FASHION TRENDS Fall 2018 – Winter 2019 & how to wear them ǀ Justine Leconte

For fall 2018 / winter 2019, the fashion trends are not completely new: I’d say that designers are re-inventing moods that we had seen before (hint: 1980’s!). In this video, I show my trend boards and what’s new this fall season. You can also find the boards on my website:

    Happy New Year! Thanks for your great videos..
    Not much help for petite elder senior, fun to watch though!

  2. justice salana on January 17, 2019 at 4:52 pm

    Omg where can i get a similar knitwear dress on the left by etro???!

  3. Miss Cherie Mystery on January 17, 2019 at 4:53 pm

    Enjoy your reviews and wish I could enjoy trends but…Not doing it. Not for me. I hated that boxy look in actual 80’s! Bright neon. Baggy. Saggy. On my shape is not good. No, as usual sticking to my classic pinup girl styles. Most shoulder I shall sport will be Lauren Bacall, Rita Haywood but they still nipped waist in 1940’s. Once again my hourglass already out?! Lol ah well and my cool tone skin and brown? Hmmm cowboy boots is nice. 🙂 thank you for video.

  4. Silvia Khanmohamed on January 17, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    Just purchased two plaid boxy looking thin coats in TJ Max. I’m a 5’3 petite will need to wear with all black or neutral and heeled boots but it looks great! Love the colors one is burnt yellow with brown/black no buttons no neck just like a throw but stiff for jacket. The other one is white/black plaids with thin mauve lines throughout the neck is beautiful! I’m happy for winter. That is in crazy S. California winters if there’s any? Lol!

  5. Danielle de Freitas on January 17, 2019 at 4:55 pm

    massive statement jewelry is my favorite. I own a lot of them so I am excited

  6. Jordan Crane on January 17, 2019 at 4:56 pm

    Thank you! I love browns.. it is one of my favorite colors to wear.. so I will look forward to that fashion trend this year.. I have a few pieces in mind ..thanks again..

  7. Lorameep on January 17, 2019 at 4:56 pm

    Loved the video!

  8. Talita Botana on January 17, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    I think Lisa Eldridge has a lot to do with the gemstones trend, she has them since long ago and since some months she is selling rings and earrings 🙂

  9. Barbara LeMere on January 17, 2019 at 5:00 pm

    To me it just looks Eighties, Taking that shoulder and making it softer would be more wearable.

  10. Justine Leconte officiel on January 17, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    ☀️Happy Sunday everyone! Let me know which trend or outfit you liked the most 😘

  11. t e r I N E E D L E R on January 17, 2019 at 5:05 pm

    I hate brown clothes and accessories! I hate most browns that is. It’s extremely rare that brow excites me to the extent I want to wear it. Brown is on a spectrum which means some shard ad textures of this colour are capable of redeeming themselves. I’d have to see some of them to really illustrate what I mean.

  12. alya badawi on January 17, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    How can I wear massive jewelry if I am petite?

  13. Marjolaine Daudrumez on January 17, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    Hi Justine! When I see the ´80s trend in the runways, I don’t feel like they have been reinvented much…I remember those trends very well and I do not see much of a difference lol 😂🙄Oh and I cannot over layer unfortunetly I’m always so hot hahahaha

  14. sherri coley on January 17, 2019 at 5:11 pm

    Those shoulders will always feel 80’s to me because they were such a big part of 80’s fashion.

  15. Zara Zee on January 17, 2019 at 5:11 pm

    Hi Justine loved the fall/winter fashion you brought here esp the brown. Brown may seem like a boring color but I think it takes us so much closer to the nature has a very grounding effect. What is the spring summer color 2019? It is spring here in Australia. I need some inspiration please. Much love to you ❤❤

  16. Adria Banks on January 17, 2019 at 5:12 pm

    The big shoulder trend was a thing in the 1930s, as well; it was seen as a way to make the waist appear smaller. I’m not sure this trend has been "reinvented" so much as it has been "refined" this time around. In the 80s, the big shoulder trend was paired with boxy, menswear-inspired styles as the 80s saw an influx of women in the professional world who wanted to be more competitive in their male-dominated fields and dressed accordingly. This time, I saw a lot more shaping, more waist definition, etc. The intent was not to look masculine, but to imply power and femininity together. I can get on board with that. ^_^ I won’t wear the trend–I have large breasts, so anything adding mass to my already-heavy upper body is a no-go– but I look forward to seeing how this new iteration of the trend develops.

    Regarding the layerd looks: my first thought was that, with Commes de Garcons becoming part of the public consciousness again earlier this year, many of the layered looks were inspired by the avant-garde designers in Japanese fashion. Given the current political climates in the world, the self-protection aspect of such lavish, excessive layering is understandable. However, I can only see the layering as a natural progression of the fun, avant-garde layered looks you had noted in your spring trends review.

    Terrific quick fashion dictionary for 2018-2019. Merci Beaucoup!!

  18. Thorlaug Borg Agustsdottir on January 17, 2019 at 5:14 pm

    RL 50 was all ’70’s, to me it looked like a 70’s revival more than 80’s that were the rage last season

  19. elsa Grace on January 17, 2019 at 5:16 pm

    I’m no longer exited by trends. Trends are just something to chase after to fill up your empty life with the promise of happiness when acquired. An empty promise.

  20. reicirith on January 17, 2019 at 5:21 pm

    Those boots are just not going to work for me. I have the shortest ankles and the biggest calves. I’m going to look 3 inches shorter even if I wear a heeled boot.

  21. Milubee on January 17, 2019 at 5:21 pm

    i love the over-layering trend. but it’s pretty expensive in practise /sobs
    keeps you warm, cozy, basically invisible and protects your bones in case of slipping on ice.

  22. HappyFafi on January 17, 2019 at 5:22 pm

    Thank u , that was an excellent video with lots of illustration & demonstrations 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  23. Lenka Matejik on January 17, 2019 at 5:23 pm

    Thank you!!!!!🙏😘

  24. tubeyou89119 on January 17, 2019 at 5:25 pm

    The midcalf boots are very picky. If not styled right, they make us very short and awkward. Any advice to style them?

  25. cece piwo on January 17, 2019 at 5:25 pm

    Could you do a video just on how to wear brown? I love that colour but always struggle to integrate it into my closet. I’ve been known to put brown and black together (yikes!). Help!

  26. Carol Regala on January 17, 2019 at 5:25 pm

    Super love your videos.

  27. Ioana Chis on January 17, 2019 at 5:26 pm

    Shoulders just look 80’s

  28. Teresa Jacobson on January 17, 2019 at 5:28 pm

    Merci beaucoup Justine! Superb video,.

  29. Margi Sturgess on January 17, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    love your presentations

  30. Amila Ansari on January 17, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    hi justine, here in the au our seasons are swapped, what are your thoughts on the effect of fashion seasons in regards to us? for example, should we look to this season fall winter collection for inspiration for our spring summer or look back to the spring summer collection of earlier this year. i know some fsshion brands, fast fashion in particular, would release items in australia much later after releasing it to the world. i realised this through fate, travelling from singapore to australia, and seeing the same few pieces on the sales rack and on the new arrivals rack on 5heir respctive countries

  31. Fapnyr on January 17, 2019 at 5:32 pm

    Justine do vids for us men too

  32. Victoria Biel on January 17, 2019 at 5:33 pm

    The so-called 80’s fashion was really just a throwback to the 1940’s. Nothing is now truly "new". All fashion is cyclical and so easy to predict as we move forward. Looking back these past 100 years, I personally love the 1930’s fashion as it produced the most becoming looks for all women. As I see it, the real trend is in how we approach fashion psychologically. People up to about the mid century always dressed impeccably and with elegance and good taste. These past 50 years have seen a sharp decline in these areas. Our casual lifestyle has spawned a generation of people that walk out in public looking like utter slobs. Who would have ever thought that ripped and torn hillbilly clothes would be considered fashionable? That’s how my parents, who grew up during the Great Depression, dressed but only because they were desperately poor and couldn’t afford to buy thread to patch up the holes in their clothes. Have we become so bored and disenchanted with fashion that we resort to such desperate measures? What’s next on the horizon for the unthinking, gullible masses? Clothes with dirt stains and grub on them? God help us.

    I just love your voice and accent (I know, I know- it’s only an accent to me.. I’m sure to you… I’m the one with the accent xo)

  34. e batdorf on January 17, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    Everything is so big! I walked around the mall for hours yesterday, unable to find anything for my 5’1, size 2, hourglass frame. 🙁 We need to bring fashion from the ’50s back!

  35. Danya Alhafidh on January 17, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    I was like oh this looks like a boring video but then she started talking and everything she said was clean, made sense, and i even learned a few things! I’m now a fan. thank you!

  36. tmcphers1 on January 17, 2019 at 5:35 pm

    Bonjour Justine! I noticed on a recent trip to Sweden that the colour burgundy was everywhere, especially in shoe shops.

  37. Suzanne Kauffman on January 17, 2019 at 5:36 pm

    I guess I’m not that trendy. I knitted a sweater once that turned out similar to one in those pictures. I didn’t fit at all and it got diposed of!! 😂

  38. Maya Bz on January 17, 2019 at 5:40 pm

    💛 So informative, thank you

  39. Norma Keith on January 17, 2019 at 5:41 pm

    Grest video! I always choose the more "classic" pieces of any trend…..sometimes I just pass altogether!

  40. Vera Vera on January 17, 2019 at 5:44 pm

    Hi Justine it’s a nice to watch your video, but I wonder about lingerie according to our body types.

  41. MimAesthetic on January 17, 2019 at 5:44 pm

    1. 80s revisited: No. I already have wide shoulders I give structure to jackets that have none, I don’t need help!
    2. Browns no: There’s a shade of brown that I like, but my goodness the kind of browns in seeing… it all looks so old… And reminds me of thrift stores.. At least people won’t have to break the bank to wear this trend, they’re all in the thrift stores from the actual 80s.
    3. Layers, No. I don’t even layer in winter, my natural inclination is to wear a top then a coat and I’m done, those layers are too busy
    4. Sophisticated knitwear: mmm I’m interested, but most of the examples I don’t like, will wait and see how other designers interprete this.
    5. Cowboy boots (EDIT midcalf boots)no. I’ve never liked them, the only shoe trend I ever like aren’t even trends, combat boots and slim ankle boots with straight block heels… EDIT urrgh never! Before I watched your video I’d been seeing the boots in some outfit pictures and I though they were terrible… Especially if it’s not the same colour as the trousers… Just cuts off people’s length and body proportions
    6. Statement jewelry: interested, without watching your video first, I’ve seen huge earrings in store and they’ve been piquing my interest.
    7. Red, Yes, I’m working on one of the accent colours in my wardrobe to be red, excited to see good pieces!

    I thought it was a bit far fetched to say I never follow trends…. But I just realised I don’t, the only trend I follow is when the trend is something classic that becomes hot topic… Like the colour red trend. Or plaid…

  42. Anita V. Vassar on January 17, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    I’m not thrilled with her advice. I’ll make my own choices.

  43. VRTIST on January 17, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    Loved it ♥️

  44. tammy dwight on January 17, 2019 at 5:47 pm

    Fun….loved the checker with earthy colors, feminine wave silhouettish, red, and the brown layers

  45. theinvisibilitycloak on January 17, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    I love this…. I laughed out loud when you mentioned the over-layering…. what is happening to our collective subconscious hahaha….love this summary, so useful! <3

  46. defne HURAN on January 17, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    Thank you Justine I love you

  47. Indie Nomad Boutique on January 17, 2019 at 5:48 pm

    We are seeing tons of pinstripes in the boutique world right now….and not in a good way LOL. I love the trends you covered!

  48. Lillian Devin on January 17, 2019 at 5:49 pm

    Thank you so much, you’re very clear and now I know what to buy/mix/etc…appreciate that! <3

  49. Bella Dubay on January 17, 2019 at 5:49 pm
