With the year coming to an end, it’s nearly impossible to find any motivation to still dress up for school. That’s why high school seniors who manage to wear clothes other than running shorts and a big t-shirt should be praised. And those who managed to remain stylish and trendy did not hold back. Here are the top 5 trends that were most prevalent from the class of 2018 fashionistas.

  1. Boyfriend-fit jeans: this blast from the past style of jeans has been making appearances in the hallways since the beginning of the year. What was first an unexpected trend in 2016 has turned into a staple piece by 2018. Who needs those uncomfortable skinny jeans when baggy comfortable boyfriend jeans are the new craze? Pair these bottoms with a basic, neutral-colored t-shirt, loose blouse, or a crop top for optimal style points.
  2. Gold star choker: plain black string chokers are SO last year. With gold jewelry and astrology symbols quickly coming into trend, it’s no surprise that gold star chokers are becoming more and more popular. First made popular by the brand Brandy Melville, this accessory can turn any simple outfit into a perfectly accessorized, stylish fit! Pair the necklace with any simple, unpatterned outfit such as a little black dress or a t-shirt with jeans.
  3. Huge horn necklaces: what was once probably the oddest style newcomer has come to be a staple in all fashion wardrobes. These natural-looking necklaces will turn any basic outfit into one that is almost overly trendy. Paired with a simple sundress or bohemian top, this piece of jewelry is guaranteed to make a statement in any room!

4. Fringe earrings: who said fringed tassels only belonged on  window curtains? These accessories are a sure fire way to pump up a simple outfit with either a pop of color or some texture! The best way to showcase this trend is with a neutral colored outfit and a brightly colored set of the earrings

5. Athletic sweatshirts: along with the boyfriend jeans, another style making a comeback is neon, printed athletic sweatshirts. It was only a few years ago that sweatshirt name brands, such as Champion, could easily be bought at your local Walmart. Now, similar types of clothing are constantly sold out at high end stores. The best way to rock this trend is with a pair of ripped jeans and athletic sneakers.

Styles and trend come and go, but the impact that the senior class leaves on their high school lives on forever. Whether it’s bringing back fashion from the past or sporting one that’s unique, this year’s senior class sure left their mark on the trends of 2018!
