Spring Trends for 2020

Yippie—Spring is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about our Spring wardrobes. If you didn’t really pay much attention to the 2019 runway shows for Spring/Summer 2020, have no fear. I took a good, long look at what designers will be offering this season and put together what I believe will inspire and set you straight on all the right Spring trends for 2020.

This season there are so many big and bold statements, there’s no doubt in my mind that there is something for everyone to LOVE. Get ready to don hot shorts, Bermuda shorts, polka dots, colorful leather ensembles and lots of other fun trends. It’s going to be an exciting season for fashion!

Here’s a glance of Spring’s trends for 2020:

Spring Leather:

Leather continues to be a big trend for Spring with designers showing us that this fabric is not only reserved for colder months. Get ready for a variety of hues from dark green to cream in the form of matching skirts and tops, dresses, and jackets.

Bermuda Shorts:

While short-hot pants will be huge this Spring, so will longer Bermuda shorts (and I say thank goodness because they are a tad more wearable). They were everywhere on the runways. Shown with everything from matching blazers to pairing with blouses and camis. Bermuda shorts are flattering for all body types including petite women. If you are petite, stick with solid colored shorts that hit just above the knee and always wear them with a heel to elongate your legs.

Hot Shorts/Pants:

Hot pants staged a comeback on the Spring 2020 runways. If you like itty-bitty shorts or denim cutoffs, this is your season. If the look is too risky for you during early Spring, then take inspiration from the Chanel runway and style a pair of black tights under black shorts. Who wears shorts shorts? Many will be!

Retro Prints:

Yes, think back to your Grandmother’s wallpaper. Prints from the ’60s and ’70s are back in full force for Spring and Summer that will feature oversized florals and psychedelic colors. Sure, florals for spring may not be groundbreaking, but this season’s take on the print feels really refreshing. Get ready to see groovy cuts (think kick-flare pants, boho maxi dresses, and mod-like miniskirts) and ’70s era-inspired prints in larger-than-life abstract florals.

Polka Dots:

Just about every designer this Spring is showing polka dots. Polka dots are here to stay and are undeniably a statement piece. For those of you not daring enough to wear this trend head-to-toe, opt to wear polka-dot pants, blouses, or shorts and pair them with a neutral color like black, white, or beige. You can also enjoy this trend by incorporating polka- dot accessories to your outfit (i.e., handbags, shoes, headbands).

Waistcoats where all over spring runways worn as part of a three-piece suit, mismatched with a jacket, or simply thrown over a blouse and skirt. For warmer months, the waistcoat looks extremely stylish worn on its own. Don’t be surprised if you see this trend carry into fall and winter.

Big Bags:

It’s time to make room in your closet for the larger-than-life bags. For those of you who prefer practicality over aesthetics, this is your season! Yes, you can retire those micro it-bags that didn’t fit anything in them. When it comes to bags this season, think BIG! – go for extra-large totes and oversized cross-body bags and clutches. This Spring there are going to be a lot of happy women who will finally enjoy the space to carry everything!

Crochet is getting a real cool update this Spring! Think chic and modern with feminine dresses, polished suiting, and evening wear that is far from your grandmother’s handmade crochet. This is a trend that is sustainable because it embraces a slow, handmade technique that can be passed down generation after generation.

This ’80s trend continues to be strong for Spring 2020. All the highlighter-inspired neons (pink, orange, blue, green and yellow) graced many of the runways for Spring. If wearing head-to-toe neon is too much of a statement, try any of these vibrant colors with black, white, or tan for the right amount of boldness.
