Hey fashionista, rejoice! With new seasons come new trends to try out. As the right hand to your favorite Image Consultant, I’d like to enlighten you on some of the biggest Spring 2019 trends we’ll be seeing in the next few months. If the SS19 runways shows are any indication, it appears 2019 will be a very fashionable year, indeed. Whether you wear one, or all five, here are the five of the biggest trends you’ll see in spring 2019.
Tie-dye is no longer just a craft project! Despite being known as clothing adolescents wear, tie-dye has had a major fashion image update. On the SS19 runways, we saw tie-dye at Dior where Maria Grazia layered the whimsical print over floral design. Other designers such as Chloé and Stella McCartney showcased tie-dye tees for a more casual image. I look forward to mixing in the trend with oversized denim and my Dr. Martens for an ultra 90s image. This Re/Done tee is so easy to fit into your wardrobe, and it will look great with any image you want to create!
Like many bohemian styles, crochet is appearing to be a very popular textile this spring. It was all over the SS19 runways at shows like Altuzarra’s and Chloé. With temperatures climbing back up, crochet is going to be a must-have on your next vacation. From a consultant perspective, crochet pairs very well over a bohemian image style such as maxi dresses with a pair espadrilles. I will definitely be living in this super cute crochet set from Urban Outfitters all spring and summer.
Perhaps the scariest spring image, cycling shorts are an undeniable big trend this spring. Love them or hate them, major designers were all over this sporty image. Much like your favorite Image Consultant, Chanel paired cycling shorts with blazers for a more sophisticated approach. Although they are not my personal favorite spring trend, I am up to the challenge of rocking the cycling shorts image. I plan on taking a sportier approach when trying out this trend. I like the idea of pairing cycling shorts with a cool oversized hoodie and some chunky sneakers. My inspiration comes from some old pictures of Princess Diana. I like how she pairs the outfit because she has a put together image, yet she’s not trying too hard.
Brown is the new black? Apparently this is a true image for 2019. Muted tones and neutrals were all over the SS19 catwalk in shows like Fendi and Givenchy. Although some might argue this trend is on the boring side, you can do so much with neutrals.
A monochromatic neutral look can give your outfit a sense of sophistication and a more luxury image. For example, this Topshop coat is the perfect camel color and will look great layered over these LEITH trousers and a white blouse for a transitional Spring look.
As seen towards the end of 2018, fluorescent hues were all over the street style image, largely due to the influence of celebrities like Kim Kardashian. If you tend to lean toward black and white, the neon trend may scare you. But fear not, you can still wear neon by taking a subtle approach by pairing it with muted tones and minimalistic accessories for a conservative image. I personally am a huge fan of color, and I will be going all out for this trend. I love the idea of wearing both neon pink and neon orange together. Yes, you might blind people, but you’ll look cool doing it. Need help staying on trend this season?
