If you’ve had enough of your winter scarf, gloves and jumpers. If you can take no more of accessorising every outfit with a pair of thermal tights or dressing down in snug trackies (like me, which my other half HATES), then welcome to these upcoming trends for Spring 2019. Start planning now.
The way the fashion industry functions, designers show their collections months before they hit the shops. So, we already know what we’ll be wearing in spring 2019.
At the recent London, Paris and New York Fashion Weeks, the biggest looks were baby blue, clashing prints and the pink tuxedo – which I absolutely adore. And just in time for our Balearic holidays – tie dye.
Last spring’s pastel of choice was lavender, but this time around its a flattering baby blue shade.
Alice + Olivia came out on top with their New York Fashion Week show, mixing baby blue and white with prints.
Elsewhere, Givenchy teamed the trend with another spring 2019 fashion staple – ruched fabrics.
And whilst the colour was mostly spotted on dresses on the runway, fashion houses weren’t afraid to experiment with floaty blouses and skirts.
As seen at: Alice + Olivia, Marc Jacobs, Ph5, Givenchy, Alexa Chung, Roland Mouret, Rejina Pyo.
I can forgive you for hating this trend, as clashing prints like spots and stripes aren’t for everyone.
Dolce & Gabbana and Versace’s looks would probably raise a few eyebrows down the high street, due to their bold colours and out-there accessories but I love them.
Diane von Furstenberg and Self-Portrait show how to work the trend in everyday life, with more subtle colour combinations.
As seen at: Dolce & Gabbana, Balenciaga, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Paco Rabanne, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Self-Portrait and Diane von Furstenberg.
It looks like the evening dress has a new rival for spring 2019 – the pink tuxedo. This is a personal Fave as I am very partial to a Tux.
I like pastel pinks and shocking pink but combined with this super tailored look, pink was extremely popular on the catwalks.
It’s also one of the season’s most wearable outfits, with Gabriela Hearst and Boss’s flattering suits standing out with their delicate blush tones.
As seen at: Escada, Sies Marjan, Gabriela Hearst, Emporio Armani, Gucci, Balenciaga, Roksanda, Peter Pilotto and Boss.
Forget the hippy market ‘Tie dye’, 2019 Tie Dye is popping up on the feeds of our favourite Instagram influencers and in loads of high street stores.
And in 2019 you will once again be able to hark back to your childhood days of bleaching T-shirts in your back garden.
MSGM provided one of the best tie dye looks, pairing a dreamy pink sweater with a matching ruched skirt.
Calvin Klein mixed and matched their hippy prints, whilst Christian Dior went for the kaleidoscopic approach.
As seen at: Calvin Klein, No. 21, Prada, MSGM, Prabal Gurung, R13, Christian Dior and Stella McCartney.
