From feathers to polka dots, biker shorts, and tie dye prints, here are the top trends from the runways of Paris, London, Milan and New York from the Spring 2019 collections.
- Perfect match
Matching sets and colour coordinated outfits are a big hit for Spring 2019. This year runways showed a lot of monochromatic outfits, including accessories, as well as matching sets. What was once considered as “too much accessorising” will soon become a big trend.
2. Tie Dye
If so far pastels were the first choice when it came to spring, it seems like the new season will be a more colourful one, with lots of hippie vibes. The runways were filled with plenty of tie-dyed apparel in bright and bold colours.
Feathers had a huge moment during Fashion Week. Whether as an embellishment on dresses, hats, shoes or bags, one thing is for certain: we will see a lot of them in the upcoming season.
4. Earth tones
One colour that we got to see a lot during Fashion Week was beige. Moreover, it was a true renaissance of a wider beloved colour palette which includes shades of coffee, caramel, cinnamon or camel.
This year, designers took a lot of inspiration from the fishermen. We saw a lot of fishnet dresses and tops, as well as intricate crochet pieces.
The It-colour for Spring is definitely Marigold. A saturated and sunny yellow was seen all over the catwalk, from day outfits to night time gowns and it will surely be visible a lot during the next season.
7. Polka dots
Designers went mad for polka dots this season. The timeless print showed up in various combinations, from sheer polka dot dresses to modern boy shorts and two-piece matching sets.
8. Bike shorts
Bike shorts were a big hit in Chanel’s fashion show. Other designers as well came up with different approaches, from tailored shorts to street style ones. One this is for certain – shorts are the new skirt.
9. Trench Coats
This closet staple got an update for spring especially at Burberry, where newly installed creative director Riccardo Tisci presented many variations on the classic coat. The preferred colour however remains beige.
10. ‘80s denim
The ‘80s have been back for quite a few seasons now, but there seems to be no stopping this trend. This season, many designers brought in acid-washed denim and ripped jeans.
