Hottest Spring Summer Fashion Trends In 2018


Hottest Spring Summer Fashion Trends In 2018

Each change in season presents us with new inspiration and trends to follow when it comes to fashion. Styles change, new colours become ‘popular’ and there’s a brand new attitude to adopt when it comes to dressing as the best version of yourself.

By now, it’s clear that the cold, brisk days of winter are officially behind us, which means spring summer fashion is very much at the forefront. At Stockland, we’re shedding the dark, heavy layers and embracing floaty fabrics, head-to-toe tonal moments, clashing prints and bright “look at me” statement accessories. If the catwalk trends are anything to go by, this season is set to be a bold one. So, without further ado – here are some of the hottest trends for spring summer 2018.

Pretty In Pastel

While pastel is certainly not a new trend, it’s never been reinvented quite like it has for spring summer 2018. Think shades of ballerina pink and baby blue, combined with lavender and lemon for the more adventurous fashionista. There’s just something about this sorbet-inspired colour palette that feels incredibly grown up and put together. For added detail, try a striped shirt or floral print from Jeanswest. But don’t stop there, your accessories and sleepwear can be pretty in pastel too.


Jeanswest Farah Wrap Dress $89.99, Noni B Liz Jordan Glomesh Soft Micro Pouch $39.95, Sportsgirl Soft Denim Jumpsuit $109.95, Spendless Shoes Layla Mule $39.99, Specsavers Sark Sun RX Sunglasses $199, Noni B Sabrina Neck Detail Tee $49.95, Angus & Coote Elite Rose Gold Tone Watch $149, Sportsgirl Neck Tie $19.95, PANDORA Rose Timeless Zig Zag Ring $69.

Tonal Moment

It would be easy to overlook this next trend as being overly fussy and fraught with danger, but we’re here to tell you an all-tonal look is right on the fashion money this year. In general, people underestimate the chic nature of this look, instead turning to an all-black number, which while classy, can sometimes feel tired and out-dated. Whereas, a tonal look allows you to really experiment with shape, texture and intricate detail.

We’re especially fond of this stud pocket pant and crop-top combo from Rockmans and Jay Jays or this adorable gingham playsuit from Sportsgirl. Just add mules from Spendless Shoes and gold accessories and you’ll be a picture of sophistication at every event this summer.

Jay Jays Square Neck Linen Crop $34.95, Rockmans Stud Pocket Pant $49.99, Spendless Shoes Layla Mule $39.99, Sportsgirl Gingham Linen Playsuit $89.95, Sportsgirl Willow Sun Hat $39.95, Sportsgirl Cindy Natural Flatform $79.95, Sportsgirl Pendant Necklace $29.95.

Statement Accessories

A statement piece of jewellery is the easiest way to incorporate bright colour into your wardrobe for summer, especially if you normally gravitate towards a simpler colour palette. And this season, your jewellery should be in the spotlight, not blending into the background.

For pieces that really pack a punch, you can’t go past some statement earrings from Lovisa, a brightly coloured scarf from Jeanswest or a pair of head-turning pumps from Novo Shoes.

If you feel like you need to break up all that colour with something a little more dainty, rose gold is once again the metal of the season. Head in to Angus & Coote or Pandora for classic pieces that will stand the test of time.  

Angus & Coote Elite Rose Gold Tone Watch $149, Bras N Things Vamp Kenzie Swim Bandeau Top $69.99, Vamp Kenzie Swim Bottom $69.99, Jeanswest Lucille Scarf $29.99, Lovisa Stone and Tortoise Shell Drop Mixed Earring $17.99, Novo Shoes Insane Heel $59.95, Sportsgirl Zelda Mini Flared Heel $79.95, Sportsgirl Neck Tie $19.95.
