Spring 2019 Trends

By Camilo Pernett

 

The upcoming spring trends include fashions that GCC students cannot wait to see. The upcoming 38th annual fashion show, Limitless, will showcase some of these trends and colors. I’m writing this blog to introduce you to these trends, so you can look forward to seeing them onstage.

The first trend for the upcoming spring season is “En Beige”, as coined in VOGUE magazine. It is recognized by its darker beige shades and head-to-toe trench coats. You can expect to see it on the runway, as at least one scene coordinator has confirmed “En Beige” as a part of the collection.

Another trend you will notice is VOGUE’s “California Dreamer”. When you think about spring you may think about a warm breeze of tropical adventure and colorful vibes, which is exactly the feeling of “California Dreamer”. The Italian brand Etro caught shark fever in Milan, with surfing-inspired collections.

A trend making big impact in the upcoming SS19 is the “Get into Print” (VOGUE) which focuses on prints is popular this season. According to the magazine Vogue, “Fashion’s preoccupation with florals is inexhaustible but for 2019 it’s nearing saturation point: now, prints should be worn all-over, clashed merrily and madly with little concern for what goes with what.” (https://www.vogue.co.uk/gallery/spring-summer-2019-trends)

Follow this trend if you want to make your wardrobe more colorful and fun.  Suits, jackets and blazers in colorful and bright oranges, yellows, reds, greens, and blues make your outfit less formal and more fun. This trend allows you to express yourself confidently.

 

These are the tends I hope you take note of and be aware of to be ready for the spring 2019 season. Whether you wear the new trends or appreciate them on the runway models, I hope this blog inspires you. We hope to see you wearing one of these trends at the fashion show, Limitless on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

Spring Trends 2017

Spring has just begun, so that means we must prepare for new fashion trends and styles.  No matter how many clothes you have in your closet, you’ve probably felt like you just can’t figure out what matches, or what really compliments each other. This is when monochromatic colors come into play.  Leave your dark colors in the fall, and switch to brighter & more fun monochromatic colors for spring. Next time when you don’t have time to put an outfit together, try putting some of the same color pieces together. It’ll save you the time and hassle, while still allowing you to look trendy.

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen mini skirts, now they’re back in season. Though, the weather isn’t too hot right now, that shouldn’t stop you from wearing a fashionable mini skirt. You can wear a mini skirt tomorrow and pair it with a simple pair of leggings. Denim skirts are also still trending. Any season is a great season to wear denim, but it just depends on how you dress it up ranging from overalls, jackets, jeans, and more.

Switch out your bomber jacket for a varsity jacket for when the spring weather tends to get confusing.  A blazer doesn’t have to always be used for formal occasions. Take an oversized blazer, button it all the way down, and you now have a trendy D.I.Y dress for the spring. Gingham is another print that’s coming back into style.  No, you won’t look like a walking tablecloth, this will be our new warm weather print. I believe yellow is the top color for this spring, all shades of yellow.  This color will get you noticed.  It brings on sunny rays with good vibes.

There’s no way you can fail with a matching set, for example, track suits have been worn by a couple celebrities throughout the week. You can also never go wrong with a graphic tee with bold statements, a shirtdress, a fanny pack, oversized clothes, fishnets, bright tights and much more. Basically, you can wear whatever defines Spring to you. Enjoy!
