Fashion Trends To Watch Out For in 2020
It’s crazy to think that in a few short months, we’ll be gearing up for the next drop of spring/summer trends. The recent catwalk collections for this coming season have also renewed our excitement for a range of looks as we head into the new year.
So what’s in store for fashion in 2020? Take a look at some of the key trends to watch out for next season.
It might come as no surprise that this season’s big trend in tailoring is making a transition into spring collections. Autumn saw oversized suits and neutral palettes. But spring/summer sees a slightly different vibe with edgier lines and monochrome tones. With a few tweaks and well-placed accessories, this trend is perfect for bossing the boardroom to hitting the bar.
Florals for spring, groundbreaking!
We see florals in spring/summer collections every year, so what makes the SS20 trends any different. This season designers have opted for bold, dramatic vibes rather than sticking to muted pastel palettes. Alongside this vibrancy, silhouettes were exaggerated and voluminous – with Marc Jacobs leading the charge showcasing ruffles and metallic prints as a key design feature.
Trends that speak volumes
If you want your outfit to do the talking this spring, the updated trend in puffy sleeves and playful print will certainly make people stand up and listen. The romantic and somewhat whimsical nature of the style works beautifully against minimalist pieces. Plus if it’s texture and eye-catching lines you’re after this is the perfect look.
The classic white shirt
Most people own a classic white shirt, and if you don’t, you’re missing out. For SS20, this capsule piece is getting a much-needed revamp in not one but several forms. From cropped options to ruching and embellishment, there’s certainly a white shirt ideal for work and play.
Sportswear with a twist
Athleisure and sportswear trends have gained traction over the past few years. However, for spring they’re getting a little update. Minimalist and basics will still be a bit hit, but there are a few classic contenders in the running too. The iconic polo shirt has been repurposed with long-line dress options. Plus, designer Rokh also showed us how to glam it up with a pretty tulle skirt. So really anything goes!
The rise of slow fashion
Fashion has been getting a negative rap of late but let’s not forget there is a host of brands weighing in with sustainable options. From independent labels to larger chain stores, conscious collections will be a significant feature in trends going forward.
Slow fashion this year also shows us that buying investment and capsule pieces offer you the chance to style items for the long haul rather than adding to the ever-growing fast fashion issue.
The fashion forecast for 2020 sees some refreshing twists on the classics and more importantly, a focus on investing in statement pieces that will see you through the year – if not years to come. February also sees the return of the capital’s infamous fashion week, and we’re eager to see what the latter half of 2020 has in store.
