2019 Trends

In terms of fashion trends, the last few years have been busy, busy, busy as bright florals and bell sleeves abounded. But 2019 brings a return to basics for both men’s and women’s clothing. A minimalist approach and subtle colors are your best bet for staying on-trend in the new year. 

For the past few years, women’s fashion has been overrun with floral prints, but this year, flowery pieces are taking a backseat to a new pattern: stripes. According to Lauren Monroe, owner of Mimosa boutique in Lake Charles, everything from striped blazers to striped denim will be in this year. 

"This year we’ve seen a lot of lightweight striped pieces and even jeans with detail stripes,” Monroe says. 

If you’re not a fan of closely fitted clothing, these season’s laid-back, menswear inspired styles will be a breath of fresh air. Plus, the blazer and shorts combos popping up in stores will be perfect for summer casual Fridays.

"I love menswear for women,” Monroe says. "We’ve gotten some really great linen suits that have shorts with a blazer.”
But the linen trend isn’t just for women. 2019 fashion is more minimalist than seasons past, and stocking up on lightweight linen makes for a perfectly simple, clean look for all genders. This year, linen shorts in soft colors, like sage, were the biggest tickets in men’s spring and summer fashion. 

Dad jeans
After years of shrinking denim for both men and women, in 2019, jeans are finally getting a bit more relaxed. The "dad jean” trend was huge on the runways this year, which means jeans will be a little bit roomier and a lot more comfortable. 

The great thing about these subtler pieces is that they can seamlessly work their way into your wardrobe, giving an understated makeover to some of last year’s flashier looks. May 2019 be your best fashion year yet!
