Here we are again. Four weeks, nearly 450 shows and 18(!) memorable Kaia Gerber runway sightings later, the Spring 2019 season has come to a close. Needless to say, it was a lot to take in, but once again we’ve managed to distill a month of incredible fashion down to its 15 most important trends.
Updating your fall boot selection is hard work. After all, these (often leather) numbers usually require a serious monetary commitment. And when we shell out the big bucks, we expect style, comfort and durability in return. In a perfect world, all boots would be as timeless as that moment when we glance at their price tag.

Whilst in search of cold-weather accessories to help keep our extremities warm this winter — that is, until we inevitably lose them, “them” being the accessories, not our fingers, toes, etc. — we were struck by the brand’s ability to imbue its patented cool-girl aesthetic into even the most seemingly humdrum items.

Chiropractors of the world, rejoice. Oversized bags are once again in. Though the micro-bag trend is nowhere near over (see: the rise of fanny packs), several key fashion personalities — Raf Simons, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, Demna Gvasalia, Alessandro Michele, Phoebe Philo — have aligned themselves with the schlepper cause. (What can we say? Fashion tends to operate in extremes.)
We feel it in our gut. This will be the spring/summer (who can even differentiate between seasons anymore?) of the wedge.
It’s been almost two years since millennial pink, aka Tumblr pink, aka that muted rosy shade found on Glossier products and the inside of Mansur Gavriel bags, rose to ubiquity.
When the weather's down in the dumps, trick your brain by wearing happy, pastel clothing. Top things off with an umbrella that shouts "spring" and a PVC overlay that's precipitation — but not admiring-eye — proof.
