Even though we still have a couple of months before we actually immerse into the new year (it still feels like 2018, doesn’t it?), making sure we stay trendy and fashionable in 2019 is a priority. Yes, you can still wear your winter wardrobe, as we are not here to discuss the trends of the following season, but the overall trends of 2019. What will we be wearing? What colors will we be seeing in the streets? What materials will we be buying? So, make sure to bookmark this page as you really should enter 2019 in style, prepared for all the fashion trends that are about to happen. Take a look:
The color of the year
For more than 20 years, one of the most exciting moments of the year is the day when the Pantone Color Institute officially announces the color of the year. We have seen some great examples of Ultra Violet last year (the Pantone color of 2018), Greenery in 2017 and Rose Quartz in 2016, both on runways and on the street. This year, be prepared to fully embrace the new color of the year – Living Coral. This vibrant yet mellow coral hue will be huge in 2019, so if there’s something you need to pick a color for, this is the one for you.
The future of shopping
This is something that we have been predicting for quite some time now, but the future of shopping lies in the ‘’Add to cart’’ button. More and more companies and businesses encourage online shopping, and it seems that 2019 is the year when we’ll get to buy practically everything online. And why not? If we can buy women’s dresses from the comfort of our own home, why not use this perk? Yes, buying clothes online will definitely be huge in 2019, and apart from avoiding the crowds in the stores, it has another advantage. This is also a great way to save some extra money, firstly on the gas to and from the actual shop and more importantly, we won’t get to see other clothes that we don’t need but like very much. So, yay for online shopping!
Sustainability is definitely a term that’s becoming more and more frequent in fashion. Two decades ago, saving the world was not something that was cared about, yet it seems that the “going green” initiative is one of the most popular today – starting from the things that we eat and drink and cars that only use electrical power to the clothes that are safe for the environment. Stella McCartney was the first one to hit the scene in the early 2000s with her fur and leather-free fashion, and since then more and more people and companies have joined the cause. Keep your eyes open for organic clothing as it will also be huge in 2019 – and it has some amazing benefits.
As far as the trends of 2019 are concerned, the biggest one that you’ll witness are oversized hats. If you’re on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the Jacquemus La Bomba hat that was huge this summer. This is something that many brands recognized so wearing a huge hat on your head this year is a must. Make sure to get yourself one for the summer, but you can also choose one of many to rock in winter and spring as well.
Moreover, if you’ve always wanted to star in a western movie alongside Clint Eastwood, this is your year! Namely, the western vibes are here this year, so wearing cowboy boots, faux leather and brown hats will be one of the most fashionable looks of the year. And don’t forget the fringes as you’ll be seeing them from boots to bags. Simply take a look at Tom Ford’s latest collection and see how nice fringes can go with an elegant dress.
Finally, say goodbye to pastel colors as neon is here to take over the world. Make sure to own at least one neon-colored garment, or even more if you’re bold enough.
To sum up, 2019 has a lot in store for us, and even though we can’t predict everything, we can sense that it’s going to be a huge year fashion-wise!
