Believe it or not, this '60s print is back and gives us an instant throwback to the hippie-times our parents used to tell us all about. Fortunately, this print is now served in an upgraded version by combining the patterns into tough jackets and dresses. Amazing combinations and a cool vibe are guaranteed with this style!
This trend will be more challenging for some people than for others but this summer, we will be walking around in see-through materials. From bags to dresses, there are no more secrets!
While some designers swear by the uncomfortable and eye-catching stiletto heels, others like Prada, Valentino, Simone Rocha or Dr Martens are more thoughtful of our painful feet. And boy, we're looking forward to next season to walk around and please our feet in those comfortable and fancy statement flats. Long live this comfy trend!
The past year, cycling pants have stolen all the attention. Think of Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian that moved the trend from the runway to social media. But thank God, it will all be a bit looser next season. Knee length, short, high waisted or not, we're quickly changing our skirts into a more boyish alternative. Our new summer go-to and comfortable all the way!
Summer 2019 will be a fashion season inspired by our favourite neon markers! You could not miss them on the NYFW. We can look forward to a summer full of bright colours! How cool is that?!
