5 Trends That Promise to Pervade Your Summer, According to Fashion Experts
Spring is in full swing, and summer is quickly approaching. (Seriously, where has the time gone?) If you’re someone who likes to stay on top of what’s popular, you’ll want to start preparing your wardrobe for all the summer 2019 fashion trends coming for the hot months. Some of the trends have carried over from spring, which is good news for your wardrobe. All you’ll really need is a little refresher, and then you’ll be good to go all summer long.
For those of you who are really chomping at the bit (Do people still use that phrase?) to get started on your summer ensembles, have no fear. StyleCaster talked to fashion experts from Free People, Zara and Macy’s who all gave us a taste of what to expect in terms of trends for summer 2019. There are already tons of ways to shop each trend, so you can go ahead and get your wardrobe summer-ready. The selections are bound to get even bigger in the coming months, though, so if you want to relish in spring a little bit longer, you’re totally fine. However you like to shop, there’s no denying you’ll be seeing these five trends everywhere in the next few months.
1. Low-Key Utility
A Free People representative tells StyleCaster, “A trend for SS19 we’ll be seeing everywhere is utility, especially in bottoms! For outfitting, we love the contrast of pairing utility silhouettes back to femme tops, either cropped or tucked in to highlight the waist detailing.”
Tie-dye was a big spring 2019 trend, and it’s sticking around for summer. According to fashion expert Sarah Baum at Macy’s, tie-dye is going to get even bigger this summer—which I didn’t think was possible. Break out your old DIY tie-dye tees from years ago (unless I’m the only one who did that) or try a chic black and white tie-dye. You can also wear the trend over your swimwear with a tie-dye kimono or dress. The possibilities are endless, and you’re sure to find a tie-dye version of every article of clothing this summer.
3. Sheer & Gauzy Fabrics
Sheer and gauzy pieces are perfect for layering in the summer heat, as recommended by a Free People Representative. Whether you go super-sheer or stick with just a little bit of see-through is up to you, but you can’t go wrong with this warm-weather trend. Try it out at the beach over your swimsuit or over a cute bralette while shopping. You’ll stay both cool and on-trend.
Neon is another trend that was big in spring 2019, and it’s here to stay—both Lisa Lam from Zara and Sarah Baum from Macy’s agree. Outshine everyone with all the different ways to rock this trend in the coming months. Try the trend with top or dress—completely neon or with neon accents. Or, if you’re not super committal to the full neon look, you can don some cute neon accessories and stay right on trend.
