A variety of dress styles could be seen on the runway in 2018, but some stand out more than others. These dress trends will continue into the Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collections . From fabrics to silhouettes to styles, many different dresses graced the runway. Let’s take a look at the most popular styles that will continue to the end of 2018.
Denim has been the fabric of the year, regardless of the garment it’s been fashioned into. That being said, denim dresses are particularly stunning this year. Co went for a looser style, with puffed sleeves and a simple belt, where La Vie Rebecca Taylor went for a tighter approach, utilizing buttons and cut outs. Lorod’ s ruffle detail transitions back into the dress so fluidly, while See by Chloe’s ruffle really stands out. Ulla Johnson creates the perfect brunch ensemble with puffed sleeves and polka dots.

The pinafore dress is a simple staple that is sure to be popular this Fall 2018. Tomas Maier displays a utilitarian style one, utilizing straps to keep the dress together, and making sure the pockets are deep. This ensemble is perfect for festivals, relaxing in the shade of a tree while a folk band plays for a crowd, everything you need in the pockets of your pinafore dress. Ulla Johnson’s longer pinafore dress steps this style up, and it pairs beautiful with the blouse that’s over it. This garment is perfect for apartment hunting in Brooklyn, checking out the loft with the best view, or the one-bedroom closest to the best cafe in town.

Sweater dresses were everywhere this year, a beautiful juxtaposition of the comfort of a sweater and the elegance of a dress. Chanel goes for the basic style, a simple sweater long enough to be considered a dress, while other designers went for a more sophisticated style. Roberto Cavalli and Sportmax both created slinky designs, a twist on the sweater dress as most are loose and still cozy looking. Sachin & Babi seemed to have blended these styles together, as their dresses look loose and cozy, but elegant enough to wear to the opera.
