Collage Vintage

One of the great things about a brand-new year is that it provides an opportunity for a fresh start. And yes, that includes your sartorial choices. While in one year you might be more inclined to test out all of the trends, in another year you might want to step back to reevaluate your style.

This also applies to fashion editors, who are very often trying out trends they’re seeing in the market. Interested to find out which pieces Who What Wear’s very own editors are ditching and the ones they’re excited to try when 2018 rolls around? Good news: They’re sharing them ahead. While pieces like off-the-shoulder tops and fishnet tights are being pushed to the back of the closet, they’re welcoming new trends like tops with asymmetrical cutouts and the lavender pieces that took the S/S 18 runways by storm.

Go on to see which items they’ll be giving up in the New Year and the trends they can’t wait to try.


"As much as I still love the dusty pink that dominated this year, I'm excited to bring a full rotation of new hues into my wardrobe. Rich yellows, bright greens—nothing is off-limits!"

"Even though I didn't fully embrace it in the first place, I'm moving on from the fishnet trend. On the other hand, I'm very much looking forward to wearing lavender in 2018. It's been my favorite color since I knew what colors were."

"While I do find off-the-shoulder styles appealing from time to time, I'm totally fine with giving them up for a bit in the New Year. They had a big moment, but I'm ready for a break. With that said, I'm still all about a pretty, vintage-inspired blouse, especially one with an interesting, oversize sleeve. I think it's just as charming as off-the-shoulder and—bonus—there's no strapless bra required."

"I am so over off-the-shoulder tops. I think I went a little too hard on the trend two years ago and am now burnt out. But 2018 trends are looking amazing, and I can't wait for spring to roll around so I can start wearing pastel colors. I'm most excited for lavender, but this light-blue frilly minidress from Ganni also has me wide-eyed."

"After moving to New York, I have a newfound appreciation for not just sneakers but stylish ones. On that note, in 2018, I'll be ditching my old worn-out pair in favor of something new and on-trend. At the moment, Balenciaga's sock style is the top contender."


"Ditching: Worn-out blazers. Instead, I plan to stock up on unique blazers like the below oversize denim shirtdress one."

"I'm giving up boring black workout clothes and trying out some interesting activewear trends for 2018. Exhibit A: the corset trend, as perfected by Jonathan Simkhai x Carbon38."

"Next year, I'll be retiring my off-the-shoulder tops and instead be introducing more modern necklines into my rotation of going-out tops, like this one with offbeat asymmetrical cutouts."

"I'm ready to retire off-the-shoulder tops. Right now, I'm in a minimalist mode and building out a closet of cool classic staples like this skirt."
