We know you’re the one in your friend group that’s the source for style inspiration. And as a result, you’re probably eager to test out the latest trends before everyone else. To get a jump start on what will be everywhere in 2019, we’re here to help you source exactly what looks are worth trying now. Keep scrolling for the top seven trends that will matter in 2019, inspired by some of the coolest street style stars. Consider yourself set to give a full sartorial report to your BFFs in the new year.
Hot Hues: Don't be afraid to embrace color all throughout next year. The simplest way to test out this trend is in the form of bold outerwear in saturated tones like this pink number. Seriously, toss a statement coat over pretty much any outfit and you're destined to turn heads. (Photo via Edward Berthelot/Getty)
Alice + Olivia Kylie Jacket ($440)
Neutral Territory: On the other end of the spectrum, paring it back completely with all-natural tones is also on-trend. Follow Eva Chen's lead here with a beige sweater, mixed with a coordinating printed skirt and knee-high boots for a fashion-forward vibe. (Photo via Edward Berthelot/Getty)
Mango Scarf Neck Sweater ($70)
Biker Girl: We're admittedly on the fence about this one. We've seen the biker shorts trend make waves throughout the street style set in 2018, and the look will continue to hold strong next year. Yes, it can be a lot, but we suggest pairing them with sophisticated separates (like this pretty blouse) to make them more digestible. (Photo via Kirstin Sinclair/Getty)
Strong Shoulders: It seems like the '80s are here to stay. For 2019, make an instant power statement by opting for a blazer with defined shoulders. While this specific ensemble works for the fashion crowd, you can achieve the same silhouette by pairing your jacket with a sleek pair of trousers and boots instead. (Photo via Daniel Zuchnik/Getty)
On the Dot: If there's one pattern that will work its way into heavy rotation next year, it's polka dots. Yep, we're talking the print in all forms, but we're particularly smitten with polka-dot bags as an easy and approachable way to test out the trend. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty)
Birds of a Feather: Get ready to feel fancy, because feather pieces cropped up throughout the biggest runway collections. We, along with the street elite, adore this trend because incorporating the luxe accent into your ensemble instantly elevates your silhouette. If a feather dress or top is too much for you, try a pair of fun earrings instead. (Photo via Matthew Sperzel/Getty)
Flower Power: Florals for spring—groundbreaking, we know. While this print never goes away, it's all about eccentric, statement-making floral-printed dresses, boots, and coats for 2019. (Photo via Melodie Jeng/Getty)
Zara Floral Dress ($70)
