SS19 Fashion Trends
We're heading into warmer weather....hopefully, and with the really warm weather just around the corner, it is time to go out and update my spring and summer wardrobe. So, today, I thought we would take a look at this year’s main trends.
Online retailers tend to be a week or two ahead of the fashion curve, so I took a look at JD Williams site. It is huge, so you can get a good feel for which of the catwalk trends have made their way into the mainstream. Here are the ones that caught my eye.
Jumpsuits have turned into boilersuits
It took a while, but jumpsuits were very big, last year, a lot of women were wearing them. This year, the boilersuit look is taking over. People are loving this crossover look that combines style with utilitarian details like big pockets on the chest and belts. They are selling so fast that even the large retailers cannot keep up with demand.
For evenings out, glamorous flowing jumpsuits are still easy to pick up. Try to choose something that looks good with a jacket or shawl, so you are ready for slightly chillier evenings. Also, bear in mind your summer holiday, potentially you can pack you jumpsuit or boilersuit. They are the perfect all-in-one outfit.
The all in denim look
Denim boilersuits are especially popular. They fit in well with another big SS19 trend, top to toe denim. For the first time in many years it is easy to pick up denim shirts as well as jeans and jackets. Stars like Kendall Jenner made this way of dressing popular last autumn and it has re-emerged for the spring. For cooler days, layered denim is ideal. Just be sure to choose a denim blouse that has sleeves that are wide enough to be rolled up when the sun finally comes out.
This winter has been all about whites. A trend that has given way to neutral tones, a colour palette that should work for most of you. As the weather warms up you can expect the colours to do the same. It will be interesting to see if the shocking neons and bright yellow clothes that are appearing on catwalks, at the moment, will make their way into the shops.
It has been a while since the tie-dyed look was fashionable. But, it certainly is right now. If you want to know how to wear what is a tricky print, just read this article.
Another big trend for the spring is transparent patterned raincoats. They look fantastic and are practical too.
The craft movement has grown and grown, so it's no surprise to see clothing designers being inspired by it. Keep an eye out for crocheted dresses and coats. Tailored lace blouses and net dresses, which are designed to be worn over other clothes, are another interesting trend.
