Smart and casual design re-balanced, will influence Spring Summer 2019
Smarter, more put together looks point to a rebalancing of the fashion landscape following a period of mass casual minimalist fashion. There is a new need to dress up.
Autumn Winter 18/19 will see the quintessential wrap dress, figure flattering balanced by loose fitting sleeves, florals on dark bases, checks and muted stripes modernise this classic shapes.
The contemporary take on the classic work shirt looks great tucked into high waisted wide leg trousers, or worn untucked and oversized with a slim tailored trouser, keep cuffs tied and leave undone for a laidback aesthetic.
The oversized slouch suits of the Spring Summer 2018 are being replaced by body-skimming straight cuts and sharp shoulders nodding to the 80’s tailoring. Skirts offer a feminine replacement to the traditional trouser. The shortened hemline looks youthful when aligned with the square cut edge of the blazer, whilst paired with a midi-skirt, the look offer a more modest take on the trend.
A nod to the resurgence of 1980’s styling affecting the updated woven blouse in liquid like metallic fabrics with feature sleeves, from full and gathered to puff styles. Shine and sparkle materials are on the up to, woven lame, head to toe sequins, foiled woven or satin sheen for statement making finish.
