2018’s Best Fashion Icons and How to Steal Their Styles...


Margot Robbie

Leading lady, Margot Robbie, is definitely one to watch for her fashion choices in 2018 — but how can we get the look?

Daytime trends

Aussie girl Robbie easily merges a laid-back, beachy look with Hollywood-ready glamour. During the day, you can emulate her carefree style by pairing classic sneakers with cute playsuits. Go for a mini sweat dress with a retro backpack, and opt for a pair of ripped jeans or denim shorts with an oversized logo jumper. Floaty shirts and plain blue denim jeans with pumps or sandals is also a typical day-perfect outfit for this rising star.

Night-time trends

This girl is very versatile when it comes to what she wears and how she wears them. From sultry jumpsuits and boho tops to edgy garments and classic Tinseltown glamour, never shy away from getting creative with your evening outfits. Go for floor-length dresses created from ruffles and lace to create a romantic silhouette or try a single-colour, strapless mini design with matching shoes for a clean and crisp look that exudes femininity. Robbie wears monochrome palettes often, so have a collection of black and white pieces at your fingertips to get the same contemporary vibe.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is one of the world’s most loved superstars. Her music videos have been viewed more than nine billion times online and she has won three MTV Europe Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and four Grammy nominations over the course of her career. But not only is she a massive success in music, she’s also a force in the world of fashion.

Daytime trends

She’s the ultimate dresser when it comes to incorporating different feminine styles, switching from super cute and girly on one occasion, to uber-glamourous the next. Grande is a massive fan of cropped tops, but is also very skilled and showing the right amount of flesh. During the day, you could go for a short graphic tee with a pair of full-length, skinny jeans or opt for an oversized sweatshirt with cute, high-waisted denim shorts. Grande is definitely into her athleisure, and retro jumpers, trainers and leggings all fall under this on-trend umbrella. Distressed denim makes up a large part of Grande’s style, so make sure to incorporate plenty of light-wash denim shirts and frayed jackets into your daytime wardrobe.

Night-time trends

Flawlessly beautiful, Grande has a skill for flaunting her figure in a sophisticated and on-trend way. At night, ditch the casual cropped top for the more glamorous bralet. Whether you go for black lace or navy satin, pair yours with chic tapered trousers for a knock-out, evening-ready outfit. Grande has a petite figure and can really rock a cute playsuit or bandeau party dress. Get these styles and tweak them to match your personal taste — go for a floral motif with heels for a feminine appeal or try a metallic embellishment for a sassier, night-prepared look. Grande is very confident with her style, so don’t shy away from splashing your evening wardrobe with bold checks, bright colours and her signature over-the-knee boots!


Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid has many years of experience in modelling (did you know that she’s been modelling since she was two years old?!), so it’s no surprise that she’s a fashion icon to get on board with. To steal her look, you have to channel confidence and individualism, bringing pieces of the catwalk to each of your outfits.

Daytime trends

High fashion is practically in Hadid’s blood, even when she’s dressing casually. Try a neon puffer coat with jogging bottoms and pair of glam sunglasses or go for a plain top and distressed-denim jacket with a pair of chic, skinny patent leather trousers. Hadid is also a big fan of the athleisure trend, so incorporate plenty of cut-off sweatshirts, colourful leggings and sneakers into your wardrobe.

Night-time trends

Time to glam up? Not an issue for someone who oozes glitz and glamour. Faux fur and bold prints give Hadid’s look a twist of luxe fashion, and merging these with plain pieces — such as high-waisted black trousers and plain long trench coats —helps to emphasise each vibrant motif and fabric.
When it comes to dresses, opt for long hemlines instead of showing your legs — bare shoulders are in anyway. Go for tapered trousers with a corset-style top, but if you want to show more leg, the supermodel often flaunts her pins with a maxi slit dress for the perfect balance of seductiveness and sophistication.


Meghan Markle

Not long until the one-time Suits actress gets hitched to Prince Harry. Soon, Meghan Markle will be all over our screens — so, how do we get the soon-to-be-royal look?

Daytime trends

Of course, this lady has a lot of eyes on her from some very high places. So, how she dresses is vital. Markle typically wears long belted coats and heeled boots to create an attractive, but sophisticated silhouette, while more casual occasions — such as when she attended the Invictus Games with Prince Harry — often see her in a simple jeans and buttoned-down shirt combo.
If you think you need to be constantly demure and safe, you’re wrong. Markle still dresses to impress. For example, her outfit to Christmas lunch with the royal family was one of her most iconic fashion moments ever. The actress opted for a stunning, high-neck, midi dress in black to dine with her future in-laws. So, embrace bolder options.

Night-time trends

Markle is stunning, so it doesn’t take much for her to impress the cameras. In the evening, Markle is no stranger to cute shirt-dresses and daring off-the-shoulder numbers. However, her style centres on creating an imbalance — which means: if she wears a short hemline, she’ll compensate with a coat or long-sleeved top to cover her upper half. Similarly, if she feels like a strapless jumpsuit or low-cut dress is appropriate for the evening, she’d likely opt for full-leg or maxi lengths. Stay sophisticated, minimalist and modest — and remember to choose just one part of your figure to highlight.


Sofia Richie

With her fame growing in the UK, Sofia Richie is set to be a dark horse when it comes to fashion icons in 2018 and beyond. The American model and daughter of Lionel Richie has been a part of the celebrity circuit for many years, but is only recently becoming a one-to-watch in the fashion world…

Daytime trends

During the day, Richie’s style is popular, yet individual to her. You often see her photographed in cool hoodies paired with joggers or simple denim shorts matched with plain cropped tees. But that’s not to say she doesn’t dress up when dressing down. To get her look, take casual tops and trousers and accessorise them with heeled ankle boots, sunglasses and chic handbags. Richie is also a fan of different denim and knit styles. So, bring plenty of chunky jumpers and denims in all colours, waist-styles and washes into your daytime wardrobe.

Night-time trends

As a model, Richie knows how to spruce up for a night out — but have you ever noticed how much she adores trouser outfits? Get the look in the evening by creating a powerful, feminine look with block-colour culottes and a bralet or cami. Alternatively, you could go for tapered bottoms with a bodysuit to flaunt a gorgeous silhouette, or even rock a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans and cold-shoulder shirt with stiletto boots.
One more thing: don’t forget to accessorise when you’re emulating Sofia Richie’s style. Take a simple trousers-boots-and-top outfit and make it pop for an evening event with faux-fur coats, statement jewellery, suede clutches, and chunky belts. When it comes to evening dresses, Richie rarely goes conventional. Instead, opt for plunging necklines, chrome colours, asymmetric designs, and unusual textured embellishments to stand out.

Embrace SS18 by blending the above style advice into your wardrobe to inject celebrity glamour into your day and night looks.
