Last year was certainly the year of the dress, but thanks to the trends waiting around the corner for us this spring, our dress obsession is only going to become even more heightened. Many of last year's key dress trends are continuing, such as leopard-print midis, prairie dresses and sheer tulle beauties, however, there are also some new additions to the mix.
In 2018, spots and florals proved the most popular prints, but this year, we'll see more dresses that mix two or more prints in one dress—think one arm in one print, and the other arm in another print. One of the best dresses we saw on the runways was a white floral crochet dress at Chloé, which is certain to spark a trend for Ibiza beach club–ready cover-ups. Keep scrolling to see seven dress trends we predict will make headlines in 2019.
1. Prairie Dresses
Prairie dresses were popular last year thanks to brands like Ganni and Batsheva, however, they are going to become more dramatic this spring with exaggerated sleeves and skirts.
