Trends for 2018 Fall

1. Hello Hygge

Hygge, the Danish quality of 'coziness and comfortable conviviality,'
is warming up the kids’ market with oversized silhouettes, chunky
knits, shearling accents, woven textiles and soft faux furs. Cowl neck
sweaters, relaxed beanies and ultra-soft scarves will make it easy to
get comfy under a flannel blanket after a long day of playing in the

2. All That Glitters 

Don't let anyone dull your sparkle—especially during Fall 2018.
Anything that shines is on trend, with rhinestones, sequins and glitter
galore! Reversible sequins are a particularly bright idea, covering
everything from pillows and journals to T-shirts and leggings.

3. Happily Ever After 

Unicorns, unicorns and more unicorns…It’s no surprise this
best-selling motif across children's and adult fashion is dominating
another season, with several kids'  collections continuing the magic to
include more fairy tale-inspired elements like mermaids, fairies,
dragons and castles.

4. Out of This World

After the new Star Wars film and last year's solar eclipse, designers
are still looking toward the sky. Stars, planets, rockets and aliens
are touching down on fall collections.  In addition, metallic accents
are commonly used to elevate galactic graphics for a sophisticated
statement that still remains young and fun.

5. Tone It Down

Think muted and minimalist. Over the past few
seasons, dusty rose has joined the palette of neutrals with several
other hues following suit. Hunkering down into a more relaxed and
versatile vibe include steel blues, lavenders and mossy greens.
 Minimalist graphics also team up with the toned down movement to
prove that less really is more.
