Fashion Month is over, but these trends are here to stay.

By Divya Bala

In the wake of the month-long marathon that is Fashion Week across New York, London, Milan and Paris, there exists a flurry of new ideas, colours and concepts that speak, not only to our closets, but to a communal mood. This year, apparently we’ll all be feeling a little bit more sophisticated.

While there were slightly more zany recurring motifs – think: bike shorts with blazers, brightly coloured boiler suits and chainmail – four major trends emerged that were entirely wearable, and spoke to femininity, elegance and refinement. Call it a pushback to years of athleisure, streetwear and the death of dress codes, but for Autumn Winter 2019, it’s ladies first.

Tommy Hilfiger opened his Paris show with a troupe of roller-dancers who could’ve been plucked from the lit-up dance floor of Studio 54, before launching into Soul Train-style model walk-offs. His collaboration with actress and singer Zendaya was inspired by the Age of Aquarius and favoured flares, lurex, natural hair and, where possible, footwear with wheels. Also see: Michael Kors and Altuzarra. But remember to keep it sophisticated, in line with our bougie trend, this is less Boogie Nights and more Bianca Jagger.

Possibly the easiest takeaway from the Autumn Winter 2019 shows was belted outerwear. Blazers, jackets and coats were nipped in with belts of various width, (steering clear of the larger corset styles, however) across all four fashion capitals, most notably at Michael Kors, Brandon Maxwell and Tibi.

It was all over the first look of Karl Lagerfeld’s last collection for Chanel and even in passing, what Karl says, goes. Updating on classic checks for the cooler months, a chic houndstooth was accented by prim accessories such as tan riding boots at Celine, geometric shirting at Victoria Beckham and layered over checks at Chanel.
