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.
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.
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.
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.
