2019 Fashion Forecast

Updated on January 1, 2019

2018 Was a Solid Year

We saw the rise of vintage fashion, dad shoes, vintage runners, and several other unique and great things that diversified a fashion scene that was dominated by the ever so annoying subset of hypebeasts and jerryboys who all dressed in the same 10 outfits for the past 3 years. Trends in 2018 pointed to more vintage cuts, vintage aesthetics, and an overall more nostalgic and comfortable aesthetic that companies from Adidas to Helmut Lang are more than happy to supply.

A Continuation of Retro Runners and Chunky Shoes

With Balenciaga's Triple S, the Yeezy 700, and many models being revived by Nike, Adidas, and Puma, you now have more options than ever. Due to the wide availability and diversity of the dad shoe and retro runner, people have been picking up these shoes en mass. With Louis Vuitton, Maison Margiela, and Gucci slating more chunky ugly shoes for the runways in 2019, the trend doesn't seem like it will be dying for some time.

If dad shoes aren't your thing though, you still have plenty of options that have lots of hype and popularity behind them. Such options include the classic Air Max line from Nike, and the recently released Yung-1 from Adidas. The cool thing about retro runners is, unlike dad shoes, these shoes are infinitely more versatile and can be styled with anything from wide trousers and dad jeans to your favorite distressed skinny denim.

Wide Pants, Straight Leg Jeans, and Relaxed Cuts

If you said this would be a trend in 2016, you would've been laughed at. No doubt since 2015 (or maybe even earlier) skinny jeans have been dominant in the fashion world. And while skinny jeans aren't dead yet, wide jeans and relaxed cut pants are definitely catching up to them in popularity. Everyone from Ye himself to A$AP Rocky have been rocking looser cut jeans and relaxed pants. One iconic fit is Rocky wearing high visibility Dickies. Another good option for those not entirely ready to embrace wider pants are cargo pants, which are some of the most diverse pants someone can find anywhere without a doubt. Cargo pants can also be considered an essential for 2019.

This trend of less skinny pants definitely fits into the entire vintage and old school trend people have been following for the past year or so. Along with looser cut jeans and trousers, warm up pants and track pants (as well as sweatpants) have been making a serious comeback since they fit into the vintage hip-hop and athleisure aesthetics that people are reviving

Rocky is fashionable, and always a trendsetter. Maybe add some of these pants to your wardrobe for this upcoming year.

I personally prefer vintage Adidas, Nike, Champion, or Kappa stuff but if you don't want to wear used clothes places like Urban Outfitters have solid options

Tops, Jackets, Shirts, and More

Neon is easily one of the big things of 2019. Bright, vibrant colors that catch the eye and draw attention to your piece are definitely in right now. Another solid option is vibrant colors faded by wear and age. The age of the vintage top is still in, but it switched from vintage band tees and Tommy Hilfiger to anything you can pick off a thrift store rack. With designer brands like Gucci, to midrange athletic brands like Champion, and places such as ASOS making vintage inspired sweatshirts, shirts, and hoodies, it is easier than ever to find yourself a vintage looking top to experiment with.

And if all else fails, places such as Depop, Ebay, and even your local thrift/vintage store still have good vintage tops to browse from. Once spring and summer come back, there is no doubt floral print button ups will come back. And for anyone who has been to a thrift store before, you know how easy it is to find any kind of floral print button up you want.

Champion is definitely riding this vintage trend, and sometimes release pieces like this that look "reclaimed" and "vintage"

Finally, Workwear

There is no doubt everyone now wants to dress like they're a skater boy. And it's no wonder since this generation of musicians and influencers are either skaters themselves or heavily influenced by the culture. Skaters are utilitarian, and often opt for function over fashion (most times at least). This means that they need durable, comfortable, roomy clothes. What better fits their needs than renowned workwear brands such as Dickies, Duluth, and Carhartt? The workwear aesthetic not only works well if you know what you're doing, but it's possibly the easiest to actually access and learn about.

Staple pieces include hoodies (which have their origins in workwear, believe it or not), chore/barn coats, chinos and straight leg jeans, and simple tee shirts and beanies. These pieces can also be pieced together with classic brands and clothing such as Supreme, Palace, or smaller skate brands (such as Gelato) for a more authentic feel. You can also wear classic sneakers such as Chuck Taylors, any Vans, and Converse One Star to not only look like a skater, but to feel like one too (even though this aesthetic has been mass appropriated by posers lately). Workwear will possibly take over in 2019.
