Style Resolutions For 2019

As we enter 2019, armed with a long list of resolutions and good intentions to kick-start the New Year, let’s not ignore our wardrobes as a place to make improvements.

While doing a cathartic clear-out of under-worn outfits and making more of what’s already in the closet will be high on most people’s New Year determinations, from more jewellery to embracing colour, these are the five style resolutions to embrace for a more fashionable 2019.

INVEST IN MORE JEWELLERY

From arm bands at Chloé to huge earrings at Chanel and layers of wrist candy on and off the catwalks, this year bigger is better and more is more. Opt for chunky necklaces and big earrings while the weather is on the colder side, then play with stacking arm bands, bangles and bracelets when it’s warm enough to bare your arms.

WEAR MORE COLOUR

Emilio Pucci spring/summer 2019

Those stretchy skinny jeans that feel like PJs might be your fail-safe everyday go-to choice but make this year the one where you explore some new denim trends. The coolest shape of the year will be slim straight-legged styles that skim the leg, not cling to it. Try Rag & Bone’s Ankle Cigarette style, which looks very smart with heels and a crisp shirt.

FIND THE PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS

USE A GROWN-UP HANDBAG

Prada spring/summer 2019
Salvatore Ferragamo, spring/summer 2019

Handbags are returning to more practical proportions (praise be), with grown-up, top-handled styles that straddle the line between a briefcase and serious arm candy. At Valentino, gold hardware flashed on leather in shades of turquoise, red, pink, and black, while Miu Miu deployed bejeweled details on sophisticated croc finishes and similarly soignée styles appeared at Jil Sander and Salvatore Ferragamo.

GET ON BOARD WITH THE ANIMAL TREND

Giambattista Valli spring/summer 2019

Truly, this trend isn’t going anywhere. After prowling down the runways for autumn/winter 2018, spring’s catwalks saw another slew of animal prints appear on the collections of designers including Gucci, Rochas and Saint Laurent, with zebra and tiger stripes joining leopard and giraffe spots, as well as lots of python print, on everything that can be worn. If you haven’t yet answered the call of the wild, now’s the time.
