Bright Color-Blocking

Get the look: Eloquii skirt ($80); River Island boots ($84); Acne Studios skirt ($294)

Daytime Glitz

We saw the beginnings of this last year (remember these boots?), but 2018 is going to be the year that glitter and sequins cross over from dim dance floors to well-lit coffee shops. Worried you’ll look like a disco ball? Stick to muted tones and dressed-down accompaniments like sneaks and denim.

Get the look: Rachel Roy Curvy ($95); House of Harlow 1960 ($168); By Malene Birger ($495)

Get the look: Gap jacket ($148); Maje bag ($315); Stella McCartney skirt ($513)
