5 of the Biggest Trends from NYFW SS18 & Where to Wear Them

So full disclosure: I didn’t actually go to fashion week, but since when has a lack of experience ever deterred someone from taking on a role they were unqualified for? This is America, dammit. Let me direct your attention to the President.

In lieu of more analytical commentary on NYFW, I’ve opted to do a brief roundup of some of the biggest trends permeating the SS18 runways, as well as a list of possible occasions for which to don them. I do what I can for the people.

NYFW SS18 Trend Report: Suits

TREND #1: Shorts Suits

(**I would like to point out that I am an OG champion of this look. Some might even go as far as to call me a trailblazer, ahead of her times**)

As seen at: Tom Ford, Prabal Gurung, Tibi, Monse

Good look for: Power lunches, meeting Hillary Clinton, 80s theme parties, a leisurely afternoon spent shopping for briefcases, extra auditions for the inevitable 2018 revival of Heathers: The Musical

NYFW SS18 Trend Report: Yellow

TREND #2: 50 Shades of Yellow 

As seen at: Christian Siriano, Leanne Marshall, Tadashi Shoji, Self Portrait, Marc Jacobs, Tome

Good look for: Instagram celebs, clearing the path for pedestrians at a crosswalk, participating in a Big Bird reenactment event, showing off your tan, showing off how pale you are to prove a point to society, announcing to the world how trendy you are because you know that millennial pink is o-v-E-r

NYFW SS18 Trend Report: Head to Toe White

TREND #3: Head to Toe White

As seen at: Victoria Beckham, Ulla Johnson, Creatures of Comfort, Dion Lee

Good look for: Going on a picnic jk I meant “going on sabbatical in a hermetically-sealed box devoid of outside particles and/or food” because that is the only situation in which one should ever wear all white unless they possess the social graces of Queen Elizabeth and can go 24 hours without spilling something on themselves

NYFW SS18 Trend Report: Fringe

TREND #4: Fringe

As seen at: Calvin Klein, Marchesa, Ulla Johnson, Diane Von Furstenberg, Monse

Good look for: Cowboys, cowgirls, real cows, people who get bored easily and use their clothes for entertainment—try braiding your shirt!, people who are really #chill at Coachella, bohemian weddings, Vanessa Hudgens

NYFW SS18 Trend Report: Bras

TREND #5: Straight Up Bras

As seen at: Tom Ford, Helmut Lang, Adam Selman, Alexander Wang, Vaquera, Zadig & Voltaire

Good look for: Boobs, getting artful tan lines, Bella Hadid, orphaned high waisted trousers in need of a top, minimalists


  1. I have been loving the monochromatic white looks that I’ve seen…the look is super clean and crisp!


  2. I am really loving those all white looks! I love yellow but that’s a tad too much yellow all at once LOL.

  3. I love the look of bras when they’re paired nicely with an outfit but I don’t think I would dare wear that on my own! haha

  4. Haha this was so entertaining to read and I loved how you covered the trends!

  5. The first paragraph has me in stitches! I feel confident that I could not pull off any of these trends!

  7. Love this post and all of these trends. Great post!

  8. Crackin up at this post, as usual. Some of these trends are a little too much haha.

  9. You never fail to make me laugh. I am SO wearing a short suit AND auditioning to be part of that Heathers remake gosh darnit!

  10. Love the head to toe white trend…but not so sure about the bra situation. LOL!

  11. Hahaha the ‘good looks for’ sections are hilarious.

  12. All of these trends are on point! The yellow everything is my jam!
