Jalyn’s Top Ten Trends for Spring 2019

  1. Tie Dye

Psychedelic tie dye returns from those hippie decades in many guises, including fun sneakers.

2. Accordian Pleats

Accordian pleats are a carry over trend from fall, usually midi length, still flattering, in prints and colors, often worn with sneakers and sandals for a more casual look.

3. Boiler Room Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are still a trend, and this season, they have the look of a work uniform for a boiler room, but in colors and tie dye prints.

4. Light Neutrals

Light neutrals, layered as well as from head to toe, are easy to wear and easy to accessorize, providing a soothing counterpoint to the brights and bold prints.

5. Lace

Lace is always a feminine touch but is reworked in interesting ways, i.e. as a sweatshirt or in bright colors.

6. Denim

The au courant news in denim is the retro look from the 1980s, acid washed denim. Denim is also strong in other silhoutettes, such as head to toe suiting and dresses.

7. Straw and Wicker Handbags

Straw and wicker handbags  just seem to spell summer and sunshine, especially with fun embellishments and leather trim.

8. Yellow

Yellow telegraphs warm weather and infuses the season with brightness and joy, in outfits as well as accessories.

9. Mixed Prints

Prints are not only bold, but are mixed together for an even bolder look.

10. Utility Look

Designers seemed to draw inspiration from Jane Goodall’s safari wardrobe, hence the return of the cargo pant, safari jacket, and minimalist utility details.

Trends by definition come and go and will not suit everyone, so choose what works in your wardrobe and with your style, mindful that runway looks get translated to more wearable options but do serve as inspiration.
