Raise your hand if you have one of those embarrassing middle school pictures wearing clothes so out of style that it makes you want to call a lawyer to have them back from your mother. However, if fashion is about style and elegance, no doubt at it there is also space for innovation and extravagance to keep it alive.
Spring/Summer 2019 collections feature new trends borrowing elements from the 80’s and ‘90s, reinventing them for the new generations. Cargo pants, neon shades, biker shorts and long fringes are back, refreshed by young designers and ready to give your wardrobe an upgrade. Fashion titans like Dior, Prada and Stella Mc Cartney have a crush on tie-dye prints borrowed from the ‘60s while, thanks to Louis Vuitton and Versace, we can finally match prints that have nothing in common and that will look stylish too. As fashion is unpredictable, nobody knows if these trends will survive until next year but no doubt at it that trying them would be fun.
Many celebrities have been spotted already in outrageously voluminous feather dresses, like Lady Gaga at the A Star Is Born première, or matching super bright colors and ruffles like Rihanna’s gown at New York Fashion Week.
If you are feeling insecure about rocking these outfits just remember the words of the fashion’s guru par excellence, Anna Wintour:
“if my Style iS too direct for Some, maybe they Should toughen up a bit”
