Fashion trends on social media

One of the true benchmarks to all that’s fashionable must definitely stem from social media. Facebook, Pintrest, Instagram now accurately epitomize all things beloved by our fashionistas. In terms of fashion, the top-10 trends poised to be big in 2018 include items we’ve seen on the runway, on the red carpet, on the street, and on each other. The data is mined from over 200 million posts around the world, so it’s a pretty good gauge of what people want.

So here are 10 most popular fashion trends on social media.

Beret love

Indeed, berets tend to have a certain smarminess to them; a symbolic cliché if there ever was one. But it seems the slouchy little hat is making a play for the fashion crowd.


The bolder, the better. According to Pinterest, saves for logos are up 203 percent, with users wanting street-style inspiration that mixes brand iconography with elevated pieces.

Shiny shoes

Glitzy footwear will likely be everywhere come 2018; specifically shoes embellished with studs, pearls, and bold buckles.

See-through socks

2017 was all about the fishnet sock, and next year is all about see-through socks that are meant to be seen with pumps, sneakers, or sandals. In fact, saves for sheer socks is up 72 percent.

Massive earrings

Shelve the studs - people are obsessing over oversized hoops, structured metal earrings, and giant tassels, so expect to see them everywhere in 2018.


Slit skirts are the obvious choice, but this year people are also into tunics and midi dresses with slits, as well as pants that show slivers of skin. Most of us are feeling the classic side slit.

Patent leather, lucite, and PVC

Plastics were all over the 2018 runways in the form of slick patent leather and transparent lucite. Expect to see everything from boots to coats made from the shiny material come spring.


Long layers

Layering will always be a thing we do, but for 2018, we predict a massive influx of long layers. Think below-the-knee sweaters, jackets, kimonos, and dusters. Yep, people are getting that specific.

Wide legs

It seems we’re ready to give slim cuts a break next year, and embrace wide-legged bottoms and crops. Wide-legged garments go well paired with a fitted top and some more long layers. So why not?

Classic blue jeans

As far as denim has come, it seems we’re ready to go back to basics in 2018 with 100 percent cotton, classic blue jeans. Think relaxed Levi’s with a slightly high waist.
