One of the main reasons why I adore trends is because they talk about ‘what’s next’. A counter argument would translate that sort of behavior as FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), yet I would explain my attitude towards change as excitement about the future. As a fashion journalist I study the past of this industry because it helps me get a quicker understanding of recurring trends to be differentiated from real novelties. If you are ready to embrace the trends just make sure that what you are wearing expresses a continuity. For your next shopping adventure, fill in some gaps and refresh your choices with new cool things. Make a smart mix of heritage and avant-garde! Best example of that sort of eclecticism: the Gucci Pre-Fall 2019 Ad Campaign at the Archaeological Park of Selinunte in Sicily (picture to the right).
They are either plain monochromes or mixed with neons and the red of passion. Just shop for beige, taupe, tan, sand, ecru, creme, blush and nude hues.
This is the No1 accessory for off-duty model looks.
Most importantly the Acne Studios Musubi Micro Bag. During the recent Couture 2019 shows every important fashionista was holding one – or a micro style from another brand. Jacquemus is the king of necklace bags right now!
We already are into high-waist, so why not paperbag?
Roomy Blazer & Bermuda Shorts
A boxy-fit blazer is paired with bermuda shorts in the summer. Forget the pants!
Gathered or just padded, big shoulders are a big thing.
From trims to a full-on feather look, it is really the outmost of ‘Camp’ pleasures!
Lingerie-Style Lace Insets & Trims
They infuse your day-to-evening looks with a decadent boudoir element.
Ruffles and Tulle
Midi-to-maxi-length tutus and multiple ruffles will shift the focus to femininity.
Especially from the collections of Dundas, Halpern, and Galvan!
Square Sunglasses & Square-Toe Shoes
Additionally to figure-elongating pointed toes, try square-toe slim-strap sandals. Square frames – as well as round ones – are prevalent options for sunnies. They are either futuristic or corporate-looking.
