Season after season, fashion’s ongoing enigma demands fresh answers: How does one actually wear the trends that dominated on the runway? Do those oversized daisy florals translate IRL? Is an extra-strappy lace-up sandals worth the extra effort? Is there such a thing as an earring that’s too dangly?
We enlisted three incredibly stylish people from industries far and wide—an actress, a model, and a museum executive—to help us out. Meet Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch, 23; Museum of Ice Cream exec Madison Utendahl, 26, and model Diana Veras, 22. They’ll be your guides to the seven trends we expect to see everywhere this spring. Aside from just showing you the best of what’s new, they offer up tips for incorporating of-the-moment items into real-life wardrobes. (Spoiler: For all three women, it involves some laid-back shoes, very cool accessories, and an IDGAF-attitude we all should try to emulate.)
When you mix the freshest faces with the best of new fashion, you’re left with pure style inspiration. Ahead, we narrow down the top seven trends of Spring 2018—and allow Petsch, Utendahl, and Veras to show (and tell!) you how to wear them.
