Are you keen to try some of 2019’s biggest trends but not sure which ones will work for you? While some of this season’s looks are definitely out there — like the kimono-style suits that were spotted on catwalks — others are pretty easy to pull off, just as long as you know where to start. From must-wear colours to western-inspired jackets — here are this year’s top picks for trends you should try in 2019.
Tailoring is back
Smart tailoring is bang on trend for 2019. Spotted on runways from Comme des Garçons to Canali, two pieces were everywhere. From classic tailoring to interesting twists like double-breasted jackets, it’s clear that sporting a suit is going to be big all year long. So, if you’re looking to give it a try, the best thing to do is keep it classic. Go for darker hues and slim fit designs teamed with a crisp white shirt to really set it off. Don’t forget to check out Camicissima Uk for some shirt inspiration.
It’s not for the faint hearted but super-short shorts are making a come back. Whether you’re into bold and bright prints or prefer pastel hues, it doesn’t matter, just make sure yours are as short as possible! To pull off this look, try to avoid any long-fit t-shirts or vests and make sure those shorts aren’t too tight! For a retro-inspired look why not team them with a loose-fitting short-sleeved shirt.
To keep it bang on trend with your colour palette this season, opt for dark and sage greens. These hues suit pretty much anyone and look great whether it’s a simple t-shirt or, if you’re feeling particularly courageous, a three-piece suit. Green is the ideal colour to help your wardrobe transition from the dark winter days into bright and beautiful spring, so why not inject a bit of life into yours with a couple of key pieces?
Play with patterns
This season it’s all about being bright and bold. Clashing patterns were seen across runways from Versace to Dolce & Gabbana and are ideal for creating a vibrant spring look. Whether it’s camouflage, paisley, animal print or a combination of colours — just wear it with confidence. While clashing patterns is key, there are still plenty of ways this look can be too overpowering. To avoid this pitfall just make sure you keep the rest of your look relatively simple
The Wild West
Western-inspired looks were also pretty popular across catwalks. However, when it comes to trying out this trend yourself it’s better to tone it down a little first. Instead of going all-out cowboy, why not pick up a checked shirt instead? Pair with a white t-shirt for the perfect day time look. Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more stand-out, why not try a western-inspired jacket. Think leather or denim with a relaxed feel. You could even go for tassels if you’re feeling confident.
