The F/W ’19 runways might seem like a distant memory. We don’t blame you for forgetting. After all, that fashion season happened months earlier.
To refresh your memory and prime you for what’s heading to our stores, we’ve rounded up five F/W ’19 trends that you can easily pull off in Singapore. Best of all, you can rock them in the workplace and on the weekends too.
Strong, striking colours were all across the F/W ’19 runways, ensuring that this fashion season would be anything but drab. From Kenzo and Issey Miyake to Saint Laurent and Balenciaga, every colour in the rainbow was accounted for.
As evidenced by the runways, don’t expect the neon trend to die down anytime soon. So if you beat it, join it — with this Sies Marjan merino wool turtleneck sweater. Pair it with spiffy trousers for work and casual denim for the weekends.
Featuring puffed sleeves and a sexy plunging necklines, this sassy Zara red dress will have you looking fierce and stylish to conquer the boardroom and the bar. Throw on a pair of barely there sandals to complete the look.
The female form of the season is one that’s snatched around the waist with a belt. From chunky, statement belts in Sacai, dainty, understated iterations used in Hermes to unique, contemporary shapes created by Virgil Abloh’s Off-White, take your pick and choose your poison.
For days when you’re going for a sleek look, a thinner belt should be your accessory of choice. We love this Gucci design for its cool, boxy G buckle that differs from the usual rounded alphabet iteration. Play up the sharp lines with a tailored pantsuit.
In fashion, one of the worst sins you can commit is to be static and unchanging. So don’t be stuck in your ways and always depend on the usual leather belt. Opt instead for a metal alternative such as this chain number from Topshop.
Florals might be a staple for the brighter S/S months, but the runways have dictated that this F/W season feature its fair share of the blooming glories. Think floral prints made with deeper, darker colours. Alexander McQueen, Dries van Noten and Prada were some of the houses that had channeled the mystery of night blooming flowers.
With flouncy accents and ruffled details, this poppy printed Jason Wu dress is the perfect number to impress the in-laws or attend a garden wedding with. Dress it with a pair of open-toe pumps.

Featuring a thigh high slit and a sexy plunge neckline, wear this Mango floral sundress on a date and it will leave your partner wanting more. Go with messy, tousled hair and leather boots for a rocker chick look.
Tartan prints of varying sizes and colours were another key feature of F/W ’19. Maria Grazia Chiuri of Dior went simply with the classic tartan colours of black and white, green and red. Rei Kawakuno’s Comme Des Garcons on the other hand, made a statement showing with yellow while Pringle of Scotland impressed with a playful mix of patterns.
We can’t discuss tartan without mentioning Burberry. The iconic house print is transformed into a slouchy collar shirt that screams andryognous chic. Layer it over a white t-shirt or french tuck it for a smart casual finish.
Tartan need not be frumpy and boring. Here, Pomelo Fashion adds its own twist with this playful orange rendition. Go monochromatic with an orange top or let the skirt pop against a black shirt.

Part jewellery and part handbag, chain straps are back. Carolina Herrera, Altuzarra and Chloe were some labels that put out bags embellished with metal chains. Go with thinner links for a more sophisticated finish or chunky chains for a grungy edge.
Made with croc effect embossed leather, this stunning Chloe Aby bag will become your new staple handbag. Its classic boxy design is accentuated with metal hardware that impart both a timeless yet contemporary look.
Itty-bitty mini bags are another F/W ’19 trend. So if you’re looking to slay a couple of trends in one, this adorable Charles & Keith mini bag beckons your name. This is definitely a bag you’ll want to feature in your #ootds.
