Fashion: Eight trends that are set to be big this spring
These are the colours, shades and silhouettes you need to know about, says Katie Wright
1. Pastel palette
Ice-cream hues were *everywhere* at the the SS18 fashion shows. Play down the sweetness of these sugary shades by wearing them in loose, mannish silhouettes.
2. Back to the 80s
Last season was all about 80s eveningwear but now uber-cool brands like Y/Project and Off-White are making the case for vintage casuals, meaning your must-buy of the season is a pair of faded mom jeans, the baggier the better.
:: Miss Selfridge Camel Cropped Sweatshirt, £20, and Mom Black Ditsy Embroidered Jeans, currently reduced to £33.60 from £42
3. Pencil skirts
The mini has been having a moment, but now the pencil takes over as the skirt of the season.
4. Uber brights
Even designers who usually favour a more modest colour palette went brilliantly bright for spring.
5. High shine
The current mania for healing crystals spilled over onto the SS18 catwalks, with shiny stones, transparent fabrics and smatterings of silver showing up.
6. Fringing and feathers
From fluffy feathers to long, swinging fringing, many of the season's stand-out looks came with edging that moved with the models - all the better to Boomerang, we reckon.
At Burberry, Christopher Bailey delved into the archives and sent out a host of traditional checks on coats and capes, while punky plaids ruled at Alexander McQueen.
Perhaps the most surprising sight on the SS18 catwalks? Cycling shorts.
