Spring 2019 is hitting store shelves, this means it is time to figure out what to keep from last year, and what we need to add to our closets in the new year. The runways brought us several new, and repeating trends for the upcoming warm weather season. Some trends made it from the runway to store shelves, while others, never made it off the catwalk. Here is a list of trends which have made the transition from runway to street for the spring 2019 season. Knowing these trends will help us all shop our closets, then, we can fill them in with what we need!
Spring 2019 shopping list: outerwear
Trench coats and athletic jackets are the two types of outerwear you will want to wear this spring 2019 season. Look for 1980s inspired track jackets, stadium jackets, and jackets in general. Classic trench coats will also be your go-to on non-athleiure days. Look for jacket length styles as well as coat length when shopping for the ultimate trench coat.
Spring 2019 shopping list: clothing
Athleisure is getting more and more popular as time marches on. Look for track suits, leggings with tops, and gym to street looks.
Anything with a 1980s vibe is hotter than hot. Look for neon hues, exaggerated sleeves, ankle boots, and gasp! Shoulder pads!
Cropped pants. How dare your pants brush up against your ankle! Wide leg pants through skin tight pants should be cropped. We need to see those fabulous booties, chunky sneakers, and colorful sandals!
Mixed print dresses are the ultimate spring dress style. Look for dresses with built-in mixed prints, v-necks, and asymmetrical lines.
Stripes are hotter than hot this spring season. Look for nautical stripes, wide, stripes, and all types of stripes.
Neon hues and pastel shades are the colors to look for this spring. Pastels may not be ground breaking, but they will be your go-to color palette if neon isn’t your thing.
Look for a continuation of menswear inspirations, blazers over jeans, plaid and mixed plaids, matching sets aka suits, and 1970s inspiration.
Spring 2019 shopping list: handbags
You can check out my full report on spring 2019 handbag trends here. In general, look for neon, pastel or black colors. Mixed colors are also a thing. Look for square shapes rather than last year’s circle, and think small but not nano.
Spring 2019 shopping list: shoes
Chunky and funky street sneakers are all the rage this spring 2019 season! Also, look for multi-color, bright footwear to brighten up your look. Kitten heels are also the go-to heel height this spring while boots are continuing to be a year-round trend; so cold spring days are solved with booties-love that!
There you have it! Look for lower priced items on trends which are continuing or seem fleeting. You can invest in classic trends such as trench coats and black handbags; that is a great way to spend your spring dollars. Since the 1980s are a growing trend, it is also a good trend to invest in this spring. When it comes to the 1970s, shop your closet or look for lower priced items since that decade’s influence may start to wane when we move into 2020.
Have a fabulous time shopping for spring 2019! Here are a few of my favorite things for the new, warm weather season.
