In Kenya, most people are moving away from most of the 2018 fashion trends such as cold shoulders, exaggerated sleeves and dungaree jeans and oh, chokers!

Here are some of the 2019 fashion trends to watch out for:

PALAZZO PANTS

If you are a fashionista and don’t have this in your wardrobe, you are missing out! Palazzo pants are loosely cut, making it comfortable enough to swirl around as you walk. They are available in different patterns and colours. Also, you can rock them as both official or casual wear.

SIDE SLIT MAXI ANKARA

From Kim Kardashian to Rihanna, the African wax print is a fashion trend that even Hollywood celebrities cannot ignore.

Over the years, Ankara has been a representation of “what’s African” in many runways. It has evolved over the years and every year, there is a new way to wear them.

Towards the end of 2018, the maxi design with a side slit that reveals part of the thighs was birthed. It’s a perfect casual wear for that sunny day when attending a wedding or a party.
