Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 is All About Chic Casual Summer Style

Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 RTW collection is giving us beachy and vacation vibes but it’s so uninspiring at the same time. Here’s why!

Colorful and casual, this collection makes us want it to be summer already! The Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 show featured a wide range of summer casuals that are sure to set trends in the upcoming season! Quite retro-inspired with a modern twist, the looks are ideal for a beach-side vacation!

This brightly colored collection consisted of front-slit dresses, skirts and trousers with matching knotted fabric belts and pointy toe shoes. We also saw one-shoulder and cold-shoulder dresses and gowns with broad belts. Silhouettes like midi length dresses and off-shoulder dresses were the most prominent. Sheer was another popular element in the collection. The color palette included all sorts of fun and bright colors like lemon yellow, coral pink, watermelon red, sky blue and some metallics thrown in here and there as well.

Apart from the bright and colorful daytime looks, there were also a couple of nighttime dresses and gowns showcased towards the end of the show. We saw looks such as sequined dresses, tulle and sheer gowns, metallic dresses and full sleeved gowns.

Personally, I’m loving this particular look. It was my favorite from the collection. A casual, fitted denim dress with colorful buttons down the side and belted around the waist – so simple and casual yet makes a style statement! It’s paired with pointed-toe shoes and a pair of statement earrings.

However, it certainly isn’t Carolina Herrera’s best work to date. It really lacked the youthful vibe that her designs usually have. You can tell she’s going for this vintage vibe but it isn’t cool enough to make us want most of the looks. Checked patterns and weird color combinations are so twenty years ago. It may appeal to our grandmothers though.

Everything from the Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 collection is practical and wearable. Nothing too crazy or outrageous but at the same time it doesn’t excite or inspire us either.
