Hello, mellow yellow. The color of lemons, marigolds and butter is the shade of choice come spring. Bright colors in general are in this season and I’m here for all of it. Let’s hope we all find the mood to match this sunny disposition.
So many obvious trends hit the runways, like asymmetrical hems and ruffles, but one that was a clear winner for me was the prevalence of suiting. Yep, we’re talking power suits.
Across the board, in both women’s and men’s shows, suits showed up constantly, but did they ever really go? They definitely evolved giving us way more suiting options, more interesting cuts and a wider range of styling options this season. On the runways we saw casual suits in unstructured silhouettes, formal blazers and full suits in bright colors and patterns.
If you’re going to commit to one new look this season, make it the pantsuit. The suit is a wardrobe classic and I never met a suit I didn’t love. Serving up some empowering boss vibes, the power suit is back and was in full force for fall and even stronger for spring. Whether you want to try the ’80s-inspired check blazer, an ultra-feminine pink pantsuit, or a mini skirt suit, there’s a take on the look for everyone to test drive.
Go oversized or go home this season. Think ’80s-like shoulders and boxy silhouettes that look like you took them from your boyfriend’s closet. Layer your suit over a turtleneck for a fall and winter-friendly ensemble like I did with this pop of yellow.
With bold, bright shades, as well as pastels. Blazers are single-breasted, double-breasted, asymmetric-knot-fastened, and the lower half is either relaxed or fitted. Whatever the shape, it’s all about color this SS19. Skirts, shorts, trousers and jackets come in bold, bright shades that can pack a punch as a full look, or be mixed up with softer hues and dressed down with denim
