Though still in winter’s grip, January catwalks were blooming as the biggest names in fashion unveiled their top trends for Spring 2019. Here are some of our fave top picks for the season.
From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you get the look.
From the runways of Dior to the catwalks of Louis Vuitton and Ferragamo, haute couture’s take on nautical chic breathes new life into a classic trend; whipping it into ship-shape. Hop aboard and offset your outfit with this ‘she-sells-seashells’ Esparto cross-body bag from Zara. We love that it’s made of all-natural materials and is the perfect accessory for spring. Own it for RO27.9.
Cinch the look: Anchor your look in this mint-green shift dress from H&M (RO13.4) and a pair of Monica Vinader 18-carat rose-gold and amazonite studs from Selfridges&Co.(RO49.5).
The more boldly-patterned the better, we say. Slip into spring’s hottest look in this button-down shirtdress from Promod. It takes the ultimate accessory-style and turns it front-and-centre. With a prettily-jumbled print like this, keep your add-ons to a minimum and opt for muted jewellery. Snag it for RO26.2.
Cinch the look: Accentuate the ensemble with neutral add-ons like these bone-white Famille pointy-toe mules from Nine West (RO30.3) and a shabby-chic Salome denim jacket from Miss Sixty (RO176.4) with delicate ivory bead detail.
It takes a fearless fashionista to don the dots. If you’re waffling on whether or not to go all out and embrace this pattern-play, we recommend starting small. This set of Hoxton ultra-skinny black denim trousers from Nordstrom have ever-so-subtle white polka dots and are neutral enough to pair with any colours or accessories you throw at them. Buy them for RO82.3.
Cinch the look: Create a silhouette that draws the eye downwards by pairing them with a chunky cable-knit cardigan in an ultraviolet shade of fuchsia from River Island (RO21.3) and a statement ring from Aldo Accessories (RO3.8) for a lemony sucker-punch.
Go for gold in spring’s hottest shade of heavy metal. For 2019 it’s all about taking that 24-carat glow and upcycling it – and we love how this skater dress from Dorothy Perkins combines the hue with an animal print for and added wild edge. Make it yours for RO16.2.
Cinch the look: With a pair of leather ankle boots from MANGO (RO576.6) in a jewel-tone teal and a pair of neutral circle drop earrings from M&S (RO3.8) in an iridescent pearl.
