Here we are again. Four weeks, nearly 450 shows and 18(!) memorable Kaia Gerber runway sightings later, the Spring 2019 season has come to a close. Needless to say, it was a lot to take in, but once again we’ve managed to distill a month of incredible fashion down to its 15 most important trends.
When the weather's down in the dumps, trick your brain by wearing happy, pastel clothing. Top things off with an umbrella that shouts "spring" and a PVC overlay that's precipitation — but not admiring-eye — proof.
Take it from front row denizen Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert: a snowy white backdrop is the perfect excuse to rock in-your-face, Barbie-approved colors. (The more you resemble the star of an early aughts Doublemint gum commercial, the better.) Also, match your neck bandana to your unabashedly bright sweater.
When there’s snow and sleet on the ground, stilettos and even in-betweenie kitten heels are persona non grata, as far as we’re concerned. (Go ahead, test your luck with a block heel…but don’t say we didn’t warn you.) Rather than wind up with your butt planted on a dirty slab of concrete or clutching a twisted ankle — not exactly stylish — we recommend you ditch your oh-so-sexy heels for a pair of currently #trending embellished flats.
So what if these silver-rimmed specs don’t actually serve the purpose of improving your vision? They transform your look instantly, they ask to be asked about.
