The Spring/Summer 2019 Fashion Trends

440 440 Velvet

Of all the spring/summer 2019 fashion trends, there is one that is an absolute favorite of mine. It is the embracing of a loose, comfortable and feminine layering. Catwalk outfits have already been featured in so many magazines. Therefore, it’s time for a quick high street fashion edit filled with inspiration and tips in order to adapt the ones that fit best.

I think a major keyword to this new season’s trends is soft elegance. Almost everything exudes a relaxed vibe, but in a sophisticated kind of way. This comfortable tailoring that entails lots of layering sports longer skirt lengths, plenty of suits, throw-on dresses high on drama, stripes, animal prints (yes, leopard print still going strong) and pattern clashes. Part of the fashion game this spring/summer of 2019 is getting those pattern clashes right for it proves a sense of high fashion sensibility. Keeping also a sense of high and low key balance is also essential. (You may want to read more on this tip here).

The silhouettes are much more flowy. Thus, everything appears even softer and much more relaxed. A quick note to point out here is that although jumpsuits are still very trendy, boiler suits are even more so because they are so much wider and loose with the belt-up as an option. High waist pants that emphasize the waist line are still here, going strong. As for dresses, opt for soft fabrics will less frills but well structured. This season is all about showing off your feminine side.


The color spectrum is going to be wider than usual. Mustard and spice honey tones (including blush pinks and rusty hues) are still on the scene. But there’s a lot more yellow and red hues and the whole beige spectrum. Splashes of neon have and will be adopted by some of the bolder fashionistas. However, if you’re looking for a shade to invest in then go for sage green. Of course, white and khaki are the safe color options that anyone can turn to in case of doubt.

Rusty hues are hot. Love those pants with a chevron pattern, the rusty hue jacket and fringed leather bag. Image by Dorothy Perkins.

So if you can only invest in one thing this upcoming season, then I urge you to go for the prairie dress with broderie for some drama. The long sleeves will definitely add that preppy look, but it’s all in the broderie anglaise that will give it that refined sophisticated feminine look everyone will be after.
