Even though much of the country is still struggling with frigid temperatures, spring is right around the corner. If you’re ready to start shopping for the latest warm weather trends, start with this guide to the hottest street style and runway looks that have been popping up in 2020 collections, from womens shoes to the latest dresses.
Wide Retro Collars
Called the disco collar by Harper’s Bazaar, this 70s-inspired look last seen at Studio 54 consists of an extra wide collar, with points that may even extend all the way out to the shoulders. The trend gets an update by way of bright, contrasting hues, which is the perfect way to give that boring blouse a makeover. This style showed up on the Spring 2020 runways of designers like Ferragamo, Victoria Beckham and Lanvin.
While 90s neons have been back for a few seasons now, these acid bright shades are normally relegated to a bag, shoes or other small accessories. To update this trend, go for broke with a full-length gown or business suit in an eye-popping green, pink, orange or yellow. Valentino, Christopher Kane and Rei Kawakubo all showed neon workwear and finery for Spring 2020.
Although loafers have long been a style staple, these new models call to mind the preppy chic fashions of the 90s. Shop your favorite online shoe stores for loafers with stacked heels, chain details and other embellishments.
We’re not talking about that puffer vest you throw on as an extra layer when temperatures drop below freezing. These new vests are meant to be worn alone or at most, over a silky cami or sleek shell. Trendspotters are flipping out over the tuxedo vests on the runway at Saint Laurent, denim vests on the shelf at Nordstrom and grandma-inspired houndstooth sleeveless looks at Gucci.
Rather than the bermuda shorts that have ruled the runway in recent years, shorts for Spring 2020 bring back 60s hot pants for fun, flirty appeal. Wear them alone if you dare or over patterned tights, a look showcased by designers that include Chanel. Rag and Bone highlighted denim hot pants while Hermes brought back your terrycloth gym suit.
This style showed up for spring on the runways of Vaquera, Blumarine and Gabriella Hearst. For the most up to the minute look, go for lingerie-inspired looks in soft pinks, whites and nudes. If you’re worried about baring too much, add a blazer or your favorite denim jacket.
While this handcrafted look is most often associated with afghans and patchwork vests, crochet gets a delicate, feminine upgrade for Spring 2020. Shop for looks that mirror the crochet slip dresses and rompers from Jil Sander, Fendi and Marni.
Long white dresses aren’t just for brides anymore. Flowing gowns in the palest hues showed up in collections from Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu and Vivienne Westwood. Eyelet details are especially on trend for the new update to this sweet and sassy look.
From men’s shoes for work and casual dates to sky-high heels to complete an elegant women’s look, shoes are a cornerstone of your spring style. Upgrade with cute sneakers and strappy sandals to make the most of your trendy new wardrobe.
