style crop: 2019 trends

i like a good subtle trend, one that once I see it I know that’s the new thing.

There’s nothing like the adrenaline that spikes when I see something fresh in fashion that has that effortless cool feeling - but I always make sure I see it meshing well with my wardrobe for years. There’s some pieces you see playing well over the course of the 70s to the 00s so I stick to pieces that have serious staying power. That’s also why I love vintage - the pieces people love are tried and true, plus less waste for the environment.

These are the trends I’m seeing pop up and ones I’ll be wearing on a weekly basis. Some are once the spring weather hits, but also I live in LA so it’s kind of whenever I feel like it.

#1: Playful, sassy prints (often fruits) - the more quirky, the better.
