Neon trend 2019 . . . #neon #neontrend #fashion #moda #spring

A post shared by Coral (@creacionescoral) on

They say fashion always comes back around, and this 80’s trend is definitely one you’ll see this summer. Many celebrity influencers have been seen in the trend; mainly Kim Kardashian wearing her neon pink, fit to perfection dress, made by her husband Kayne West from his Yeezy line. From pink and green to yellow and orange; as long as it looks like a shade of a highlighter, your outfits good to go.

Crochet: the ultimate 70’s dream

Bohemian hippie vibes have already been seen this year at festivals such as Coachella, and they are appearing back in everyone’s wardrobes just in time for summer. From swimwear and beach cover-ups giving a summer aesthetic. To tops, skirts and dresses, being paired with an edgy biker jacket; this trend can really work any way you want.

Tie-dye: sophisticated hippie vibes

Also taking it back to the 60s and 70s, tie-dye is making another come back. As originally seen as a symbol of individuality and creative expression, the ‘re-birth’ of tie-dye is taking a modern twist. Using more sophisticated colour combinations, different materials, and unexpected shapes is some of the ways this trend is evolving for 2019. Whether you like bright colours or not, I’m sure this trend will make an appearance in most people’s wardrobes this summer.

Animal print: it’s here to stay

After making an appearance in autumn/winter 2018, animal print is here to stay throughout the summer. So, good news for you who have already animal print pieces in your wardrobe, as you can bring them back out for the summer. Being able to wear animal print casually through the day or to dress up an outfit on the night, this is a massively varied trend. Any colour from black and white, to neon green and pink, looks so stylish on any animal print. You literally can’t go wrong.

Hair accessories: scrunchies and hair bands

With the unexpected come back of hair accessories, it is giving us these 80s vibes which we are all loving. Whether you already love them or still need convincing, I’m sure you will be embracing it soon. Scrunchies in every colour and pattern will give your hair a minimalist, simple finish. With short hair or long, an elegant hairband will look stunning with almost any outfit. Also, silk scarves are making an appearance in many hair styles. Tied around a ponytail or on top of your head, this statement scarf will give any look a fashionable edge.

Let us know what you'll be wearing this summer in the comments.
