Ola amigos, my name is Maria and I’m a style, beauty, and travel blogger. I’m so excited I got the chance to come together with Jessica and create a collaboration. Being a guest writer for each other’s blogs is a great way to connect with different audiences, especially because we’re from different countries! I hope you enjoy the 2018 trends for Brazil, and maybe be inspired for your own style! If you would like to see more posts and join me on my adventure of moving from Canada to Brazil, my blog is www.brazilianflare.com. Below is my post on trends for Brazil. Enjoy, beijos!
Another year, another start for trends. After reading Vogue and other magazines I was able to see what was going to be big for 2018 in North America and Europe. But then I realized that I’m not in North America anymore, I’m in Brazil! This got me thinking whether the trends are different or not from North America. Turns out there isn’t a massive difference. Brazil seems to be behind with the trends, for example, Boho chic is no more a trend for North America and Europe, but for Brazil, it’s one of the hot trends for 2018. I am not sure why the new trends come to Brazil a little later, maybe due to the fact that the seasons are the complete opposite. For Brazilians who are up to date with the North American and European trends and sad to see some of them gone for 2018, we will be happy that the fashion industry can continue with it for a while longer.
Here are the top Brazilian trends for 2018. I made 3 lists, What’s in for Brazil but Out for North America, What’s in for Both, and What’s in for North America/Europe.

The 70’s styles are sticking around in Brazil for a while longer. With some shades, florals, geometric shapes, detailed fabric, and some layered jewelry, you are Boho Chic set.
High-Waisted and White Runners
High-waisted will honestly never go out of style, and if it does, I will definitely continue wearing with this trend. These are the only type of pants I buy, they are super flattering and look good on all body shapes. And who doesn’t love the classic white runner look? Again a timeless trend.
Glitter and Lace
Brazilians for sure love their glitter, not only in makeup, but also their shoes too! Metallic glittered shoes should be your go-to list when getting ready for a night out. Lace, of course, is always elegant ,but sexy, no wonder it’s in for both hemispheres.
