Here at YOU, we love the excitement of fashion month. Twice a year the world’s most important fashion press, buyers and influencers come together to watch the designers showcase their latest collections. Not only is it exciting to see lots of newness, especially as we head into the depths of A/W, but it’s also incredibly inspiring to see what everyone is wearing to the shows since the rise in popularity of street style.
The YOU fashion team have been hitting the streets of London all weekend keeping up with the hottest emerging designers and trends. What can be frustrating about fashion week, though, is seeing the collections so early and not being able to get our hands on the items for another few months.
Although we can’t shop the exact runway pieces straight away (for most designers anyway) we can do our best at spotting the trends ahead of time that are bound to be huge next season. So, in order to be ahead of the game, we’ve scoured the SS19 catwalks so far and picked out some of the biggest trends that are easily shoppable now.
If you’re a fashion extrovert, you’ll be glad to hear that sequins aren’t just for Christmas! Invest in these now, particularly pastel colours and wear them all through Spring too.
Alice Archer’s stunning embroidery is bound to spark plenty of similar looks on the high street. Get ahead with this Zara dress now – wear with boots in Autumn and sandals next Spring.
Colour blocking is continuing as a huge trend – be brave and clash your colours like blue and red for the most modern look.
Strappy sandals were the accessory du jour this weekend – not the most practical for Winter but we’re not letting go of the warm weather just yet. You can always pair with socks later a la Preen!
Who thought checks was just for Autumn? Well, think again – Eudon Choi’s pretty check dresses felt just right for early spring next year so don’t be afraid to keep on buying and layering through Winter!
