In the world of fashion, the Spring/Summer trends for 2019 are but a distant memory as they have made way for us to think about Fall/Winter 2020…GASP! But, I’d rather focus on what we have to look forward to once Old Man Winter has given up his final wintery blast and we can look forward to the warmth and renewal of spring.
From New York, London, Paris and Milan designers paraded the top Spring/Summer fashion trends ranging from dramatic volumes to bike shorts and everything in between.
This compilation from WWD.com and TheTrendSpotter.com are some of the looks you might want to incorporate into your style this coming season.
ANIMAL INSTINTS: Does leopard ever go out of style? Once again leopard joins the runway on a variety of garments, including pants, coats, dresses, suits and more. Unleash your own inner jungle cat by choosing strong and striking designs with bold and bright colors. Or use it in accessories as a playful contrast to a more conservative look.
BIKE SHORTS with BLAZERS: Offering a fresh take of sportswear and tailoring athleisure is the trend that keeps going. While it may not be appropriate in the two settings of its inspiration, the outfit can be a fun style for Sunday brunch with the girls or a casual evening out on the town.
CRAFT FAIR: Patchwork which we’ve typically considered a dated craft has become one an artisanal fashion trends. It has appeared on dresses, jumpsuits, pants and more. Along with patchwork, additional craft elements such as fringing, fabric bundles and hand-painting are infusing clothes with personality and emotion.
PASTELS: Gentle pastels were everywhere for spring. While frothy dresses worked the expected side of a gentle palette, designers also drew from it to infuse sporty and street looks with an offbeat prettiness.
PICTORIALS: Pictorials were all over the spring runways in jacquards, intarsias and a multitude of prints. Interpretations ranged from beachside imagery and outdoor scenery at Etro and Prada to Jeremy Scott’s Polaroid self-portraits with edge.
PUFF SHOULDERS & POET SLEEVES: The sleeve treatment of choice for spring — ballooning — adds drama to silhouettes for day and night proving once and again that the minimal trend is over. Simultaneously striking and stylish, puff sleeves add a fun ‘80s twist to modern outfits. Keep a balance with the drama is important so you don’t appear over-the-top.
UTILITY: Flight suits, cargo pants, pockets to pockets everywhere were all over the spring runways. Originally designed as a one-piece protective garment for manual labor, ‘boiler’ suits are now as fashionable as they are functional. To rock the look for yourself, pick the cut and color that suits you best.
VOLUME: From larger-than-life silhouettes to dramatic details, volume proved to be one of the biggest trends on the runways.
