Spring Fashion Trends 2019 – (with Mzansi Instagram Looks)

From the streets of Paris to New York fashion week we’ve watched the looks unfold and I’m excited to share the hot fashion trends that are about to hit Mzansi this spring. This season explores patterns and colour like never before and I would be bold as to say that spring/summer fashion 2019 is definitely African inspired.

Yellow

Yellow is by far the colour of the season. Being a colour that signifies freshness, sunshine, joy and happiness, yellow is without a doubt spring ‘hue-manised’.

Does she actually wear those outfits in ‘real’ life? That is a question I’m sure we’ve all asked at some point while scrolling down our Instagram feed.
