The new year is upon us, and with it come a whole new set of fashion trends straight from the runways of New York, Paris, and Milan. Here is the 2019 fashion trend forecast with some exciting new additions and trends from decades past that are making a comeback this spring.
Dig out your middle school band t-shirts—this eclectic sixties print is back with a vengeance. With a little bit of restyling, you’ll be perfectly on trend this upcoming season. Many designers (R13, Prabal Gurung, Eckhaus Latta) use this edgy, retro print everywhere in their collections.
Maximalism, which is an aesthetic of excess, is showing up in some diverse multilayered prints on the runways. Patchwork and amazing prints that delight the eye have all been revived for spring.
Gone are the days of squeezing into tiny denim shorts. The Bermuda short is a looser short that usually ends just above the knee. Although it’s typically known for being comfortable rather than stylish, that’s changing in the coming new year. Bright colors, beautiful fabrics, and interesting patterns will make the Bermuda short a must-have this spring, especially since its flattering for women of all shapes and sizes.
Snakeskin Animal Print
Animal print is a hard trend to shake because it adds so much visual interest to an outfit. Snakeskin in bright neon colors, reds, and pinks is going to be everyone’s favorite print to wear. You don’t have to be a celebrity to pull this print off—you can start small with a handbag or a nice pair of animal print booties if you’re not ready for head-to-toe snakeskin!
Statement sleeves are all the rage, especially a dramatic puffy shoulder. They were popular in 2018, but they’re not going anywhere anytime soon, and they might even get bolder. Take a look at Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2019 collection for inspiration.
This color is popping up everywhere. This spring, go for deep and bright hues of yellow instead of something pastel. Making a statement is what 2019 is all about.
Black and White Polka Dots
The 2019 fashion trend forecast predicts that polka dots are going to be everywhere. Designers are going crazy for black and white polka dots—the timeless print is all over runways and should become a staple in your closet as well.
