Every Major Runway Trend From Fashion Week Australia

Fashion Week Australia is in full swing and as we expected, it’s opening our eyes to new trends we're excited to trial this spring. So many of the big seasonal trends start on the runway, and we’re betting that you’ll begin to see these styles on the cement runway before you know it. 

From pastel hues to extra-long sleeves, these styles are sure to win over your hearts—if they haven’t already. If fresh outfit inspiration is what you’re after, you can start adopting some of these new-season trends now. Chances are you have at least one or two in your wardrobe already—you can just pick up a new styling trick or two. Read on to discover (and pin) the biggest Fashion Week Australia runway trends, below. 

Checks have been trending for a while with the infamous checked blazer, and the trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere soon. On blazers, skirts and dresses, checks are scattering the Fashion Week Australia runway just as strongly as ever.

Bold colours and prints have been taking over this season, but we haven't seen the trend looking quite this fresh yet. Mixing bright, loud prints is the new way to amp up an outfit.

This earthy hue is a little more subdued than other colour trends of 2018, but it's already winning over our hearts. Simple and sophisticated, yet still fresh moss green is sure to be everywhere this upcoming season.
