International Fashion Trends to Watch For Spring 2019- It may be fall now but we’re already looking forward to the spring of 2019 with these exciting international fashion trends. No matter where you are, from Los Angeles to Austin, New York City and beyond, this is just some of what you can expect when the season of renewal arrives.
Elle magazine calls marigold, “a saturated and sunny yellow,” this spring’s “It-color,” with the happy hue seen all over the catwalk at New York Fashion Week. Throughout the week there was talk about how various shades of yellow kept coming up at presentations and on runways, with a long list of designers incorporating it into their collections for the coming season. Simkhai features multiple airy silhouettes in the color, while Rodarte’s beautiful dresses also incorporated the joyful shade, along with noteworthy brands like Kate Spade and Carolina Herrera.
Butterflies are synonymous with spring, and lots of butterfly embellishments have been spotted in outfits worn on the runways for spring and summer, including on the shoulders of dresses and on tank tops. If these colorful creatures appeal to you, look forward to getting creative and wearing them any way you like.
Lots of Sparkle and Bling
Sequins are another popular feature for spring, as the primary source of sparkle among the season’s fashion trends for 2019. From fabrics to jewels, all sorts of bling was seen, including glistening dresses in golds and silvers as well as delicate lace dresses covered in shimmering gold needlework. More than a few models walked the runway in jewel-encrusted body suits, while others wore dresses created out of a shiny tulle fabric.
Speaking of shiny fabric, there were quite a few metallic fabrics that made their way into international fashion trends for spring, bringing a bit of ‘80s nostalgia with the desire to stand out in a big way. Jackets in metallic plaid look to be especially popular for the coming year, as well as curve-hugging metallic dresses for clubbing.
When you think of crochet, you might think of your grandmother, or great-grandmother as the case may be, but this spring trend has been referred to as “not your grandma’s crochet,” with pieces that are probably a whole lot cooler than what you might have seen hanging in her closet. The high-impact fabric is statement-making yet comfy, creating a slightly bohemian look in everything from knitted oversized pullovers with net skirts to provocative loosely crocheted dresses that are ideal for layering. Showing off lots of skin, the knitted fabric seem highly appropriate for spring fashion trends.
Just a few of the designers incorporating crochet into their looks have included Chloe, Oscar de la Renta and Michael Kors.
