Now that Resort ‘19 has wrapped up at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and Cruise ‘19 starting to heat up in Europe, these latest beach and resort wear collections give us a preview of the must-have 2019 fashion colours trends, we’ll all be wearing.
Millennial pinks, deep reds and the occasional infusion of vibrant yellow may have been the trend for 2018 but 2019 will be all about the contrast between dark and light.
Colour clashing and primary colour brights are out, in 2019 we will see darker colours like deep blue and olive green took darker and shades like sky blue and camel taken lighter.
Below we showcase your 2019 fashion colours trends forecast, we suggest you get yours now.
The Pantone named ‘living coral’ (Pantone 16-456) has been described as the hot shade for 2019. The Colour-matching Company described the colour as “an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone” that was all about optimism—something we feel is much needed as of late.
Anyone following the spring/summer 2019 runways during New York Fashion Week could easily spot what that thing is for next season: the colour yellow. Ahead of Fashion Week, Pantone state a marigold called Aspen Gold as the yellow for the season, but, really, there are plenty of different shades represented, from paler or darker to more lime.
In 2018 we saw a lot of sky blues, in 2019 we will expect to move towards a slightly deeper powder blue. Many collections are incorporating powder blue, which we feel fresh and feminine. Paloma Blue have incorporated elegant powder blue pinstripes with a deep blue accent detail.
We have always had a natural liking for the wearable olive green, but this season’s take on the colour takes it to a darker and moodier place. Cloe Cassandro incorporates this new take on olive green, dying silk-chiffon to produce beautiful and free-flowing cover-ups and dresses (pictured above).
Terracotta emerged has a colour trend in 2018, although in 2019 we are predicting a deeper and slightly more brown-toned take on the colour veering towards Auburn. Cloe Cassandro and Paloma Blue have included doses of warm reddish-browns, signalling the shade will see darker days.
Egyptian blue was a main feature on the recent runways. It is a one or two shades lighter than International Klein Blue and is a staple colour in many of our stocked brands’ 2019 collections. Asceno and Cloe Cassandro offer a luxurious take on Egyptian Blue, pairing it with subtle block shapes.
