Twice a year we get a sneak preview of the fashion trends of the future as the must-watch shows point us in the right direction for the must-buys of the season ahead. The spring/summer 19 shows were no exception. But you don’t have to wait until the new year to start rocking the newest trends. Read on for our top three styles to steal for spring and our picks to help you get ahead of them. Don’t be left behind.

 

Precious metals

Metallics were everywhere this LFW, from animalistic accents and full on sequin sparkle to softer, subtler undertones. The best part about this magpie-worthy trend is that it’s perfect for party season. Get shiny this winter and your wardrobe will already be polished for spring – you’re welcome!

Fresh florals

Spring florals, original right? There’s no denying we’ve seen them before but this LFW, designers pushed flowers to the extreme. From dizzyingly ditzy micro-prints to big, bold blooms no-one is playing it safe for the season to come. Don’t hedge your bets (get it?) on this one, pick a size and get blossoming ahead of this trend-to-be.

The skies might be grey but the runways more than made up for it this weekend. Neon, acid-bright colour was on everything from earrings to evening gowns. Take your wardrobe off of mute as soon as possible to blaze ahead of this trend.
