After a dreary winter, we’re all excited to welcome back spring and with open (and bare!) arms. And I don’t know about you, but I’m even more excited for a new season of looks – and this is a big one! From bold colors and tie-dye to absolutely decade-dent trends from the 80s and early 2000s, I found tons of inspiration at Buffalo Exchange. Read ahead for my favorite spring 2019 fashion trends!
Neon in the Afternoon
A departure from traditionally somber and subdued hues of winter, neon is everywhere this spring. The eighties revival has been trending on runways for the past two seasons and now we’re seeing it pop on the street. To incorporate the color du jour into your wardrobe, start small – a sweatshirt, belt bag or even acrylic accessories. Neon pairs perfectly with one of our other favorite 2019 fashion trends…
Vacation? All We Ever Wanted!
If you’re anything like me, chances are that you were dreaming of a getaway to the tropics this winter. With the revival of retro vacation style, you can dress for a Caribbean cruise without leaving your zip code! If this dream look is a little bold for your taste, bring bright prints back down to earth with a midwash denim skirt and sporty sandals or chinos and canvas sneakers.
Beyond the Beige
Beige may not be on your list of top 2019 fashion trends, but I’m here to change your mind. With the rise of teddy coats and the resurgence of cargo pants, beige is the perfect way to mix volume and textiles (check out the #stickofbutter tag on Instagram!) Take a page from the it-girl handbook and pair beige khaki pants with a similarly cool-toned crop top, baguette handbag and heavy metal accessories like a grommet belt or wallet chain. For the guys, a beige turtleneck with olive chinos and a plaid blazer is an easy look to wear at the office or out on the town.
2019 Fashion Trends Tie-Dye For
This spring, tie-dye isn’t just for summer camp – it’s made the very adult move to NYFW runway shows like Prabal Gurung, Calvin Klein and Gucci. For a full-on glam look, rock a tie-dye cocktail dress with statement earrings and white d’orsay heels.
Ready to Roar: Animal Print for Spring
Who knew that animal print could be so versatile? No longer just a novelty, leopard, zebra and tiger have made their way top of the food chain and we’re all starting to feel very moooved by a breakout star: cow print! When you’re ready to take a walk on the wild side, start with a monochromatic base and work your way up: from a black blouse and tights with cow print to a neon green turtleneck and zebra suit. To make a real statement, mix three big-cat prints into one look with leopard, cheetah AND jaguar! We promise, you’re going to look fierce.
Which one of these 2019 fashion trends are you most excited to shop for? If you’re already stocking up on spring and summer pieces with hopes of warmer days ahead (I know I certainly am), tag @BuffaloExchange in IG posts of your favorite secondhand finds! I, for one, can’t wait to see all the outfits this year has in-store. P.S. If you recently Marie Kondo’d your closet, be sure to bring your cleanout in – you could sell the past favorites hiding in your wardrobe for cash or trade to spend on a new-to-you springtime look!
