With each new year comes new trends. You can stay ahead of the curve and start updating your wardrobe now to let 2019 be your chicest year ever. Below we’ve rounded up some trends spotted on the streets of the world’s fashion capitals. These are all trends that you can start wearing now!
Everyone loves a good one-piece. Last year’s 70s-inspired jumpsuits were cute and sexy, but not necessarily the most practical. This year opt for a utility-chic boiler suit instead. They’re still flattering with their tapered silhouette and are oh-so-practical with their comfortable fabrics and multiple (!!) pockets. Plus, they’re the ultimate effortless-chic item. Pair them with sneakers, oxford shoes or ankle boots for a cool day look or dress them up with heels for an alternative evening look.
The evolution of the shoulder continues. Last year we saw the rise of the dramatic sleeve, this year the drama has risen up to the shoulder seam. We’re not talking harsh 80s shoulder pads, we’re talking romantic puffy sleeves inspired by ladylike styles of the 1800s.
Checks/tartan are another trend that keep on evolving season after season. As we approach the end of winter, transition them into warmer weather by stowing away your traditional red and neutral checks for more colorful, seasonally-appropriate alternatives. Use Cher and Dior from Clueless as your inspiration. Pink, lilac, yellow, neon - the options are endless!
Grandma’s favorite hobby is getting a stylish makeover for the new year. It’s been spotted on dresses, jeans, skirts, pants, and blouses to create a fun, creative, and colorful statement. When trying out this new trend be sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple and let the patchwork do all the talking.
This rich yellow hue seems to be the color of the year. It’s been popping up all over the runways and on the streets. Add a touch of sunshine to your wardrobe with some marigold pieces like dresses, tops, and/or accessories.
If you liked mini bags, you’ll love micro bags. Even tinier than their crossbodied cousins, these dainty structured bags add an adorable finishing touch to any outfit. Plus, their micro size means that you’ll never complain about a sore shoulder!
Move over, neutrals and pastels. This year it’s all about color and the brighter, the better. Make your outfits stand out with bright, neon colors. If you’re feeling bold, feel free to wear them from head to toe!
