Spring is coming, and before long the flowers will be blossoming and the sun will be shining. If you’re like me, you will be keeping a close eye on the latest fashion trends for spring 2020. To help you out, here’s a quick list I compiled:
A Beautiful Lace Dress
Lace dresses have shown themselves to be a remarkably versatile trend this year. At one extreme we find the elaborate, decorative lace dresses designed to evoke the household doily, an aesthetic as nostalgic as it is eye-catching. At the subtler end of the spectrum there are the simple slip dresses that use lace in a more straightforward way, adding a touch of detail to an otherwise understated dress. Somewhere between the two, you can find beautiful Italian-made lace dresses made by Twinset, which balance elaborate designs with a subtle feel overall. With lace dresses for every taste, this is an item no woman should be without come spring 2020.
Silk Shorts and Top Set
Glossy fabrics are set to be a new trend, and you can get in on the fashion with an ensemble consisting of silk shorts and top. The great thing about this look is how it can be adapted: it can be worn as casual wear for lounging around the home, or it can be worn as an attractively straightforward look while out on the town. It can be modest and skin-covering, or it can be used to show some of your figure (a number of models on the catwalk have been sporting bras with no tops). It also works in a number of colours, although subtler hues such as sky blue and lavender tend to work best.
Pinstripe Jacket and Pants
Pinstripes have long been a staple of menswear, but one trend for spring 2020 sees them being adapted for feminine dress. This is a fashion that bridged the gap between formal business-wear and trendy street clothes, the sort of contrast where exciting combinations are just waiting to be found!
Open Toed Mules
As the warmer months draw in, shoes that leave room for your feet to breathe will be a popular choice, and the more stylish, the better! This spring you can count on open-toed mules being a fashion staple, as they are appealing and comfortable shoes that can be worked into a variety of ensembles.
They may not have the most glamorous name, but bucket bags are a great accessory. They are designed to be spacious without losing visual appeal, and so are just the thing if you tend to carry a number of items with you that you’re not sure how to work into your wardrobe style.
Skinny Chain Belts
Finally, we have the skinny chain belt. These are not the most useful belts to wear for practice purposes, but they certainly add a touch of understated style and are simple enough to fit into a wide variety of different outfits.
And there we have it: now you know some of the hottest fashion trends for spring 2020. Why not get an early start at working them into your wardrobe? Next time you hit the streets, people will be mistaking you for a model or fashion influencer!
