What’s haute in 2020


- JAGUAR F-TYPE -spot_img

We’ve seen a bunch of trends emerge in 2019—’90s fashion, the comeback (unfortunately) of the chunky “daddy” sneakers, biker shorts, mini bags, and the domination of high-end streetwear. It’s time to rejoice, because 2020 is all about reinvented classics and all-out glamor. Read our trend forecast and get ready to invest in wearable, sophisticated, and ageless styles.

1. Conscious couture

Luxury fashion may at times be excessive, but designers are using couture as a visual reminder to think of the environment and climate change. With flora and fauna references, this year’s prints showcase the beauty of nature, while the upcycling of fabrics is also widely observed. Thanks to Prada, we’re looking forward to seeing more luxury brands committing to sustainability this year—we hope.

2. Power puff

The romance is still on as the puffy sleeves remain big this 2020. Whether as accents to minimalist silhouettes or added drama to maximalist frocks, these sculptural, voluminous details up the ante for daytime or formal dressing.

3. Made by hand

Artisanal and handcrafted motifs took the spotlight at the Spring/Summer 2020 runways. Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton paid homage to traditional Irish weaving, while Isabel Marant presented crochet knits inspired by the tropics. This year’s pièces de résistance are those painstakingly made by hand.

4. Suited for you

Suiting maintains its strength season after season. It’s time to say goodbye to relaxed, boyish silhouettes and sharp shoulders! Today’s suits are long and lean with perfect-fitting jackets and flared trousers that flatter the female form.  

If you’re more of a femme fatale, worry not because edgier variants are also welcome. Cutouts and coquettish details paired with tailored suits give a modern spin to the boardroom staple.

5. Neutral side

White, black, brown—any hue on the neutral color spectrum is one to don this year. Head-to-toe black is everything but boring and made apt for summer. Try a full-on camel ensemble and make sure to wear a crisp white shirt—it’s the season’s “it” piece, decked with bows, embellishments, and even feathers!

6. Go glitter

This season’s glam gets an understated treatment by fusing shine with minimalist silhouettes. Clothes are more forgiving, with loose lines and boxier shapes, but still completely dipped in sequins for maximum impact. High-shine numbers are pretty in the daylight, just don’t forget to keep everything else minimal.

7. Florals, of course

Florals for spring may not be groundbreaking, but designers made sure they bloomed in a big way this year. 2020’s petals are planted through prints, embellishments, and embroidery. They’re all over the runways! Dresses, separates, and even suits were strewn with flowers.
