Since we live in a world of recycled knowledge and exploration, it makes a lot of sense when we see fashion trends of the past make a healthy comeback as the years go by.

Fashion trends for 2019 have already been decided thanks to the catwalks in New York, Paris, Milan and London Fashion Week. So if you want to avoid this year’s rush over that leopard print Realization Par skirt, and are wondering which throwback trend will be this year’s ‘it’ print, this is what you need to know. Hint: If you dig around at the back of your wardrobe, you’ll probably own a few of these already

Neon

Neon has already made its way to our high street shelves thanks to a number of celebs – read, mainly Kim Kardashian – working some fluorescent hues of late. And it looks set to continue into 2019.

Animal Print

The good news is that if you bought a leopard print item last season, you’ll still be able to wear it come this time around as animal prints continued to rock the catwalks at fashion week.

Mini Bags

Jacquemus Le Sac Chiquito posits an alternate primary function of a handbag, which is to adorn an outfit and nothing more. At four inches wide, four inches tall, and two inches deep, this bag will hold about as much as my small wallet does (but not the wallet itself), as well as the two keys required to get into my apartment from the outside world.

This bag keeps popping up in famous hands—Priyanka Chopra, Dua Lipa, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, Selena Gomez, and Emily Ratajkowski 

Tie-dye

From Prada’s 60s-style shift dresses and pencil skirts to R13’s bright blazers and hoodies, tie-dye made a reappearance on the spring/summer 2019 catwalks. Although we have, in part, fashion’s penchant for nostalgia to thanks for its return, tie dye’s original sartorial association with individuality and anti-establishment feels very of the moment.
