In our experience, the best way to make it through Blue Monday is to embrace the positives and for us, that means looking ahead to what we will be wearing in a few months and planning how we’ll make the trends work with what is already in our wardrobes.


Nothing excites us quite so much as the new arrivals to our rails, especially when they mark the start of shopping next season’s trends now. In the name of satisfying your thirst for fashion, and bringing some sunshine to your Blue Monday, here’s our guide to the trends you’ll be seeing more of in 2018.

Heirloom Jewels

It’s time to raid the family heirlooms, because next season’s accessories are big, bold, dripping with gemstones and enough to turn an outfit around in themselves. Never underestimate the power of a Soru statement earring in taking your jeans and tee from drab to fab. Make like the aristocracy and wear chandelier earrings on the most ordinary of days; you’ll be amazed at how a crystal or ten can put a spring in your step on a Monday morning.  

Dark Denim

In recent seasons past, smart dark denim has found itself languishing in the back of our wardrobes, replaced with torn knees, raw hems and vintage washes, but no more. Indigo is back with a bang for SS18 and it’s all down to the Nineties obsession that swept the catwalks and kicked last season’s Seventies trend to the kerb. Our denim this summer will be dark indigo, perfectly tailored, and without a rip in sight. Jacob Cohen and True Religion’s darkest washes will do just the job.

Super Sheer

While we’re not entirely on board with the emerging trend for transparent plastic rain macs, sheer shirts in soft chiffons we can do. Unlike some of the examples seen on the catwalks last Fashion Week, Emporio Armani’s planet print shirt and Michael Kors’ star print versions are both just sheer enough to hint at what lies beneath, without breaking any decency laws.  

OTT Heels

There is no room for boring shoes in 2018. With the world faced with another year of uncertainty, the fashion world is putting a smile on people’s faces the best way it knows how; with really amazing accessories. Court shoes are higher than ever, clad in velvet or satin, and bejewelled to within an inch of their lives. Juxtaposed with jeans they say ‘I know my fashion, but I like my comfort too’.

Spring Checks

We love to see a new season take on last season’s big trend. This time around, it is checks. Last year was all about the masculine checked blazer but we’re seeing a softer print for spring/summer, from girly gingham to bold picnic blanket prints on flirty dresses.

You can shop next season’s trends now at Robinsons, with new SS18 styles from Michael Kors, Emporio Armani, Boutique Moschino and more available in store now. Find us at DN10 6JH with FREE parking available right outside the store.



It isn’t easy heading back to work after the Christmas holidays. The skies are grey, the mornings are cold, and an abundance of mince pies and free-flowing fizz has left your working wardrobe feeling a little, shall we say, restrictive. Getting the groove back in your weekday wardrobe doesn’t have to mean a full-on sweep of the sales rails. In fact, it can be as easy as adding a pop of colour to your usual black, navy or grey get ups.


Red is a bold choice for the office but we think this scoop-neck, basket weave dress by Emporio Armani will bring the power back to the boardroom at that next big meeting. A professional-appropriate scoop neckline, mid length and basket weave texture will make the smart shift perfect for days that take you from your desk to meetings and on to evening dinners. Michael Kors court shoes and a blazer will up the business ante, while flat pumps and a chic scarf or cashmere cardigan will dress down the look for more laidback days.

There’s a new print in town for 2018 and it’s out of this world. It’s written in the stars, or rather, printed in them. Moons too, and planets, all of which are lining up to send your style soaring into the stratosphere.


It started with this Michael Kors Chiffon Tie Neck Dress, monochrome and printed with an intergalactic smattering of stars in a constellation created to draw attention to your waist and flirty, flippy hemline. The Michael Kors Shooting Star Tie Neck Shirt gives us stars in our eyes too, akin to those of the rock stars we imagine wearing it with A-line leather skirts and perfect-fit denim.


This isn’t a trend reserved for Michael Kors, of course. Emporio Armani is taking us to infinity and beyond with prints that take us all the way past the planets. The sun, moon, stars and Saturn on these pieces are playful, bold on t-shirts and bright on a frill-hemmed chiffon shirt. The only thing standing between you and an out-of-this-world look is your favourite jeans.

Reach for the stars next season and start planning your interstellar outfits. Shop new season pieces by Michael Kors, Emporio Armani and more of the world’s leading designers in store now at Robinsons. We’re open 7 days a week, with FREE parking right outside our Bawtry store.
