Get ready to say "new year, new me," because some new fashion trends are about to hit your closet in a major way. In their annual unveiling of the Pinterest 100 top searches, the inspiration destination is sharing their predictions for the biggest fashion trends for 2019 — and they're really, really good.

With that data, they present a list every year of all the trends that are sure to be huge for the year ahead.

Here, you'll find the eight fashion trends you can expect to see everywhere next year, from your favorite influencers to your BFF. To make it even easier to cop these trends, I did some searching for the items you need to shop to revamp your wardrobe STAT.

Shell Out

Pinterest says, "Hares beware," because slow and steady tortoiseshell prints are about to win the fashion race. With searches up 679 percent, tortoiseshell earrings are about to be a major hit in 2019. Look for sophisticated shapes and silhouettes that look expensive (even on the cheap) and pair them with everything from jeans and a tee to cocktail dresses.
