You can take a breath now as the whirlwind of Fashion Month has concluded. The 27-day, four-city extravaganza had celebrities, fashion editors and stylists jetting around the world to witness designer collections for spring/summer 2019 in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Even if you weren't there to experience it in person, just catching up on all the shows online can make your head spin, but worth it to feast your eyes on all the gorgeous, covetable, I-need-that-now pieces. Most importantly, it's the best way to peek the biggest trends that will surface next year, so you're way ahead of the sartorial game and know what to shop for in six months.
Yes, we're knee-deep in fall fashion, but it doesn't hurt to daydream about the new clothes and accessories we'll be wearing come warm weather (vacation-inspired tropical prints and modern versions of psychedelic tie-dye, just to hint at a couple).
If you can't wait until spring, we've gathered 21 pieces you can shop right now to channel next season's reigning trends immediately. Read on ahead and browse our selects.
These aren't your basic DIY color jobs. Spring's iterations are cooler than ever, plastered on unexpected, wearable wares via blazers, button-ups and boiler suits. Model Kaia Gerber coincidentally strutted in multiple tie-dye pieces on many runways from R13 to Proenza Schouler to Stella McCartney. Hey, the girl looks good in tie-dye.
The woven material may be lighthearted in spirit, but designers prove the piece is more than just a beach cover-up with seriously impactful iterations rendered in patchwork, shell-adorned overlays and elegant lengths we want to wear beyond the shore.
While pastels dominated 2018, sunny yellow proves to be the It color to watch for 2019. An array of shades ranging from saturated saffron to bright chartreuse occupied the runways. But don't expect any fluff -- think directional silhouettes à la glamorous floor-length shirt dresses, structured skirt suits and shiny rubber raincoats.
Begging for an approachable alternative to bike shorts? Thanks to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, the cycling staple has become a big trend this year, but let's face it -- the clingy activewear isn't for everyone. Although knee-length shorts were all over the spring/summer 2019 collections, the newest styles are offered in trouser and denim fabrications that are far more easy to don.
Florals are an obvious choice for spring and summer, but next season will focus on bold, tropical botanicals and palm prints via fashion-forward frocks and flowy separates that'll instantly transport you to a lush, warm weather destination to take you from the city to the coast.
The 2019 version of flip-flops is not what you sported as a kid. The in-between toe strap silhouette is offered in a variety of styles that elevate the low-key sandal -- think an asymmetric feathered number, the classic rendered in sleek leather and a wraparound design.
A bevy of ensembles down the runway were cinched with fashion belts that diverted our attention to the waist. It's all in the details that make the belt the star of the outfit -- utility pockets, ruffled corset and embellished boho wrap styles were notably eye-catching.
