5 Fashion Trends for 2019 You Can Shop Right Now
For many of us, 2018 was a doozy, but we here at Brit + Co are ready to hit refresh in 2019! Follow our Hit Refresh series through January and February for new ideas, hacks, and skills that will help you achieve (and maintain!) those New Year’s resolutions.
As we leave 2018, we're pretty pumped for all the brand-spankin'-new fashion that's to come in the new year. 'Cuz the best part about hitting refresh on your wardrobe is racking up the style points, amirite? While there may be certain fads that refuse to die (cough, ugly sneakers, cough), you can rest easy knowing there's a fresh crop of fashion buys just waiting to hit your closet. Swipe through for the five fashion trends for 2019 that are already in stores and ready to be purchased. Pssst: We're telling you now, so that you can get ahead of the pack.
Bike Shorts: Biker shorts, cycling pants — call 'em whatever you want. Just know that this polarizing street-turned-runway trend (as spotted at Chanel and Fendi) is sticking around for spring. Put them to work with an oversized rainbow knit sweater or channel Princess Diana with a slouchy sweatshirt, tube socks, and dad trainers. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)
Fleur du Mal Knit Bike Shorts ($295): Get ready for these hot pink knit bike shorts to accompany you from barre to brunch.
Onzie High-Rise Bike Short ($56): Trying, but not trying too hard is the vibe of the weekend. Teeny-tiny Matrix shades may be required.
Fluoro Brights: If Tibi and Prabal Gurung's spring collections are any indication, then your future is looking very bright. Make a loud and proud entrance this winter with a fluorescent pink topper or anchor an all-black ensemble with just a hint of neon — as exhibited by this off-duty model.

J.Crew Collection Full-Length Wide-Leg Pant in Satin Crepe ($158): Yup, these wide-leg pants from J.Crew — peep the Living Coral shade — are just as dreamy and CEO-approved as they look.
Wandler Anna Two-Tone Neon Leather Belt Bag ($595): Cinch this neon-green belt bag around a glen plaid blazer for a Cher Horowitz spin.
Puffy Outerwear: Behold, a trend that's not only practical (hellooo, single-digit commutes) but also totally stop-and-stare-worthy. We think this influencer got the memo with a green padded gingham coat and matchy-matchy shorts. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)
Moschino x H&M Short Padded Jacket ($199): Cropped and ready to mingle, this extra AF red padded jacket encapsulates everything that we love about the '90s.
Rachel Antonoff Peggy Puffer in Jade ($398): Fancy that! This jade velvet puffer has arrived just in time for NYE.
Tie-dye: Going hand in hand with your beloved acid wash jeans from the '90s, tie-dye 2.0 will have you tapping your inner haute hippie this spring. Less Coachella and more California-cool, the psychedelic print is looking all grown up this season. (Photo via Matthew Sperzel/Getty)
Free People Dippy Anklet ($12): Ease into the multi-colored madness with an anklet sock and chunky sneakers.
Topshop Tie Dye Satin Bias Midi Skirt ($68): Who said tie-dye had to be reserved for the weekend anyway? Team this satin midi skirt with a mock-neck sweater and ankle booties for a swift after-hours update.
Cardigans: Once relegated to granny status, cardigans have never been more in vogue. And we have fashion mavens like Leandra Medine to thank for that. She teams the season's pièce de résistance alongside a black blazer, ankle-slit trousers, and clogs for a defining lewk. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)
Kate Spade Embellished Cable Cardigan ($328): This slightly shrunken cable-knit cardigan featuring bejeweled buttons calls for a frilly collar.
Kule The Greyson Navy Cardigan ($348): You'll be the cool kid on the block with this OG style grandpa cardigan on standby.
