I shared this Womenswear trend board with my email subscribers a few months ago for SS19. Subscribers get the trend boards from me in advance, as soon as I’ve made them. If you’d like a monthly moodboard delivered straight to your inbox, you can sign up at the bottom of this page.
This trend seemed like a great one to create in the dull Winter months - something bright to get us looking forward to summer and the warmer weather. Personally, I think this look could be suitable for high summer, with a focus on lighter fabrics and sleeveless styles or transeasonal l as well, with the addition of the trench coats. I LOVE the new trend for adding prints to trench coats. There’s definitely the option for full on print, but it can be pared back like the example in my moodboard.
Print-wise, there’s a heavy focus on florals here and an interesting use of mixed scales and styles within one item. I like the idea of having one ‘fine art’ style flower and another more abstract, I think it makes for an interesting look, but you could also mix the same print, but in a different colourway and scale.
For the silhouette, volume with a nipped in waist is key. Big sleeves are showing in a huge way, not just for this trend but in others as well. Circle cut skirts are key for this too, giving a ladylike elegance to the range. Because of this, I feel this trend is only really relevant to the Women’s market, I think it’s too grown up for the young fashion or childrenswear audience.
I hope you like this trend as much as I do and feel inspired to create your collection!
