The David Jones runway show marks a change in the seasons every year. Although still held in winter, the spring summer showcase really gets us thinking about the warmer months and what we're going to be wearing come spring. It's a time to forget about coat shopping, and start dreaming up our perfect warm-weather wardrobe.
Held in Sydney's Fox Studios last night, the David Jones SS18 runway showcased the best upcoming trends, that we'll all be wearing very soon. Modelled by David Jones ambassadors Victoria Lee and Jessica Gomes, as well as local star Adut Akech, the pieces featured spanned from activewear to resort wear, Spring Racing, and everyday office attire.
In terms of the Spring Racing looks, it's clear that the trend this year will be midi-length cocktail dresses, incorporating feminine silhouettes and bold colour-blocking. For resort wear, it's all about neutral linens, wide leg pants and draped shirts.
One surprising trend was the Western-inspired looks. It seems we're taking the cowboy boot trend of winter into the next season with a lot of earthy-toned and soft-pink pieces, mixed with fringed crochet and beadwork. With this trend it's all about exotic prints, jungle flora and fauna, and a 1980s vibe.
Our overall favourite piece? It was the the khaki green dress by Bianca Spender, as seen below on Jessica Gomes. We can't wait to get our hands on this and wear it to the races next season. Read on to see some of the hero looks from our favourite designers at the David Jones Spring Summer 2018 runway.
