While fashion experts expect some of your favorite style trends to stick around in 2019, you’re going to see them reinvented in interesting ways. It’s always exciting to look towards a new year of clothing and style, but let’s give this past year some credit: You were able to experiment with some pretty fab fashion trends in 2018. Velvet style reigned supreme not only during the holiday season, but in the fall, spring, and even summer. The denim-on-denim ensemble kept going strong throughout the year and minimalist fashion became increasingly popular. “Geometric minimalism” dominated the jewelry market, precisely as jewelry designer and expert Heena Shah predicted it would when talking to The List in 2017. Before 2018, Genevieve Hartmann Colom, the style training manager for Trunk Club, also told The List that she expected “French girl chic” to be a powerful force. And sure enough, minimalist styles with a French influence proved to be en vogue throughout 2018.
As we roll into 2019, some of these 2018 styles will continue to influence fashion trends. But at the same time, it’s a brand new year, and that means brand new trends are of course predicted to make their way into stores over the course of 2019. High-shine fabrics, genderless fashion, tons of fun colors, and feathers (yes feathers!) are just a sampling of the styles you can expect to see in 2019. We’ve done our homework and talked with experts, so without further ado, here are the fashion trends that are going to take over 2019.
