7 Street Style Trends That Will Actually Impact How You Dress This Year

Street style pictures can often have a performative quality to them, as many outfits are deliberately chosen in order to stand out. However, this fashion month amongst the clickbait styling, we spotted plenty of trends that will influence how we all get dressed this year. To discover which trends are resonating outside of the fashion week sphere, we turned to the team at Google, who told us the new-season items that are actually being searched for.

There has been a move toward more polished, grown-up styling, and the outfit we saw the most was head-to-toe beige. We saw tailored trousers, oversized knitwear and robe coats everywhere. Pleated skirts, pearl jewellery and headbands also appeared again and again in the thousands of pictures our photographer who was stationed outside the shows captured. And the Google stats show that there is a new answer to leopard print that is certain to have a big impact on the high street this summer.

Keep scrolling to see the seven street style trends that are likely to inspire your own wardrobe this spring summer.

1. Zebra Print

According to our friends at Google there, has been a 250% increase in Google Searches of zebra print year on year—indicating that this print could rival leopard in 2019. At the shows, we saw zebra-print slip dresses, trousers, coats and handbags.

2. Head-to-toe Beige

One outfit has proved the most popular this year: all-beige outfits. This looks expensive but is surprisingly easy to re-create, as you all you have to do is layer soft colours like oatmeal, biscuit, blush and off-white. You should also mix textures and silhouettes. The numbers speak for themselves—there has been a 70% increase in Google searches for "beige outfits" year on year.

3. Neon

Neon is one of those trends that I thought would remain firmly within the Kardashian-Jenner family, but at fashion month, many showgoers had a more subtle approach to acid colours. The best way to wear this trend is to have a flash of fluoro and not make it the dominant colour. That way, you won't look like a human glow stick.

4. Headbands

Prada has a habit of creating street style trends that go viral seemingly overnight, and for spring, Miuccia created headbands with a regal, exaggerated stature. They sold out almost instantly, but Etsy has an amazing selection of vintage and handcrafted bands.

6. Pearl Jewellery

Pearl jewellery has become the easiest way to give your look at 2019 refresh—whether with a pearl hair slide, a pendant with a chunky pearl or hoop earrings with a drop pearl. This street style trend is already having a big impact on the high street, as you'll find them at Mango, H&M, ASOS and more.
