2018 inundated us with some fashion trends that we are happy to leave in the past, including the ugly ‘dad’ sneakers and micro-sunglasses. Luckily, a new year brings in an opportunity to update your wardrobe with emerging trends first seen on the runway.

We are predicting 2019 will have a deeper focus on various textures and patterns, giving more room for individual creativity and the ability to adapt trends to personal style. Here are our top fashion trend predictions for 2019:

Bamboo Bags

According to a Pinterest study, the search words “Bamboo Bag”, was up 2,215% proving that the trend is not slowing down any time soon. Although a statement piece, the accessory is not necessarily practical due to its design and fragile materials. If the delicate nature of the bag is too much for your day-to-day, try and incorporate the trend in other aspects of your wardrobe; chunky geometric jewelry, woven belts from natural materials and wooden block heels, all carry the essence of the bamboo bag.

This accessory was most likely plastered all over your Instagram feed in late 2018. With every fashion blogger clutching a sphere bamboo bag outside of fashion week venues, it’s only fitting that we are going to see more people investing in the revamped accessory throughout 2019.

Bike Shorts

Gone are the days when bike shorts were found in sporting stores and were meant for actual exercising. Instead, they are paired with chic tailored blazers or oversized shirts and have become a staple for every streetwear-inspired wardrobe. Making an appearance on the recent Spring/Summer 2019 runway circuit, iconic fashion houses like Nassir Zadeh and Fendi adopted the fashion trend in their collection.

Made popular by fashion It Girls including the Hadid’s, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber, the trend is following us through to 2019. Keep in mind the length of the bike short when purchasing your own. The short should always sit a couple of inches above the knee, too long and it could make you look unproportionate and too short may look closer to a lycra bikini bottom.

Feathers

From elaborate feather embellishment to feather earrings, faux-feathers are the new faux-fur. Dries Van Noten offered up a more low-key use of the texture while Marc Jacobs offered over-the-top feather dresses.

Rouching

Rouching describes the technique of gathering fabric and texture to form detail in a garment. The technique made an impact in the industry during the early ’80s but has made a surprise return for 2019. With the ever-growing athleisure movement, designers have embraced parachute-style rouging which enables the wearer to tug on the pulls and alter the look to serve your creative taste and body shape.

Rouching detail was seen at some of the largest fashion houses Spring/Summer 2019 shows including Altuzarra, Pyper Moss and Burberry. Rouching adds texture and a unique silhouette to any ensemble and can be used to create a statement without incorporating patterns or vibrant color.

Snake Print

This is an alternative to the classic leopard print that has been dominating high-street for years. The snake print made an impression at the recent Autumn/Winter 2018 runway circuit with many brands including Marni, Zimmerman and Rochas have incorporated snake in a variety of ways.

From snakeskin boots, cami dresses and statement bags, the faux print can be used in any form. Try elevate this bold print by buying in neon colors and be sure to make a lasting impression.

Tie-Dye

Are you ready for a summer spent in tie-dye sweaters, tees, and skirts. Sometimes worn all at once? Sometimes worn with acid wash jeans? Michael Kors made a strong argument for tie-dye last year, now the popular print has reappeared and makes a striking statement that translates from Manhattan to Malibu.

Tuxedos

Creative director Heidi Slimane debuted his first collection with Celine at the recent Spring/Summer 2019 runway show. Few designers have been able to accomplish such intricate and figure enhancing tailoring for woman as the Celine designer. The collection has sparked an increase in female suiting which includes the traditional tuxedo. Opting for a tuxedo for an evening look is both a comfortable yet classic option when done correctly:

  • Leave the first few buttons on your shirt undone to avoid looking square at the chest
  • Try to keep the tuxedo jacket buttoned to cinch in the waist
  • Wear a pant that sits above the hip to enhance your leg length
  • A shorter jacket is best on a small frame to avoid looking smothered

7 New Sneaker Collabs Dropping This Spring and Summer

Published

New Sneaker Collabs

Originally created for athletes in the throes of the industrial revolution, sneakers have become a pillar of fashion, function, and effortless self-expression donned by people from all walks of life.

According to Nicholas Smith, author of “Kicks: The Great American Story of Sneakers,” there’s something magical about shoes. From Air Jordan ads to fairytales, shoes have carried on a mystique, he told “Smithsonian Magazine.” “What makes Cinderella a princess? The magic glass slipper. What makes Dorothy come back from the land of Oz? The ruby slippers.”

The figurative magic can become almost literal with the right pair of sneakers. Thanks to America’s fascination and fandom with the kicks, there are lots of new sneaker collabs hitting the market this year. Here are a few of the season’s most iconic footwear.

Adidas x Marvel

This spring, Adidas also teamed up with Marvel to release an Avenger inspired shoe line as part of the brand’s “Heroes Among Us” sneaker collection. The line includes six limited edition designs, and two styles created through a collaboration with artist Jen Bartel. The Adidas x Jen Bartel designs are inspired by Captain Marvel and Thanos and the launch of “Avengers: Endgame.”

The Captain Marvel sneakers are fashioned with Adidas’ signature stripes and the star-shaped insignia, in gold. The Thanos’ design is modeled after the character’s purple hue, and features an infinity stone design on the heels. Both are outfitted with the Marvel logo, and available exclusively at Footlocker.

Adidas Yeezy 350 Glow V2


The hotly anticipated glow-in-the-dark sneakers are the latest design to come out of the Adidas Yeezy line. Since the original release of the 350 v2 models last year — which feature a similar transparent mesh stripe from toe-to-heal — the Boosts’ have been the hype of footwear, according to Sneaker News. The Adidas Yeezy collection previously released the 350 Boost in three colors: clay, hyperspace, and TRFRM. The newest neon green style comes with the popular transparent stripe and is glow-in-the-dark so they’re even more attention-grabbing when the lights are off.

The sneakers are set for release on May 25, 2019, and come in kids, infant, and adult sizes.

Nike x Steve Harrington’s Earth Day Collection

This colorful collaboration between Nike and Steve Harrington, a Los-Angeles based artist known for his Californian “psychedelic-pop aesthetic,” was born from a shared commitment to sustainability. Released on April 22, the Earth Day Collection includes some of Nike’s most iconic styles, such as the “Air Force 1,” “Cortez,” and “Blazer Low.”

All styles in the line feature a globe, and Harrington’s signature palm trees and cartoon dog. Each of the three designs are set on a clean and classy, all-white sneaker with variations of white or blue outsoles.

The sneakers are constructed with Nike’s Flyleather innovation, which according to the company is “made with at least 50 percent leather fiber [and] looks and feels like regular leather.”

Reebok x Alien Stomper 40th-Anniversary OG

The unisex sneakers are a homage to the 1979 sci-fi film, “Alien,” and are modeled from the creators’ original prototypes. The upgraded, 40th-anniversary design features the classic Reebok logo and is made with premium aged leather — perfect for the retro look. The high-ankle design also comes with midfoot and ankle straps (of course!) and a rubber outsole to complete the vintage silhouette.

The special issue stompers come in a “Space Fleets” box with a certificate of authenticity. The sneakers were released on April 26th, and are available on Reebok.com.

Star Wars x Adidas Crazy 1

Adidas is joining forces with Star Wars for yet another high-profile partnership this year. The Star Wars x Adidas basketball collection is set to include two pairs of sneakers, a hoodie and a long sleeve top. It is expected to drop this summer, just a few months before the release of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” this December.

Little is known about the design, but the Star Wars sneaks are also said to be modeled after Adidas’ “Dame 5” and “Crazy 1,” originally known as “The Kobe.” One preview, provided by @DirtyMoney823, shows the Crazy 1, or “Galactic Empire,” with a sleek black and red design, glossy print, textured laces, and an Empire logo on the lip.

Supreme x Air Jordan 14


According to multiple sources such as Sole Collector and Sneaker News, the highly celebrated union between the two brands is rumored to be back with a new collaboration. Little details, including the release date, are known. However, the sneaker is said to come in two different colorways, and is styled after the Air Jordan 14, the legendary shoes worn by Michael Jordan while he played for the Chicago Bulls — and inspired Nike’s “It’s Gotta Be the Shoes” ad campaign.

Vans x Bowie

The Best Looks from the ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ Pink Carpet

Published

on

Camp: Notes on Fashion

Affectionally dubbed “the Oscars of fashion,” the Met Gala is an annual benefit event for the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The extravagant event is known for its exclusive guest list, its expensive tickets, and its extravagant outfits.

Inspired by Susan Sontag‘s 1964 essay, which defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration,” this year’s exhibition, titled “Camp: Notes on Fashion” features both men’s and womenswear, the exhibition will feature over 200 pieces of fashion from designers including Virgil Abloh, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Rei Kawakubo, Mugler, Bob Mackie, Karl Lagerfeld, and more. The Viktor & Rolf slogan couture gowns that sparked an endless stream of memes will also be on display.

This year, the event was fittingly sponsored by Gucci and hosted by Lady Gaga, Harry Styles, Serena Williams, and Anna Wintour.

Embracing the glittery, the tacky, the over-the-top, the gender-bending and the taboo, camp is an aesthetic that flies in the face of Western hetero notions of respectability and good taste, and looks good doing it. The celebrities on the red carpet didn’t disappoint — think over-the-top silhouettes and eccentric styling.

From Lady Gaga’s four outfit changes on the fabulously fitting pink carpet to Jared Leto carrying his own head, we’ve put together a few of our favorite interpretations of camp to celebrate the Costume Institute’s new exhibition.
