Predictions for the fashion trends of 2019 are that consumers will go back to basics and be more environmentally conscious.
Charlee Vawter, junior in apparel design, said she thinks there will be a focus on simple items of clothing such as slip dresses and basic white shirts.
She said she thinks this year, consumers will be more interested in clothes with a conscience, such as clothing made from more sustainable materials.
Vawter said she believes that spring will bring along floral meadow prints in light pieces of clothing.
Chloe Floyd, general manager at Behind the Glass in Auburn, said they will be pushing neutrals in store for spring to contrast the floral prints. She said spring trends for clothing will include ‘70s-inspired tops, crochet tops and cropped wide leg pants. For accessories, the trends she anticipates are fanny packs, basket purses and hair accessories such as head bands and decorative hair clips.
Vawter said that as summer approaches, she thinks there will be a transition into clothing made from cotton and linen. There will be simple pieces with special touches from designers, such as unique or mismatched buttons.
Floyd said she thinks there will be an emphasis on brands such as Free People, BB Dakota and Cupcakes & Cashmere.
