New Year, new fashion rules: Street style trends to try (or reconsider) in 2019
Word on the street
Trends wax and wane, though some tenaciously outstay their welcome. They also have the power — at least according to self-important fashion folk like ourselves — to mirror the world, as it is and as we wish to see it. A new calendar year, loaded with resolute intention, is a chance to wipe the slate clean and rebuild, garment by garment and accessory by accessory, a fresh fashion vocabulary. If you should find yourself itching for (sartorially-charged) change, we've assembled a shortlist above of the key street style trends to experiment with in 2019.
Some are familiar and comforting — think midi lengths and trouser/skirt suits — while others are simultaneously bewildering and enticing —"Could I rock a pair of bike shorts far from the nearest cycling path?" — and best left to those proficient in the language of style. You've been warned. Click through, get inspired, and let the wardrobe shenanigans begin!
