Fringe benefits for the year ahead!

Fringe benefits for the year ahead!

Happy New Year fashionistas! A new year calls for new fashion choices and shopping!

We bring you the top three fashion trends of 2018 which you need in your wardrobe to keep the fashionista tag.

Fringe calling

Get the Boomerang app ready! 2018's fashion forecast begins with an extremely fun trend. When done right, fringes are really cool, adding dimension and texture in all the right ways. So what are the best ways to incorporate fringes into your look? That's the fun part. There are no rules! Go crazy with colourful fringe skirts, dresses, fringe lined on satin slip dresses, fringe coats, thick leather fringe on mules, and big fringes on earrings.

Replace your everyday basic outfit with some fringed element to be trendy in 2018. Think 'The Great Gatsby'. Over the top is your keyword here.

If you are worried that fringe adds too much bulk to your outfit, keep all the elements in the same colour family to streamline your overall silhouette and downplay the extra texture. Fringing comes in all lengths and styles, so whether you go short and subtle or long and eccentric, there are plenty of ways to make this flexible trend work for your fashion persona.

Life in plastic

Chanel set the theme for 2018 with the PVC-dominated collection. From boots, coats to bags- everything came in clear plastic. From coloured vinyl to PVC – plastic is in!

Don't worry about looking like a raincoat even while not wearing one.

The translucent take on PVC updated with colours and prints makes it big this year. Pair statement vinyl pants with a chunky knit or mix masculine and feminine element- wear latex with ruffles. If you are afraid to put on an all-plastic outfit, start with a heel or bag.  

The trick is to pick a single element in PVC and complement it with simple and sophisticated pieces.

And the fanny pack is back...

Gone are the days when fanny packs brought fear of being reprimanded by the fashion police.

The once ugly travel companion has made a comeback in a cooler avatar. Spotted on Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Kendal Jenner, the fanny pack is back with a bang.

Instead of securing the bag around your waist, turn it into a crossbody by tossing it across your chest. You might have noticed several of fashion's 'it' girls already doing this.

The best part about the cross body fanny pack is that it's a trend that will make any and every outfit look ten times better.

Want to upgrade your usual white T-shirt and jeans uniform? Throw a fanny pack over one shoulder.

Need to add an unexpected twist to a ladylike dress? You can't go wrong rocking a dainty belt bag to one side.

It is super stylish, extremely versatile and will keep your hands free all day long.  

So what are you waiting for? Get dressed to rock 2018!
