There are several outfits that went viral in 2018—leopard-print slip skirts, Veja trainers, floral tea dresses, ankle boots… We could go on and on. It might not be 2019 yet, but there are six outfits already set to define 2019 style. For those who always tackle daring Instagram trends, over the next 12 months, you're likely to wear cycling shorts with a white statement blouse, tie-dye something and at least one fringed skirt.
However, for those whose style is a little more classic, in 2019 you should consider wearing all-beige, tonal outfits and paperbag trousers with a sleek racer tank. Thanks to the street style crowd, we don't need to wait for the New Year for inspiration on how to wear these looks (the likes of Lisa Aiken, Tiffany Hsu and Julie Pelipas are already wearing 2019's viral outfits). Keep scrolling to see and shop the six outfit ideas that will define 2019.
1. White Shirt + Cycling Shorts
Style Notes: One of the most Instagrammed catwalk images from the spring/summer 2019 collections was Kaia Gerber at Chanel wearing a white shirt, chain belt and black cycling shorts. This is destined to be a key outfit for 2019.
2. Sage-Green Tailoring
Style Notes: Sage green is the key colour of 2019, and suits and tailored jackets look amazing in this shade of green. Make like Sylvie Mus and pair with classic black accessories.
3. Fringe Skirt and Wrap Shirt
Style Notes: Fringed skirts are set to replace slip skirts in 2019. They look amazing styled à la Jacquemus with a white wrap shirt.
4. Racer Tank + Paper Bag Trousers
Style Notes: This was one of the most popular street style images of 2018, so we can expect to see many recreating this look in 2019. Plus, Ganni included racer tanks in its spring 2019 collection, confirming this T-shirt is destined for cult status.
5. All Beige
Style Notes: One of the key trends for spring/summer 2019 is tonal beige outfits, and this always looks elevated whether you're shopping at Zara or old Celine. You don't have to stick to the same shade of beige, either. Make like Lisa Aiken and mix richer shades with champagne colours.
6. Tie-Dye and Ankle Boots
Hand in Fire
Style Notes: Tie-dye is going to be making a grand return in 2019, and we love Tiffany Hsu's black ankle-skimming dress with a flash of old-school tie-dye along the sleeves and neckline.
