THE TREND GUIDE:
YOUR NEW-SEASON PREVIEW

Five key trends to know about this season, from new denim shapes to Nineties’ nostalgia. Your spring wardrobe refresh starts here

Statement denim

Denim devotees will be thrilled to hear their favourite fabric takes centre stage for spring. New washes, details and silhouettes breathe new life into the wardrobe mainstay, from puff-sleeve blouses to Seventies-inspired A-line dresses and, of course, the new essential shape: the wide-leg crop. Keep things simple by styling with cotton T-shirts, cashmere crew-neck jumpers and crisp linen shirts.

Rusty tones

Join the terracotta army this season and make a beeline for burnt orange, tobacco and clay shades. Simultaneously earthy and energetic, these rich hues are the new neutrals. They complement many colours in your wardrobe (even electric blue) and add balance to punchy animal prints. For everyday wear, try this crisp belted linen dress (coming soon) with snakeskin slide sandals, or a contemporary knit and matching skirt in cognac.

Nineties nostalgia

Side-stripe tracksuits, animal print, barely-there mules: just a handful of the trends that owe it all to the Nineties, and we’re wholly on board. But how to make the look feel fresh for 2019? With a pared-back, refined approach. Think less is more and make one vintage-inspired piece the focal point for your look, like this sports-luxe ensemble. Maybe leave the Heather Shimmer lipstick and butterfly clips at home.

Beachy keen

From Chanel’s constructed beach in the centre of Paris to Jacquemus’ Italian Riviera-themed collection, resort wear was a big focus on the catwalk this season. Crochet, tie-dye and even flip flops aren’t just for the seaside – they should be worked into your everyday attire once the temperatures rise. As for the actual swimwear, texture reigns supreme, with ribbed and crinkled fabrics hot news, along with coconut shell and resin detailing.

Utility chic

As seen at Givenchy, Fendi and Stella McCartney, there is no escaping military-inspired pieces this spring. Both practical and aesthetically pleasing (what doesn’t go with khaki?), invest in a couple of hardwearing items to live in this season. Take the boiler suit, for example: with its roomy fit and potential for fuss-free layering, we reckon it will be your most-worn item this season. Dress down with trainers for day, and up with boots for evening.
