20 Of 2018's Biggest Trends

With every year comes an entire collection of fashion trends to get in on. With these, we're not talking your typical wardrobe essentials: We're talking about the items that will come to define the year; the ones that dominated the runways, trickled down to fast-fashion, and infiltrated store shelves across the globe. These are the trends that will have a lasting effect on the industry, meaning they're almost guaranteed to have staying power as time goes on.
From the power suits that helped women reclaim their power to the orthopedic-style sneakers that saved our feet during Fashion Month, these are the 20 items that bubbled to the top of the trend charts and will likely be sticking around for the entirety of 2018 (and beyond).
