Two fashion weeks down — New York and London, that is — and two more to go! While Milan Fashion Week is officially kicking off with Alessandro Michele's Spring 2018 extravaganza for Gucci on Wednesday, let's take a look at which trends made the biggest impact on the runways across the pond.

Look forward to filling your wardrobe with the softer side of the color spectrum come spring. There will be plenty of sorbet shades to choose from.

The perfect DIY fashion project is one that's already made for you — well, if you don't have a flare for actually doing it yourself, that is.

If you're looking for an elegant way to wear something that looks like it's been recently sliced by sheers, the London collections have you covered.

The ripples of athleisure continue to evolve each season. For Spring 2018, expect to see a lot of drawstring dressing, and not just on your typical raincoat.

PINK AND RED

Typically considered a faux pas, styling red and (millennial) pink together got the rare thumbs up for spring. So romantic, no?

ALL-OVER SHEER

If you're looking to show a little, but not too much skin, then Spring 2018 may be the time to do it, thanks to outerwear and overlays made from peek-a-boo sheer materials.

RUFFLES

Tiered, delicate, and fluttery — just a few of the ways that ruffles came down the runways in London.

Making a statement is easy when you're covered in silver sequins. You'll be in luck come spring, as there will be plenty of options to choose from.
