For the Spring Summer 2019 season, there are continuations of trends that are now a few seasons old, considered collections for mature women with spending power, highly Instagrammable items, not to mention minimalism that is still there, despite the maximalism that is taking more space than ever. Also, having established that the millennials are “poorer” than what the brands had previously estimated, this season there is plenty of Gen Z–friendly trends, hoping that this time, the target will be more adequate. In short, whatever you want, it’s there, all you have to do is chose what suits your mood of the day.
Just when you thought that animal motifs have reached their peak already this year, runways state that fashion’s best friend is still strongly present.
The eighties come back for yet another round of inspirational looks, with strong shoulders, lamé, glitzy party dresses, skirt suits, logos, and gaudy accessories that all echo the eighties most outrageous trends.
Simple, demure silhouettes rendered in equally soft colours like oatmeal, biscuit, blush and off-white. Beige, in fashion terms, is one of the most sophisticated looks for this season.
Every kind of highlighter-bright colour hit the runways across New York, Paris, Milan and London. Some designers used satin and lace, others kept things casual in cotton. The trend has already managed to make its way onto the streets, evoking flashbacks from the 80s.
After a few successful seasons, the prairie dress is about to become an even bigger deal for summer 2019. These long-sleeved, long-length, often floral or broderie anglaise styles are going to make dressing up much easier and more comfortable this coming season.
Although mini bags and barely there will still be present, the most outrageous must-have pieces of the season are going to, quite literally, be huge, think hats, chunky necklaces, and statement shoes, earrings, etc.
