5 Trends I Don't Think Will Make It to 2019

While I can’t claim to get it right 100% of the time, I will say that when it comes to fashion trends, I like to think I have a pretty good intuition as to which are rising and which may be on their way out. This, for me at least, is especially worth considering when it comes to trending items you have to actually go out and buy as opposed to stying pieces you already own. So if you’re looking to purchase some stylish sale finds right now or invest in something to wear for seasons to come, seeing as we’re already in December, it helps to think about what you won’t be that into anymore come 2019—and I have a hunch as to just what fads those may be. To read about the trends I don’t think will make it past New Year’s Eve and, of course, shop the ones I’m betting will take their place, simply continue on below.

Despite the off-putting name, slime green has definitely been having a moment in the fashion world, and there's no denying it. However, with a push from designers toward more wearable clothing in the coming year, we're expecting neutrals to be the next It shades, with a big emphasis on brown.

For the cities in which the weather allowed, flip-flops might have been fashion week's most shocking trend of 2018, but for the year ahead, there's a new util-sandal in town, and it's a bit sportier and Teva-inspired

While PVC as a general trend may not be going anywhere anytime soon, when it comes to handbags, we're expecting a shift to slightly more structured and polished silhouettes and a lot of those being leather. 

Iridescent Outerwear

Going into 2019, expect animal print to eclipse the iridescent and futuristic fabrics that reigned supreme in 2018—especially when it comes to statement outerwear options.

Hawaiian Print Street Style

While beachy items are still on the docket for the coming year—especially spring 2019—the print of choice looks like it's going to be tie-dye as opposed to this year's Hawaiian-print craze.
