A new season always deserves a new closet revamp – go into spring well informed with the top looks seen all over the runways of fashion capitals of the world. Looking at what’s been featured on the catwalks and discovering what’s been frequently bough by buyers or posted on Instagram feeds, listed below are trends that are genuinely going to affect your wardrobe this spring. This isn’t just a case of say what you see – this is a proper list of the new items you’ll want to buy, the old ones you’ll be digging out of the closet again and the new styling tricks that will turn everything around. Here are the biggest fashion trends for spring 2019:
The colour of the season is undoubtedly any bright shade of neon. In order to get just the right touch of this trend, and avoid overdoing it, invest in a small cross body bag or a pair of stilettos in a neon shade and add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral outfit. But apart from bright neons, pastels will also be big in 2019 – these softer, feminine shades are perfect for the warmer spring weather. Outerwear and tailored separates in subtle candy hues are going to be an especially popular choice come the beginning of March.
Neutral monochromatic looks are not necessarily a new thing, but an inescapable sea of beige is coming this spring. So, stock up on some quality camel essentials for spring by visiting some of your favourite brands, such as the amazing eb&ive, and start creating chic monochromatic outfits. In order to avoid looking dull and monotone, a good idea would be to mix different shades within one look and experiment with fabrics like leather, silk and linen. If head-to-toe tan isn’t for you, try styling this trend with pops of beautiful pastel shades or even classic colours like black or white.
Both real and faux leather are gaining momentum beyond just outerwear – from trousers, shorts and skirts to shirts and sleeves tops, expect to see leather incorporated into every fashionable outfit come spring. While black is a timeless staple, shades of brown and fiery red will be the most fashion forward this season. Whether matte or high shine, all types of leather are going to be trendy in 2019.
As the temperatures rise up, expect to see more artisanal craft details, but on very sleek and minimalistic silhouettes, because nothing says spring and summer more than crochet and macramé. From Missoni to Isabel Marant, lots of designers breathed new life into this chic ‘70s trend. Crafty fabrications were seen all over the runways and knitted pieces will be a big hit among customers come spring.
While seashell jewellery has been making its way into the fashion scene for the last year or so, designers are going for the full by-the-seashore look with netting and pukas that are nothing less than mermaid-worthy. Macramé and crochet had some major moments on the spring/summer ’19 runways, but the fishnet pattern in particular was the biggest highlight of them all, judging by designers such as Dior and Louis Vuitton.
From patterned to solid coloured ones, styled as a smart casual outfit or an athleisure look, bike shorts were seen all over the runways this season. While they may be one of the most unexpected trends, there is no denying we’ll be seeing them everywhere come spring. If you’re not sure you can get into the whole bike shorts thing, but still want to try the long shorts look, then go for Bermudas. They hit you on the leg at exactly the same point, and are just as much of a trend for spring 2019.
Function meets fashion in the form of the utility chic trend – the spring runways brought jumpsuits and belted trousers and jackets done up in any shade of khaki imaginable. So, expect to see an abundance of patch pockets, cotton drill and cargo pants everywhere you go this spring. The trend that falls somewhere between modern military and safari chic, utility is the ultimate in one-step dressing – it’s efficient, comfortable and cool.
As you reassess your wardrobe for the new season, it’s the perfect time to make sure you have all the trendy items you’ll ever need to put together chic and fashionable spring outfits.
