Disneyrollergirl trends to try for 2018 - Prada SS18 by Jason Lloyd-Evans for Wallpaper

There were many major fashion and beauty trends that dominated 2017. Sock trainers, ginormous puffer jackets, ultra matte lips, overpriced merch tees. I didn’t embrace a single one. But I did indulge in a classics revival or two. White denim, the Burberry check and western boots are a few that are still going strong.
