I’ve been having a field day watching all of the fashion shows and fashion week festivities as they jump from New York to London to Paris. Below, my absolute favorite micro-trends — plus how to get the look…
AW18 Microtrend 1: Marigold.
Marigold was EVERYWHERE on the runway — from Mansur Gavriel (top) to Oscar (middle) to Carolina Herrera (bottom). I especially love it paired with pastel blue (more on that later).

THIS BALLOON-SLEEVED SWEATER (LOVE)
A FUN EMBELLISHED HEADBAND (I’D PAIR WITH A CRISP WHITE DRESS/BUTTON-DOWN AND LOAFERS TO TONE DOWN THE PRINCESS-Y-NESS)
AW18 Microtrend 2: Feathers.
I was drooling over the 1960s Holly Golightly vibe at Marc Jacobs — especially the marigold feathered number seen below (top). Stunning. Feathers were also prominent at Oscar de la Renta (second from top), Attico (third from top), and Brock collection (bottom).

THIS SPLASHY BLOUSE (FOR A NIGHT OUT! AMAZING!)
AW18 Microtrend 3: Fuzzy Sweaters.
I know I saw them elsewhere, but can only come up with the snap below of street style starlet Jenny Walton wearing a fuzzy mohair sweater — and man is she darling in it! (She made the skirt!!!)

AW18 Microtrend 4: The 80s.
I’ll admit I’m a little skeptical of the return of the 80s, but there was a LOT of it on the runways — both in the form of neon colors and amped up dramatic dresses straight from 1984. Below, snaps from Prada (top), Brandon Maxwell (second from top), Oscar (again — third from top), and Prabal Gurung.

THIS SKIRT (LOOKS LIKE PRADA BUT COSTS FAR LESS)
THIS ASYMMETRIC DRESS ($100 AND SO BADASS)
AW18 Microtrend 5: Ice Blue.
Finally, I saw a ton of the most elegant, ladylike ice blue color, including at Brock Collection (top), Erdem (second from top), Mansur Gavriel (third from top), and Rodarte (bottom).
