According to global fashion search platform Lyst’s fashion report of the year, power suits were bigger than ever in 2018, worn by the likes of Meghan Markle and Blake Lively.

Meanwhile on the other end of the scale, bondage-inspired outfits and nude ensembles have been go-to outfits for everyone from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley to the Hadid sisters. 

Elsewhere lively logo prints like the coordinating Fendi ensemble Kylie Jenner wore recently which matched her pram, are also all the rage. 

And bringing back another nostalgic trend from the eighties, bike shorts have taken over our Instagram feeds, seen on the likes of the Kardashians and catwalk models.
