If you’ve been thinking ‘my life just isn’t 2018 enough’, well thank your lucky cornflakes because we’ve got a list of 10 top trends that will bring your style up to the second. From old-school terrazzo (with a new-school twist) to geometric wall art and must-sip brews, these trends have got everyone talking (when they’re not talking about Married At First Sight…).
1. Terrazzo’s trending
Playful, cool and with a look like confetti, ’60s-style terrazzo has moved beyond countertops and floors to feature on plant pots, clocks and yoga mats.
2. On the fringe
Your clothes and interiors are about to get a swingy update with flapper-style fringing walking right off the international runways and into our homes.
3. The colour purple
Pantone called it when they announced their colour of year: Ultra Violet. This year will be all about embracing vibrant purple hues and soft shades of lavender and lilac.
4. One and done
Good news for low-fuss fashion lovers everywhere, the jumpsuit is coming back in full force. Simple and easy to wear, this one-piece will be your 2018 style staple.
5. Super-size me
Drama, drama, drama! When it comes to accessories this year, think big and bold. From chunky necklaces to ear chandeliers, your statement-makers will do all the talking.
6. Eco warrior
From reusable coffee cups to stainless steel water bottles and canvas shopping bags, being environmentally friendly and saying adios to waste has never looked so good.
7. Making shapes
Update your home gallery with abstract geometric art – from large canvas pieces to smaller ready-to-frame prints, it’s a simple but eye-catching addition to your walls.
8. Animal attraction
Don’t take your interiors too seriously! Quirky animal-inspired homewares add a light-hearted and surprising element to your space.
9. Rattan revival
Remember when rattan chairs were exclusive to old people’s homes and council collections? Well, rattan has been resurrected and woven pieces are everywhere.
10. Time for tea
Your daily cuppa is more than just a chance to take five – with healing herbal brews and green teas more popular than ever, it could also be a chance to nourish and rejuvenate.
