With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, it is definitely time to start thinking about assembling that all-important seasonal wardrobe! You might not think that transitioning from mild weather to warm weather is such a big deal, but in terms of signature style, spring and summer can often be worlds apart. Of course, along with the changing of the seasons, there is also the yearly change of trends to contend with, but if you can get on top of those trends before the full force of the summer hits, you will be just fine! Here are the top five fashion must-haves for summer 2019 in the UK.
Beige Clothes and Accessories
That’s right, beige! The neutral juggernaut has been a huge presence on all of the runways that matter this year, and you can expect to see a lot of beige pieces filtering down to the commercial fashion levels. It doesn’t have to be boring, especially if you pair a predominantly beige outfit with a vibrant colour pop clutch, shoes, or makeup look.
Bows are going to be big this summer. I’m talking bows in the hair, bows around the neck, bows in interesting combinations on clothing … bows everywhere! There is a whimsical quality that designers seem to be favouring this year and bows of various sizes, materials, and styles are set to be a really important feature of the trendiest and most cutting edge outfits this season.
All Things 1980s
It’s a trend that has been strong for a while, and it’s a trend that is going to stay strong throughout the summer. People are looking back to the ’80s for fashion inspiration in the form of harsh angles, neon colours, even shoulder pads in formal wear. Don’t be afraid to express the slightly cheesy side of your fashion this summer; it will be bang on trend.

Now is a better time than ever to invest in a great quality prairie dress as they are set to be one of the leading trends over the course of the summer. The turn towards longer sleeves and longer lengths is an interesting one, almost harkening back to a time of more demure fashion. Flowing floral fabric is definitely the leading choice in the prairie dress department.
Skate culture on the runway tends to pop up every five years or so, and 2019 is set to be another year where a more casual, flannel, denim-based look is the height of street cool. You don’t need to know how to skate like a pro, but it will definitely help you in the style department this summer if you know how to dress the part!
Ultimately, the trick to executing a great trend is adopting the style but still managing to keep a lot of your own signature presence within it. Hopefully, all of these suggested trends are ones that you can merge into your own wardrobe and fashion sensibilities easily. The goal isn’t to pretend to be someone – it is to expand your own signature style with fun new ideas and concepts.
