Runway Report: Spring Fashion 2019

The trends to try this season

Spring 2019 runway looks
Back, Back, Back Again, Tye Dye is Back, Tell a Friend
Tie dye first made its comeback on the Summer 2018 runways with the Gucci “Oversize T-shirt with Embroidered Fishes” retailing at $950 and the Attico “Degrade Short Dress” retailing at $1350, both of which appeared as a fan favorite and has sparked the trend’s return to the runways for Spring of 2019. An ode to the ‘70s, the biggest names in fashion are incorporating this throwback into their new lines. Dior, alongside many other designers, have created a play on hippie fashion, utilizing the tie dye design in much more muted and wearable colors.
As Long as I Got my Suit & Tie…
Ladies, exhausted by the stress of finding a prom dress? Consider purchasing a tuxedo-inspired look instead. A chic alternative to evening dresses, a structured and fitted suit is a great option. Bold, 1970s-inspired suits with statement blazers and wide pant legs can be paired with a white blouse underneath for a statement look; or try wearing a v-neck blazer with nothing else underneath in preparation for a bold night out.
Who Wears Short Shorts? Chanel!
Don’t be afraid to show some skin this Spring: shorts have appeared all over the runways and are a great staple for your closet. Cycling and board shorts specifically are incredibly popular this season, paired with a longer top or oversized jacket. Experiment with different materials such as leather or denim, and try adding a bulky belt to spice your outfit up and tie it all together.
You are my Sunshine, my Only Sunshine
If you took part in the terracotta shade trend for Summer 2018, you’re in luck as the rusty red color is still in the headlines. Valentino, Versace, and Balenciaga have all incorporated sunshine colors such as burnt orange and ashy yellow into their Spring 2019 runway shows. Escada’s big return to the runway to celebrate their 40th anniversary revealed many bright colors for the upcoming season. Inspired by the ‘80s resurgence in pop culture, Escada’s collection includes: padded blazers, floral raincoats, and sharp skirts. However, if you aren’t ready to try the vibrant shades showcased in this line, pull out that terracotta tee from last year and start there!
