During my recently wardrobe clear out I noticed I don’t own anything leopard print or even any animal print at all. This got me thinking about fashion trends and the majority that I’ve never followed. I either don’t jump on a trend at all or just really really late, remember when chokers were a thing? I think I bought one just as people stopped wearing them and I’m glad that whole thing didn’t last too long because I definitely didn’t pull it off.
Especially in the blogger industry there can be this added pressure to keep up with the latest fashion. It’s not something I’m too bothered about, maybe because I’m not a fashion blogger and I’m trying this whole thing where I don’t buy things for the sake of it. But I can definitely understand why so many are buying into the latest trends. Personally it puts me off purchasing a piece of clothing if it’s something I’ve seen a lot on the street or online. I’d prefer to spend my money on something less popular and that’s less likely to go out of fashion.
As you can see from these photos I’m very much about neutrals colours and the trends this year seem to be everything but that. Here’s what we can expect to see more of in the coming months.

Tie-dye will always remind me of primary school. When we were taught how to tie-dye a t-shirt on the school playground. I think it’s great for festivals or hippie themed parties but this is not something I’ll ever bring into my wardrobe for daily wear.

This screams school disco all over, neon leg warmers were a think I once owned and personally I can’t see myself pulling anything neon off ever again. I’m very intrigued to see more of this in stores though and how people start styling it.

I have way too much hair for hats. But this is a look I love on others and all for anyone that incorporates them into their wardrobe.

It looks like leopard print will still continue this summer but we’ll be seeing a lot more snake print around as well. It’s tempting me a lot more than leopard if I’m honest. The classic colours are a lot more toned, black and white fit well into my style. But I’m still not certain on the trend.

There seems to be a theme of childhood fashion re-appearing this year and I’m just not feeling it. With a face that already looks like a 10 year old I’m definitely not going to look my age in Neon, Tie-Dye and Hair Clips…
Metallic, Split Design and Bows will also be new trends cropping up this spring and summer.
Are you a fan of any of these SS19 trends? Do you agree they’re a little too bold and will be sticking to neutrals like me?
