By Emma – on in Beauty
Already looking forward to the fashion trends of 2019? Be ahead of the curve and shop your favourite trends right now to play to the gallery.

Fashionistas everywhere wait patiently every September and March for the runway shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris. These 4 fashion city pillars dictate the upcoming trends that will dominate magazine covers, editorials, Instagram feeds and street style stars. If you love fashion and you love to be aware of the upcoming trends, we suggest you keep reading and find out what fashion trends will be huge in 2019. From earth tones to marigold and mega volume, there’s a trend that fits with every personality.

1 Feathers abound

Gentle, graceful, ethereal, feathers will bring some lightness to any outfit. Wear feathers on your feet (a.k.a on beautiful strappy sandals) or go for a cropped feathered jacket like Olivia Palermo pictured above or a feathered cocktail dress for some added pizazz. The feathered look was especially popular at Dries Van Noten, Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Rochas.


2 Leggy ladies

In a post “me-too” world, women will be happy to know that wearing a minidress is a sign of strength and power instead of male approval. Showing off your barre or spin legs you’ve been working on for the past 6 months will have totally paid off. In 2019, fashion is all about individuality and what makes you feel good, whether it is miniskirts or itty-bitty dresses.


3 Mother Earth

Who doesn’t love a neutral outfit? From honey to blush to caramel and cinnamon, there are tons of hues to choose from to complete your trendy look. Burberry, Chloe, Jill Sander and Max Mara were the standout brands that embraced this fashion trend for 2019. Go for a monochromatic look or mix and match different hues to create a multi-dimensional look.


4 Today’s catch

Netting is a big trend for 2019. Altuzarra, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Ferragamo showed dresses, accessories and separates that reveal just enough skin. Netting can be worn in the day or in the evening, just remember to keep hemlines long.


5 Hello sunshine

Yellow was an extremely popular colour in 2018 and continues to shine in 2019. This bright, fun and versatile colour dominated the catwalk. If you’re not scared of colour (or of turning heads), choose a complete yellow look like pictured above. If wearing colour is difficult for you, go for a bright Marigold bag, knit sweater or hat. This trend was huge at Brandon Maxwell, Carolina Herrera, Givenchy and Oscar de la Renta.


6 Tour de France

Blame the Kardashians or Instagram influencers but bike shorts are here to stay… at least in 2019. Chanel, Ferragamo, Mugler, Roberto Cavalli embraced this athleisurewear and transformed it into everyday wear. Pair them with high boots and a blazer for a more polished look or go all out and wear them with a cropped hoodie, dad shoes and a (fake) post-workout glow.


7 On the dot

Polka dots have sprung and taken over the 2019 runways. Fun, classic, easy to wear, these spots look great on dresses, on sweaters, skirts and accessories. Celine, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Jacquemus stuck to black and white but feel free to change things up and experiment with other colours.


8 Prints that dare

Fashionistas who love luxury, glamour and an artisanal touch will adopt the scarf print trend with an open heart. This 70s inspired trend is far from the typical ladies-who-lunch look you might be used to. Balenciaga, Etro, Loewe and Vetements introduced oversized shirts, sleek dresses and pretty skirts.


9 Escape to anywhere but here

There is so much happening in the world right now that we can’t blame designers like Michael Kors, Versace, Giamba and Duro Olowu for creating collections meant to escape our reality. You wish you were in the South of France? In Dubai? On a safari in Tanzania? Wear your ideal vacation wardrobe at home for a taste of escapism and exotism without going through customs.


10 Smartwear

Fashionable pieces can sometimes be extremely unpractical. Exhibit A: mini bags that can barely fit your phone, keys and credit card. Brands like Alberta Ferretti, Coach, Fendi, Givenchy decided to stick to practicality when designing their 2019 collections like one piece suits with pockets galore, cargo pants, etc. This workwear-inspired fashion trend for 2019 will look great with an incredible pair of heels and a pop of colour.


11 Sheer delight

Nothing is more romantic than showing a bit of skin. Naeem Khan, Sally Lapointe, Oscar de la Renta and Laquan Smith adopted this trend, confirming that skin is in.


12 XXL fashion

Large and dramatic silhouettes took over the runway at Alexander Wang, Acne Studios, Christopher Kane and Victoria Beckham. Cocoon yourself in an oversized coat, embrace some XXL wide leg pants or a menswear-inspired blazer. To keep your look polished and not sloppy, wear a tight bun or low ponytail and a minimal nude makeup.

 

The fashion trends of 2019 make us excited for the new year to come. Whether you’re a trendsetter or a classic kind of woman, you’ll find a trend to add to your closet.
