Don't get left in the past. We're already looking forward to all of the 2018 fashion trends that will keep us up on our style game. Thank the biggest designers for setting the tone last September and giving us a sneak peek at what's to come in the new year. There's something for everyone: think a attention-grabbing fabrics and futuristic silhouettes that will make you feel like you're on The Jetsons (in a good way, of course).

But don't totally disrespect 2017—we're still holding on to some key trends, but we're breathing new life into the motifs with a modern makeover. Find out exactly how it's done in our 2018 fashion trend roundup below.
1. Parachute Belts
Strap up with a sporty belt that will be all over your favorite street-style star's Instagram feed before you know it. You don't have to be a fitness fanatic to get in on this athletic trend. Balance out the sporty piece with a blazer dress—like model Nina Agdal did for the Whyte Studio presentation (above center).

2. Wild West
Let your inner cowgirl run wild in 2018. Selena Gomez already took the Western-inspired outfit from Versace (above center) for a spin on the red carpet. Something as simple as adding a gold buckle belt to your classic jeans can help you get in the ranch-ready mindset.

Now is not the time to be shy. Show off a little skin with tulle pieces. You don't have to go all #FreeTheNipple on Instagram like the model (above center) at Harlem Fashion Row's presentation. The trend looks just as bomb layered with crop tops, slip dresses, and fancy undergarments.

4. Patent Leather
Get ready to see wet-looking leather all over the place. Black isn't the only color that's getting the patent-leather makeover. You'll find the show-stopping fabric in red and more fun colors in 2018.

5. Shining Stars
You'll be reaching for sparkling pieces long after New Year's day. Fashion houses like Gucci (above left) made sequins daytime appropriate by layering dresses with white T-shirts. Pair your sparkly tops with jeans and sneakers for an instant cool-girl vibe.

6. Puff Up
8. Dramatic Gloves
Want to get away with wearing short-sleeve dresses and tops in the winter? Long gloves will help you get through the chilly temperatures in style. For the fashion risk takers, go with one over-the-top mitt like the models at the Rick Owens presentation (above left).

10. Remixed Prints
Shake things up with bold, contrasting prints. Not sure where to start? Play it safe by sticking to a uniform color palette for various patterns—like at Burberry's show (above left). Or test out the same print in multiple tones—like the plaid number at Mary Katrantzou's presentation (top right). The easiest way to get the job done is to cop a dress that does all of the work for you.

15. Fluffy Feathers
Makeover your basic button-down shirts with wispy feathers—like the models at the Nina Ricci show (above center). Or go all out with fluffy boots similar to the ones shown at Saint Laurent's. Either way, you'll be spot on with the 2018 fashion trends.
