Trims, trims, and more trims! 2018 was filled to the brim with trims of every type. Some designers even made garments entirely out of trim! Let’s take a look at the top trims of 2018.
Fringe reigned supreme this year, hanging off of every type of garment. Alice + Olivia create a skirt with fringe all over it, and Elie Saab and MM6 Maison Margiela utilize the longest fringe possible. Missoni utilizes tiers of fringe for a stunning silhouette, while Pamella Roland simply accents a cocktail dress with fringe.
Figure it out with fringe:
Fur trim was stitched onto many of the garments that graced the runway this year. Collars were the most popular, seen in Sally LaPointe’s collection and Chanel. Sleeves were also popular for fur trim, like Roberto Cavalli’s and Fendi. Adam Lippes stepped out of the box with pockets made of fur trim.
Feel luxurious with faux fur:
Pleated garments were popular on the runway this season. Brooks Brothers utilized thicker pleats, while Versus Versace and Fendi used much smaller ones. Versace’s pleated skirt pairs beautifully with a puffy jacket, and Roberto Cavalli’s pleated leather skirt transitions into leopard print with so much ease, it’s as if they were made for each other.
Please with pleats:
Tiers of fabric were used on the runway, a beautiful detail that adds depth and texture to a garment. Erdem and Alice + Olivia use smaller tiers, almost like ruffled accents, while Cinq a Sept’s longer tiers add dramatic movement to the piece. Marissa Webb’s velvet dress was the cutest tiers, while Red Valentino’s tulle tiers give off an edgy ballerina look.
Be top tier with these fabrics:
