Spring 2019 Trend #3: Tie Dye

One of my favorite trends this year is colorful, groovy tie dye! While often associated with peace signs, hippies, and “Dead Heads”, tie dye is not something we are accustomed to seeing on the runway. And yet, there it was, in all its flower power glory! It was used by the likes of Prada, Chloe, and Stella McCartney and featured in Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmo, and Elle. Check out a couple of the great designer tie dye looks straight from the runway:
However, if you can afford those, you’re probably not reading my blog! Fortunately for the rest of us, there are many affordable options for great tie dye pieces to liven up our wardrobes. Stores such as H&M, Zara, Lulu’s, Nordstrom (and Nordstrom Rack), even Walmart and Target, all have tie dye this season! And don’t forget to shop resale, vintage, and thrift shops. You can find some amazing deals there as well.
WIth the popularity of tie dye among teens, I’ve had some people ask if it’s really a trend that “grown ups” can wear. The short answer is: YES! Just be mindful of the garment the tie dye is on. Pieces such as overalls, crop tops, or shorty-shorts might not be the best choices (unless those are styles that you frequently wear anyway). But you can easily incorporate tie dye into summery dresses, rompers, coverups, and tops. Another way to make the trend look more “mature” is to choose subtle colors. Instead of bright red or neon green, go with softer shades of blue, lavender, or even black. Check out these examples below, all of which were under $50!
While tie dye may never be appropriate for the corporate wardrobe, there are lots of ways you can affordably incorporate the trend into daily life and look groovy AF! Xoxo

Spring 2019 Trend #2: Animal Prints

Remember back when leopard was something only rich old ladies or rock stars wore? I actually remember reading an article called “How to Wear Leopard Without Looking Like an Old Lady”. The times have certainly changed as leopard has been a wardrobe staple for the last several years. But this spring, pretty much ALL animal prints are fair game! Take a closer look at this trend and see which ones strike your fancy:
The most tried and true animal print is, of course, leopard. It’s been a thing for a while now, but we’re continuing to see it everywhere. Here are a few of the latest leopard looks:
While leopard may remain the most popular, snakeskin is really having a moment right now. Anyone notice those snakeskin booties that were all over Instagram last fall? Well now we’re seeing the print on swimsuits, coverups, tank tops, handbags, etc.
Cheetah, zebra, and even tiger prints were also seen all over the runways and are now in stores. And remember, if you’re not ready to dive right into this trend, ease in by trying a handbag or a pair of shoes first. Basically, anything goes this season when it come to the animal print trend which makes it a great time to experiment and find out what you like best!

Spring 2019 Trend #1: Neon

If you’ve been keeping tabs on all the Spring Fashion Weeks, you know that there are a whole slew of new trends for the spring of 2019. It can be overwhelming to keep track of them all and decide which ones are right for your personal style. That’s why I’m dedicating a new post to each one over the next couple of weeks. I’ll show you what the trend is, where you can find it, and lots of different ways that you can incorporate it into your own look.
One of the biggest spring trends will feel quite nostalgic for those of us who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s: neon! Somehow wearing it head to toe the way I did in 4th grade doesn’t feel quite right as an adult, though. And while there were several looks on the runway that did just that, you don’t have to take it that far (unless you want to – and then more power to you!).

A more practical, real-life way to wear neon is to incorporate one piece into your outfit. A bright sweater looks great with denim, or you can pair a neon skirt with a white or black shirt. And remember that there are different hues of neon. You don’t have to go full on glow in the dark; you can wear a more muted, sherbet tone.
If you still feel uncomfortable with that much color, ease into the whole neon thing with your accessories. Think earrings, purses, or even shoes:
Neon is a great trend for the spring and summer, and it’s available at a wide variety of price points. But as with any trend, the most important thing is to have FUN with it and make it work for you!
