The best fashion trends of 2019

In this day and age, however, trends go out of style extremely quickly, so you have to make the most of them while they last, and that’s why we’re remembering some of the best trends the fashion industry has seen in 2019 so far.

2019 has been a busy year for fashion. There have been re-emergence of old trends such as velvet, double denim, and corduroy to completely new and innovative takes on high-end fashion. In this day and age, however, trends go out of style extremely quickly, so you have to make the most of them while they last, and that’s why we’re remembering some of the best trends the fashion industry has seen in 2019 so far.

80s Revival

A 2019 fashion trend that we love is a combination of all different trends, and that’s the 80s revival trend. Trends that we hated in the noughties have become some of the most loved once again, such as double denim, velvet, and corduroy. We could go on, but the list is endless! From handbags to dresses and even shoes, it seems that everything these days is being covered in crushed velvet. With celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Rita Ora rocking the velvet vibes, it’s no wonder why crushed velvet is one of the must-have fabrics in 2019. Vintage fashion in general been making a revival, but the trend that we’re glad is back is double denim. Whilst a controversial choice of styling, double denim gives off a cool, bad boy kind of look that people are becoming obsessed with.

Chunky Sneakers

Whilst this trend really took off back in 2018, it has not faded away; rather, the complete opposite, it is growing at a rapid speed! One of the reasons that this trend has picked up speed is the uniqueness that the sneakers exude. With the rise of social media celebrities, everyone is doing everything they can to stand out and embrace their individuality, and these sneakers help you to do just that. The popularity surrounding this style of sneaker is so immense that even the big fashion houses are getting on board with the style, with great examples such as the latest women’s Gucci sneakers. Since they are still so popular, it can be difficult to get your hands on this style of shoe, so make sure that you visit SSENSE to browse their range of women’s Gucci chunky sneakers, and also take a look at the other sneakers that they offer for women.

Neon

One of the true either love it or hate it trends of 2019 has been the, seemingly out of nowhere, the surge of neon-colored clothing and accessories. Making appearances on catwalks all around the world and notably in fashion capitals such as London, Paris, Milan and New York, the neon trend confidently conquered the high-end fashion world and made its way into stores all over the world. Whilst seemingly difficult to style, that hasn’t stopped neon from taking over the world, and the reason for this is the same reason that the chunky style sneaker has taken off, it’s all about the ability to stand out, and what better way to light up a room than wearing clothes that, well, look like they’re literally lighting up the room.

Nowadays fashion trends don’t seem to have the ability to last as long as they used to, but the trends that have been covered in this article have made such a huge impact on the year’s fashion that we hope they never fade away.

PUMA announces a new partnership with Rosé, a member of one of the best-selling girl groups of all time, South Korean musical quartet BLACKPINK.

Rosé has established herself as a dominant and inspiring force in the K-pop world, as well as a style icon in her own right. Through the partnership, Rosé will bring her vision, voice, and unique insights to PUMA’s global campaigns and storytelling. The Korean-New Zealand K-pop star’s ambassador role will be dedicated to amplifying PUMA’s catalog of iconic silhouettes and supporting the “Rewrite the Classics” program, which celebrates PUMA’s most timeless franchises, bringing them into a new generation.

Rosé says, “I am so excited to join the PUMA family. I cannot wait for my fans to join my next chapter with PUMA.”

Joining PUMA Sportstyle ambassadors who have had a transformative impact including Rihanna, A$AP Rocky, Dua Lipa, and Skepta, Rosé kicks off her partnership wearing the PUMA Palermo, styling the iconic low-top in her very own way. Over the course of the partnership, the K-pop idol will support additional classic franchises in PUMA’s Sportstyle category.

“Rosé’s remarkable influence on music, fashion, and culture globally are such an inspiration. We are thrilled to embark on this journey with her, where she will play a diverse role, leveraging her knowledge and vision to help us redefine our classic space.

Loved around the world for her rock star persona, Rosé discovered her interest in music at a young age. Learning to play the piano, and later the guitar, brought out a deep passion for singing, and songwriting. Rosé’s debut album ‘R’ arrived in 2021 with a lead single “On the Ground,” which broke the record for the most-viewed music video in the first 24 hours on YouTube by a solo K-pop artist. Rosé is also the winner of a Hanteo Music Award, and a Mnet Asian Music Award, and boasts the honor of being the first artist to top the Billboard Global 200 as a soloist and as part of a group.
