The 17 Biggest Fashion Moments of 2018

The fashion industry is in a constant state of flux, from shifting markets to creative directors to trends. Still, you can always identify a handful of themes that set the tone for any given year. In 2018, an increased urgency in the social and political climate led to more slogans and activism on the runway and in retail; the First Lady's controversial wardrobe opened up a conversation about optics; size representation continued to be a major push across the board and proved to be an obstacle for some. It might take a minute to remember some of these milestone events. (Can you believe the red carpet "blackout" was at this year's Golden Globes?) Others are still fresh in our memories (the Royal Wedding!) or in the broader fashion zeitgeist (where do we stand on Dolce & Gabbana?)

But they all played a part in how we talked and thought about fashion in 2018. And, if Pinterest can predict what we'll be wearing in the new year based on what we searched for this year, odds are we'll still be talking and thinking about these moments in 2019. Before looking ahead, revisit the headlines that defined fashion in 2018.
