As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we’ll soon be moving on to Europe to the shows in London, Milan, and Paris. Even though we still have weeks of ogling over all of the glorious Spring 2019 collections ahead of us, we can safely say there were some strong trends to emerge from those of New York—ones that we’re destined to see make it to the streets as soon as winter begins to thaw out.
Much like Fall 2018 was a nod to the ‘80s across the board, we’re seeing a ton of ‘70s references for Spring 2019. From tie-dye prints to oversized sunnies and headscarves, there was a definite nod to the era—whether hippy-dippy or disco glam—seen all over the runways, from Proenza Schouler to Kate Spade. Throw in some lingerie-inspired lace, statement-making print blocking, and leopard print (which, by the way, is still going strong)? Well, we have a pretty interesting (and colorful) season ahead of us.
Check out the nine best trends to come from this week’s Spring 2019 shows, below.
Hippie babes, rejoice! Tie-dye is back, and it’s more elegant than ever. From the traditional summer camp rainbows making its way onto blazers at R13 to the more subdued, chic watercolor effects at Proenza Schouler, we saw the psychedelic pattern making its comeback, only now it's all grown-up.
