The Biggest 2018 Fashion Trends To Keep In Your Wardrobe For 2019
Who says that you should chuck 2018’s biggest trends now that 2019 has rolled in? More than ever, we’re even celebrating the biggest fashion trends of last year and keeping them in our wardrobes for an even more stylish new year.
And if you haven’t jumped on these trends yet, you’re not yet behind! Here are some of the most stylish wears we’ve seen that we’re keeping and catching up on this year.
1. Animal Prints
We’ve seen some big faux furs and animal prints in many F/W collections, but it seems that the trend is spilling over to the new year as brands continue to bring it to their S/S collections. From heavy coats and bulky sweaters, we’ll be seeing animal prints in beautiful light dresses for a fresh start this year.
Fringe started out as a way of preventing a cut piece of fabric from unraveling when the clothing is not hemmed. Now, it is a fashion statement that comes and goes every season, from long and flowy dresses to accessories like bags and shoes. Fringe is a great way to add drama and femininity to any look, while adding that vintage and country feel.

From statement belts to buckle shoes, we’ve been seeing the return of buckles that give can give an edgy touch to any outfit. You can cinch and flaunt your waist with a thick buckle belt over a long dress or coat, or top an outfit with a statement pair of buckle heels or boots.
4. '60s Florals
As some say, floral is the future of print. It’s because floral prints never really go out of style and are great ways to easily add a feminine touch to an ensemble. Floral prints reminiscent of our grandmother’s couch have resurfaced in easy to wear dresses and coats. And speaking of grandma, we’d love to wear Emily Blunt’s Oscar dela Renta crocheted pullover, which is something of an elevated sweater that grandma would knit for Christmas.
5. Glitter, Sequins, and Silk
We’re bringing the party wear out of the club and into our day wear! Over-the-top glitters and sequins shouldn’t be limited to the night-life scene, but flaunted and dressed up into nice daywear or evening wear. With these shimmers and the silhouettes, you can catch every eye at every turn.
My 3 favorite moments for Holiday, in stores TODAY! Sparkle and shine are always necessary this time of year, whether you’re clinking your glass at a fancy party, rewatching The Princess Switch on the couch (??????) or just walking down the grocery stores aisle alone on a Friday night because you work a lot and you didn’t have time to get actual groceries and prepare a sensible dinner so you throw Apple Jacks and ramen in to the cart, run home and turn on The Princess Switch like I said, and lay there on the couch and zone out pretending you’re a princess in some weird made up Netflix country instead of on your couch in Brooklyn eating a mixture of Ramen and Apple Jacks, YOU KNOW?! (??????????????????????????????) Anyways, for any and all of the above mentioned occasions, you may need a little shine, obviously, so head to the link in bio for a retailer near you ??
6. Neo Boho
More and more brands are bringing a modern touch to the usual hippie and boho style. Boho doesn’t have to look costume-y or over-the-top anymore. We’re talking neutral and sun-kissed hues, flowy and light fabrics, and knits, made more modern by reigning back the silhouette and the layers.

7. Reinterpreted Suits
Women have taken back the art of wearing the suit. From office wear to red carpet looks, female suits have really become classics, more than trends. But this year, we’re bound to see more experimentation with the classic suit: bright-colored hues, swishy fabrics, oversized, and even deconstructed pieces. It doesn’t even have to be a pantsuit anymore, much like Kylie Jenner’s Tom Form tailored double-breasted dress at the MTV Video Music Awards.

8. Modern Feminine
The couture gowns of the '50s and '60s era are being reworked as shorter and less precious pieces, bringing back the femininity and fancy of the era but making it a bit more practical for everyday use. We’re loving stuff from newest Metro icon Vania Romoff, who is channeling feminine fabrics and silhouettes into more casual outfits.
In the garden of the Mexico City modernist masterpiece that is the Casa Barragan, the photographer Paola Vivas utilizes blunt color blocking to contrast the mix of femininity and physical power evoked by this allusion to the escaramuza horsewomen, key inspirations for the #DiorCruise 2019 collection by #MariaGraziaChiuri. With all eight editorials in the Mexico-themed #DiorMagazine issue being shot in that country exclusively by women, our Creative Director's collection has been the subject of some highly personal interpretations. © @PaolaVivasphotography
8. '90s Riverdale
Fast-track a bit more into the '90s and you’ve got high school fashion and accessories you won’t be afraid to look back to. We welcome back the chunky sneakers, the oversized shirts and jackets, and the bright-colored shades of the '90s. Even Barbie is back, channeled by Kylie Jenner in bold and bright prints, and by Bella Hadid in crop tops and knee-high boots.
10. Micro Sunglasses
And speaking of the resurgence of '90s fashion, we throw back to the John Lennon days with these tiny glasses that have taken over the street and red carpet fashion. Whether it’s Bella’s cat-eye frames or Rihanna’s full-rimmed golden glasses, there’s no reason to not wear these shades in or out of the sun.
11. Giant Pockets
Don’t you hate it when just run out of storage for your essentials? Pockets are always welcome in any outfit—so why not take advantage of it and make it the statement element of your clothing? With these giant in-your-face pockets or Carolina Herrerra’s hidden gown pockets, you’ll always have room for a candy or two.
