Although we’re in the throes of winter and you’re probably snuggling up in your comfy sweaters and thick socks, unsurprisingly the fashion world is already one step ahead of us. Hitting the catwalks last September saw the next wave of trends for the coming year. You might not be thinking about what you’re going to wear for your next vacation, but as soon as Christmas is over, the stores both online and locally will be filled with fashion inspiring your next purchases.
In a few short weeks, the days will thankfully start getting longer again, and we can focus on looking forward to warmer days. Spring might seem like a long way off yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look to next year’s trends to inspire our next season’s wardrobe.
Fortunately, some of these fashion must-haves might already be lurking in your closet from previous seasons. So why not take a look and see how you can revamp your capsule closet to include these stylish additions for 2020.
Crochet has a big of a stereotype, and yes we’re talking about the ones you’re granny used to make. However, for spring 2020, this old-fashioned technique is coming back with a modern twist. Think ultra-sleek dresses, cool suiting, and modern eveningwear vibes. You may even have some older crochet items that can be updated for the new season. This way, it gives you a unique style ready for the warmer weather.
Comfortable streetwear and casuals have been a significant trend in recent years, and it’s not set to go anywhere fast. There’s nothing better than rocking something totally cool and ultimately casj, and it gives you an excuse to wear your sweatpants out in public. For spring/summer 2020, we’ll see more neutral tones enter our closets, and basics take on a light and fresh palette to match the simplicity of the trend. One brand that does streetwear and athleisure vibes perfectly is Neighborhood clothing. You’ll find a mix of cool casuals in denim, leather, wool, and cotton all ready to be styled for the new season.
Forget pastels for spring next year; neon is now in. This trend is not for the faint-hearted and coming straight from the catwalks, bolder is evidently better. Striking maxi dresses in fluorescent colors reigned supreme, and we’ll be seeing a lot of inspiration seeping into everyday collections. Of course, if you don’t want to go all-out fluoro, there’s also the option to add these shades in smaller touches to capture the essence of the trend.
Suits are big business for spring/summer 2020, and if you loved last year’s take on oversized blazers and power trousers, you’re going to adore spring’s twist on the trend. Forget pants and skirts for spring; we’re looking at styling your trusty blazer with some tailored Bermuda shorts. Yes, you heard that right, short suits! Shorts are ideal for the warmer weather and can be vamped up to give you that boardroom to bar style. The simplicity and chic vibes of this look also create the perfect eveningwear options too, and all you need some killer heels to glam it up.
We all saw the craze for this autumn’s leather trouser look. Well for spring, it’s got an update. Color, of course, reigns supreme and next season they’ll be a variety of fashionable separates that will undoubtedly turn heads. Lime green was a favorite on the catwalk, as was oranges, blues, and striking scarlet. Leather featured in lots of different forms throughout fashion week, so we’re probably going to see a lot of it popping up online and in stores in the New Year.
The cutesy vibe of polka dots is always a big hit in the spring/summer months, and next year seems to follow suit. Dots for all sizes will be a feature in fashion, and the range of dresses and separates will give you the option of both casual and formal attire combinations. Polka dots are great for the wedding season too and make a striking wedding guest outfit whether you want to make a style statement or opt for subtle details.
These are some of the top trends for spring/summer 2020. It might be a bit early to start thinking about what you’ll be wearing next year. However, if you’re looking ahead, why not use these trends as inspiration for your 2020 buys. You could also revive some of your older capsule items to include these updated trends.
