On Trend: The SS19 Fashion Report

We know, we know, we’re only just the other side of Christmas. However, we’re staying ahead of the curve with a preview of SS19’s best trends. What better way to pass the time while you’re digesting your Christmas leftovers and over-indulging on Baileys than getting to grips with the new season? There are a whole host of new trends to navigate – from platforms and feathers to fashion’s new love of headwear. But between the rave-inspired prints, hippie throwbacks and craft-inspired collections things can get confusing. To make things easier, we’ve hand-selected a few of our favourites. These are the trends you need to know now.

BE MORE BEIGE

Not the insult it once was, being beige is now top of every fashion girl’s agenda. Be bold with neutrals and take your cues from Balmain’s runway in head-to-toe looks, or harness the power of the luxury houses’ signature prints – we’ve got Fendi’s Zucca and Gucci’s double G Supreme in mind. Rock the tone on tone look or introduce select pieces to your wardrobe through monogrammed accessories. Oatmeal, tan, sand ¬– whatever you want to call it, brown is big for SS19.

PATTERN CLASH

Be bold with pattern and embrace fashion’s undying love for florals and graphic prints this spring. Throw your caution to the wind with bandanna-inspired fabrics by Valentino in fresh and feminine shades of dusky pink and blue. The Mediterranean vibe continues apace with Sicilian brights from Dolce & Gabbana and Versace’s signature decadence. If you’re in the mood for something with a bit more street credit, Off-White’s “Pattern” logo silk separates are a tongue-in-chic spin on ditzy floral pieces.

THE NEW LACE

This spring, lace has advanced beyond its pearl-clutching, yuppie reputation. It’s as much at home on the street as it is a wedding party, with Zimmermann leading the charge on ‘90s-inspired lace mini dresses and Gucci incorporating lace into its sporty, street-inspired pieces. Gothic references, masculine silhouettes, beautiful craftsmanship and feminine, frothy layers mean there are versions to suit all tastes. Lace reimagined.
