2019 Style and Accessory Guide

Mardi Gras is over and Easter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to freshen up your wardrobe with lighter, brighter spring styles. Here are a few of the season’s trendiest pieces for both men and women. 


For the past few years, floral patterns have been the hottest trend for dresses and lightweight, warm weather tops. So much so that they started to get a little bit boring. But if you love patterns and colorful clothing, you’re in luck this spring. Rainbow hues were the hottest pattern on the spring 2019 runways. Look for long dresses in a variety of bright, stripy hues. 


Black and white polka dots are another pattern that’s big this year. Look for polka dot skirts and pair with a clean black or white tee shirt for a fun, slightly 1950s look that works just as well for the office as it does for a casual dinner. 


This is either good news or bad news, depending on how you feel about the "athleisure” trend, but biker shorts are back! Once a 1990s wardrobe staple, it has been a pretty long time since stretchy, spandex shorts have been seen anywhere outside the gym. But this year's bike shorts are actually pretty cool. Some designers pair them with an oversized blazer for a dressier look, others with a casual button down top. The truly bold trendsetters are going full gym wear with bike shorts, crop top, and athletic jacket, so that it’s hard to tell if fashionistas are hitting the gym or the town. 


If the bike shorts weren’t enough to indicate that the early 90s were all over this season’s runway, wait until you get a load of the designer fanny packs that are all the rage for both men and women.  No longer buckled around the hips, this new iteration goes over the shoulder and honestly makes a pretty cute (and handy) carryall.


Menswear usually gets awfully pastel in the spring. If button downs in Easter egg colors aren’t really your thing, this year, you’re in luck! Neon is very in for men. From neon tees to neon jackets, these pieces look best if they’re worn casually with a pair of dark jeans and clean sneakers in a solid color.
