From the return of the power shoulder to the influencer-approved boiler suit, these are the Spring Summer ’19 trends you’ll be wearing before you know it.
THE BOW SHOW
The bigger the better this season when it comes to accessorising. Tying up your shirt sleeves in dainty knots à la Delpozo is sure to win over the masses on Instagram.
PRINTS ON THE PROWL
An abundance of animal prints prowled the streets this season and by the looks of the SS19 runways, they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Hallelujah for those of us who already have a wardrobe full of leopard print love.
LACE FOR DAYS
Usually a fabric reserved for the winter months, lace is making an unanticipated foray into spring/summer. Victoria Beckham introduced us to work-appropriate shirts forged from the romantic material while Preen reminded us that ruffles are back for another round this season.
THE POWER SHOULDER
The eighties proved a major source of reference this season with Emilia Wickstead sending models down the runway in bold short suits (complete with supersized collars and shoulder pads), while Roksanda was more subtle in its approach with silky co-ords clinched in at the waist – very Pretty Woman. Either way, larger than life shoulders are back with a bang!
The boiler suit is hung up in every high street store this season with bloggers going potty for Topshop’s denim number. If you haven’t invested yet then make sure to hurry, as the trend is only just getting started. Team your outfit with trainers to tackle the day and throw on kitten heels to dance the night away.
Clashing your prints is the simplest way to nail one of the season’s most talked about styling techniques. The designers at Rixo are experts when it comes to juxtaposing animal spots with polka dots while Preen never fails to give lessons in Insta-worthy clashing.
Whether you decide to tackle two trends in one with a leopard print scarf or fancy tying a silky number around your waist Burberry style – an outfit is just not complete without this season’s biggest accessory. Try tying your scarf in your hair if the necktie feels too daring!
