Cue the nostalgia because tie dye is back. Swirling coloured stains have already been spotted on numerous Spring/Summer 2019 runways like R13 Denim and Collina Strada. The infamous rainbow print is set to make a big revival this year on more than just loose, baggy t-shirts. 

Utilitarian Fashion

The modern utilitarian look serves purpose and comfort whilst simultaneously offering a strong shouldered, yet feminine silhouette. Look out for belted boiler suits, layered trench coats and safari jackets in shades of beige, khaki and taupe. Choosing between pockets or handbags was a choice we never thought we’d have to make.

Bows

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past two weeks, we’ll be the ones to tell you that bows are back. They thrived in Erdem’s S/S 2019 collection, where they served as the ultimate feminine embellishment decorating almost every part of the body. Shoulders, necks, waists and hair, you’ll find them.

Ruffles

Frill seekers, this is your calling. Dramatic, oversized ruffles are set to flourish this year and in a big way. Marc Jacobs has set the tone with cascading, balloon silhouettes and adjacent frills.
