Finally, spring has sprung and it’s time to get sartorially ready for a new season of feel-good fashion filled with hope, happiness and a whole lot of…beige, apparently.
New season fashion brings with it a flurry of excitement, moodboards galore and plenty of careful Pinterest planning. It’s a chance to break free of our winter slump and awaken our wardrobe to the wilderness of spring and boy, are we ready for a shopping spree.
Rumours (and runways) have it that beloved animal prints and muted brown palettes are here to stay while cycling shorts and pedal pushers are ready for their second wind. On the beige front, it’s hard to beat such a timeless classic, one that evokes an air of chic sophistication. For those concerned about keeping it too conservative, gold jewellery and all of the accessories instantly bring to life a head-to-toe neutral look. Warm up the beige and provide contrast in your look where possible.
Those still remaining sceptical on the cycling shorts front will revel in the knowledge of an additional, much more sensible shorts trend vying for centre stage during spring-summer 2019. Enter the boyish alternative to our favourite summer go-to as skirts are given the season off to make room for looser and more tailored takes on the classic short. Even better, make this season the year to take on the short suit. Keep it casual with blazers left unbuttoned revealing a classic white tee underneath, complete with trainers or elegant sandals. Soften the look with a romantic blouse to channel all of the date night vibes and watch as tailored shorts go from zero to hero for the entirety of spring-summer 2019.
There’s an air of California cool about the place as SS19 brings trends of boho chic with more of an undone, relaxed coolness to shop shelves and designer collections. As for the micro-bags that shot to cult status last season, the time has come for the big bag to regain the throne as tote bags are finally back in action.
The wild card of the season comes from the revival of 60s tie-dye. We’re eyeing up more subtle takes on the trend with tie-dye beach maxis a la Prabal Gurung but for the daring amongst us, we’re all for Stella McCartney’s tie-dye two pieces that stole the hearts of the front row fash pack at the SS19 shows. Consider it your ease into the vibrant, zesty hues of the neon trend, certainly not for the faint-hearted but a trend that commands attention and power to all who dare to wear it.
