You’re probably aware to some degree of the major trends at play for spring and summer 2019. (But just as a refresher, here’s our big, beautiful trend report.) But I’m not here to talk about anything mainstream… yet. Instead, I’m interested in what I’ll call “microtrends.” These are the hyper-specific iterations of all the bigger sartorial shifts at play, and I’ve become somewhat of an expert at spotting them (okay, it’s basically a pastime of mine at this point).
These are trends or sometimes even specific items that a handful of influencers and fashion girls have all started wearing simultaneously. Take the beige-toned outfit trend, for example. While dressing in head-to-toe neutrals is a styling trick currently flooding my Instagram feed, beige and creme-colored jeans, in particular, is the “trend with a trend” that’s earning its own microtrend subcategory. Get the gist? Good.
I’m about to share four of these microtrends that are emerging on the scene this month. Each piece may be all in the details but will have a big impact in just a few months time. Once you commit these to memory, consider yourself a bonafide insider. Keep reading to discover and shop all the microtrends of the moment.
