Happy Friday friends!
I always love to hear about what the latest trends are for the year, in Fashion. Some are more wearable than others, but its always fun to see what I may want to incorporate or add to my closet if I choose something trendy. Let’s look at what some of the major trends are for Spring/Summer 2019, and I’d love to hear from you if you would wear any of them.
Im in the market to revamp my Spring wardrobe, as many of the pieces are old and I’ve got fewer clothes for Spring-Summer than I do Fall-Winter. I’ve got jeans, jean skirts, white and denim jean shorts, and a few skirts. I added a few linen dresses last year into the mix, but need more dresses and cute blouses/tops this year. I’ve been not shopping for 2 months, due to a treadmill I bought for the house, so come April, it’ll be fast and furious! he he! I’m loving the neutrals for summer, the khakis/olives, and hope to incorporate some pieces to mix/match, as well as solid colors or other prints besides florals ( I have enough).
Tie Dye- Hello! Jerry Garcia called, and wants his tie-dye back! Tie Dye is showing on the runway, and I know I instantly think of the Grateful Dead and the 70s hippie movement. Tie Dye also makes me think of crafts, and the last time I crafted something was in Girl Scouts, so it has been awhile. So for me, tie-dye is a no.
Spicy Colors- Yes! When you think of spice, do you think mustards, browns, rusts, oranges, reds? I am loving this trend and have many of these shades in my closet for summer and spring. These Autumn type shades are great with red hair, and many brands are showing linen blazers, dresses, and footwear in these hot colors! Spicy is a yes!
Head to Toe Neutrals- Some people may think of neutrals as boring, but they are anything but when you dress with added accessories that really take those soft neutral shades to another level. I have linen dresses I purchased last year, that I will add textured belts in brown, neck scarves with snakeskin print. cognac or chocolate brown leather sandals etc. I find neutrals in the Pantone Colors for Spring to be classic and so easy to pair. Neutrals are a yes!
Bike Shorts- How did this happen? The only time I want to wear bike shorts is.. you guessed it, when I am biking! Fortunately the padded crotch is out, but these are more like form-fitting Bermuda shorts. I have seen them worn with blazers and long tunics, but I think if you are going with this length, wear a pair of structured Bermuda shorts. They are tailored and much more stylish! Bike shorts are a no! ( unless you are biking) 🙂
Neon- You can’t be a wallflower or hide in Neon. The ultra-bright shades are to be noticed. I always think of store signs! For my personality, I love the color, but neon has never struck a chord with me. If you aren’t looking to go full fledge outfit, chose an accessory like a clutch or pair of earrings. For me, neon is a no.
Safari Jacket and Style- Oh yes! I have never been on a Safari or to Africa, but I love love the look of a Safari dress or trending more, is the Safari Jacket. I love this pocketed style and how it can be worn with anything from jeans to light linen pants, or worn over a tank dress. These jackets are being shown in off white, olive, and mustard. Classic, think- Ralph Lauren. Safari Jacket is a Yes!
This jacket above is one from Anthropologie I scored in later Spring last year – bought on Poshmark. I need to style it!
This is not a definitive list, but many of the trends this season.
Tell me, what trends would you wear, what trends are a “No” for you? Why?
Have a great weekend!
