From her coveted front-row spot, Anna Wintour has the best view of every major collection that comes down the runway. That's why when she doles out her thoughts on the latest trends, you can bet we're all ears. In a new video for Vogue, Wintour reveals the trend that's out for 2019—and what's replacing it.

"The idea of anything that's overly sexy, overly clinging, or overly look-at-me has simply gone out the window," Wintour says in the video. "And then it was interesting to see a young designer like Paul Andrew, who I think has been at Ferragamo for about a year now, also embrace the aesthetic that Riccardo Tisci took at Burberry, which was very much an ode to a grown-up woman who has a career, goes to the office, goes to work, but is not looking for look-at-me clothes. They want something that is much more refined."

So there you have it: Wintour says that sexy, over-the-top clothes are out and grown-up, sophisticated pieces will be in for 2019. Scroll down to watch Wintour's full review of the Milan shows and shop the refined trend she endorses.

Other Grown-Up Pieces for Work 

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
