Must have fashion trends for Winter 2018
There are a variety of different looks that you must be aware of to help you stay on trend this Winter.
The Winter 2018 styles that we are going to touch on have already hit a variety of high street stores and fashion departments, so it is important to get your hands on them now before it’s too late!
The animal print fabric
An ever present of winter fashion that never fails to disappoint is animal print; whether it’s a leopard print pair of shoes or a zebra print coat, animal print garments are always a popular choice in the colder months.
Whatever print you decide to go for, if used correctly you are sure to make a statement with your style, for all the right reasons!
One fabric that you can’t go wrong with if you are trying to nail down that animal print style is the Leopard Print Peached Crepe. This gorgeous fabric has a beautiful smooth finish, making it perfect for a variety of different dressmaking projects. Check out the Leopard Print Peached Crepe fabric now!
70’s fashion has dominated numerous fashion trends this year so far, and it appears that this theme isn’t showing any signs of stopping.
One way to achieve that unique 70’s throwback theme is through various types of corduroy. There are a variety of different colours and patterns that you can use to make your Winter fashion project one to remember, however one fabric that we really think captures that 70’s vibe is the Corduroy Big Print.
Just imagine how amazing a flared trouser suit would look in that.
Our top 3 Winter 2018 colour trends
On top of hitting the right styles this Winter, another way of staying on top of this fall’s fashion trends is by striking the perfect colour combination. So, to help you in producing the hottest sewing projects for the coldest part of the year, the Fabrics Galore team have singled out three of the top colour trends for Winter 2018.
Pastel Blue and Spearmint Green fabric
If you want to include a brighter, more uplifting colour into your Winter sewing project whilst also staying on trend, then look no further than pastel blue and spearmint green.
In the past, this pastel blue colour has been more popular among the summer months in fashion, however more recently many top name designers have used pastel blues for their Winter releases.
Pastel blues look great when used with other pastel colours, and our Chambray Cornflower fabric has been continuously popular even into the cooler months possibly because of its classic preppy feel.
British Vogue described Spearmint green as “painting itself as the desirable hue of the season” even though it isn't classically considered a winter colour. Luckily Fabrics Galore have a great new linen viscose, Little People which is ideal for this wildcard hue.
Cherry red fabrics
A slightly more classical colour that is highly fashionable in Winter is cherry red. This dark shade is always a go-to colour at this time of the year, as it can effectively enhance your look within an instant.
If you’re looking to achieve that elegant feel, or maybe striving to create that retro look, then a deep red fabric can certainly help. Our super gorgeous Italian viscose crepe is made from the highest quality materials to create a super soft finish.
To add a touch of class to your Winter sewing project, take a closer look at our Double Viscose Crepe in claret now.
Mustard Yellow fabrics
Our final Winter fashion colour recommendation is the stunning shade of mustard yellow. This rich colour is ideal for many Winter dressmaking projects, as it can effectively uplift a variety of different classic patterns.
If you are looking for a mustard yellow fabric to help enhance your upcoming sewing project, then you’re in the right place. One great fabric we have in this colour is the Metallic Linen - Mustard, which with its slight glitter to it would make a great addition to any outfit for the party season.
