Fashion Essentials For 2019
We are 3 weeks into 2019 and many of us are still basking in the “new year, new me” ambiance. With all the changes happening it’s only right that our style choices match our new mindset.
Fashion week has already happened in Milan and Paris where designs from top designers were showcased. This gave us a chance to preview some of the newest fashions and products dropping in the coming months.
All eyes are eagerly awaiting fresh designs for 2019.
And of course, with every new season comes new trends. While spring and summer are still a few months away, its never too early to talk about your Fashion Essentials for 2019. Bold patterns and tons of color will reign supreme this year.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Fashion Essentials For 2019
Yellows, Pinks, Greens oh my.
Intense hues are back with a vengeance this year after a 2018 flooded with everything pastel. Catch everyone from the Migos to Ashley Graham making a statement in these electrifying colors. If you’re in the mood to stand out in a box of basic Crayolas this might be your best move.
Throw that bomber and parka in the back of the closet. It’s time to step up your outerwear with a tastefully tailored coat or lavish fur for winter and fall. In lieu of the uniform-like black puffer jacket, invest in a fitted plaid trench coat or a sleek taupe faux fur coat from your favorite street boutique. These gorgeous overcoats will add a dash of luxury to your exclusive streetwear pieces.
The year is 2019 but the sixties are back in full effect.
Well not exactly, but tie-dye pieces are making a vibrant splash once again. However, this isn’t your parent’s hippie print from back in the day. Gone are the DIY shirts made in the bathroom sink. These retro vibes are being remixed with a high fashion spin focusing on bright turquoises, bold oranges, and warm lavenders. Together, this makes these pieces a psychedelic new groove.
You know your favorite pair of jeans, the one you would wear every day if you could?
It’s about time to wave goodbye.
Slide down to your neighborhood store and find you a pair of printed pants to rock all year long. These printed pants come in a variety of patterns from plaid to floral to leopard print and are a fashionable alternative to joggers. You can comfortably pair them with your favorite hoodie, denim jacket, and sneakers. Feel free to take a risk like Travis $cott or Jaden Smith and grab a pair.
Go ahead, add some flair to your life.
Leave the backpacks and duffles at home and grab a hands-free bag to hold all your must-haves as you run around town.
Sling bags provide a fashionable and efficient way for us to carry our belongings. With debuts from Louis Vuitton and Rhude adding these functional accessories to their collections and streetwear brands the likes of Palace and Supreme dropping exclusive fanny packs carrying the trend into this year, sling bags are steadily becoming a mainstay.
Sling it to the front for easy access or to the back so it’s out of the way while you’re on the move.
As a 90s kid, this is a dream come true.
The bold nostalgia of the early nineties is making a fresh return in an animated way. Back is the Fresh Prince swag, In Living Color graphics, and Saved By The Bell styles of the nineties. The retro designs are complete with vibrant word art, boxy shirts, over-sized jackets, and light wash denim.
Throw on your favorite boy band or Batman vintage tee, your go-to jeans, and some worn-in sneakers and reminisce. If you ever felt like reliving your childhood, now is a perfect time.
There you have it. These are the heavy hitting essentials for your 2019 wardrobe. We’re seeing a nice mix of trends carrying over from last year along with some fresh additions straight off the runway. These selections are guaranteed to keep your style on point while you go after your goals all year long.
