2019 Fashion Trend Forecast & Tips on How to Style

Tie-Dye

Tie-dye is making a come back in 2019 which a lot of our 10 year old selves are living for. The first thing that comes to mind when we think tie-dye is bright colors. This may be out of your comfort zone, especially if you tend to stick to neutral colors. Believe it or not, there is a way to do both. There are tops that are neutral-colored tie-dye! Once you're comfortable wearing these, try a bright, fun tie-dye. You might surprise yourself with how much you like it! If you're down to wear a bright-colored tie-dye shirt, but aren't sure about some of the different styles, wear a simple t-shirt! Being comfy and trendy at the same time? That's a win-win.

Faux Leather

Faux leather jackets have always been a classic, timeless style, but in 2019 we're stepping it up a notch. Not only are you going to see a lot of faux leather jackets, but all types of faux leather clothing including leggings, skirts, and earrings! So how should you go about trying out this fashion trend? If you've never worn faux leather before, start out with the basics and follow rule number 3: accessorize! You're in luck with this one, because faux leather earrings are going to be huge, and this is the perfect place to start. Maybe get a faux leather jacket or some boots. Once you're comfortable with this, try a pair of leggings, or a skirt. This is such a rad look that any girl can rock!

Animal Print

This is a 2019 fashion trend that we can't get enough of! Animal print was slowly becoming more and more popular toward the end of 2018, but in 2019 we're going all in! Some of the most popular prints are leopard, snake, and zebra. This fashion trend is so fun, but it can definitely be intimidating. We recommend starting with a pair of shoes or a bag. Again, accessorizing is key. You can also try a top that uses animal print as more of an accent. Try wearing a fun leopard print top under a tank dress, or pair some snake print leggings with a simple black top. There are so many options with this trend, you'll be sure to find one you love!

Bamboo Bags

This year we're going to see a change in bags and purses! This trend popped up for a little while in 2018 and it's expected to happen again in 2019. Get ready to own a bamboo handbag! These bags are super unique and cool, and there are a lot of different styles. If you like laid back, simple vibes try out a small round bamboo bag. If you love a good statement piece go for the full-size purse! There are so many affordable options, so find one that suits your style and try it out!

Statement Sleeves

Sleeves that catch the eye are up and coming. This includes large puffy sleeves, bell sleeves, or even just colorful, patterned sleeves. This trend is exciting and fun because there are so many options, there's one bound to fit your aesthetic. Look around and find a few to try out. Find whichever style you feel comfortable in, and make a statement with you sleeves!


4 Basic Rules

Now that you know what popular fashion trends to expect, here are 4 basic rules that you can follow while trying them out to ensure that you're doing it in a way that is smart and affordable. Don't forget the most important rule is that you be yourself and stay true to your personal style. We want you to feel your best while you look your best!

1. Don't Overspend

You don't know how much you're going to like a popular trend until you wear it and try it out for yourself. Because of this, it's important to not buy that one really expensive item right off the bat. Are you into the big belt trend, but not sure how much you like wearing belts? Buy an affordable option to try it out. If you find you love wearing belts, go all in and buy that one you've been eyeing! If you realize belts aren't your vibe, you'll be happy you didn't drop a lot of money on an item you don't enjoy wearing.

2. Think Ahead for Styling

Buying an item of clothing that is a little out of your comfort zone can make styling hard. Before you buy something a little different, look in your current wardrobe and see what you already own that you could pair it with. Once you've done this, styling that pair of jeans or that jacket will be a lot easier. Pairing it with items you're already used to wearing will also help you to feel more comfortable and confident so you can rock that edgy piece in a way that's you!

3. Accessorize

An easy way to try out something new is to incorporate a trend into your accessories. If there's a popular print or pattern that you've been wanting to try out, add an accessory into your outfit! If you've been wanting to try out animal print, but you're not ready to jump into a pair of snake print leggings, try wearing snake print shoes or adding a snake print bag to your look. You can never go wrong with jewelry either! This way you can take baby steps into the trend. If you end up loving it, try an article of clothing for a more bold look!

4. Be Yourself

Make sure you stay true to yourself and only wear things that make you feel like your best self. There's no reason to wear something that makes you uncomfortable just to fit in with a popular fashion trend. Not a fan of leather clothing or crazy patterns? Skip that trend! You'll always look amazing when you're feeling confident!
