Fashion To The Future!

I don’t know about you, but I am a massive fan of keeping up with the latest in fashion trends! Here are a few fashions which really seem like they are going to be HOT for summer 2018. 

Short Skirts

I don’t think there has been a single summer in recent memory where short skirts weren’t ‘in’. However denim skirts seem to be exceedingly popular right now. Pair a denim skirt with a brightly colored top and you are going to look far better than most of the women out there. I know that this is a style which I am going to be rocking a lot next summer.

If you are not a fan of the denim, then a nice, loose skirt will work wonders. For those who do not fancy having their legs on show constantly, you may want to pair your skirt with a nice pair of leggings. Choose a thin material to ensure that you do not overheat.

High-Low Dresses

When you want to look a touch more formal, then high-low dresses are the way to go. There are plenty of options out there. The one that I really see being ‘popular’ next summer will be floral patterns. In fact, floral patterns seem to be the rage every summer. If you are looking for something a bit trendier for those formal events, then a solid red or black color will work wonders.

Maxi Dresses

From what I can see trending, maxi dresses are going to be all the rage too. They are exceedingly comfortable to wear. They come in a variety of different styles as well. Now, I do not wear a maxi dress all that often. However, when I do, I like to opt for nice and bright colors, or maybe some unique patterns. Maxi dresses are not going to be terribly brilliant for formal events, but when you are looking for something more casual, you can’t really get much better than them.


Rompers seem to be making a comeback this year too. It seems to be simple colors that are all the rage at the moment. Sure, you can purchase rompers with floral patterns, but many of the women I have seen tend to go for single colors like reds and blues. At a push, you may opt for a striped pattern but this is really going to be at a push. You do not need to pair your rompers with anything that amazing. It is an ‘all in one’ outfit, after all. Sandals would really help to complete the outfit to be honest.


If you are looking for a fashion accessory beyond your clothing, then go for a tote. I know that they can be tough to carry around during the summer months, but they do look divine, and most women seem to be rocking them at the moment.

What Does It All Mean?

Simple is in ladies, classy yet not over the top, will always remain timeless. Remember these words next summer when you will be thanking me for all the great deals you managed to snag leading up to it, and as alway we at Department Express hope this article has helped in some way, thanks for reading!
