2019 brings new resolutions, new gym memberships, new diets and of course, the latest fashion trends.
Upcoming trends from New York fashion week are daring, primal, feminine, structured and oh so colorful. With warm and sunny hues of marigold, tomato red, coral, crimson and lovely lavender this season is happy and bright.
Animal instincts are taking over 2019, and the trend has never looked so classic and chic. Consider leopard a staple or basic now as it is fabulous in shoes, belts, bags and popping scarves paired with any color ensemble. Leopard is the perfect pop piece to accompany any look. Wear it paired with colors of the season marigold and tomato red for hints of eye-catching color and print pattern play. Other prints making its way from the jungle to your closet are snakeskin and zebra for a fresh take on this animal trend.
Pearls, pearls, pearls. Although this timeless accessory has never fallen off the fashion radar, it is being reimagined by designers in sunglasses, belts, embellished tops, and jackets. Style to note, Gucci’s Pearl Embellished cat eye sunglasses. In 2019, organic-shaped baroque pearl earrings and necklaces are a must have as they are a modern twist to the classic round pearls worn by our grandmothers. Blair Waldorf would approve.
A stunning trend of puffed sleeve blouses are going to be everywhere, and we love it paired with a pencil skirt or skinny black pants. Your closet must host a fitted blouse with a bulky sleeve this season as it is fabulous, fashion-forward and really compliments any ensemble with that fashionista wow factor.
The Little White Dress
Move over little black dress and make room for the little white dress. An innocent, sweet, fresh look that is perfect for throwing on in the Spring or Summer. We love it paired with a pop of color sandal in marigold.
For the bohemian gal, vests have taken the place of jackets unless they are blazers. Add a vest to any ensemble and you have an updated look that is great to pair with jeans or over a cute Free People inspired bohemian dress. White brings me to tie-dye. It's back and bigger than ever, the trend that is fun loving and easy. Expect to see it in dresses this year.
Now, imagine your favorite designer handbag in a mini version. This adorable accessory trend has flooded the runways and now the streets. Designers like Prada and Gucci are now offering their namesake bags in miniature sizes. Ideal for a night out and a nice alternative to the classic clutch. Perfectly paired with a leopard pant and puff-sleeved blouse, the miniature purse really captures the look of the season.
Activewear with Blazers
For the more experimental fashionistas, 2019 is mixing athletic wear with blazers. A nod to the 1980s, fitted biker shorts are being partnered with tailored blazers in both solids and prints. Classic tartan print will be a leading print in this trend. Business on the top, leisure on the bottom makes for a daring fashion statement.
The best thing about all of these trends is that they work back to apparel already in your wardrobe. Add a leopard cardigan to a chic black dress with a matching leopard pump and geometric shaped pearls or add a puff-sleeved blouse to a sleek pair of skinny black jeans and you instantly have a fresh on-trend look for 2019.
