My experience with fashion trends has felt like we’ve all been taken on a wild rollercoaster, that includes futuristic fashion trends. Over the last year, fashion designers have taken inspiration from every corner of the world; from nature’s rawness, animal instincts, throwback trends and the latest? Totally out of this world.
To round up 2018 we’re on a journey to discover the futuristic fashion trend where every-day pieces have been injected with glossy fabrics, star-studded detailing and extra-terrestrial prints. As millennials look towards futuristic clothing they recognize that there is no longer place for gender in fashion, so everyone take note, scroll to find out how you can get on board with the trend.
Hardly surprising, right? What futuristic clothing trend wouldn’t over indulge in metallics? Although Fall prints trends are typically centered around the magical change in seasons and explosion of Autumnal colors, the futuristic fashion trend is all about glossy fabrics, polished materials, and foil metallics.
All in the details: Sequins

If an extraterrestrial trend was to take inspiration from nature what better animal than the prehistoric? The snake print trend which has creeped into popularity pefectly suits the futuristic clothing and colors of this seasons trend.

The Art of Extreme layering
It obviously couldn't have emerged at a better time, layering is one of the keys of success to enjoying the cooler seasons. This year, designers have taken layering to the extreme as oversized pieces are paired with deconstructed under-layers. You've all seen the Balenciaga/Joey meme for inspiration whether you carefully color-coordinate every piece or throw on a mish-mash of items, all is fair in love and war.
Obviously, as we move into cooler months boots become a popular choice of footwear. In particular, metallic shiney pairs and white boots (clinging onto the 80's) are trendy choices. Additionally, sneakers are going to continue to be first pick for many of us, so check out the velro-strap styles, sock sneakers and chunky sneakers - specifically, what is Gucci up to with the Flashtrek sneakers?!
