In 2018 we saw neon Crayola colours, 1980/90s-styles revamped, old school sportswear and logo mania champion the High Street. Not to mention bright coloured kilts and animal print dominate the fashion world.
Looking forward to the year ahead – and with the door firmly closed on 2018 – Aberdeen personal stylist Hayley Jane Charles makes 2019 style predictions for both men and women, and identifies the key trends for Society readers.
From the revived update of the two-piece, to elegant lace redesigned, there’s plenty to keep fashion lovers excited.
Keeping it neutral
Who says beige has to be boring?
Neutral tones are making a come back in 2019 with colours such as moleskin, nude, grey, tan and brown all appearing on the high-street.
Follow in the footsteps of Burberry or Faragamo by basing your whole outfit on one tone which helps create an elegant and premium look.
And for those who aren’t keen on committing to one colour alone, neutral tones pair perfectly with black, denim or metallic that are easily mixed up to suit your own taste.
The two-piece and co-ords were huge key trends in 2018 and they certainly won’t be leaving any time soon. Instead, they have been transformed and updated for the new year, bringing a fresh new perspective.
2019 will see the two-piece come back brighter than ever with bold tones and primary colours filling the high-street and catwalks.
Lace it up
Lace is the perfect romantic texture for spring/summer 2019, however, this time around it has been reinvented and modernised.
Expect to see this popular material being combined with other materials including leather, sequins and chiffon to create a whole new stylish look. Replicated by some British designers including Alexander McQueen and Victoria Beckham, this trend is anticipated to be a big one.
Bold is beautiful, and there’s nothing more beautiful than bright prints.
In a stark contrast to some of the more feminine looks we will see in 2019, bold, stand out prints are back with a vengeance, taking their influence from previous trends such as sports luxe and designers like Balenciaga and Versace. Graffiti prints, stripes and chain appliques will be huge in both male and female fashion. For this trend it really is the bolder the better, so don’t be afraid to experiment and clash colours and patterns.
