Summer Trends 2019
There are so many 2019 summer trends, but we’re here to tell you about the ones that are going to genuinely affect your wardrobe. Decoding what’s been featured on the catwalk, discovering what has been picked up by buyers or snapped furiously throughout fashion month to hit your feeds on Instagram. This isn’t just a case of saying what you see—this is a proper edit of the items you’ll want to buy, the old ones you’ll be digging out again, the new styling tricks that will turn everything around and the new brand names you’ll need to know. From Paris and Milan to London and New York, every fashion week from the month featured outstanding outfits and lust-worthy looks. Here, we’ve rounded up the top street style trends from the season for you to add to your summer shopping list.
1. OVERSIZED HATS
If you so much as glanced at your Instagram feed last summer, you no doubt spotted a large floppy hat. Now entirely synonymous, it seems brands are vying for similar cult status next season by producing their own delicious incarnations that we already can’t get enough of. These hats are infamous for being perfect for the beach and looking fabulous in the process.
Neon is becoming a huge trend, especially on Instagram. It began as a party or concert outfit but now almost everyone is wearing neon casually. Its definitely not one for the faint-hearted, vibrant zesty hues are back with a bang this year after endless seasons of the fashion pack drooling over all things pastel. If you’re feeling extra brave opt for a double-dose à la Jasper Conran.
Have sequins ever *not* been on trend? Perhaps not, but they were so prevalent at this month’s shows that we can’t ignore them. Offered up in endless incarnations, opt for a more gently beaded style – like Ashish’s mint green jumpsuit – for a friend’s birthday dinner, before swapping into blindingly glitzy Halpern-like number for your own.
4. Animal Prints
This season, street style stars let their animal instincts take over with bold and wild prints. In particular, loud leopard print was a favourite amongst the fashionistas and appeared on a variety of garments, including pants, coats, dresses, suits, and more. To follow the lead of these chic ladies and unleash your own inner jungle cat, choose strong and striking designs with bold and bright colours. Alternatively, consider an all-over leopard print look with matching separates or a dress/jumpsuit. You can even add a leopard print bag or shoes if you’re feeling playful.
5. Lavender Tones
Ultra Violet may be the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2018, but street style stars preferred a softer take on the trend this season. Rocking a range of shades from the lavender family, fashionistas proved that light purple is seriously stylish. Whether worn in the form of boots, dresses, coats or even head-to-toe ensembles, the flattering and feminine colour added a lovely touch to looks. Try it for yourself if you’re after something subtle yet exciting.
6. Fish Nets
Crochet isn’t just for old ladies anymore. Designers are feeling crafty—take it from Chloe and Altuzarra. Sexy, sheer—what’s not to love about this crochet cover-up? Get main-stage ready in this crochet fringe top. Team with denim shorts and sandals to complement.
7. Bucket Hats
Bucket hats are well and truly back. Yes, the iconic ‘90s accessory is a must-have item for ’18/’19 and should undoubtedly be on your shopping list if you don’t already own one. Providing both sun protection and style, these casual and cool hats are perfect for weekend ensembles. Whether plain, patterned or featuring a logo, the brimmed hats add an on-trend edge to any outfit. Wear them with dresses, slouchy suits, overalls, and more.
