After months of wearing boots to keep your feet warm from chilly wind, spring is finally around the corner. For spring 2019, dad sneaker trend is still going very strong.

The latest trend? Just think Tour de France and you'll have your answer. Bike shorts are the new fashion trend that models and influencers are wearing for the sporting and comfy character on both the catwalks and street. The athletic shorts appeared on a number of spring runways and continue to be a street style favourite, which will only solidify them as a key spring 2019 trend.
Just like bike shorts, after a few seasons, the style has stuck around, proving his power and will last next spring and summer. You'll have your hands free this summer again, handy for trendy hikes or challenging shoppings. Don’t worry if, now you will have enough hands to hold your shopping bags!
ALL THINGS ‘80S
Turns out '80s fashion trends, like puffy sleeves, ruffles, and shoulder pads, are more fashionable that you thought. The decade of wild fashion and dance music still has a stronghold in our culture and in our hearts. Certain trends are making their way back into pop culture: chunky sneakers, tiny sunglasses, and bike shorts are revisited by designers like Versace, Alexander Wang, and Marc Jacobs! Indeed, the '80s re emerged this year and maximalist styles will continue to reign for seasons to come.
The inner child in me can’t contain their excitement for the comeback of these accessories. Although the adult-me won’t be grabbing for the typical girly barrettes, it will be looking for the rhinestone and pearl versions I’ve seen from Chanel or influencer Kerrie Mitchell Burke. Barrettes add a pop of fun and sophistication to your outfits and prove that accessorizing doesn't have to be limited to just jewelry and handbags.
