Burberry seemed to have a moment last year, its classic scottish tartan print seemed to be in flavour in a lot of styling. Many might consider this part of the “ugly aesthetic” wave but there's definitely a reason this classic pattern has remained through time and the Burberry have been able to brand a pattern.
Overcoats and long coats seemed to be an essential piece for style in 2018. Whether it was a pea coat, overcoat, plaid print or shaggy shearling coat this piece had me and a lot of others wishing it was winter all year long. Now I'm not talking about the guy in a t-shirt, jeans, chelsea boots and his new camel coat from H&M, no, the overcoat became the perfect piece for fashion heads style their wide trousers & chunky triple s sneakers while hanging around outside london fashion week hoping to get snapped and end up on High Snobiety. All jokes aside this look bangs and my personal favourite combination is an overcoat on top of a hoodie.
Logos divided the fashion community last year with many seeing logo laden clothing as part of “flex culture” and we can't deny that the Supreme x LV collaboration had a lot to do with this wave. For the most part this had a lot of us growing tired of seeing excessive red LV's plastered all over Instagram feeds from hypebeasts showing us how good they are at lining up outside of stores, and usually with money they made from reselling backdoored yeezy's for 4x the retail price or just with mommy and daddys credit card. Love them or hate them, monogram pieces were a big force with a lot of fashion houses releasing pieces, we saw it from Gucci, Louis Vuiton (both before Virgil Abloh's debut and after) Burberry and Fendi.
