When it comes to fashion trends on the horizon for summer 2019, I can surely bet on certain pieces that are ought to be in every women’s closet! Fashion beyond boundaries is something that as industry leaders we strive for, because the consumer is becoming global while appreciating the local. And with this in mind, I have rounded up a few staple fashion pieces and bags to match them…that are sure to dominate in summer 2019.
Culottes are easy breezy work-wear favourites that will continue to be on top of the summer wardrobe must-haves list even this season. They are versatile pieces that complement most body types and can be easily adorned for any occasion, be it for an important office meeting or a casual evening outing. To match this style, I suggest you pair your culottes with my personal favorite, bum bags, which redefines fashion utility. Especially, the two way carry that these bags feature – transitioning from belt bags to slings – is a must have in your bag wardrobe.
‘Summers and dresses go hand-in-hand’, a saying that I believe is undeniable! Skater dresses are a classy update to the women’s wardrobe, borrowed from the retro years. Pleated dresses in milder hues and floral prints have already been featured on AW runways and I see no reason why the trend with half-pleats and wide pleats won’t be huge for summer 2019. And when it comes to accessories, a dainty clutch is something that will accentuate your feminine side when paired with this trend. Another accessory that just elevates this look are earrings in offbeat silhouettes – the hexagonal hoops in rose gold finish or long sleek beaded drops.
Knot and tie shirts
If you thought that the button down shirts were the only pieces to add to your work wardrobe, last season, then wait till you see shirts featuring knot and tie details become a quick work-wear staple this summer. Matching them with a power suit in contrast colors is my go-to summer layering hack and I top it off with block heeled sandals. And what’s even best about these shirts is its surplice neckline that accentuates feminine features in the best way. To add to this trend, you’ll also see D-ring buckle feature dresses become a summer staple for the after-hours. To this, add a slouchy tote or a textured handbag and complete your formal yet casual look in poise.
I feel that playsuits are the most comfortable pieces to adorn while you travel! They are a good choice to opt for beach dressing during the hot season, and something I adorn when I travel to and from Katarkhadak. Well, this season it’s time that you swap your regular playsuits with the ones that come in prints. While floral prints are a summer staple, you can spot some abstract variations with retro coloured stripes and surreal patterns dawn at the retail stores. To add to your summer style you can pair your playsuits with some mini backpacks featuring holographic/reflective details and see it become your favourite summer attire.
With these summer looks, it’s safe to say that you’ll spot these accessory trends everywhere in just a few short months. After all, a style icon leaves her impression not only for the clothes she wears but also for the bags she chooses for completing the look.
