Are you on a “New Year, new me,” phase? So is fashion.
As a constantly evolving industry, style looks to every New Year as an opportunity to highlight choices that will define the year. If you feel like upgrading or transforming your closet to reflect your intentions to change things up this year, you might want to try these fashion trends constantly mentioned in forecast this 2019.
Thanks to the always trend-setting Kim Kardashian-West, the biker shorts will have a moment this year. Not only is it comfy, it’s versatile, too. The likes of Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber experiments with a baggy sweatshirt and a cropped jacket.
Any animal print inspired from the Safari is guaranteed to make you look lit this year as it’s returning big time. Which print will reign this year remains to be seen. Some experts say it’s the tiger print. Others say it’s snake skin. We’ve seen both in multiple runways, though. We’ll sure see more of the two in daily life. See how Nadine Lustre rocks the tiger print.
While it never gets too cold in the Philippines, a trustee sweater will always be a staple. This year, ditch the hoodies for knit. It’ll be all the rage. Elisse Johnson likes to keep it simple.
Satin and Sequins
It’s not just glass skin that’s set to be big this year. Sparkly fashion pieces are taking a fair share of spotlight, too. Satin, spaghetti strap tops worn in the 2000s will be returning to the scene. Anything sequined ala Nicole Kidman at the recently-concluded Golden Globe Awards will shine, too. Kathryn Bernardo loves this trend, too.
Tailored suit and pants
Color—lots of it.
It’s a colorful year ahead. Apart from Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral, neons and pastels are in. Kim Chiu likes to wear pastel on a beach trip. Earth tones like khaki and beige will also be front and center in comfy utilitarian styles.
It’s not just about aesthetics this year. It’ll also be about how your fashion choices impact the environment. Also called sustainable fashion, it puts emphasis on producing, consuming, and using clothes and accessories in an environmentally-friendly and socio-economical manner. Bayo, for instance, is ushering the New Year with its sustainability initiative in partnership with Rags2Riches. In it, fabric scraps were upcycled to create stylish bags.
