5 wearable trends to try in Summer 2020
From cinched in corsets to barely there fabrics – SS20 is about to get risqué.
Summer may feel like a long way off, but the fashion forecast has already been predicted. A peculiar mash up of 80’s colour ways and 30’s silhouettes. Here are some of the key styles you need to know about this season:
You may associate crochet with your granny’s handmade woollen scarf – but that’s all about to change. Kate Spade proves that knitwear doesn’t have to be dull. Try dark lingerie under lightweight floral embroidery for a look your nan might not be proud of.
The puffed sleeve:
Channel your inner Princess Diana, and try the puff sleeve trend. This romantic feature deserves a place in your summer wardrobe with faded denim jeans. Look towards Zimmermann and Erdem this season for inspiration, and style it with Victorian high necklines and floral patterns.
The big bag:
Say goodbye to your mini bag, because this season it really is ‘go big or go home’, as seen at Off-White. Practical dressers will be in their element. A bonus? You get to avoid the dreaded ‘what can you even fit in that bag?’ question at family parties. Choose bold coloured faux leather for a subtle modern take on 80’s fashion.
Feel free to wear your underwear anywhere, as 2020 is all about corsets. At Mugler and Laquan Smith, structured boning and high leg bodysuits gave a flattering sculpt on the figure. Pair the look with low waisted baggy jeans and wet look hair for a fresh out the bedroom look.
The sheer outfit:
Organza fabric flooded the catwalk last season, and it looks like it’s here to stay for good. Take notes from House of Holland and Richard Malone and layer over cobalt polka dots and modest high necks. See-through has never been so wearable.
