Spring/summer fashion trends for 2019 have already been decided thanks to the catwalks at New York, Paris, Milan and London Fashion Week. So if you want to avoid this year’s rush over that leopard print Realisation Par skirt, and be ahead of the game next season, this is what you need to know.

From the colours you’ll need in your wardrobe to next year’s ‘it’ print, here are all the spring/summer fashion trends we’ll be wearing in 2019.

Neon

Neon has already made its way to our high street shelves thanks to a number of celebs – read, mainly Kim Kardashian – working some fluorescent hues of late. And it looks set to continue into 2019.

Neon brights were on the catwalks at Christian Siriano, Henry Holland and Naeem Khan for spring/summer. Think tailoring, two pieces, capes, separates – as long as it looks like a shade of highlighter, you’re good to go.

Tie dye

If you don’t like colour, 2019 may be a testing time for you, because along with neons and yellows, there’ll be a load of tie dye about, too. As seen on the catwalks at R13 and Prabal Gurung, this is sophisticated tie dye; think blazers, knits and midi skirts aplenty.

Crochet

Following on from the tie-dye vibes comes the ultimate in ’70s, California Dreamin’ craft-work. Crochet was spotted at Oscar de la Renta, Victoria Beckham and JW Anderson – all in monochrome.

Colour-blocking

With so much colour smacking us in the face next Spring, it’s no surprise that we’ll need to learn how to colour-block. And yes, we’ll even be doing it with neons, according to Prabal Gurung.

As you may have already gathered from the previous slides, really anything goes when it comes to colour, so go wild.

Animal print

The good news is that if you’re eyeing up a leopard print item right now, you’ll still be able to wear it come the spring as animal prints continued to rock the catwalks at fashion week.

From flashes and clashes at R13 to tailoring at Nicole Miller and evening wear at Tom Ford, things have moved on from sell-out midi skirts and coats.

Cycling shorts

Yep, the trend that no one ever asked for is back, and bolder than ever. Simple, shiny shorts were found at Chanel, but Stella McCartney’s reinvention for 2019 involved florals – and lots of them. Prints were also found at Prada, while Fendi tried playing with proportions.

Bucket hats

The good news is that in 2019 we’ll all care so much about protecting our faces from the sun, we’ll be wearing a lot of hats! The bad news? Well, they’ll be bucket hats. From the bizarre at Louis Vuitton, to the velvety delights at Anna Sui, this might be a divisive one.

Fringing

Whether it’s leather, a la Longchamp, silk a la Tom Ford, or sequins a la Gucci, if something isn’t swooshing when you walk next season, then you’re not doing it right.
