Whether you like to experiment with the latest trends or like to play it safe and only try them in small doses, trends surround us every year. Every runway establishes or affirms a myriad of trends that you will later find on the clothing racks. The entire process can be overwhelming, especially when wanting to be adventurous with trendy items. Therefore, we provided a quick guide for this season’s top trends, featuring different outfit ideas that incorporate various styles for this year’s spring and summer season.
The Neon Trend
Neon was spotted at the spring 2019 shows of Christian Siriano, Versace, Natasha Zinko, and Prada to name a few. The trend was showcased from head-to-toe neon ensembles to just statement pieces. This featured outfit idea incorporates splashes of neon to an all black composition. Black wide-leg tulip pants are paired with a citron asymmetrical bodysuit and a neon pink statement bag. Black sandals and black hoop earrings refrain the outfit from looking like a bag of Skittles (even though there is nothing wrong with looking like a bag of Skittles). This outfit utilizes the neon trend to add pops of color to a monochromatic look, as well as the asymmetrical trend, which adds visual interest to the outfit. For those who do not want to venture out too far down trend lane, restrict the neon to a small piece, such as a pair of neon statement earrings or a bangle. This outfit inspiration is perfect for a summer girls’ night out or date night.
The Utility Trend
There always seems to be some type of utility trend, and this year it was all about the cargo pants, as featured at Proenza Schouler, Chanel, Fendi, and Balmain. This outfit pairs high-waisted utility pants with a skin-fitting crop top. High heel sandals, a transparent tote, and gold hoops dress up the outfit. Utilitarian and femininity styles are stealthily combined in this ensemble. Want a more casual look? Pair with boots or sneakers, which are perfect for an errand day. This outfit also features another trend: the see-through bag, which makes quite the statement piece.
The Animal Print Trend
The animal print trend is here to stay, so investing in a few pieces is not only safe, but highly recommended. Pair a leopard print blouse with distressed denim shorts and rattan flats for an outfit that is ready to tour the town. Accessorize with a wooden handle tote, wooden bangles, a tortoise shell watch, and hoop earrings. This outfit integrates the tortoise shell and wooden elements, which are also trending this season.
The Transparent Bag Trend
As mentioned above, transparent handbags are the latest craze. Not only are they fun to wear, they are practical for sporting events and concerts, since stadiums and similar locations require only see through bags. Pair a statement bag with a linen dress (a fabric that is always on-trend in the spring and summer). Finish the ensemble with embellished slides and dainty gold jewelry for an outfit that will carry you from spring to summer.
The Two-Piece Trend
Matching suit sets were spotted on the runway as trending for spring and summer 2019. Suit sets with a blazer and shorts are especially trendy and make for an easy to put together outfit, just add a cami. Accessorize with slides and a rattan statement bag for a casual summer look.

The Crochet Trend
Crochet is trending this season and it brings bohemian flair to any outfit. You can incorporate crochet details via accessories, such as a handbag, if you do not want to sport it head-to-toe. This outfit idea pairs a bright yellow crochet bag with a belted black dress. Finish the look with wooden statement earrings, leopard print slides, and over-sized sunglasses for a summer outing.
The Tie Dye Trend
Tie dye print is trendy again and is a fun one to try this summer. Wearing a cropped muscle tank in a tie dye print is a modern take on this trend. Pair this with denim cut offs, a neon mesh backpack, and platform Vans Old Skool sneakers. Accessorize with pink statement glasses and a matching neon scrunchie for an outfit that is perfect for a summer festival.
The Shell Trend
Get ready to add some shell motifs to your wardrobe this season. Layer a shell choker necklace with a shell pendant chain. Pair these accessories with your favorite bikini and sarong. Finish the look with a rattan bucket bag (and if it has shell embellishments, that is a plus).
The Colored Denim Trend
There has been a resurgence of the Sweet Valley High style as seen in the shows of Versace, Gucci, Balenciaga, and Stella McCartney. Expect to see colorful denim hanging from clothing racks and definitely do not shy away from it. Pair a bright denim jacket with floral skater dress and chunky sneakers. Finish the look with a pink backpack and add a scrunchie (for some 80s vibes).
The Neo Boho Trend
This is boho with an added twist of wanderlust vibes. This season’s bohemian inspiration come from deserts and sunsets. Paco Rabanne, Philip Lim, Oscar de la Renta, and Tom Ford, to name a few, featured tile prints, warm hues, crochet and raffia pieces, amulet jewelry, etc. This trend screams summer getaway done right. Pair a colorful maxi dress, with a raffia tote, espadrille wedges, a straw hat, and raffia statement earrings for an ensemble that is ready for a beach side dinner.
