Carolina Herrera SS18
Spring Summer 18 is in full swing, the heat is on (in the Middle East mainly), and it’s finally time to shed those layers and kick on our summer shoes.
And as much as we are already looking forward to rocking all those AW18 trends, post fashion week, the weather will not permit it, so we’ve put together the modest wear must have trends to get you through the current season!
From Gucci to Victoria Beckham, the SS18 runways were our inspiration for modest wear styles in a fun kaleidoscope of print and textures.
Despite a small selection of non-modest-friendly trends (sheer fabrics and short shorts), modest dressing remained an overtly clear influence across many designer runways. Midi skirts still reign supreme in the style stakes alongside elevated trench coats and ethereal floaty fabrics.
From tailoring, layering slip dresses, co-ords and sequins, these are the looks to covet ASAP!
Embellishment and extravagant trims, fringing and feathers, are the key details to luxe up your look this season and even better when you layer different textures and prints for a real bohemian vibe.

Fashion made a salute to modesty once again this season and lets be honest, what is summer dressing without a statement midi skirt? From Fendi to Carolina Herrera, the midi skirt, in any fabric from leather to floaty chiffon, was styled up with oversized tailoring or down with slouchy knitwear…

The Elevated Trench
Trench coats stole the show as the outerwear of the season for this spring summer. The wardrobe classic was deconstructed, and re-styled – runway shows saw added prints and embellishments.
A real modern twist on a classic.
Loewe, Alexander McQueen, Maison Margiela
A trend that returns ever spring summer season, only this year in a BIG way. The difference this season is the trend of layering a single pastel tone. Wear as tailored co-ords, or layer similar colours in mixed fabrics.
Michael Kors, Badgley Mischka, Victoria Beckham
A glitzy knit can take you just as far as a sequined gown; sequin numbers were a strong focus across many shows this season. Never taking anything too seriously, looks from Gucci, Ashish and Marc Jacobs took the party vibe to new heights for the summer.
