The birds are chirping, the sun is peeking through the clouds and flowers are starting to bloom again. That means Spring is making its debut and with the change of season comes new fashion trends to try! Below are some of the most wearable trends that everyone can incorporate into their wardrobe for Spring 2019.
Sunshine Shades: The colors you would typically see for the spring season are pastels like lavender, mint or blush. But this Spring, I’m seeing warmer tones like mustard, terracotta and orange. These “sunshine” colors are bold, happy and look great on just about any skin tone. Yellows especially are a stand out color that you will see in spring, summer and will continue into fall designs.
Practical Shorts: Say goodbye to booty shorts and say hello to Bermuda shorts! The runways are jam packed with shorts that are longer in length and it’s a trend that is comfortable and practical. For a chic work look, try pairing Bermuda shorts with a structured top or a blazer and your favorite pair of heels. For a weekend outfit, try longer length denim shorts with a simple tucked in tee and cute sneakers.
Neon: Neon brights were all over the catwalks for the new season and it’s a trend that you’ll see on a lot of celebrities. Lots of shocking pinks, electric yellows and sassy greens! If you’re on the fence about these highlighter colors, try wearing them in your accessories. Go for a neon colored strappy sandal or a bright clutch to stay on trend. I’m a fan of neon pink and I think wearing this color in my jewelry is the route that I’m going to take when I try this trend.
Utility Style: This is a big trend that you’ll see a lot this season. I love the classic “utility colors” like olive and khaki because they are very neutral and are easy to incorporate into your wardrobe. For this trend, think cargo pants and shorts, trench coats and boiler suits. A simple way to wear this style is to pair some utility inspired cropped pants with a simple cream tank and toss a khaki trench coat over the outfit to pull everything together. An effortless and timeless look.
Layered Necklaces: This is an easy trend to try because you can use what you have at home and stack them up! If you’re looking to buy some new layering necklaces, you’ll see a lot of coin inspired jewelry and necklaces that are adjustable so you can change the length yourself. Gold is very trendy, but feel free to mix your metals for an eclectic, on trend look.
Tie-Dye: As soon as you bring up spring trends, your mind automatically goes to florals. Yes, florals are always a safe spring staple, but designers are mixing it up a little this year and throwing it back to the hippie era with the exploration of tie-dyes! It’s the season of color, so if you don’t like color, 2019 might not be the year for you! You don’t have to go crazy with every color in the rainbow in your tie-dye, but perhaps try two complimentary colors. Or, if you’re more daring, go all out and have fun with this throwback trend! I personally would leave the crazy colors to the younger crowd, but I might rock a subtle tie-dye maxi dress or simple tie-dye tee.
This wraps up my trend forecast for Spring 2019! This list was created to give you some fashion inspiration for the warmer months that we so look forward to! Don’t forget that fashion is supposed to be fun, so play around with the trends that call your name and always be unapologetically you! What fashion trends are you loving?
