The year 2018 was filled with incredibly stylish fashion trends. We've seen them all: accessories decorated with a flirty fringe, everlasting sequins on party dresses, decorated with elaborate embroidery sleeves, and, love them or hate them, even animal print boots. But the new 2019 year is going to bring us even wider fashion horizons. So, here is a look at some of the winter's hottest fashion trends.

Start building your wardrobe around these edgy and rebellious alt fashion trends, because some of them are going to stay with us till the end of the year.

  • Red Coats

It is not easy to stay warm and stylish at the same time, but everything is possible with a red coat trend. Shades of delicious red color were seen in almost every runway collection this fashion season. But hot red coats are going to be one of the biggest trends of the winter 2019 season. Floor-length, medium, or short coat  choose the one you like the most and stay warm and sexy this winter.

  • Modest Fashion

A theologian Douglas Wilson once said: that modest and attractive is an art form; and fashion designers Derek Lam and Giambattista Valli proved this statement once again, dressing their models in charming long dresses and layering over cardigans. Dressing humble and rebelliously might be challenging, so only a real fashionista with exceptional taste can solve the puzzle. And, in my opinion, this makes a fashion game even more interesting!

  • Lingerie Dressing

One of the most daring and scandalous fashion styles makes a huge comeback for the winter 2018 season. And yes, I'm talking about my favorite lingerie-as-an-everyday-wear style, which became insanely popular over the past few years. 

“Lingerie is so closely connected to the body that blurring the lines between innerwear and outerwear is a sign of confidence and the freedom to express how you feel,” states a creative director of La Perla, Julia Haart. We all want to feel comfy and warm in winter, but how can you say no to these gorgeous see-through ruffles and laces?

  • Eclectic Floral Prints

Colorful floral motives appear almost in every new collection, coming back in fashion with a new wave of diversity. These flowers can easily take over our winter wardrobes because we all want and need refreshing spring blooms during cold times. Don't be afraid to incorporate flirty buds and petals in your outfit or even place floral embellishments on your shoes and accessories.

  • Animal Print

Animal print is one of the most controversial trends in the fashion world. Not surprising, because animal print clothing is very hard to wear and style. But winter 2019 is an ideal time to rediscover your passion for animal print trends. 

Reach out for your favorite cheetah skirt and boots and get ready to style them in a totally new way. Draw some inspiration from the latest Elie Saab's and Redemption runway collections  zebra stripes, snake-skin print, and cow spots  is your alternative wardrobe ready for this wilderness?

  • Sheer Fabrics

Romantic see-through fabrics were trendy throughout the whole eighteenth century in Europe and they often recur on modern runway shows. The winter/spring 2019 fashion season is not going to be exceptional, demonstrating the most feminine sheer outfits and accessories. Flowing see-through fabrics aren't easy to pull off, so you can always opt out of full transparency and layer a sheer dress over a simple t-shirt and jeans.

  • Nude Fashion

Another bold and edgy winter 2019 fashion trend is a nude color. Calming shades of blushing pink, coffee late, and beige always look elegant and versatile in any outfit. A huge part of Chloe's SS19  PrĂȘt-Ă -Porter collection was made in pastel shades of nude and earthy colors. And the entire Christian Dior haute couture collection featured black and nude pieces. I'm excited to see more and more paste nude and beige color palettes on the streets.

  • Sleek Leather

And the last, but not the last winter fashion trend we are going to look at is sleek leather. You don't have to buy real leather to look fashionable this winter, faux PU leather looks just as awesome as a real material and no animals were harmed. I have an awesome waist corset belt, made of this material and it is super comfy and cute. Colorful leather coats, trousers, and skirts were seen at Hermes and Celine's SS19 fashion shows.
