6 Winter Fashion Trends We’re Loving in 2018

winter fashion trends Do the latest winter fashion trends make you excited about getting ready? Us too! We hope the following winter trends inspire you as much as they inspire all of us at Avenue Five Institute!

1. Messy Hair Don’t Care

Over the last few years we’ve watched hair styles go from super-polished to more wild and carefree. For instance, dark roots were once considered scrubby and now they’re stylish. And beauties of all shapes and sizes stopped straightening their curls, opting instead for big badass messy curls.

According to the experts, stylish hair is going to get even messier this year. So, instead of letting that rainy-day weather ruin your good hair day, let it help you achieve a naturally messy look!

2. Beautiful Braids

Braid a piece of hair to use as a crown, a pony tail holder, or just a cool accent in your hair. Don’t have a lot of hair to work with? Braid a clip-in hair extension, discreetly attach and then use as desired.

3. The Ribbon Pony

Short on time but want to create a slightly more polished look for your hair? Try the Ribbon Pony, one of our favorite winter fashion trends. Simply put your hair in a low ponytail and then tie a ribbon on top.

4. Shimmery Eyeshadows

Shimmery eyes are the perfect way to banish winter blues. Don’t stop with your eyelids, smudge sparkles into the inner creases of your eyes as well. Silver, gold, and other shades of glittery metallic are especially popular winter fashion trends this year.

The look featured below was achieved using Mud Cosmetics Tinsel Eye Color.

5. Moisturized Skin

Any winter trend can start to look a little flakey without properly hydrated skin. Take the time to moisturize your skin every night before bed, as well as before you apply makeup.

Not sure about the best product for your skin type? Visit Avenue Five Institute’s in-house beauty boutique to shop some of our favorite skin care products like Dermalogica, Hylunia, and Rhonda Allison.

6. Top Off Your Look with A Bold Coat

Let a beautifully bold coat keep you warm and stylish this winter. Black coats are classic, but how about trying something a little bolder this year? Like a red, royal blue or bright white coat. Don’t forget a decadent pair of OKB (over the knee boots) to top off your look.
