Ten Trends To Get Over Those January Blues
December 24, 2018
Don't feel down for January, we're already looking to spring and some of our favourite trends to hit the catwalk for the season. Get your wardrobes ready early and start bringing in the sunshine…
1) The Cats Are Back
Leopard print ruled the fashion world this year and it's set to return for 2019 - great news if you stocked your wardrobe full of leopard print skirts, shirts, handbags and shoes. We'll be seeing lots of leopard on leopard too, so get ready to pattern clash like a jungle queen.
2) Everything 80s
The era of exuberance is also back again, with lots of lamé, strong shoulders, power suits and metallics to keep you in the nostalgic mood.
3) It's All Neutral
This winter showed its love for tan, and it continues into spring / summer with plenty of beige and soft tones of caramel, biscuit and blush. Work them flawlessly into your wardrobe and wear them head to toe, mix and match the tones to create a more layered look.
4) Neon Brights
All you statement dressers will be in your element come spring, with neon shades hitting the limelight and commanding all the attention. You'll be seeing highlighter hues in everything from swimwear and party dresses to suits and shoes.
5) Prairie Chic
Get ready for some bohemian summer loving. Prairie dresses are getting amped up for 2019, with lots of dropped hems, frills, broderie anglaise, florals and plenty of layers.
6) Sports Luxe, Again
A few of us have been trying to shun the cycle shorts trend, but it's set to go a step further as sports luxe enjoys another season in the fashion limelight. Street style infused looks include cycling shorts with longline tees and chunky trainers.
7) Say It With Accessories
Accessories are stealing the focus for 2019, they're no longer the finishing touch for a look, but the main show. Everything is getting exaggerated and seeking attention, whether it's oversized hats and handbags or huge chandelier earrings and chunky necklaces.
8) Sage Green
Another muted tone set to dominate your wardrobe is sage green. This understated hue is the pastel to indulge in for spring, and is the perfect shade for your new summer dress.
9) Summer Statement
The poolside is going to look colourful for 2019, with everything from California style tie-dye to wetsuit dresses giving your summer wardrobe a dose of Cali surfer chic.
Feathers and fringing are the detail to look for when it comes to the summer party season. Fringes are set to adorn everything, from handbags and hemlines to shoulders and shoes.
