  1. Berets and baker boy caps.

The latest marker of a chic dresser, hats have become FANCY. If you don’t have one try Topshop or H&M

  1. Asymmetric skirts and dresses.

No, not the 2011 kind where your dress is unexplainably longer at the back. Think diagonal cut skirts, one shoulder tops, and dresses with uneven hems.

  1. 90s minimal.

Try a satin slip dresses, an oversized white shirt, check print everything. (Hit Egham High Street now to get your pick of the best charity shop gems)

  1. Daytime, casual glitter.

Because who doesn’t want to wear sparkles every day?

  1. Teddy coats.

The closest thing you can get to wearing a duvet to your 9am, these furry coats are here to stay.

  1. 60s florals.

Who doesn’t want to look like their nan’s curtains? For this trend, try pairing a large, bold floral blouse with a leather skirt, or clash it with a bright colour.

Pantone’s colour of 2018 is Ultra Violet, will we see a shift from millennial pink to millennial purple?

  1. Statement earrings.

Yes, you can still get away with those Pat Butcher-esque earrings.



  1. Dewy skin.

With the rise of cult brands like Glossier, this year is about healthy, glowing skin. Before your makeup start with a good skincare routine, and use an illuminating primer mixed into your foundation.

  1. Inclusive beauty

Following the example of Fenty Beauty in 2017, many brands will be looking ahead to this year by updating and extending their range of foundation and concealer shades.

  1. Cream face products.

It’s all about that base. Cream blusher, bronzer and highlighter will make your beauty routine super simple this year.

Windsor, 19th May. Get your finest on and get yourself to the castle, Harry’s getting married! Treat yourself to some roasted chicken and cry over the last handsome prince becoming unavailable.
