Spring/ Summer 2019 Color Trends (part 2)

 

  1. Pressed Rose

Princess to the core, and light as air, Pressed Rose can encompass all of the shameless femininity which was so iconic on the runways. This precious pastel pink holds a touch of warmth, especially when compared to Sweet Lilac – its sibling.

Marc Jacobs’ spring collection was replete with feminine opulence and childish luxury, so this color is shown up both in merengue dresses and in spring accessories. The same notes also apply to the more over-the-top feminine collection which was presented at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi.

This color trend even made an appearance on more subdued runways such as Oscar de la Renta, Pyer Moss, and Prada.

  1. Sweet Lilac

Sweet Lilac – baby pink – has a touch of lavender, that makes it become one of the coolest color options in the spring/ summer 2019 trends. It is a gentle color which is feminine but not sickly sweet. On this season, designers used it in both minimalist, sleek designs and some girlish creations.

Valentino brought the ultimate dress in Sweet Lilac: a simple dress with puffy sleeves, a voluminous skirt, combined with a straw hat to create a rustic look which avoided being melodramatic or sentimental. At Rodarte, Sweet Lilac was the color choice for dresses overflowing with lace, tulle, and ruffles.

There was also a lot of Sweet Lilac on Chanel’s runway because the pastel shade works well with its iconic tweed.

  1. Light Lavender

Light Lavender is another pastel which appears in the spring/ summer 2019 color trends. It is a cool shade working well with softer yellows, or a deep neutral like Brown Granite or Eclipse. This shade showed up most beautifully in a wrap dress by Kate Spade New York, where it was paired with matching headdress and boots.

It was also used for a not so hyper-feminine option at Marc Jacobs – a combination between boyish blazer and shorts, matched with a large bow around the neck.

 

 

MEN’S ATHLEISURE STYLE AND TREND

 

It started with the people who usually go to the gym before work, stumble into the office in a style consisting part gym wear and part office attire. Someone realized that this actually looks really cool and so the look easily stuck!

It doesn’t matter whether you play sports or not. In fact, including the sports element gives us the opportunity to make up brand new words such as ‘athleisure’, which are really fun to say.

Here’s a list of what you should/should not do when it comes to including casual sportswear into your wardrobe:

Sweatshirts

Far removed from the toweling versions and heavy jersey, we’re mentioning sweatshirts which were originally made for hobby athletes. Mesh panels. Lightweight fabric. Breathable, everyday-wearable garment technologies which help the top athletes in the world shave milliseconds off, help the joggers adjust their body temperature and help you be cool on a bus to work.

Designed with ergonomics in mind, slim-cut sweatshirts can add an all-new dimension to an outfit. Fits tend to run quite snug but it’s a good idea to wear sporty sweatshirts under a minimal overcoat in winter or on its own if it eventually warms up again.

Tailored Joggers

Tailored Joggers tend to come in two types: the everyday tapered jogger and the slimline jogger. They might not be extremely different from each other except for the materials.

The extreme tailored jogger is a major athleisure staple and in fact, they are extremely comfy. Sitting in the office in them for the whole day is like wearing “nothing at all”. For those who have brave souls and can complete control over their boners, the famous go-to sportswear brands such as ADIDAS can’t be overlooked and usually offer a wide range of styles at reasonable price points.

If you’d rather be safe with some tapered joggers, you can try higher-end brands such as Ronnie Fieg’s Kith NYC and the French streetwear label Pigalle.

 

Spring/ Summer 2019 Color Trends (part 1)

With the fashion weeks done, finally, we can sit back and determine what the spring/ summer 2019 color trends will be. While the spring 2019 fashion trends almost seem like about the mixture of colors and prints, the spring/ summer 2019 color trends are notable with the pastels making a recurrence, along with warm and rich shades which actually felt a little autumnal.

Toffee, Mango Mojito, and some dark greens such as Pepper Stem and Terrarium Moss gave us the aforementioned autumn vibes, but their sophisticated charm cannot be denied. Yellow, both in the form of Pastel Yellow, Lemon Verbena, Aspen Gold, and Turmeric, is the most definitive of the spring/ summer 2019 runway colors. This cheery and unisex color is also a favorite color in the spring/ summer 2019 nail trends.

The other colors in the spring/ summer 2019 trends include various shades of pink and some gorgeous blues. There is the list of the top spring/ summer 2019 color trends below.

1. Powdery Ballet Pink

Starting the list of the spring/ summer 2019 color trends, we have the powdery ballet pink, the blush rose color which is also very versatile and perfect to combine with the other colors on this list. From princess-worthy evening dresses to elegant separates to outerwear options, this nude-toned blush color was showed up on all major runways.

With a couple of breathtaking dresses, Brandon Maxwell embraced the most perfect powdery ballet pink shade. Marc Jacobs took this pink shade to the next level when matching it with gentle fabric rose details to create one of the most feminine dresses for this spring.

In addition, the powdery ballet pink interpretation by Boss was much more elegant, where we saw an effortless trench coat paired with office-ready tailored pants, and a shirt worn underneath.

Blush pink also appeared in many shades on the runways of Diane von Furstenberg, Tom Ford, Dion Lee, and others.

 

6 Sporty Chic Looks for Work and Play

 

Now, we won’t talk about wearing yoga pants these days. Not because we don’t love this style, but it’s time to try something new! Let’s try old school sports jerseys, varsity jackets, graphic tees matched up with skinny jeans, leather skirts, or tennis skorts. Why not? It’s a great combo of sporty chic and comfort. So try these athletic-inspired looks to make you become a top contender!

  1. Chicest on the Team

Priscilla Ono and Amber Rose teamed up to create the fashion-forward line Rose and Ono for fearless women of all sizes and shapes. Try the oversized dresses by Rose and Ono to be the chicest chick on the team.

  1. Manhattan Beach Varsity

We all may love the simplicity of combining together a tennis skirt or skort with chambray and Converse. Add a little sparkle with a statement necklace and stackable bangles, and you will be able to strut your stuff down center court.

  1. Flawless at the Festival

There’s no other more suitable word to describe this sporty chic look other than FIERCE. The hip-hugging flannel, roaring panther varsity tee, black baseball cap, the tough leather bomber jacket, and badass combat boots  – we definitely don’t want to go against this combo.

  1. Varsity V-Neck

Recently, denim cutoffs have become a favorite fashion trend. Matching a comfy v-neck with a varsity stripe detail and a swipe of classic red lipstick seems to be the perfect Sunday outfit for us.

  1. Floral Bomber

A floral bomber always delivers a visual sucker punch. Try combining a floral bomber with a simple v-neck tee and basic jeans to create a sporty chic look.

  1. Back to Basics

Get a minimalist look which is sure to knock it out of the park by trying a basic sheath dress combined with a sleek baseball cap. A baby blue dress has enough seaming to stand alone. Then a baseball cap is a perfect choice if you’ve run out of dry shampoo or slept through the alarm clock after a sweaty workout.

How to make sandals part of your winter wardrobe

Although it’s commonly thought that sandals are only suitable for the summer months, the most stylish and fashionable influencers and bloggers are making a new item called the winter sandal.

If you want to try different looks, follow these guides on how to look chic in winter with your favorite pair, despite the temperature.

Cozy

You can take style inspiration from Pernille Teisbaek. She kept cozy by wearing a fur-lined pair of sandals with neutral shocks. Then keep the rest of your outfit casual with jeans and your favorite jacket to stay warm on the winter weekends.

In fact, the controversial sandals and socks trend is back this winter. The bold look has been doing the rounds on the circuit of street style once again. Whether you love or hate this style, it is worth revisiting this season.

Simple

Although an elegant sandal may be more suitable with an evening soirée, it can create a different feel to your daily wardrobe in winter. Try making the layered ensembles look elegant by wearing a simple heeled sandal with straps (not in case of having to walk outside for too long).

Clashing

If you are more of a minimalist than a maximalist when it comes to style, then look away. This look isn’t for the faint-hearted, but when pulled off right, it can really make an impact. Pair bright colored tights in one shade or patterned logo tights with a shoe for a look so extra that Carrie Bradshaw herself would approve.

Full-On Fluffy Sandals

We’re used to fluffy slides, but how about fluffy sandals? That’s a new one for us to try this winter.

Ugg has created the ‘Fluff Yeah’ sandals, which is covered in sheepskin from top to bottom and comes in various shades. It gives the perfect way to keep the warmth for the winter sandals.

So, now you know how to make sandals part of your wardrobe in winter, but are you brave enough to try them?
