Recent trends in fashion

OVERSIZED HATS
If you so much as glanced at your Instagram feed last summer, you no doubt spotted a Jacquemus La Bomba hat. Now entirely synonymous with SS18, it seems brands are vying for similar cult status next season by producing their own delicious incarnations that we already can’t get enough of.

SENSIBLE SHORTS
Cycling shorts may have stolen the show last year, but – and thank the Lord – next season things are looking a little looser. Tailored, micro, knee-length… skirts may be given a few months off as we all look to the more boyish alternative for our new summer go-to and easy to get as well from sites as https://top10bestpro.com and many others.

TIGHT PLEATS
Having had a successful run last year, pleats are back for SS19 but this time they’re a whole lot more intricate. Tighter than before, the micro pleat provides maximum impact as it generates not only more movement but also a more fluctuating silhouette as it expands and contracts. Science-y, eh?

TIE-DYE
I know. We were all surprised at the recurrence of this 60s print, but alas it seems tie-dye truly is back in fash. Admittedly, 2019’s take on the trend is a hell of a lot chicer. Make like Stella with a no-holds-barred approach and opt for a bold matching two-piece, or – if you’re anything like us – you’ll likely favour a more subtle beach maxi.

FANCY FLATS
While models over at Halpern, Ashish and David Koma were teetering precariously atop stiletto heels, things at Valentino and Simone Rocha were a whole lot more down to earth. About six inches closer to said earth, to be precise. And boy are we looking forward to spending next season in comfy, fancy flats for the sake of #fashun.
