Who’s In, Who’s Out of 2019 Spring Summer Fashion Trends

14.03.2019

With fashion month closing its door we are looking back and ahead simultaneously at the world of fashion trends; rewinding to September 2018 and pinching from what just unfolded in February 2019, we are looking at the colours, accessories, prints, lines and all the next spring summer must haves for 2019. Which big hit from 2018 will be staying with us in 2019? Will  it be dad’s sandals or microbags? And what other ugly things from the past are going to be revived?

We have our money on …..

The new entries

Bold colours

Yellow and the newly adopted colour of the year Pantone living coral will be brightening up the spirits this year during your summer holidays or your last days at work ahead of them; from Prada’s bold yellows to the myriad of neon hues we have seen adopted pretty much – in different measures –  by most brands, summer won’t be of neutrals, you can rest assured.

Artful prints

They are pop, they are vibrant, they stand out; prints that are works of art came alive during the fashion shows of the SS19 collections held back in September last year. Margiela’s Klein blue, clipped poodle — a take on virtual reality — is all we ever wanted to wear. And you will be too!

Layering

Layering monochrome garments is one of the next big things for the summer and despite the apparent lack of difficulty this practice may evoke, it does actually take the most exquisite taste and knowledge of fabric combinations and how to work with proportions to create the most brutally minimalistic effect.

Grunge-chic

If Kurt Cobain’s flannel shirt had sequins all over it, placed in pristine patterns, he would have been the inventor of grunge-chic. Unlike his, Saint Laurent’s loose V-necks and trench coats are plastered in sequins, arranged to form artful mosaics; together with sequins, another grunge symbol was all over the SS19 collection. Black leather, as in biker shorts and blazers, mixing simplicity with a rock vibe.

The keeps

Straw

From straw hats to straw bags of all sizes, no one is leaving straw in a corner for summer 2019, after all, it isn’t summer without a bit of rustic-beachy golden straw to throw around without too much care. Chanel matched big bream straw hats to their iconic suit design as well as sheer ruffle blouses, which means they will be the motto of 2019 summer trends.

Jacquemus has made a straw weekender, or more likely a straw bag where you could fit as many beach towels you would need for the whole summer.

Fringes

And staying with the French Riviera designer just a little longer, fringes are amongst the summer symbols this year round too. The bring movement, originality and femininity.

Dad’s sandals

In the shape of a hybrid sneakers/sandal, one of the trends that shocked the world last year is ‘designed’ to stay and cause manic for who gets the last pair. With laces and Velcro straps this rendition of the dad sandal is the next big ‘ugly thing’ to note down.

Fanny packs and multi purpose pockets

Amongst fashion revivals spotted in 2018, fanny packs — aka bum bags— have made a huge come back and brought with them the idea that you can wear bags anywhere besides over your shoulder. If streetwear first embraced them, these accessories actually got more attention amongst the big luxury brands and they, in 2019 have made them stay.

In the shape of multi purpose pockets, made of lush leather, to wear around your waist line, creating a focal point as you wear your duster jacket on one of those early Spring days. For the men’s, Fendi presented them as part of a series of functional handbags, including shoppers and totes.

Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri reproposed the iconic saddle bag as a crossbody, which translates well into a classy fanny pack worn across the body; in neutral nude blush, it is perfectly matched with anything.
