When it comes to staying ahead of the curve and forward-planning your upcoming seasonal wardrobe staples, outfits and accessories, a look at the must-have trends from catwalks and runways is a fail-safe way to predict the hottest looks soon to hit the high street.
Taking a look at last year’s illustrious Paris Fashion Week, we’ve compiled some of the most influential trends you can expect to see everywhere for SS19 – and the perfect complimenting eyewear options to really set you apart from the crowd.
Kicking things off on a neutral tone, beige featured prominently on the SS19 catwalk. From boiler suits to workwear, this inoffensive shade crept into many collections.
Don’t be fooled, though – beige doesn’t have to be boring! Styled well, and with the right accessories, this trend will redefine everything you thought you knew about the neutral tone.
We think the MEXX 6409 pictured above are the perfect accessory for the En Beige look. We adore their nude tonal covering and classic shape, meaning they’ll compliment any and every look with ease!
If En Beige was based around sensible neutral colour palettes, California Dreaming is the wild rebellious counterpart. Featuring bold, colourful fabrics with bright contrasts and playful shapes, this is a trend that oozes fun.
Get a slice of the action with the Polaroid PLD 6054/F/S frames. A gorgeous take on the high-summer trend, these fresh shades implement the clashing colours seen on the catwalks, adding a pop to any outfit!
Get Into Print
Much like California Dreaming, but ramping it up a gear, Get Into Print sees designers embracing bold, brash patterns and prints to create gorgeous ensembles that are a feast for the eyes. Working clean stripes with busy florals, and polka dots with snakeskin jacquards, this is a trend that screams ‘anything goes!’.
With this in mind, we love the almost tie-dyed stripe detailing on the Marc Jacobs MARC 313/G/S frames. Bold enough to be worn as either a statement piece or part of a printed ensemble, they’re the perfect pair of shades to capture this trend.
Continuing the colourful trends we’ve seen so far on the catwalk, Fruity Suiting sees busy prints dropped in favour of bold block-colourings in zesty shades of green, yellow and orange. It’s a simple but solid trend that draws influence from the power suits of the 80s, blended with fun, fruity colours and modern design elements.
Keep things co-ordinated with the Savannah 8121 frames above (also available in a variety of other colours!) to really continue the 80s vibe.
Stonewashed denim and bleached fabrics take centre-stage in the above trend, swapping fruity colours for washed out tones. It’s a trend that draws inspiration from sun-bleached summer days that has us yearning for the warmer weather!
For the perfect accompanying accessory, check out the #totallook DW043 above. With their gold frames and washed out blue lenses, they’re a summer wardrobe staple.
