A new year is a perfect opportunity to set new goals and reset your style. Thankfully, some fashion trends and styling hacks will help you get a fashion-forward look. Since a new year deserves a style refresh, keep on reading for the fashion trends that will give you a style statement this 2019.
- Hippy Modernism
Have you noticed that fashion designers Chloé and Loewe took an escapist turn with Neo Boho trend? Fashion designers are experimenting with shapeless silhouettes mixed with structured pieces, along with earthy tones teamed with bold, vibrant colors. Sun-kissed hues and neutrals are your safest bet when it comes to rocking the hippy modernism trend, but adding some bold colors will make everything unexpected.
Like fashion blogger Freddie Harrel, you may think of a loose bohemian-inspired dress, but keep the look modern with a snake-print clutch and a pair of ankle boots. While tribal prints and paisleys are a trademark of bohemian fashion, you may trade them with your favorite African prints that will make your style more modern, yet personal.
This nostalgic print might bring you back into the 60s, but do you know designers have pushed the boundaries, making this print more modern and chic? It’s true that classic black and white tie-dye will make your style classier, but you can also think of the festive print in colorful hues. To rock the tie-dye trend in a more modern way, think of bold colored versions in your dresses and skirts that are best paired with some hip and trendy accessories.
3. Neon Trend
We all know that Pantone selected “Living Coral” as 2019’s color of the year, but if you don’t want to blend into the scene, go for bold neon hues. Do you know that even your timeless basics in neon colors can pack a punch as a full look? During Chanel and Gucci runway shows, the neon trend is spotted with softer hues and dressed down with denim, making the look more approachable and practical.
Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, think of wearing your neon skirt with a non-neon purple top that will look more cohesive when styled with bejeweled necklace in a matching color. If you feel neon is quite blinding for the day, go for subtler version of the color, perhaps a bright yellow matching set instead of a neon one, or a baby pink dress instead of a hot pink one.
4. Bamboo Bags
Do you know that the bamboo bag is the new basket bag for 2019? A great thing, bamboo bags are the best accessory to add some flair to your basic outfits. Remember, a new year is the perfect reason to make your wardrobe more exciting, and structured wooden bags are the perfect addition to your style. A great thing, the structured silhouette of the bag will add some polish to your look, while making everything a bit breezy.
5. Feather Details
Have you noticed that feathers were all over the runways and the fashion pieces that are popping everywhere? This trend started when Miuccia Prada designed pajama sets with feather trims, along with feather-covered pumps during her Spring/Summer 2017 runway show. A great thing, the fancy feather detail is a must this 2019, and it will turn any basic outfit into a glamorous one.
However, feather details are trickier to wear than their fur counterparts, but you can go for neutral colors that will look chic and classy. If you can, start with accessories whether it’s a pair of earrings, necklace, or a feather trimmed handbag. To get a festive look, think of dark colored feather-trimmed ensembles that will take you from parties to weekends.
