Must-have spring fashion trends for 2019. - Roxane Mann, Walk on Water Boutique

The arrival of spring brings a sense of hope, renewal, joy, and optimism for all that is to come – refreshing our surroundings with revitalized energy. This spring is full of vibrant colors, neutrals, fun and flirty fashions, and classic coordinates. 

ON TREND: Living Coral
The Pantone Color of the Year 2019 is living coral, which is an energizing color found in nature. Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment. We’re seeing every color under the rainbow being incorporated into 2019 fashion trends ranging from vivid brights to soft feminine pastels.

ON TREND: Texture and Prints
Spring continues to be a very pretty, feminine season with lots of embroidery, crochet, lace, texture, and surface interest. From crochet to fringe to appliqués and tassels, a fun look has swept through spring collections.

Prints are everywhere this season from vintage, tie-dye, florals of all kinds, conversational prints, palm prints, and lots of animal prints. Don’t just settle on one print this season, opt for several as designers mix and match their favorites. We’re seeing pineapples, bold florals, and a pop of color play an important part in everyone’s collections. 

ON TREND: Statement Tops, Bottoms, and Dresses
Statement sleeves for tops are in. As far as bottoms and pants, anything goes. From fray to lace to crochet and embroidered hem detail. You’ll find bottoms that range in length from crop, ankle, and even wide-legged pants. Trends in dresses are showing uneven hems, the boho/prairie look, sleeve detail, bow detail, the open lace look, feminine and bold florals, mini to maxi dresses, and everything in between. 

ON TREND: Layers of Jewelry
Jewelry layering is a huge trend combining looks with triple necklaces and simple pieces. Butterflies and multicolored jewels are also showing up in jewelry everywhere. It’s been said by the great novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne that, “Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

ON TREND: Personalization
Carry your fondest memories with you! Lockets can be personalized with a photo of your choice inside. Lockets are a great trend and layer perfectly with other necklaces. What better way to show off your children, grandchildren, or a special memory. Collecting sand or pebbles from your favorite destination and adding it to your pendant is another great trend in cherishing a memory and carrying it with you wherever you go.
