In general, pretentiousness, shocking and overloaded with details is a thing of the past, the riot of color and cut subsides. Shocking and sometimes absurd images are replaced by more elegant and seasoned models. Many trends have moved from past seasons. They have become more restrained and refined. Femininity and elegance will be in fashion. Let’s review 20 trends for skirts that will be relevant in the spring-summer of 2019.
The avant-garde print will help to attract attention or stand out from the mainstream. In fresh collections, designers actively use fragments from avant-garde paintings, pop art elements or simply bright asymmetric strokes to create fashionable outfits. The skirt was no exception. In models from Prada, Marni, A.W.A.K.E. avant-garde prints convey the aesthetics of progressive art. Often a non-standard pattern on the skirt is combined with an asymmetric cut or unusual decor..
Pleated pleated skirts are the trend # 1 of spring-summer 2019. Fashion weeks have shown that pleated pleats can be diverse. Pleated skirts to the middle of the knee, midi and maxi are in fashion. Color performance can be very different – from a restrained gradient to a bright floral print.
Not without experiments. Ermanno Scervino pleated skirt, made in an asymmetric style, is far from stereotypes and looks more than original.
Yellow color has become one of the dominant at the latest fashion shows. At the haute couture collection demonstrations, it was impossible not to notice the abundance of juicy shades of yellow.
Despite the “autumnal nature” of some shades of yellow, leading world designers assigned him an honorable place in the list of fashionable palettes for spring-summer 2019. It is easy to explain – four juicy yellow shades immediately entered the fashion palette from Pantone experts: Turmeric, Aspen Gold, Mango Mojito and Lemon Verbena. Fendi, Marni, Carolina Herrera, Dries Van Noten and other fashion houses presented skirts in these bright and cheerful orange and lemon yellow tones..
The rough layers of shirts, trousers and jackets are a thing of the past. Now even layering is designed to make a girl irresistible. Tom Ford skirts are particularly feminine. And it’s not just the graceful cut and the choice of luxurious materials.
Karl Lagerfeld went the same way. In his collection are strict lines of skirts with an asymmetric cut. And Ermanno Scervino offered an airy, multi-layer pleated in a delicate ballet style.
Many designers this year abandoned natural fur, supporting animal welfare societies. But this did not affect the creation of outfits made of artificial or genuine leather. Leather skirt – must have spring 2019.
Coarse-tinted varnishes and acid colors are no longer relevant. Now the trend is a leather skirt just below the knee in soft tones of soy, butter with rum or deeper colors of mocha and toffee. Embossing remains, but not in the form of a snake or crocodile skin relief. On skirts made of leather, the logos of famous brands are increasingly adorned.
The desire to show a woman in all its glory is the key idea of spring-summer 2019 fashion shows. It is not surprising that an abundance of skirts with slits appeared on the catwalks. Most often, these were midi skirts with a side slit, as in the models from Altuzarra and Carolina Herrera. But there was a place for long models, like Zimmermann.
The trend is deep incisions that almost completely open the thigh. But high fashion gives only ideas, and you can implement them according to your taste and, of course, according to the weather and situation..
Coquette and wide belt
The emphasis in spring-summer fashion is not only on the legs, but also on the waist. To emphasize the grace of the figure, to strengthen the “hourglass effect” will help skirts from Eudon Choi and Marc Jacobs. The waist in them becomes thinner due to a large yoke or wide belt.
To draw attention to the thin waist even more, designers propose to complete the image with a thin strap. This technique was already popular in the 80s. Then, to narrow the waist, fashionistas used wide elastic belts and belts, and flirts appeared not only on skirts, but also on trousers, jeans, overalls. So retro trends still continue to inspire designers to create stylish new products..
Ruffles and shuttlecocks
What could be more feminine than ruffles and shuttlecocks? Unisex and masculinity in women’s fashion have exhausted themselves. Now in it there is no place for army boots, angular lines and rude forms. Everything speaks of the desire to return special trepidation to a woman, to allow her to be not so strong.
If you are in solidarity with this trend, then you will definitely like a new trend – ruffles and shuttlecocks. Wavy frills appeared everywhere: on dresses, trousers, jeans and bags. And, of course, the ruffles did not pass over the skirts. According to the version of Burberry and Max Mara, small frills should pass along the edge of the skirt. And at Balenciaga and David Koma, they offered a luxurious one-year skirt with a large flounce.
Asymmetry began to follow all the rules of secular fashion. Skirts with an asymmetric cut no longer shock ripped edges, chaotic cuts or loops of chaotic configurations. Asymmetry still cannot be predicted, but it has definitely become more restrained.
Hence the raid of secularism in models from Victoria Beckham, A.W.A.K.E., Blumarine and Ermanno Scervino. Asymmetry is achieved in many ways. For example, due to an uneven cut, an asymmetrical patch pocket or a beveled placket.
Print “Polka dot”
Print “Polka dot” continues to hold a leading position. In haute couture collections, skirts with a “Polka dot” pattern are increasingly found. The perky image of a cute schoolgirl was created by Burberry stylists. But Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors went the other way. Designers decided to embody the image of a flamenco dancer – the print “Polka dot” adorned the fluffy skirts and appeared on ruffles and ruffles.
Sheer clothing is the hit of the last few seasons in a row. Skirts, dresses and pants made of transparent chiffon, organza and veils will be relevant in the warm season of 2019. Such models have many advantages – feminine, flying textures look soft and fresh.
Designers have proposed three ways out of the situation. The first is to wear elastic shorts under a transparent skirt. The second is to make the skirt layered. So the airiness of the outfit is not disturbed, much will be hidden from prying eyes. The third method was proposed by Karl Lagerfeld as part of the show of the Fendi collection. You just need to put on a transparent skirt over the usual.
The hype for the print “cell” is slowly subsiding, but the trend does not disappear from the fashion catwalks. Plaid skirts are still reminiscent of themselves. For example, in the Carolina Herrera collection were presented skirts-trapeze to the middle of the knee. An interesting detail – a modest cage – is now combined with a daring cut to the waist. The most important plus of the Scotch is versatility. A checked skirt will suit everyone: from young girls to mature women. Only you need to choose it correctly for the figure.
For several seasons in a row, designers have focused on sequins and shiny materials. They can be large and resemble fish scales, as in the skirts from Y / Project and Ashish. And they can be very small, thereby creating a gradient overflow, like Christopher Kane.
And do not think that a skirt shining from sequins is suitable only for evening looks. Clothes, shoes and bags decorated with shiny scales can even fit into a business image. A great example was demonstrated by Tadashi Shoji.
A pencil skirt is one of the trends that applies to exemplary classics. But this time, in addition to strict pencil skirts, designers offer us models embroidered with sequins, with deep side cuts, fringe and patch pockets. Laconic cut perfectly “pacifies” the pathos of flickering textures and frank cuts.
Although there have been attempts to free the strict classics from the harsh framework of the genre. So there was an image from Oliver Theyskens – a pencil skirt in bright lemon color complete with an open top.
Predatory and snake print
It seems that predatory and snake prints have taken root in fashion for many years. They remain in the top most sought after. Predatory and snake-print skirts for spring-summer 2019 were offered by many famous fashion houses such as Antonio Marras and Miu Miu. The total look with a predatory print has not lost its relevance, an example is a mono image from Burberry.
“wrap” – skirt
Sophisticated, asymmetrical and layered skirts are rapidly gaining fashion catwalks. Designers presented unexpected solutions on the theme of “wrap” skirts, assembled using all kinds of tricks – tucks, assemblies and pleats.
For example, in models from Eudon Choi and Tod’s. Such models perfectly hide the flaws of the figure. By adjusting the length of the wrap skirt, you can hide the imperfections of the legs or emphasize their advantages. Skirts in the form of a trapeze are also relevant, with which the history of wrap skirts began. Such models were seen in the collections of Paul & Joe and Prada.
The skirts of the spring-summer season 2019 are moderation and elegance. And only the decor of feathers violates the restraint and asceticism of the collections. It is difficult to say why feathers and down were so fond of designers. Maybe for the dynamics that they create while walking or for the lightness that gives the image.
But one thing is clear: airy feathers should be present on the fashionable skirt, albeit in the form of a small trim bottom. It is quite possible that weightless fluff runs all over the canvas, as, for example, in skirts from Rochas and Dries Van Noten.
Little attention was paid to the decor, but he was still present on fashion haute couture skirts. In a special favorite, the designers turned to fringe. With it, the stiffness of the pencil skirt from Sally LaPointe was diluted. Now it’s important to combine fringe with fashionable hand made trends. So, in a skirt from Sonia Rykiel, a canvas made using the macrame technique was used, which has become the main trend of this season.
The hobby of designers with retro trends brings miniskirts from the 80s-90s to the fore. Different versions of a mini skirt are in fashion: in the form of a trapeze, with frills, assemblies, narrow and flared.
A short, narrow skirt with large patch pockets that extend beyond the hem is relevant now. Beautiful casual looks with a denim miniskirt decorated with giant pockets were presented in the Alberta Ferretti collection..
Not a single spring-summer season is complete without a floral print. Michael Kors believes that a floral skirt will be appropriate even in the office. Well, for the casual style, the designer came up with a whole lineup of floral skirts.
You can draw inspiration from the latest collections of Escada, Michael Kors, Paul&Joe, Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine. Ermanno Servino has a light, naive look with romantic airy bell skirt and unobtrusive floral print..
Fashionable skirts for the spring-summer 2019 season are not distinguished by pretentiousness or flashy colors. Not found in fashion collections of absurdity, challenge or outrageous. Everything was aimed at creating balanced and calm images. The massive decor was replaced by fringe, sequins and a few feathers. Rough masculinity has given way to feminine looks. Ruffles, lace, coquette, cuts, pleated – all this came back to prove that a woman under any conditions should remain a woman.
