A Breakdown Of The Top 15 Greatest Trends Of 2018

If you are a fashion lover, your DNA is probably seeking to infuse its molecules with the next popular trend, or even predict what’s coming after that. This way, a ‘zombie’ version of you will get prepared for the shopping list and follow whatever trend is on our way.

Wanna see the latest trend? Bike around East Hampton or take a walk through Central Park. Oh, but you can also use some ‘scrolls down’ on your phone and all your question will be answered. It saves you time and effort.

But, have you ever dig into the psychology of following a trend? Well, following a trend, means following the majority, and following the majority is a survival trait. If you see the majority eating the red fruit, it’s likely to be safe. And, if no one eats the purple one, it’s probably poisonous. In a nutshell, this is a mental short-cut to help you avoid processing power to figure it out yourself.

The same goes especially with fashion or social media trends.
Even the idea that something is becoming a trend makes it more attractive to others. Only the idea that something is becoming a trend makes it more attractive to you. I would compare this to the comedies with canned laughter tracks. Doesn’t it kind of hijack your mind into making you much more likely to laugh at something which sounds funny to someone else too? Yeah, no matter how much we hate the canned ha-ha’s, they still work.

Getting back to the current trends we are following, below we have gathered some of the top trends of 2018. Keep scrolling and choose your favorite one:
