WOMEN’S & CHILDREN’S CLUB
By Lauren Jablonski
NY Women’s & Children’s Club fashion showcases
feature the hottest designers and brands in women’s and
children’s apparel and accessories. Below are the hottest
trends to shop for in 2019.
Slogans & Statements
Several brands displayed apparel with strong and
powerful messages painted, printed, embroidered or
glitter inked on. Hip Chick Couture showed off their
blazers with motivational sayings like “Own It” and
“Be Bold” glitter inked on the back. Hi Gorgeous had
more of a DIY approach with positive messages hand
painted onto distressed jeans, jackets, and shirts. There
was also fashionable logo apparel perfect for your mini
me. Blissfully Mine has a white tutu dress with the words
“More Issues Than Vogue” printed on it, paired with a
denim jacket, perfect for springtime. Love Bubby, believes
you’re never too young to make a statement. Their
line of t-shirts contain feminist and political messaging
for little changemakers with a big agenda.
A leather jacket is a timeless trend that will never go
out of style. Since a leather jacket is so versatile, it can
be worn year-round to add a cool and edgy vibe to any
outfi t. The Mauritius Group had leather jackets that
were butter soft in a variety of trending pastel colors
for spring including orange, lavender, and light green.
These are great paired with a summer dress with boots
or strappy sandals. Luxe & Leather by Madonna & Co,
curated a collection of the fi nest leather jackets with edgy
embellishments including rhinestones, fringe, and fur for
a unique touch.
The animal print trend has pounced over to 2019.
Snakeskin, leopard, tiger, and zebra prints are eyecatching
everyday prints that make a statement. Spring
and summertime you’ll see more bright and colorful
animal prints rather than ones found in nature.
Higher-rise jeans with crop tops are trending this year.
Distressed jeans continue to be popular but more
designers have opted for more of a subtle approach.
Patchwork denim is also a hot trend for 2019. Whether
you want to DIY your own jacket or jeans or buy one
already complete, all ages can embrace this fun trend.
Feathers & Fringe
Fringe and feathers are fun way to add embellishment to
an outfi t or accessory. Tasseled accessories, fringe leather
and suede jackets and fringe-trimmed jeans are a great
way to incorporate this trend. Joh Apparel‘s Alexander
Tunic/Dress comes in a neutral ash color and is adorable
with a hat and boots. The fringe details on the sleeves
and side of the dress give it a wild west feel.
Finding feathers is nature’s way of sending messages
from angels or a loved one who has passed on. Rock
and Stone‘s feathers are found in Brooklyn and in the
mountains of New York State, then are brass casted as
a symbol of protection and freedom. This is a fun way
to sport the feather and metallic trend at the same time.
Polka dots are a playful pattern that can be easily
incorporated into everyday looks. Add a colorful polka
dot dress from Unique Vintage or light washed polka
dot jeans into your spring and summer wardrobe, it’s a
great pattern for making a statement.
Checkered Vans slip-ons were designed in the 70s
after they saw that teenage skaters colored the rubber
midsole of their shoe with black pens or a sharpie for a
checkerboard look. Today, checkered fashion has made
its way into the mainstream market, even supermodels
and celebrities have been seen wearing checkerboard
sneakers as part of their street style. While checkered
Vans can cost $50 or more, checkered Blowfi sh sneakers
are more affordable with a price point around $35 dollars.
If you’re looking to stand out this season, the camoufl age
trend is back! This print isn’t just for the military and
hunters anymore, fashionistas are re-embracing the camo
trend. Teen loungewear company, Katie J NYC makes a
terry camo dress and romper, great for sunny days.
All Eyes on You
The third eye was seen in jewelry designs, painted on
jackets and even on bags and other accessories at the
show. Evil Eye Protection Jewelry is perfect for warding
off bad vibes while accessorizing at the same time. Hi
Gorgeous army jacket, with a sequined eye on the back,
is a great way to have protection while being fashionable
and fabulous. Love, Lisa also displayed her rose gold evil
eye collection and a gunmetal evil eye bracelet.
Bundle up this winter with a fabulous faux fur coat.
Celebrities and fashion icons are sporting a socially
conscious faux fur alternative. Joh Apparel makes a
faux fur coat called the Stacy Jacket in black and blush,
it’s made of 100 percent polyester and it’s soft and stylish.
