The Top 15 Runway Trends for S/S 2019

Just as you were all getting comfortable with your winter wardrobes and rediscovering the art of layering, the close of 2018 has got some of us thinking about our 2019 wardrobe. From bike shorts with blazers to head-to-toe bleached denim and scuba materials, these are the top runway trends from the S/S 2019 fashion weeks.

LoL, Sandra

There is a reason why Pantone announced it the color of the year 2019.

California on your mind? Then go for all that zesty tie dye and those endless wetsuits.

Lace sliced and diced, that is what the new season is about.

70’s crochet, fishnet fabrics and beaded macramé, a crafty theme swept through the summer collections.

The easiest way to energise your wardrobe? Take your tailoring in vibrant citrusy shades.

Decorate your looks with a supersized bow and take the streets with more fanfare than a trumpet.

One trend from the ’90s that I was convinced I would never see again… sorry, my fault! Cycling shorts are back!

Very beautiful! The designers used pleating to create a truly haute-couture silhouette.

It is a fact, the Eighties just won’t go away. This season, it is the acid wash denim that caught my eye.

My ‘it’ item of the season! An all-in-one suit is now your go-to wardrobe solution.

Next season’s partywear diktat is as frou-frou as they come: just add feathers and fringe.

Classy polka dots the transparent way, good girls gone bad!

Live up to the era of the hippie! Rock star and bohemian touches are still found everywhere.

This summer, you’re not fully dressed without a head piece that becomes part of your floral explosions. Wall flowers need not apply.

Have sequins ever ‘not’ been on trend? Perhaps not, but they were so prevalent at the S/S 2019 shows that we can’t ignore them. Personally speaking, I love the take of these designers above that love to work in general with the sparkling fabric. Those looks seem fresh and modern.

My Look: Coins and Dots

Sandra Bauknecht - Dolce Gabbana-Coins and Dots

I am completely obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana‘s S/S 2014 collection inspired by ancient Sicily and Greece. The prints and details are all about coins that give the impression they have just been dug up on an archaeological excursion and in combination with polka dots, they look divine, sophisticated and feminine. The bag is like a treasure chest that I will surely keep forever!

My look: Polka dot top, cotton-blend coin-jacquard mini skirticoncoin earringsoversized gold-tone coin belt, ancient coin print scarf and inlaid wood top handle bag, all by Dolce & GabbanaJanis leather pumps by Saint Laurent, Mitza ring by Dior Haute Joaillerie and Lady Excalibur watch by Roger Dubuis.

My Look: Keep Glam and Rock On

One evening in Cannes, I was invited by Chopard to the “Somebody to love” party at Canal+. Mark Ronson, face of Fan di Fendi pour Homme, whom I had met in 2011 at the Versace for H&M Launch Party in NYC, was the DJ for the night. I have to admit that I had far too much fun so unfortunately I didn’t take too many photos…

My look: Pink marabou jacket by Emilio Pucciruched taffeta and lace dress iconby Nina Ricci, gold python pumps by Tom Ford, earrings by Chanel, crocodile clutch iconby Nancy Gonzalez and Silver Glam stay-ups by Wolford.

Trend Alert F/W 2011: Dots

Trend Alert Dots

Yesterday I showed you the best dot tights for this season. They are a very good investment. This strong trend is staying for F/W 2011. Get ready to cover yourself in all manners of dots. On coats, dresses and on the legs, right on the spot and so hot!

Dots Dots Dots

Wolford (see photos below) offers great dot designs through all of their product groups for F/W 2011, from the Bonny dots tights to the Bonny stay-ups. Modern dots can also be found on lingerie in the muted colours of nude and black and in their ready-to-wear line.

Put on your best dots!
