We have done the research and compiled a handy visual guide to show how the Spring Summer 2019 trends are playing out on the high street. With outfits for work, casual daytime, smart casual weekender-looks and evening options, it’s too tempting not to buy a few wardrobe updates this Spring!
The Pantone Institute has published its colour palette for Spring Summer 2019, and varying shades of yellow are present: turmeric, aspen gold and mango mojito. Tutti frutti shades were seen on the catwalk, so a splash of this vibrant hue will not only lift more classic colours, but set you right on trend.
Swing all the way to the other end of the colour spectrum and you have another key look for this season – beige. If you dressed head-to-toe in beige this spring, you could confidently put your best fashion foot forward! And honestly, this is a much easier trend to pull off than feathers and fringe, 70’s crochet, clashing floral prints and wetsuits, which also made their way down the catwalk!
OK, no one wants to be camouflaged against a fence panel, so let’s inject some colour. Shades of pink are also ‘trendy’ this spring, with Living Coral, Pink Peacock and Sweet Lilac all making an appearance. We’ve created two looks that incorporate pink, fashionable ‘Princess Blue’ (think a majestic Royal Blue) and the all-important spring blazer. Black or blue blazer – you decide!
Lilac and Lavendar promise to soften your spring wardrobe. We have contrasted this pretty tone with dark hues. Remember to balance a skinny pant with a chunky or oversized jumper.
Again, lots of trends ticked in one outfit here. Bike shorts and blazers are a hot combo, but we’ve opted for a more flattering knee-length short. Animal print is still around, and fiery red is on the Pantone Institute’s swatch. Reds that make you think of a deep, red wine are the way to go. Two different outfits, one more suited for the workplace and one a smart-casual weekend look, both a stylish way to make a nod to this season’s trends.
As well as being a fashionable colour this spring, this pink dress also covers off the floral-print trend. Fabrics that have a lightness of touch are popular, as are small bags, making this outfit ideal.
Boiler suits are back. What’s clever about the boiler suit is its versatility. You could wear heels and statement jewellery for an evening look, or team it with trainers and a larger handbag for a casual daytime option.
