Paris Fashion Week is officially over and we’ve finally had a chance to let all the fresh fashion inspiration sink in. We’ve reviewed all of the shows, and compiled a list of our top looks from our favorite Spring 2019 collections.
A few of the trends we’re looking forward to next season are utilitarian details juxtaposed with more feminine pieces, cinched in belted styles, more menswear inspired pieces, slouchy silhouettes, painterly prints, and rich, colorful suedes and leathers. We summed it all up with the looks we chose below, they represent what we would like our own Spring 2019 wardrobes to reflect.
Loewe Look # 38
This impeccably styled Loewe look would be perfect for those casual (and still cool!) spring Saturdays spent perusing the local farmers market—hence the straw tote/leather handbag combo—followed by your weekly pedicure—note the luxurious leather flip flops.
Altuzzara Look #23
This gorgeous look by Altuzzara fully encapsulates what we’d like to wear while vacationing on an obscure island off the coast of Southwest Asia. We’d also repurpose the buttery soft orange leather crop top as a layering piece with sleeveless knit dresses and wide leg breezy trousers.
Dries Van Noten Look #4
This look in it’s entirety—heavy eyeliner and all— is what we would wear on a day heavily scheduled with fashion related meetings—showroom appointments, designer previews—followed by a chic cocktail party at an art gallery in our office building.
Chanel Look #50
Arguably one of the most wearable and young collections Karl Lagerfeld has designed for Chanel in recent years, the matching set below would be one of our go-to work outfits for Spring 2019. We’d pair it with black tights, booties, and a black turtleneck for colder spring days or wear it as is with a chunky sandal for date night with our gay bestie!
Valentino Look #37
The incredibly unexpected but yet perfect combination of burnt orange and burgundy is what won us over with this look. The big leafy hat helps too, since we’d probably wear this while on a secret vacation in the Caribbean with our (in an alternate universe, of course) 23 year old boy-toy.
Paco Rabanne Look #36
We love the idea of mixing intimates or lingerie inspired garments with suiting, and Paco Rabanne nailed it with this look. In a world where we’re constantly short on time, wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to throw a beautifully tailored blazer over feminine, frilly PJs, finish it with a pair of shiny white loafers and call it a day?
Hermes Look #12
In a world where we’d spend time vacationing in the English countryside, riding horses, shooting pheasant, and having afternoon tea, we’d wear this buttery brown leather ensemble to host a garden luncheon for 25 of our closest girlfriends.
Alexander McQueen Look #9
This ethereal look by Mcqueen wins the prize for the ultimate black tie event dress. We love the fact that though it’s not exactly a gown, it’s floor length proportions, exquisitely tailored bodice, and vibrant print make it more than perfect for any formal event. Though we’d probably change the hair and switch out the chunky boots for barely there black suede sandals, we’d wear the rest of the look—including the jewelry—exactly as is.
