The Spring/Summer 2019 runway shows seem like they happened forever ago, but the dynamic new trends they launched are only just hitting the shelves. With warmer months nowhere in sight, trends like neon athleisure and featherweight feminine frocks are looking mighty appealing right about now. And while we’re not the types to drastically revamp our wardrobes simply because a new season is upon us, we firmly believe in investing in a few key pieces to amplify what already exists.

In the round-up, below, keep an eye out for trends that mix and match well together – think: earthy accessories and utilitarian separates – because a lot of spring trends complement each other in unique ways. From sleek, vibrant suiting to tie-dye tees, we’ve rounded up the best pieces to buy for Spring/Summer 2019 right now. Bonus: they span the price spectrum of affordable to aspirational, so there’s something for everyone.

1

Haute Hippie

Gingham, polka dot, and plaid are all patterns that’ve had their moment in the spotlight in the past few season, but Spring/Summer 2019 calls for something a little different. Witness the return of tie-dye, which appeared on the runways everywhere from Proenza Schouler to Prada – and everywhere in between.

Functional Fashion

Utilitarian styles are all the rage for the spring season, meaning everything from camo and cargo shorts to crisp military-inspired jackets have garnered a co-sign from the fashion establishment.

3

Pretty Chic

Sweet patterns, floaty fabrics, confectionery pastels, flattering fits – feminine designs are in ample supply for the Spring/Summer 2019 season, and they couldn’t be prettier.

4

Power Puff

Puffed shoulders and sleeves on both tops and dresses are a fun way to add drama to your look without going overboard. While strong shoulders are often associated with 1980s silhouettes, these versions are more romantic and feminine.

5

Wild Side

Big cat prints roared to life over the Fall/Winter 2018 season, but it turns out that all kinds of animal prints are on the menu for Spring/Summer 2019. From snakeskin and reptile prints to zebra stripes and leopard spots, surfaces are a lot more eye-catching this time around.

6

Assertive Suiting

It’s time to retire those ultra-slouchy silhouettes and trade them in for one of spring’s sleek new shapes. Bright hues, massive lapels, major shoulders, and short lengths on the bottom are the factors uniting this season’s crop of bold, assertive suits.

7

Flashing Neon

Eye-popping acid brights have replaced the rainbow trend for Spring/Summer 2019 – read: Day-Glo orange, fluorescent yellow, and hot-pink hues worn as accessories, separates, or even head-to-toe looks (if you’re especially brave).

8

Of the Earth

Raw textures like woven straw and handsome leathers in every shade of neutral under the sun are the winning way to accessorize this spring season.
