6 spring/summer 2019 trends you can wear now

Another season of London Fashion Week has come to a close, and whilst Milan and Paris are yet to come, the main spring/summer 2019 fashion trends are starting to emerge.

Designers like Roksanda, Rejina Pyo and Alexa Chung are leading the way, with trends that we're excited about for next year. So excited about actually, that we're going to start wearing them now. Here's how:

Oversized, fitted, 70s style or more retro, pastel-coloured or checked... suits were all over the catwalk at LFW, from Alexa Chung to Eudon Choi and JW Anderson. There is literally a style to suit every personality, and of course the beauty of them is that they're the perfect transitional piece. Wear them now with a silk blouse or rollneck and ankle boots.

Love it or hate it, you just can't dismiss neon next season, it's literally everywhere. At NYFW, Jeremy Scott backed the lime green hue, while Naeem Khan and Sies Marjan flashed a bit of orange and pink. Over in London, House of Holland was all about neon, while Natasha Zinko closed the week with fluro green and yellow. Dip into it now with accessories to lift a monochrome outfit.

Puff sleeves

Go big or go home is the motto for SS18, well, when it comes to sleeves at least. I've loved them at Rejina Pyo on maxi tea dresses, at Richard Quinn on overcoats and shirts at Christopher Kane. The message is clear: go big or go home.

Millennial pink might have been put on the back-burner with the arrival of sunshine yellow, but it's very much back in the limelight for spring. Emilia Wickstead, Erdem, Roksanda and Delpozo were just a few of the many designers to make us see la vie en rose.

Sheer layering

Dare to bare for SS19, as sheer tulle and lace are taking over. Think see-through jackets at Rejina or OTT tulle at Roksanda and Simone Rocha. Th key is to layer: wear a sheer shirt this season, under a corduroy blazer to protect your modesty.

Shop now: MARNI Checked cotton-organza shirt for £710 from Net-A-Porter


Left to right: Preen, Roksanda, Emilia Wickstead

Shop now: PRINTED BLOUSE WITH BOW for £29.99 from Zara

Last season it was polka dots, and for SS19 the ladylike detail of choice is bows aplenty. They ranged from discreet finishing touches at Preen and Roksanda, to bold and oversized and Emilia Wickstead. We want more.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
