As always, New York Fashion Week left us stunned with its incredible designs, and some rather ‘interesting’ fashion trends for the Spring/Summer 2019 season. Some trends will hopefully be quickly forgotten whilst we are rather hoping that some will stay on. Here are my top 5 favourite Spring/Summer 2019 fashion trends from the New York Fashion Week with some advise on the best jewellery to wear with each of these trends.
Aspen Gold or Marigold … the ‘IT’ Colour
I must have died and gone straight to heaven because for me heaven would be yellow! This Marigold colour appeared on dozens of runways— wear it head to toe with a touch of another colour or paired it with white, black, teal blue, deep red … you’ll find that it goes with more colours than you thought. This bold and cheerful yellow was identified as Aspen Gold by Pantone, which it describes as: “Brightening our day, [it] stimulates feelings of joy and good cheer.” Hurray for this!
My favourite combo would be Teal Blue with Marigold …. the Blue Tourmaline and Citrine Drop Earrings being a perfect match!
Bright Technicolour Raincoats
Designers have you covered for spring showers!— not that we are excited at the thought of a wet spring or summer but this colourful outerwear could really brighten up a dreary and wet day!
Wear this cheerful raincoats with any jewellery … pearls, plain gold or silver jewellery or inject another touch of colour with your favourite colour!
Colourful Satin Suits
Blake Lively‘s recent colourful suit kick are once again the cool vibe for Spring/Summer. This time, we’re seeing the sleek separates rendered in shiny satin-like fabrics, giving them a cooler, less stuffy vibe. Perfect for expressing your very own personality whilst looking sleek and powerful!
Wear them with layered necklaces for a soft take on the rapper’s look or if you are wearing a patterned suit wear some long drop coloured earrings for a fun and classy look like the Tsavorite Garnet and Diamond Drop Earrings.
Colour Blocking – Neon Colours
This trend is not for the colourphobics! One of the major spring 2019 fashion trends we have noticed is the use of whites and yellows and other bright colours, including coral and hot pinks. While black is still a big feature, it is the brighter hues that vye for attention!
So whether you are pairing a white structured blazer over biker shorts, breezing about in silky or chiffon sunflower yellow gowns or rocking those cargo pants in white or coral, you are doing things very right. Also, watch out for the neon hues, as they have been making a strong appearance on the runways.
Wear with toned down jewellery … your clothes say it all! Large hoop earrings, soft Coloured Gemstone Drop Earrings or fine ‘Soleil’ drop earrings will be your best friends!
We have been seeing larger sleeves, particularly puffed designs for a few seasons now. The spring 2019 fashion trends somehow really bring back the past century and almost give us a royally puffed up feel.
It’s got Victorian and it’s got the ‘80s, with a whole lot of Princess Diana in there. It is not for everyone, but some of the designs were super feminine in their cuts. It might not hurt to give it a try.
Wear with fine soft jewellery or with antique inspired pieces like our Topaz and Black Diamond Drop Earrings , Morganite and Diamond Drop Earrings or our Yellow Beryl and Sapphire Ring. Simple soft diamond jewellery might do the trick also!
So what do these 5 trends have in common? You won’t get any bonus point for saying ‘COLOUR’ but as they say ‘Colour spices up your life’ so which one of these trends could you embrace?
