Have you ever looked at the items in your closet and became bored?  Do you need a fashion tune-up?  Thankfully, spring is here and we can add some new clothing articles to our wardrobes to spruce up our closets and our moods

Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to examine the trends that are most popular for this season.  After a good amount of research, I have narrowed the trends down to nine of the most seen on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris.

 1.  Hues of Yellow

Yellow has been a fixture in spring collections for a couple of seasons, but it was really brought to the forefront during Spring 2019.  I really like yellow hues because they are bright for spring and they are flattering for most any occasion.

2.  Tie-Dye

Tie-Dye

Tie-Dye has made a big splash this season and it’s not just for festivals anymore.  This trend has made its way into mainstream fashion for the season.  How do you feel about this trend?  My inclination is to shy away from it because it really isn’t my style.  However, some may disagree and wear it all season!  To each his own!

3.  Scarf Prints & Flowing Hemlines

Scarf prints along with flowing hemlines were quite popular for the Spring 2019 season. Flowing dresses with distinct patterns make this a beautiful trend.  The designers that I’ve listed below all have exquisite scarf prints as part of their collections.  I really like the design of the dresses as well as the scarf print because they are light and airy which is perfect for spring and summer.

Move over Little Black Dress (LBD), the Little White Dress (LWD) is here to take your place, at least for a little while.  The LWD is fresh and very spring-like.  It’s perfect for all those special occasions like the Kentucky Derby and Mother’s Day that occur during the spring months.

6.  Long Shorts

The New Length of Shorts

The length of shorts is considerable lower this spring season.  Designers have lowered the length of their shorts to just above the knee.  I tend to favor this trend because I think it creates a more classic outfit.

7.  Polka Dots

A throwback to the 1980s, puffy sleeves are garnering more and more attention from fashion houses in New York and in Europe.  From the very demure as seen above to Marc Jacobs’ over-the-top enormous puffy sleeves, there is something for everyone who wants to wear this trend.

9. All-Over Beige

All-Over Beige

The Spring 2019 runways say the following:  Beige is the new black.  Go head-to-toe in shades of camel, cream, ecru, and oatmeal to take on the trend.  I love beige!  It’s a blank canvas with which you can do so much.
