Good Wednesday stylers! With fashion month in full swing and spring collections trickling into stores, there’s no time like the present to get informed on what the must-have S/S 2020 trends will be. There are hundreds of runway shows each season, and I certainly don’t expect you to go digging through them all. That’s what we’re here for.
This S/S 2020 season is one I’m excited about, and I know my fashion lovers will be too. Designers gifted us with collections that were the perfect marriage of wearable and innovative. These trends are the ones that are the most digestible and the ones I’m predicting that will be the heavy hitters all season.
You’re probably familiar with the slip dress and bustier tops, but this season, lingerie is taking center stage in the ready-to-wear world. Lingerie dressing is going way beyond the confines of the bedroom as traditional lingerie detailing such as hook and eye clasps, boning, garters, sheer paneling, tons of silks, lace, corsetry, and much more have worked their way into some of the most prominent spring collections.
Besides, lingerie-inspired pieces, Satin is back. Designers incorporated the high-shine fabric in almost everything from suits to dresses, and separates. So if you want to go corporate with your look, prefer something slinkier, or would rather a happy medium, there’s optiosn to make the trend your own and in any color your heart desires.
It’s common for a particular decade to surface as the major inspiration behind a collection, but when you see most of your fav designers sending out models that look like they just stepped out of an episode of That ’70s Show, I knew something’s up. What now feels almost a tad necessary among the ongoing rise of simpler bourgeois dressing is the colorful stark contrast of mod prints, bohemian layers, and retro accessories straight out of the ’70s. Speaking of inspiration from the past, there is just so much to love about the return of the tube top. Aside from the ’90s nostalgia and minimalistic nature of the trend the tube top is also a breeze to style and can be worn in any season.
Whether there’s an actual trip in the future or just chilling around the city, thanks to this particular spring and summer trend, you’ll at least be able to dress like you’re headed on the tropical vacation of a lifetime with nature and fruit-inspired prints. Channel your inner J.Lo or go more casual with a matching set. Either way, feel the island breeze and try not to notice that it’s just air coming from the AC.
