2018 was a year of extreme contrasts in fashion. People dressed for functionality and, often, with a desire to shock. Many changes in the dress code and some new trends appeared.
Many of the 2018 trends will not disappear, but it is likely that they will evolve.
Here are some of the new trends people will be wearing in 2019. I’m sure you already know or wear some of it, but there are some surprises.
The “Boiler suits”
Like Karen Dacre says: “A boiler suit, in its 2018 fashion incarnation, is a bit like a slice of ham and pineapple pizza: captivating, a little repulsive and actually, quite delicious”
It’s not everyone who appreciates the pineapple pizza which is still a debate around the world! One thing is sure, this jumpsuit became fashionable in 2018 and will be sticking around for 2019. If you love it, wear it!

In 2018, black colour became the symbol of the #MeToo movement. Our prediction is that in 2019 we will bring more colours to our wardrobe. At the end of the last year, the accessory fashion world was touched by a new neon trend. Neon accessories are only the tip of the iceberg. In 2019, your entire wardrobe will light up.
The “Faux Fur Coat”
Beyond the simple function to stay warm, there is a deeper meaning behind this kind of coat. This trend first showed up through consumers who were more mindful with their purchases. They want to buy clothes without animal leather and fur.
Therefore, the Faux Fur makes is apparition in the 2018 fashion trend. It’s a good choice for Night out dress. Plus, you have the choice of the colour. This trend is definitely “Fur” YOU !

Practical fashion was in vogue in 2018, thanks to millennials’ desire to shop brands selling clothes that last longer and have a purpose. Because of this, outdoor brands such as Patagonia and The North Face saw a surge in interest. Fashion brands are creating their own trend version of this jacket. The fleece is a new trend for 2019. Be ready for the cold Winter.
With 24 % of the sales in the apparel industry, Athleisure has been a leading trend in fashion for almost a decade and will grow throughout 2019. When you have comfort and function combined with fashion, it’s difficult to go back to anything else on a regular basis. In 2019, this trend will define a new elegant & utility look.
2019 will see some old trends evolve during the year, no doubt on that! Make this year more fashionable, be yourself and dress with confidence.
