Straight from the Catwalk: Autumn/Winter 2019 Trend Forecast

The Autumn/Winter 2019 fashion shows gave us plenty of trends to explore and embrace. Whether you're extravagant or minimalist, you're guaranteed to find something of your taste amongst revisited classics and bold prints and colours.

The most prominent shoes on this season's catwalks were square toe shoes and neon heels, while enormous bags, belt bags and small structured bag stole the scene. The most unexpected accessory... was a revisitation of the bucket hat. Yes, you read that right!

We selected the best fit, colour, print and fabric tendencies for you, together with the most special items from Hirestreet so that you can leave your home feeling like Bella Hadid on a catwalk. You don't have to spend a fortune to serve great looks and experiment with the boldest new trends: rent these stunning outfits to stay on top of your fashion game.

Suits

Blazers everywhere! Paired with elegant skirts or high-waisted flared trousers, in tweed or corduroy, suits are definitely in fashion for the next season.

Puffy Shoulders

Plenty of designers on the latest catwalks decided to contrast some sharp tailoring with exaggerated, big, puffy sleeves. Here are a few alternatives with a toned-down version of the runway puffy sleeves.

Actually, only two: yolk yellow and butter-stick yellow. Did we make you hungry?These food-inspired nuances of yellow totally dominated the fashion shows.

Bright In Neon 

The pinks, yellows and greens have definitely been calling for attention on the catwalks this season. Just like many other trends this year, the neons that have been brightening up the runways were inspired by the 80’s fashion that is making a comeback.

 

 

Boldly Floral

Floral prints have always been popular, but this year we saw a great preference for flowers on dark backgrounds, for a dark romantic twist on a great classic.

We've seen incredible variations in terms of models and colours of lace, dresses entirely in lace and dresses with prominent lace features, to incorporate not only in your evening wardrobe but in the daytime one as well. However, Black lace definitely ran the show.
