The world of haute couture is often one of extremes – and this year, the pattern-print mash-up and psychedelic tie-back are both back in a big way. From animal prints to faux feathers, the catwalk is seeing some pretty wild action for summer 2019.
So buckle up and consider: many of these designs may seem extreme, but it’s about adapting and adopting the elements that complement your personal style.
Ready? Let’s get our groove on.
The Bermuda short is enjoying a revival in 2019, and this smart ivory two-piece is striking; with pocket-detail and black, tasseled slippers.
Spots make a welcome return to the catwalk this Summer, as do clashing print mash-ups; adding a little individuality everywhere you walk.
Fish-net is eye-catching and graceful, and with a fringe of beaded tassels, this look is sure to get you noticed. A nod to 90s deconstruction beneath a mash-up of neutrality and eclectic styling.
Faux feathers are timelessly elegant in this deep mahogany diamond evening frock; perfect for hot summer evenings in glamorous surroundings.
Ivory feather-tassels and mother-of-pearl silk trousers bring a little sophisticated grace to this Oscar de la Renta evening gown. The single earring is a statement of strength and independence.
OK, so you’re unlikely to wear this to the supermarket, but neon green is big for summer holiday wear. The feather-tassels, fishnet tights, and thigh-high boots inject a little punk attitude to this year’s collections.
Tie-dye is one look that never dies, and this striking print by Marcus Tondo has all the feels for that summer heat.
Lavender is stylishly flowing with this off-the-shoulder evening gown by Georges Chakra. Off-the-shoulder is a look to watch out for in 2019.

These Bermuda shorts are classy in camel. The oversized belt and sparkle jumper feel relaxed and carefree.
For beachwear, this summer, you can’t go wrong with this tie-dye midi skirt in maroon and puce. The over-sized belt clip is perfect for storing your essentials – freeing you up to leave the handbag at home. Much more stylish than a bum-bag.
Turn heads with this fabulous evening piece inspired by the uber-stylish 1920s — asymmetrical, glamorous, timeless, and off-the-shoulder for additional sassiness.
An outfit that embodies the decorative fringe and the pattern mash-up trends of 2019. The layering of the leggings and the strappiness of the mules work to complement the look.
This classically elegant look is smart enough for the office and funky enough for after-work drinks. The pleated skirt shimmers in gold, making this combo a knock-out of accessible glamour.
This full length casual is taking fishnet to a whole different level. Stylish, unfalteringly flattering, and perfectly ventilated for summer, your skin can breathe while you concentrate on turning heads.
This statement piece is feminine and earthy. For sophisticats who like to prowl on the wilder side, these tassels and ethnic beads are what summer in 2019 is all about.
Don’t be safe; be seen. Neons are the flavour of summer this year, and there’s no way you’ll sink into the background with these head-turners. There’s nothing subtle in these outfits; who wants to blend in with the curtains anyway?
If you’re looking for something that little more striking this summer, these layers of lacy fringes project ethereal elegance, with the high waist accentuation found in classic 1920s pieces.
This super-chic off-the-shoulder number epitomises 2019’s glamorous shape. The assymetry accentuates the curve of the figure, providing freedom, elegance, and the projection of confidence.
Animal prints are very summer 2019. This stylish, figure-hugging three-quarter-length is perfectly juxtaposed with the classic look of the Converse footwear. For women who don’t need to try too hard.
