Within the fashion sphere, we’re always looking ahead. And when the next season is within touching distance, it’s about time we take a look at what’s right in front of us; cue your SS19 trend guide, girls!  It’s not only a round up of the hottest trends of the Summer, but the inside scoop on how to shop them now! 

It’s the trend that has a revolving door season after season, but when this sassy print works for pretty much any time of the year, how can we say no? SS19 proved that there are still various ways leopard print can be incorporated into a look to stay relevant. Burberry showed us how to clash animal print with even more animal print, just so long as you opt for tonal hues to keep the look streamline. Tom Ford used mis-matched textures to offset the print, keeping it feminine yet structured reflecting the empowered female voice that is now a force to be reckoned with.

The 80s’ called and they want their shoulder pads back… but according to the SS19 runways, they are well and truly here to stay; so say hello to exaggerated silhouettes, colour blocking and metallic moments. Alessandra Rich’s SS19 collection was rich with oversized shoulders and sumptuous shiny textures while Isabel Marrant continued with the metallic mood but balanced out looks by keeping the lower halves simplistic in colour. Balance was not the theme over on the runway at Marc Jacobs as the drama of the 80s’ took the lead with contrasting colours and bold button detailing. 

Camel is taking over this season and opinions certainly aren’t neutral. This subdued colour should not be underestimated as its versatility and sophistication has made it a staple hue among fashion power players on the SS19 runways. It was head to toe camel from Burberry and Tom Ford displaying elegance personified with feminine takes on classic shapes. Sally Lapointe elevated casual cuts with sandy tones, showing us that comfortable fashion can also be luxe. 

Floaty and flirty by nature, the whimsical prairie dress is going to be a dreamy addition to your summer wardrobe. It is the perfect piece for an effortless ‘i just threw this together’ look - which is pretty much everyone’s ideal summer dress code. Gliding down the runways of Erdem and McQueen, floral maxi dresses were the main event. Some had feminine frill detailing, others had contrasting buttons but all were as heavenly as the next. 

We were always told that less is more; but it’s 2019 now girls, so you can forget this dated fashion rule as large and in charge accessories take things over. Demanding attention down the runways of Balenciaga and Valentino, oversized accessories elevated looks to an extra status. Whilst the likes of Fendi kept it structured with reimagined shapes of the always trusty bum bag; a staple accessory taking centre stage this upcoming season
