New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped. Lucky for you, we were on the scene at some amazing runway shows and we have the tea on the trends you will need to rock come Spring/Summer of 2019.


It's safe to say we aren't reinventing the wheel, because many of the trends for next year are already in rotation this season. Everything always comes back in style. No matter the recycled fashions, I am so ecstatic for these styles because they are so fun and vibrant.


From cinematic style to overly feminine pieces, by the end of this article, you'll definitely believe God is a stylish woman.

YELLOW

From daffodil to canary, this hue was extremely popular for many designers. Millenial pink has been the "it" color but you must make way for some neon-ish tones like yellow. You can opt to slay this color for head to toe in a monochromatic look or you can just throw on some yellow shoes for the perfect pop.

STATEMENT HEADGEAR

Headgear is such an essential accessory and the runways were drenched in many printed and structured pieces. What I loved most was the variety in styles, from hijabs to crowns. No matter your choice, you'll look queenly.

INCLUSIVE SWIMWEAR

Chromat

Chromat was one of my favorite collections because it screamed body positivity. The swimwear is just as dope as the message. I couldn't help but scream, "YASSSSS!" for every look in this collection.

PLAID

If you didn't already know, plaid is hella stylish. The 90s inspired trend is simply intriguing because you have so many options to style this pattern.

Son Jung Wan especially brought her A-Game has she unveiled a dramatic collection, filled with boldness matched by minimalism and maximalism; what a way to rejuvenate the season. The floral, neon applique was everything!




ROMANCE

Brandon Maxwell and Lanyu

We can all use more romance in our lives. Designers like Brandon Maxwell and Lanyu have us covered with dreamy silhouettes and colors made perfect for those exquisite nights out.

ATHLEISURE

To be comfortable and to be chic is the ultimate win. Whether you are exercising or serving body, why not look snatched either way?!

FRINGE

Coach 1941, Cushnie, Claudia Li, R13, Tom Ford, Romeo Hunte

This Western inspired trend has had many iterations but it keeps getting better every time. From the look of the runways, in Spring/Summer of 2019 we are going to amp it up with more dramatic embellishments creating a whirlwind of textures.

If you've ever seen the classic African-American film, The Five Heartbeats, you know that the scene when the leading men get their dreams stolen by The (whitewashing, song-stealing) Five Horseman is a real-life tear jerker. Like in any movie based in that time period, it was made abundantly clear that black creatives had gotten the short end of the stick for decades. Before Elvis Presley, Little Richard was the crowned king of Rock & Roll. And before Moschino teamed up with Sephora, Raynell Steward, affectionately known as Supa Cent, created The Crayon Case.

Heading off on vacation can mean more sex for couples or those looking for a getaway love with no strings attached. More than 50 percent of people say they are more likely to be intimate with their bae while on vacation than they are at home, and 12 percent of Americans are down to have a fling when they hit their destination. If you're not booed up or you're taking a trip without your love — that doesn't mean you can't still have a good time.

People often talk about how lonely it is at the top, but what they rarely talk about is how quiet it can be during the climb.

For Nichole Lynel however, it's a feeling she knows all too well. As we chat, the quietness that surrounds her while sitting on the floor awaiting movers to arrive at her old showroom serves only as a reminder of her own entrepreneurial journey. "Everybody is willing to help you when you're the underdog but when you have a chance of really succeeding, it gets a lot quieter," she revealed.

As I stood in a spread-eagle stance with a female TSA agent using the back of her hand to check my crotch for weapons, I thought to myself, What the hell? Even though I know she meant no harm and was only doing her job, my personal space felt violated. Since I had experienced this so many times in the past, I guess I never thought twice about it. Until now.
