Unexpected fashion styles making a comeback this year


If you thought tie-dye garments were reserved for the 90s, think again. On the spring/summer catwalks, the tie-dye look definitely made a comeback. At New York Fashion Week, designers proved that the spinning, psychedelic colors are making a comeback. Designers such as Hillary Taymour, John Elliott and Eckhaus Latta used the alluring technique in bright lime greens, deep blues and a soft lavender. So whether you like or not, it actually looks like the tie-dyed look might just replace your monochromatic palette of pretty pastels come spring.

Cargo pants

They may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but they sure are comfy. At least cargo pants have pockets big enough to carry your iPhone. Obviously, this isn’t the first time cargo pants have become a fashion hit – All Saints were big fans back in the 90s – but it has been long enough for them to be revived, firstly at Sies Marjan, Valentino and Prada last summer and now Fendi, Prabal Gurung and Monse. The 2019 versions – either straight-leg and cropped to the ankle or high-waisted and wide-leg.

Cycling shorts

We don’t know how these cycling shorts are becoming fashionable, but last year saw Stella McCartney, Chanel and a slew of street style stars tap into the look. So, how to wear them? Frankly, not everyone will want to, but if you are interested, then the ‘fashion’ way is to layer under a blazer. Maybe it’s time to embrace a new trend.


They’re ba-ack! Goodbye white trainers and hello flip-flops. With their low-key, breezy appeal, not to mention their affordability, thongs will be big news in 2019. When spring comes back, you will need to amp up your pedicure maintenance. Although high-end fashion designers will probably cover its flip-flops with embellishment and metallic finishes, play it safe with super simple styles in muted colors – perfect for adding a relaxed edge to a fancy maxi dress. On the other hand, a more daring pair looks great with cropped jeans and a basic white tee for an updated twist on a classic ensemble. Whichever you choose, love them or hate them, looks like flip flops are ready to take over 2019.
