This season, it’s time to try something new. Carefully curated from the catwalk, we reveal the five trends to wear in 2019, all showcased in our exclusive style video. From luxe layering to the key print stories of now and later, here’s everything you need to know about your next wardrobe update.
1. Luxe Layering
As well as outsmarting the weather, layered looks are high on the style agenda as we move from winter to spring. Far from frumpy, this season’s key pieces are refined and considered, and slot seamlessly into the rest of your everyday wardrobe – much like this high-neck knit and pinafore dress duo. Style it for colder days with a wool coat in a tonal shade plus matching tan accessories.
2. Tonal Co-Ords
Tonal dressing – wearing multiple shades of the same colour at once – is big news for SS19. Creating a look that’s instantly polished and pulled together, this top-and-culottes combo in burnt orange makes a cool, contemporary addition to your everyday wardrobe. Wear the top tucked in to define your waist and complete the look with white trainers.
3. Bold Colour
Bold colour = the simplest way to transition into spring. Invest in a bright knit to wear with jeans now, and to style with midi skirts and trainers as the weather warms up. We like how the vibrant orange hue of this just-arrived jumper nods to the rust palettes of the moment yet feels refreshing enough to take into the early days of next season.
4. Western Influence
How to take a fresh approach to western styling? Keep it understated. Printed with prairie florals and gold-foil birds, this button-up shirt nods to the all-American aesthetic without going overboard. Tuck yours into a pair of jeans with a mid-blue wash, eschewing flared silhouettes for straight-leg styles that feel decidedly more modern. Finish with a pair of leather ankle boots in classic tan and complement the rest of the colour palette with a brushed wool coat in a dusky hue.
5. Patchwork Prints
Having stormed the season’s runways, patchwork prints are one of the key trend call-outs of 2019. The easiest way to bring them into your style rotation is through the ever-wearable midi dress, spliced with mix-and-match florals in blue and mustard yellow, finished with a button-through design. Dress it down for weekends with white trainers and a long-line cardigan in a matching tone.
