And not just the dressing up part but also keeping up with the latest trends that are circling the fashion sphere.

However, some of the new trends that have been predicted for 2019 include tie and dye – yes! The colorful print may be making a comeback, as well as neon which is slowly creeping back into the fashion streets. With time, we will get to see what trends pop up, thanks to the fashion week events of the year.
