After closely monitoring NYFW 2018 runway shows, the top trends for fall/winter 2018 have been narrowed down; lilac, crazy animal prints, puffy furs, plaids, muted florals, miniature bags, fanny packs, sparkly socks, heeled mules, and slouchy boots. Trends this season are similar to previous years, but with a new approach focusing on interesting silhouettes and styling. Clothing will be very print focused with loose fitting styles.
