5 Try Me Trends for 2018 ✨💜

2017 saw a hint of faux fur, sparkles, suits and wide leg trousers making a much needed comeback.

2018 is here and it is time to have that much needed wardrobe clear out of everything you didn’t need in 2017 and definitely don’t need now.

Fresh off the catwalk from pre-fall 2018 Chanel tried to make leg warmers happen once more and Oscar de la Renta presented some very dreamy gowns, so if that is anything to go by it’s going to be a pretty good year in the fashion world.

To get you started, here is the Style Cloud guide to the top trends to watch out for this year…

Red, Red and more Red 💋

Vogue’s Charlotte Sinclair said: “Revolutions are ignited by it, the camera loves it and people go to court over it – no other colour has the extraordinary appeal of red.” The colour is bold, sexy and striking and that is everything a woman should feel going into the new year. Red coats are a particular favourite of mine as they can liven up even the dullest of outfits. Red accessories can be extremely important to an outfit, whether it is red shoes or red lipstick, red is definitely a contender for the colour of 2018.

Faux Fur

Faux fur coats are my favourite thing about winter, and the thought of carrying them over into 2018 is so exciting as they are better than ever. With new colours such as burgundy and even yellow faux fur, this coat has almost become a staple item in many wardrobes. Cropped faux fur coats and gilets are the ones to watch this year.

5. Kourtney Kardashian x PLT Fuchsia Faux Fur Coat – Pretty Little Thing – was £80 now £40

Paper Bag Waist

The paper bag waist is versatile and great for taking a simple top and creating a jumpsuit look with your outfit. It is also great for testing colours together, as a bold wide leg paper bag waist pair of trousers in a bright red colour can be paired with either a white or a black top. Watch this trend expand further in 2018 with it being seen as part of cigarette pants and suit trousers as well as wide leg.

Sparkle and Shine 💖 A trend that has been around forever is suddenly soaring in popularity. Metallic pants, metallic bags, metallic nails and sparkles everywhere. It is time to shine and wearing sequins and sparkles can make an outfit stand out in seconds. Lover of the sparkle? In all shades and styles, from gold to silver and everything in between, the shops are shining with them all. Missguided are particularly good at everything metallic.

Fringing is everywhere in Paris, trimming tops, dresses, jackets and bags on the runway, especially on the numbers from Balmain. Fringe is going to be a major 2018 trend and it can be started so easily. Start by adding a subtle tasseled accessory to your bag or outfit and then make your way up to big statement fringe pieces. Fringed bags are also continuing into the new year, so take note of this famous fashion trend.

Hottest Heels 👠🔥

Don’t let your footwear be the last thing on your mind when choosing an outfit!

You can make a bold impact with a pair of shoes and getting the right style for you and what you’re wearing is key. Whether it is a chunky heeled sandal for comfy everyday wear or thin stiletto, there are so many different styles to try and enjoy.

Stepping into the new season we have seen plenty of new footwear trends straight off the catwalk. The stiletto is still thriving as well as seventies-inspired styles such as embroidery, and the spring/summer 2017 shoes collections are full of colour, glitter and patterns galore.

It is said a girl can never have too many pairs of heels and the higher the heel the closer to heaven! But getting the right height, comfort, colour or style is sometimes tricky for a lot of people. Need new heels? Time to update your shoedrobe and get ready for some inspiration here on Style Cloud.

Strappy Heels

Strappy heels are great for something subtle and non overpowering for your outfit. They go well with a simple slip dress but also look great teamed with a pair of jeans and a top. A chunkier heel is my go to for a casual look but also makes them a lot comfier to wear, which is why they are great for a day out. A thinner heel makes the shoe a lot more elegant and look perfect with dresses or skirt and top combos.

(Top Right) Black Rounded Four Strap Barely There Heels – Missguided – £30

(Middle Right) Grey Comfort Triple Strap Back Block Heels – New Look – £25.99

(Bottom Right) Katie Double Band 2 Part Heels – Boohoo – £25

Lace Up Heels

The lace up trend has been around for quite a while now but I love it more than ever. Now spring is well and truly on its way we are seeing some new takes on this popular look, with not only the popular criss-cross style taking over but we can also see many with the tie around the ankle, taking it even further. Sometimes we even have lace up as high as the knee, but I have chosen not to include those as I want to focus on heels. Last season included skinny stilettos and metal eyelets, but we are now seeing a neater look with the tie up’s, rounded toes and a bolder block heel.

(Top Right) Julia Heels in Black Faux Suede – Public Desire – £29.99

(Bottom Left) Pink Tie Detail Shoe Boot – River Island – £48

(Bottom Right) Serenna Black Lace Up Sandals – Pretty Little Thing – £30

Court Heels

Pointed court shoes are the perfect way to look chic and sophisticated. They also dress up the simplest of outfits such as jeans and a top without looking too overdressed with the casual clothes. They are a timeless trend that are an elegant choice to enhance both your day and night look. Court shoes are now appearing in all colours, including stand out patterns such as leopard print and glitter. So, the choice is yours whether to stick with the traditional court or be courageous with your courts.

(Top Left) Lucy Pointed Glitter Sole Court – Boohoo – £22

(Bottom Left) Nicole Point Courts Black Nubuck Leather – Office – £68

(Top Right) Gamble High Point Court Shoes – Topshop – £56

(Middle Right) Macy Toe Cap Court Shoes – Topshop – £32

(Bottom Right) Public Desire Keeley Clear Detail Grey Court Shoes – ASOS – £29.99

Patterned Heels

A patterned heel is a statement piece for your outfit. It is often just the accessory you need to complete your look, whether this be a floral embroidery, a glitter cover or animal print, it needs to be the right pattern to suit what you’re wearing perfectly and make it even better. Your mood can often also determine which pattern you will choose, so a flirty floral pattern can add a girly element to your outfit or maybe a bold animal print to bring out your wild side!

(Bottom Left) Pink Marble Finish T-Bar Heeled Sandals – Missguided – £35

(Top Right) Black Snake Skin Print Strappy Heels – River Island – £45

(Middle Right) Onto Point Court Rose Gold Glitter – Office – £68

(Bottom Right) Black Suedette Embroidered Heels – New Look – £29.99

Fur Heels

Fur embellished heels are everywhere at the moment, and I love them! From Gigi Hadid to Kim Kardashian, this trend is popular and I think there are definitely more styles to come. Not only have we got fur lined straps, but we now see, straight off the catwalk, heels with fur foot beds, adding extra comfort to your heels. So, love it or loathe it, the fur footwear trend is here to stay.

(Top Left) Darcy Faux Fur Lined Two Part Heels – Boohoo – £28

(Bottom Left) Vinnie Faux Fur Footbed Sandals – Topshop – £52

(Top Right) Faux Fur Vamp Sandals – Zara – £39.99

(Bottom Right) Black Fluffy Vamp Strap Barely There Heeled Sandals – Missguided – £35

Peep Toe Heels

Peep toe heels are a favourite of mine not only for at night but also in the day with a t-shirt and a pair of jeans. They are back and better than ever, but how do you style this trend? Thin stiletto heels are a contrast with the block coverage of the shoe, so these are a good pair for a classy night look. A block heel is a lot bolder and can sometimes act as more of a shoe boot, so these are perfect for in the day as they can be very comfy. It is all about choosing the right heel to compliment your outfit with the full coverage over the foot.

(Top Left) Khaki Peep Toe Block Heel Shoe Boots – River Island – £50

(Middle Left) Blue Suedette Peep Toe Heeled Sandals – New Look – £29.99

(Bottom Left) Open Toe High Heel Ankle Boots – Zara – £19.99

(Top Right) Noelle Nude Elastic Detail Heeled Sandals – Pretty Little Thing – £35

(Bottom Right) Khaki Suedette Ankle Strap Open Toe Heels – New Look – £27.99

Here are some more of the hottest heels around…

Amanda Lace Up Peep Toe Heel in Black Faux Suede – Ego – £29.99

Faith Light Blue ‘Chloe’ High Court Shoes – Debenhams – £35

Brit Awards 2017 🎤✨


Yet another award ceremony has been and gone. The Brit Awards are always a favourite before the upcoming BAFTA’s and the Oscars.

This year’s Brits saw some of the biggest celebs and names in music come together in London with fashion to rival the recent Grammys. With stars such as Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora walking the red carpet, the glitz and the glamour was there from the very beginning, and it was all about to get a whole lot more spectacular!


Ed Sheeran and Stormzy

With enough shock outfits and shock wins to bring the house down (quite literally in Katy Perry’s performance), the night was full of show-stopping performances, including the most unexpected but amazing combination of Ed Sheeran and Stormzy. Beyoncé and Adele won more awards (of course!) and Little Mix took home one of the biggest prizes for their single ‘Shout Out to My Ex’.


Little Mix

After London Fashion Week came to an end on Tuesday, stars pulled out all the stops to become best dressed when the attention shifted to the 02 Arena on Wednesday night. Here are some of my favourite looks from the night…

Glamour at the Grammys 📀👠



The red carpet at the Grammys is always full of fashion explosions, experiments and all round glamour. This year the celebs definitely did not hold back on their outfit choices!

The 59th Annual Grammy award nominees and long line of A-listers were out in force. Adele and Beyoncé were in the spotlight from the start with their head-to-head nominations in not one but four categories, including Album and Record of the Year. With Adele’s speech came drama and hilarity, after it appeared she broke her award in two for ‘her winner’ Beyoncé! A pregnant Beyoncé delivered a powerful performance as usual and the drama definitely did not end there.


Lady Gaga

The Grammys is often a place for risks, and this year was certainly very risky. Stars hit the red carpet for the event in a collection of some outrageous outfits, and for the first time Lady Gaga was not the riskiest look of the night!



Halsey arrived at the event bra-less in a sapphire blue silk suit that was just waiting for a wardrobe malfunction to happen. Singer Jacqueline Van Bierk also turned up in a dress covered in CD’s, so for once Gaga was pretty low key.

However, with all award ceremonies there are the glamorous and they did not disappoint on this occasion. Here are a few of my favourite looks from the night…💁🏽

The Golden Globes 2017 marked the start of the awards season on Sunday and at the 74th annual event, the A-listers did not disappoint with their red carpet looks. The night was presented by The Tonight Show’s host Jimmy Fallon, after previous years have seen Ricky Gervais and comedy double act Tina Fey and Amy Poehler take on the job.

The night was full of surprises and highlights included some ever so dedicated speeches. Ryan Gosling chose to dedicate his acceptance speech to his wife, Eva Mendes, while guest of honour Meryl Streep went in on Donald Trump in a truly fabulous way whilst giving her acceptance speech for the prestigious Cecil B.

Captured in Cannes: Week One 📸

Cover Photo

Week two of the 69th annual film festival in Cannes has begun and it is time to take a look back at the amazing outfits worn in week one. The overseas occasion always offers major inspiration, with the best dressed stepping out in force.

Upcoming films such as The BFG, Loving and American Honey were featured, with the stars turning out for all. There was no shortage of glamour in the first week of the festival, with some of the chicest red carpet looks of the year. Here are some of my favourites that shone in the French sunshine…

Blake Lively

Blake Lively

With a peering baby bump, Blake has looked glowing in a range of outfits at the festival. From sequin gown’s to a casual day dress and even looking like a real life Cinderella, Blake looked flawless in every item worn. In particular, her red jumpsuit is one of my favourite looks of the year so far. Taking such a simple and easy look but making it amazingly stylish, Blake is a style icon and definitely best dressed in Cannes.

Cheryl Cole

Cheryl Cole

Since her recent divorce, Cheryl has been out of the fashion spotlight and I am so glad to see her back and looking so happy. Walking out with new boyfriend, Liam Payne, in Cannes for the first time as a couple made her glow and look as beautiful as ever. It was all about the patterns with the former X Factor judge as she stepped out in a patterned gown and sequinned stripe jumpsuit.

Doutzen Kroes

Doutzen Kroes

This all black outfit is perfect for Doutzen. The Dutch model and actress went for a sultry halter neck look and refined shape which is just right for the red carpet. The former Victoria’s Secret model’s dress connected a velvet top to a flowing split skirt

Bella Hadid 

Bella Hadid

Bella recently won Model of the Year at the Daily Front Row’s Fashion LA Awards and in Cannes she showed us all the reason why. This elegant nude dress matched with her skin tone perfectly, along with her dark locks that tied the whole outfit together. The 19-year-old accessorised the outfit with a silver choker by De Grisogono.
