2019 is promising to be fascinating, if only because the most-popular trends feeding in from the catwalks right now are as in-your-face and attention grabbing as a peacock dancing for a mate! We’re not kidding: neon hues, bold pattern suits, and an assortment of animal prints are just a few that come to mind, and with contemporary female fashion turning to styles that celebrate self-empowerment, comfort and individuality, it’s not hard to see why.

 

We know what you’re thinking. These extravagant styles may seem perfectly fitting for an evening out with the girls or hitting the club, but how do they translate into an everyday look? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered with these 3 top trends that’ll fit into your casual style effortlessly to form your signature look. Plus some tips on how to style them so that you can rock your look with the right attitude and ace your new year style goals in record time.

 

 

BUTTON- UP BABE

 

You’ve seen them on various style influencers across the ‘Gram, but now you’re about to see them everywhere! The simple fastener becomes fashionable. If the collections of Khaite and Christopher Esber are anything to go by, this sartorial detailing is going to be stitched onto every skirt, blouse, dress and pair of trousers that designers can get their hands on this season.

 

Why It Works

 

Forget accessorising with just jewellery, when artfully placed and prominently oversized, buttons provide an impactful way of elevating basic everyday outfits to not-so-basic Chic in an instant! We suggest you go for minimalist silhouettes such as wide leg trousers, midi length skirts and dresses, as they’ll allow the button detailing to stand out as a focus point.

 

   

GRAPHIC GODDESS

 

When you think of graphic tees, visions of a favourite rock band or an assortment of 90’s girl-power slogans come to mind. Well, that still seems to be ringing true in the 2019 designs swarming the market right now. The nostalgia hysteria of 2018 has rolled on over into new year with all things 90’s still trending, such as scrunchies, dungarees and crop tops, but now we’re pleased to announce that the graphic tee has become the latest 90’s fad to step back into the spotlight.

 

Why It Works

 

Although graphic tees have reached cult status several times over the years, we’re still glad to see street style influencers in a wide range of styles, emphasising that they are still as popular and versatile as ever. Whether you prefer a chic, edgy, rockish or sophisticated vibe, a cool graphic tee is easily customisable to suit any style. They can be worked into your existing wardrobe by pairing them with your blazers, high-waisted jeans, shorts or maxi skirts to name just a few.

 

Whatever print you go for this season, just remember it provides a sort of ‘description’ of your personality, so go bold, have fun and style your slogans with a side of sass!

 

   

CAREFREE CHIC

 

There is something so carefree and comfortable about cotton and linen. These natural fabrics stand as a stark contrast to the crinkled, creased and highly-textured styles of the season. With designers such as Maison Cleo and Orseund Iris showcasing many milkmaid-esque styles in their SS/19 collections, it’s clear to see that western fashion is making a return to the idylls of promoting natural imperfection with billowing blouses, flowing skirts, and loose fit shirts.

 

Why It Works

 

Not only do these fabrics allow your skin to breathe so you can feel comfortable all day, but they also promote a more playful side to fashion. Quiet greys, contemporary whites and blushing nudes create an airy and ethereal elegance when paired with puff sleeve blouses and dainty wrap dresses, while deeper, more rich colours help to add a bit of vibrancy and energy to your winter wardrobes.
