Before we dive into 2020, it’s a tradition here at ELLE to take a comprehensive look back at the fashion moments that defined the past year, the trends we bought on repeat (hello, micro bags), and the looks that made their mark (a LOT of Kendall Jenner ensembles). Welcome to our top picks of street style moments that ruled 2019.
So here’s how it works: We assembled a list of the 2019 trends that reigned supreme and the celebrities who successfully pulled it off on the streets. From Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan to Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Ashley Graham, the results of top fashion moments are finally in. Go through our gallery to meet the top street style stars from this year.
The kween of street style, Kareena Kapoor Khan,
did NOT disappoint this year either. Fuss-free, glamorous and functional—Kareena's airport look had it all.
If we could only wear one thing for the rest of our lives, we'd pick these bling-y blue pants from Katrina Kaif's A+ wardrobe.
Not once did Mira Rajput Kapoor and her girl-next-door outfits let us down. We repeat, not even once.
Looking like a dream is so '90s, we want to look like a hallucination (like our girl Alia Bhatt
here) in the new year.
Shoutout to Katie Holmes for finding the perfect way to wear a sweater and jeans in that weird time between summer and fall this year. Oh, and she also gave life to knitted bras with this lewk, kids.
Bottega, leather and bright red hues, this ensemble checked off everything on our list for a statement look.
There was a new boot trend in town this year. And every fashion girl (including Kendall Jenner) styled these leather knee-high boots to perfection.
A fuss-free bralette + joggers and a pair of funky sneakers—that's how Malaika Arora did summer-to-fall dressing this year.
With this look, Ashley Graham didn't just ace maternity style, she also gave us a lesson on monotone dressing.
"These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. One of these days, these boots are gonna walk all over you."—Probably the song that was going through Emily Ratajkowski's mind.
