on me during the past few months. I consider fringe somewhat of a “hippie” look, along with florals, aztec prints, and shades of cognac/tan. It’s not that I don’t wear any type of floral or aztec prints, I just need to wear those patterns with something black to tone it down and still make it a “me” outfit. If I don’t have anything black on, I feel strange and not myself. For example, if I’m wearing a colorful dress or outfit and a pair of black shoes doesn’t go well, which is very rare, I at least need to have a shiny black manicure or a dark shade of lipstick on. Therefore, if I’m wearing fringe, it must have an edgy and badass look, not an earthy one.

Fringe detailing is playful and shows a bit of skin, while keeping you covered. I found great fringe pieces that fit my aesthetic of rock ‘n’ roll edge. Ami Clubwear carries a black crochet bandeau with slight fringe that looks great when worn with a high-waisted skirt; it shows just the right amount of skin without looking over-exposed. The online store also carries an asymmetrical pleather skirt with fringe at the hem that dances as you walk. I love leather jackets, and Blank NYC makes a leather fringe jacket that will have you embracing your inner rock star. And how gorgeous is the Fendi dress? I love the color scheme and how the belt accentuates the waist of the structured, yet movable garment. These pieces will have you feeling like a rock star in no time!

Folkloric Flair


Looking for a standout scarf for fall? It’s easy to become bored by the multitude of seemingly identical scarves that feebly attempt to draw our attention. Look to folkloric costumes for fun, bright prints, warm fringe, and luscious embroidery!

Traditional folk outfits abound in intricate details and bright colors and nearly every culture produced dazzling scarves that were worn around the head, across the chest, or draped from a shoulder. Don’t worry — you don’t have to wear these stunners Babushka-style!

Etsy store MulberryWhisper has modernized this traditional Russian accessory by modifying it into another incarnation of the perennially-popular infinity scarf. This beautiful piece is decorated with a print of tulips, roses, wildflowers, and grasses and the spectrum of colors will make it easy to coordinate this scarf with your favorite cold-weather outfits!

This small, coastal country hugged by Spain is known for the colorful costumes that reflect the happy spirit of its people. This large navy blue triangle-shaped scarf in the Domingar print of  northern Portugal can be worn by crossing the ends of the triangle behind your neck and bringing them to your chest. The fringe adds a fun texture and warmth!

Mmm… can you smell the pumpkin spice in the warm orange colors of this wool scarf? Created in cozy wool to withstand the cold Polish winters, this scarf is both functional and beautiful. The smaller size of this piece lends itself well to being wrapped around a purse handle or protecting your décolleté against the brisk autumn breeze.

You won’t look like you’re wearing grandma’s tablecloth in this vintage silk scarf. The stylized floral embroidery, known as matyó, is characteristic to Hungarian folk art and also appears painted on furniture and housewares. This silk scarf would make a perfect shawl to wear at formal events!
