Spring Summer 19
THE FASHION LIST
Spring always presents a unique melting pot of new trends to wrap your head around, but we're here to decode the ones that are going to genuinely affect how you dress in 2019.
This spring our Fashion List introduces the trends you need to know, and more importantly how to style them. Plus, the new brand names you'll need to know and some old favourites you’ll want to rediscover.
The catwalks were awash with neutral shades for SS19. Often coming in simple and demure silhouettes like shift dresses and midi-length skirts, oatmeal, biscuit, beige, cream and blush were the colours to be seen in at fashion month. We think this colour palette is one of the chicest to be seen in whether you wear head to toe tones or opt for subtle highlights combined with denim for spring.
If you are surprised to see animal print all over again you shouldn’t be, it’s is still a huge spring/summer 2019 trend according to the runways. With Leading brands such as Burberry, Gucci and Calvin Klein leading the way, it’s easy to see how this has filtered down, with even denim brands joining in this season with additions in animal print from Frame, J Brand and AG on your favourite fits. Leopard, tiger and zebra prints stride into our edit for spring and we excitedly welcome some exclusive prints from Rebecca Taylor, Rixo and Lily & Lionel too.
More is definitely more this season when it comes to mixing statement prints. Confidently combine print-on-print by picking tonal shades, like an all-neutral palette, for a stand out look to take you through to summer. Lily & Lionel are really paving the way for print this season, with their classic midi skirts and silk blouses looking more elegant and grown-up than ever before.
A subtle, bohemian femininity swept through the catwalks for SS19 in a delicate haze as we witnessed the intricate combination of lace, crochet, broderie anglaise and embroidery. These long-sleeved, often peasant styles are just the kind of throw-on tops we love to style with cropped jeans so you can imagine our excitement in waiting for warmer weather to arrive. Look for delicate finishes and beautiful fabric application from the likes of Vanessa Bruno, Rebecca Taylor and Velvet this season.
THE DRESS SHOP
It’s very much about the dress this season as a stand-alone piece. Prairie dresses made an impact on the runways, especially at Erdem and Coach, and these often long-length dresses are full of whimsical details, femininity and romanticism. Pared back and ready to throw on with effortless ease, Rebeca Taylor presents a range of dresses you can’t help but fall in love with. With vintage inspired silhouettes and delicate garden florals, dress them up with sandals, or dress down by layering over a denim jacket.
