You’re going to see crochet everywhere in three months as it rises up to be a new wardrobe staple. But no, we’re not talking about your grandma’s knit pieces or average boho crochet here. The look is modern and elevated, adding a dose of ’70s cool to any look.
We’ve seen biker shorts among the street style and celeb sets all season long, but as designers from Fendi to Chanel showcased, the trend isn’t going away anytime soon. So if you haven’t tried the look yet, get to it.
Birds of a Feather
Sometimes you just want to feel fancy, and feather-accented pieces are the simplest way to make that happen. Sure, the trend has coasted through the last few seasons, but the top designers were feeling extra fly for spring, bringing dramatic feathers to the forefront of a silhouette.
Down to Earth
Sure, colors galore stormed the runways, but one of the standout hues of the season just happens to be one of the subtlest and most down-to-earth. Designers dressed models in head-to-toe earth tones, proving that paring it back can actually make quite a statement.
After you test out your head-to-toe-beige look above, cruise over to the other end of the spectrum with graphic, punchy prints. Here, more is more, where mixing floral and graffiti patterns is welcomed and encouraged.
This season, street style stars let their animal instincts take over with bold and wild prints. In particular, loud leopard print was a favorite amongst the fashionistas and appeared on a variety of garments, including pants, coats, dresses, suits, and more. To follow the lead of these chic ladies and unleash your own inner jungle cat, choose strong and striking designs with bold and bright colours. Alternatively, consider an all-over leopard print look with matching separates or a dress/jumpsuit. You can even add a leopard print bag or shoes if you’re feeling playful.
Are you ready to embrace your dark side? If so, make like the street style stars of Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion Month and try a neo-gothic look. To wear the trend, follow their lead and pair an all-over black ensemble with on-trend pieces. Essentially, you can wear what you like, but remember to keep the overall vibe dark and moody with a chic twist. Also, consider adding a dark red lip for a sexy touch.
Neon brights were on the catwalks at Christian Siriano, Henry Holland and Naeem Khan for spring/summer. Think tailoring, two pieces, capes, separates – as long as it looks like a shade of highlighter, you’re good to go.
Marigolds are going to be everywhere in 2019, and no, we’re not talking about your mum’s fave rubber gloves. Sunny yellows lit up runway shows at Carolina Herrera, Oscar De La Renta, J. JS Lee and Brandon Maxwell.
If you don’t like colour, this summer may be a testing time for you, because along with neons and yellows, there’ll be a load of tie dye about, too. As seen on the catwalks at R13 and Prabal Gurung, this is sophisticated tie dye; think blazers, knits and midi skirts aplenty.
