Top 5 Fashion Trends for Spring 2019

Tina Broccole is a fashion stylist, influencer and the radio talk show host of “Fashion Friday with Tina.”  We asked her to write about this year’s Spring Fashion Trends.  Here are her top 5 Fashion Trends for Spring 2019.

Twice a year, the fashion world is filled with an air of joyful anticipation come February and September. These are the sacred times of year when New York, London, Paris, and Milan release upcoming trends for the masses. It’s a taste of luxury and inspiration for everyone from celebrities, to bloggers, to retailers, to avid Project Runway viewers.

Take advantage of this time, when the temperatures are in the single digits; when you can stay inside and take a bit of time to refresh your wardrobe for the year. How will you meld trends from last September and this February? What will you splurge on? What’s a must have? If you don’t know where to start, I’ve put together a comprehensive list of some of most popular trends on the runway that are already lining the walls at your favorite retail stores right now. Let the shopping begin!

Ruffles & Frills

Think, “Flower Girl Grows Up and Kills The Fashion Game” when it comes to the feminine frills this season. You can sprinkle the soft frills into your accessories, or you can go all out in head-to-toe texture. To assure that your ruffled ensembles are age-appropriate, make sure that you accessorize with sleek and minimal bags, jewelry, shoes, and jackets. Because when it comes to these indulgent kinds of pieces, there is a line that you can cross into “too much of a good thing.”

Mellow Yellow

Just like the color red dominated runways all of last year, it looks like yellow is taking a lead into first place for 2019. This sunny color is sure to brighten your mood and soothe any spring fever you may be dealing with. Whether its marigold, lemon, or butter, there’s a yellow shade for everyone! Pair it with grays, black, and white for a modern take on the bright hue. Or, tone it down with nudes and earth tones, like beige, hunter green, and chocolate brown. Everyone from Givenchy to Carolina Herrera is incorporating a bit of sunshine this year; so no matter your personal style and aesthetic, make some room in your closet for yellow!

Short Stories

As the natural cycle of “out with the old and in with the new” continues, chic shorts are slowly replacing garments in trendy athleisure get-ups. Biker shorts, especially, are making their incredibly ubiquitous debut on runways like Chanel, Fendi, Ferragamo and Prada! With some of the biggest names in the game already on this trend, you can definitely expect to see the cropped numbers in some of your other favorite stores – and sooner, rather than later. If the idea of squeezing into a pair of biker shorts makes you cringe just as much as the thought of Spanx, fear not! No need to be intimidated by this trend as long as the styling is right. Think about how you’d style your leggings, and replace them with biker shorts for the summer. Pair with an oversized shirt or sweatshirt for an easy, casual day out and about. Complete this look by styling it with your favorite pair of modern sneakers and shades, and switch out your regular crossbody for a trendy belt bag for a new take on an ‘80s classic.

Birds of a Feather

While it’s not necessarily a brand new spring trend, there’s no doubt that feathers are still riding out their trending peak. This season we’re seeing the airy details in a new and more colorful light, with more volume, drama and impact than ever before. But just because designers are leaning into the trend and committing on all fronts doesn’t mean that you have to. Take this texture from runway to real life by wearing it in small doses. Feathered cuffs, hems, trims, and embellishments all work in day-to-day life thanks to their modern and stylish practicality. (And because no one wants to sit at the table next to Big Bird.)

Snake Charmer

A cousin of the leopard (in the fashion world), the python is a timeless print that comes ‘round every decade or so. This pattern is for risk-takers and classic wardrobes alike, depending on how you want to style it. For the fearless fashionista, pair it with another contrasting print and layer on a leather jacket to pull everything together. Add on even more textures like feathers, lace, and sequins to turn heads on big city streets. If you’re more of a traditional type of gal, try incorporating snake in place of your polka dots or stripes for a fun twist on a timeless outfit. A python print button down would go great with your denim skirt and a sleek loafer. Or, you could dress up the reptilian pattern by using it as a replacement for your neutral accessories. Even a snake-print crossbody perfectly complements your favorite LWD.
