New Year, New Closet: 5 Bold Trends to Try in 2019

New Year, New Closet: 5 Bold Trends to Try in 2019

January 07, 2019

For many of us, January is a month for cleaning, organizing, and making some changes. That’s especially true when it comes to your closet. The start of a new year is the perfect time to purge old items you no longer wear and add some fresh styles to enliven your wardrobe. Today, we’re searching for bold fashion inspiration with a closer look at five key style trends for 2019.

New Neutrals: As we dip our toes into a new year of trends, we’ll start with the most subtle: a fresh take on a classic neutral color. Shades of beige made a surprisingly strong statement on the runway at Burberry, Balmain, and Max Mara, where designers showed off trench coats, jumpsuits, and even eveningwear in safari-inspired khaki. Stock up on beige as a springtime neutral that’s softer than basic black, and don’t be afraid to wear this understated color from head to toe for a sleek, sophisticated look. 

Lace Love: When it comes to fabric trends, lace is poised to reign supreme in 2019. Many designers found ways to modernize this quintessentially feminine fabric with unexpected masculine touches and sporty details. This year, pair your favorite lace pieces with quirky accents—like sporty slides or menswear-inspired trousers—for an updated take on a classic textile.

Folk Style: Another fabric trend emerged straight out of your elementary school arts and crafts class—folk-inspired elements are an essential look for 2019. Designers including Chloe and Missoni showed off crocheted dresses, macramé accents, and lots of fringe for spring and summer. To bring this bold trend into your own closet, start off with some smaller accent pieces, like a tasseled cardigan or retro-cool crochet bag.

Print Mixing: Prints made a major statement on the runway for 2019, and that statement was, “These aren’t your grandma’s florals.” Countless designers dabbled in print mixing, layering dramatic colors and busy patterns with abandon. This trend is not for the faint of heart—when it comes to print mixing, the bolder the better! To get started, try pairing up two splashy floral prints that share a similar color palette. From there, go wild!

Tie-Dye: Our final trend callout for 2019 is a throwback print with a serious nostalgic appeal: tie-dye. Stella McCartney and Prabal Gurung showed tie-dye looks for the new year, opting for chic two-piece sets and flowy gowns in primary hues. To help this look steer clear of Grateful Dead concert territory, avoid tie-dye t-shirts and showcase the print with more fashion-forward silhouettes, like a structured jacket or breezy kimono.
