SS19 runways were a parade of pastels—and the hues that were a hit included stolen-from-the-sun shades of yellow and gold. Here, Etro aced a head-to-toe mellow yellow ensemble, paired with sunglass style ET114S from Marchon Eyewear.
Designers introduced mermaid vibes with bright bohemian ensembles—including this look on the Michael Kors runway. Inspirations from the 1970s also stole the show. Nothing tops off this seaside style quite like stunning sunwear, such as this oversized retro-inspired MK sunglass from Luxottica.
Down to the Last Detail
This season’s styles made a statement with details—think fierce fringe (accomplished here by Gucci), polka dots, feathers, and more. Statement jewelry, footwear, and accessories pair well with this trend, such as this brazen Gucci sun style GG0541S shown here from Kering.
Think beige can’t be bold? Think again. Neutral numbers made for some of the most eye-catching runway looks, like this one from Max Mara, topped off with the brand’s new pilot-shaped Briseis sunglass style from Safilo.
SS19 MEN’S STYLE TREND
Neutrals also dominated in menswear for SS19—intermixed with earthy greens and tasty toffee hues. Here, Tom Ford mastered the neutral order with sleek slacks and outerwear in a sandy shade. Tom Ford style FT7530 from Marcolin completes the polished look.
