We have completed a round up of our predictions for the hottest trend for 2018. All of the trends can be found across the My Favourite Voucher Codes website with great savings and even better discounts in certain areas.
Fashion Forward to 2018
Kate Spade – 3 years ago your high street hadn’t heard of Michael Kors. Now you can’t turn around without seeing a bag or earrings without that instantly recognisable MK. This year expect to see fashion designer Kate Spade provide the high street with a range of high fashion items at high street prices. Why not check out the Kate Spade travel purse in purple with its sleek styling and uncomplicated practicality?
Sparkle and Copper Jewellery - Last Year’s autumn designers were splashing the sparkle around, from sparkly gym tops to full on two tone glitter stilettos from Schuh. Even for those less flashy of us you can add some glamour with a few sparkles on a hand bag, or just simply eye shadows and nail varnishes. Rose gold jewellery has kept its position from its 2016 heights right into 2018. But indications show beautiful copper gold starting to take hold. Through Rome fashion week 2017 we could see it creeping into designer fashion. Orangey in tones it will keep the opulence and elegance of the gold. But the strong orange tones will rival the pink tones of rose gold and maybe appeal to less girly girl women
Top Travel Destinations for 2018
Croatia - We started to see Croatia as a popular holiday destination last year. With up to 12 hours of sunshine in May and June, it’s easy access and beautiful scenery, there is something for everyone. Croatia can boast everything from Roman ruins and sunny beaches. It also has the magic word here at My Favourite Voucher Codes and that is “budget”. A holiday in Croatia isn’t expensive as a European country that doesn’t have the Euro; you won’t suffer the drop in the pound. Better still you can look to eat at a decent restaurant with wine for around £40. Why not take advantage of a self-catering holiday with James Villas and if you book your flight with them you can qualify for free car hire.
Arizona - If you are looking to go a bit further afield, have you thought about Arizona? Home of one of the seven wonders of the world “The Grand Canyon”. It is a place mixed with warm weather and natural beauty. A budget holiday can see you taking a motor home around the state or even hopping from budget motel to budget motel. You can take in the cities like Phoenix, the 5th largest city in America, or take in the cooler west coast with beautiful lakes and the Colorado River.
2018 Food Trends are All About Sharing
Middle Eastern – A bit of gamble but our prediction for culinary cuisine is Iranian and Moroccan food, not new to our shores but set to take the country by storm. 2018 will be the year to fill your boots on subtle but fragrant spices like cumin, turmeric and coriander. Plates of succulent kebab meats sizzling hot, accompanied with fluffy couscous, warm flat breads and lots of lots of cucumber raita, perfect for big sharing meals.
Sharing Boards – If 2017 was the year of bottomless brunches this new sharing and long lunch style eating is set to stay with menus harping back to the days of Martinis and Olives. With Millennials more concerned about ethical eating and bringing our children up on avocado and quinoa, the sharing board eats into our budgets, our time and our sense of fine dining. To spend a long evening nibbling on gourmet cheeses from grain fed cows, goats and sheep, not to mention eating delish meats cured on farms by handsome young farm boys. Couple this with yummy deep red wines and the ability to share an entire menu but at half the cost. My Favourite Voucher Codes restaurant pages will fill with the likes of Bella Italia and Zizzi’s sharing platters coupled with Italians wines and cocktails
Fake it in 2018 for your hot choice of drinks
Aperol – If in recent years you have not been wooed by prosecco or seduced by gin, then maybe an Aperol spritz is your cup of tea. This Italian based spirit is orange in colour and has an almost irn bru quality and look about it. This coming summer you can be sure that that the Aperol spritz will be a favourite on all cocktail menus and a regular in the supermarket offer aisles. We suggest that you try our favourite version of this cocktail.
Non-Alcoholic Cocktails: Millennials have been reported to state that they drink less, because they see being drunk as something old people do! 42% of Millennials reported that they drank less than they did 3 years ago, so in comes an influx of mocktails. Supermarkets all have a section in their aisles dedicated to lower calorie, low alcohol and even alcohol free. The co-op even offers a gin & tonic alcohol free in cans that is allowed on the popular Slimming World diet. Kopparberg offer their popular fruit ciders alco free. Expect to see a trend in the summer of youngster opting for low alcohol choices to enjoy the culture of socialising, but without the alcohol
2018 the Year of Designer Sports Wear and Bling
Athleisure – Maybe not quite so much sport but certainly Nike Store has taken Athleisure to a new level with a range of everyday wear that is wearable in the gym, but much better to see its beauty on the street. Gone are the days of Onesie’s in Tesco’s and hooded tops with joggers. 2018 will be the year that the mums in the playground will have stylish leggings and cute vest tops, all with matching trainers. A mixture of bright colours and designs can look as if you breezed through your latest workout having only just left the house
Virtual Races – Since the release of the NHS Couch to 5km, over 230,000 people have downloaded the app. With the popularity of a sport inevitably comes the hoard of related items you can purchase. 2017 saw the advent of the term “Race Bling” which for seasoned runners is already a known phenomenon or a crude one, but for us mere mortal runner it’s a show of our achievements and reason to stretch ourselves. The company Virtual Runner UK offers you the ability to complete a virtual race in your own time, at your own pace but usually over a certain distance. This company offers different themed medals each month and donates 20% to charity of every race bought. We predict that no one will get through 2018 without one virtual race, so why not give a little extra to charity.
