Spring Market 2019
The news in the market for Spring 2019 revolves around details and color. Sleeve details continue with cut outs, bows and bell sleeves. Color is no stranger to Spring 2019. From brights to pastels, including corals, yellows, cobalts and turquoise there is a color for every woman this season. There is a profusion of prints coming out of Europe that are new and different. They are bringing together the mundane and unfamiliar to create new textures, finishes and unexpected combinations. A wink at retro brings basic geometrics and classic standards such as stripe and checks that please the no-fuss crowd but give subtle updates of dots and multidirectional lines to add excitement.
Blouses continue to be strong in both solids, color blocking and unique prints. We are still seeing sleeve details, and now the new whimsical florals being developed in Europe. The long reign of the tunic is waning and has been replaced by a more figure friendly fit. Touches of sequins and embroideries grace novelty tees to create a flurry of mixed media.
The newness in jackets this spring is the return of the jean jacket and the bomber, both in solids and colorful prints. Once again, Europe has interpreted the floral design by printing on leather. Subtle details such as ruched sleeves and grommets give jackets a fun, but not overdone feeling. Jackets are less oversized and a bit more fitted.
Printed pants are everywhere. The newness in the pant category is in the re-emergence of the palazzo pant. The soft fitting wider leg silhouette lends itself perfectly to all the new prints. So whether you want a narrow-fitted leg, a crop pant, or a soft flowing pant, prints are blooming in every shape.
The final word in dresses for south Florida is casual and easy. Jersey and knits are prevalent, and are available in all colors, prints and florals. Details continue to be important here with cold shoulders, lace trims, and embroideries.
Simple, but elegant separates seem to continue to be the answer to the resort lifestyle here in Florida. Mixtures of comfort and style are easily found in tops with cut outs and bell sleeves and pants with ruffles and slits. Black and white rule.
Whatever your taste and lifestyle is, there is plenty to choose from in Spring 2019.
