We Just Tried Out the 2019 Trends Already Available on ASOS

Here at Who What Wear UK, we’re all about delivering the latest and greatest shopping edits, as approved by our team. That’s why Team WWW UK has created this offshoot shopping column as part of our We Try Before You Buy franchise, in which we will be heading to all your favourite stores to test out new-in pieces IRL. From summer dresses to intriguing brands, prepare for changing room selfies aplenty. Is there something you’d like me to cover? Make sure to tweet or message us via Instagram for requests.

If you need intel on the latest must-haves on ASOS, the #ASOSinsiders are the people you need on your radar. With each one possessing their own unique personal style, you can guarantee there'll be someone to match your taste: From Scarlett's laid-back streetwear to Hannah's distinctive take on L.A. vintage. We never get bored of browsing their feeds and shopping their perfectly curated wish lists, helping us to cut through the thousands of new-in products and honing in on the good stuff.

With the end of the year on the horizon, we asked a couple of these tastemakers to guest star in our bimonthly shopping column and reveal the trends they expect to spike in 2019, and they didn't disappoint. Olivia and Sophia brought their A game, picking their favourite pieces from ASOS's new-season collection. They might've had the same themes, but their interpretations could not be more different. Scroll down to see what they chose and shop the looks.

Printed Dresses

"This isn't a dress I'd normally go for, but I loved the shape, colour and ribbed fabric. It fit really well and made me feel elegant, I put it with over-the-knee boots to add to the '70s feel." — Olivia

"This animal-print dress was perfect, as it's on trend and feels quite autumnal, and less cold and wintery. I loved the fringed detail on the belt and V-neck, which exposes a bit of skin. It's not currently available, but you can shop a similar look below." — Sophia

"Puffer jackets never seem to go out of style, and I love the way the neon colours compliment each other on this orange look. I also feel like bum bags are a better option compared to bigger bags when wearing a puffer jacket to avoid going OTT with the chunkiness." —Sophia

"This denim check co-ord is so easy to throw on. Minimum effort with maximum impact, it gives serious '90s Clueless vibes, but with a bit more of an edge because of the trousers. I've styled with a checked bag and a black crop top for a day look, but it could easily be worn out for the night." — Olivia

Lace

"The lace detail and pastel yellow hue of this dress caught my eye. It wasn't something I usually go for, but was pleasantly surprised at how it looked on. I love the slightly cinched waist, which helps show off my curves. It will definitely brighten up any room. This is a sneak peek from the S/S 19 Curve collection and will be dropping online in the New Year, but you can shop a similar look below." — Sophia

"I don't normally go for a maxi length, but I loved the silky fabric and lace detail of this cami dress. It felt romantic but still a little sexy. I'd probably wear it with some dramatic makeup for a New Year's Eve party." — Olivia

Neutrals

"I picked this '70s-style midi dress, as it featured all my favourite warm/neutral colours. You could easily dress this up with heels or go casual with trainers, which is what I decided to do." — Sophia

"Flares are everywhere at the moment, and I love them in this brown colour and linen-like fabric. I styled them with a square-neck crop top (which I'm obsessed with) and leopard-print boots. The beaded bag brings the whole outfit together." — Olivia
