I know it may seem a little crazy to be thinking about summer in the middle of winter, BUT ITS NOT! The fashion industry is always ahead making now the time to score some great items to add to your upcoming wardrobe.
The main reasons you should start shopping now are: #1) It's your last chance to scoop up some great sale items from last season before they get marked back up and/or disappear forever & #2) The new arrivals are coming out NOW & they wont stay in stock forever.
All the major sites already have spring/summer items loading up on their "new arrivals" sections daily and popular favorites get low in stock & sell out quickly! I already put myself on two mailing lists for restock alerts on items that just hit one of my favorite sites a week ago.
Again..you might think its too soon..ITS NOT!
I decided to put together this post of Spring/Summer 2019 trends. Most are re-runs (which is why it pays to get them on sale from last year if possible!)
Happy SPRING shopping!
#1) FLORAL galore..as per usual with every spring season, floral is in. Lots of florals in the form of ruffle blouses and dresses..very "doll-like"

#2) Hello TIE-DYE!! I feel like its been around for a while in terms of coverups but Im glad to see it coming back to every-day wear.

#3) WEDGE HEELS..duh! Year after year I wished I had wedge sandals but there was a part of me that thought they were ugly and unnecessary..I was wrong. Lawn parties, the simple need to be comfortable..theres always a need for neutral wedges.

#4) Logo Espadrilles: Espadrilles don't seem to be going anywhere as of lately..& I wouldn't care if they did - I'd still wear them as they're my FAVORITE spring shoe. I feel like logos are everywhere these days..especially with Gucci. Logo or not, espadrilles are a lifesaver when it comes to cute comfort in day-to-day Spring/Summer activities.

#5) High-Waisted Bikini: Always chic and practical all Summer, a high-waisted bikini is a must.

#6) Statement Sunglasses: Theres no denying that crazy sunglasses have become very popular over the past couple of years. I'm definitely not into the super tiny/triangle shapes you see some of these girls wear BUT I would go for some of the other sunglass trends this year. They are: ROUND, oversized square, yellow lenses, multi-colored lenses, patterned frames, and of course ity-bity.

#7) Tassel Earrings: I'm a sucker for statement earrings, always have been, always will. I think they're the best way to make any look POP!

#8) Net/Crochet: LOVING this trend for Summer. Just got a coverup skirt like this for my upcoming trip to Bali!
Lovers & Friends Crochet Skirt: HERE
#9) Straw Bags of any kind: I love the light airy look of straw bags for Spring. Their muted colors go perfectly with the lighter/pastel shades of spring clothes and they're so lightweight and easy to wear.

#10) Translucent Bags: I was looking up Spring 2019 bag trends and so many are just not my thing (laniard bags? mini duffle purses? top loop clutches..i can't.) Surprisingly translucent is one trend I like.. especially if done in a chic way like this Cult Gaia bag. (love their other clutches!) I can see a bag like this with a pretty two-piece set or maxi in the summertime.
