Spring Fashion Week 2020 just killed the fashion game.
There you have it, bargainers, New York Fashion Week Spring has ended. Now we get to soak in the new trends we will be seeing in our favorite stores. So long fall clothes, make way for what’ll be our favorite spring wardrobe. And the designers did not disappoint. We asked for some fresh, new trends and that is exactly what they delivered.
The last six days were jam-packed with vibrant hues, bold looks, flashy fabrics, and shapely silhouettes. Look after look of over-the-topness – I know, not a word, but I had to make something up to really define it – that only New York Fashion Week can bring. While the season is not here quite yet and there are still other fashion weeks still to come, there’s no reason why we can’t indulge in what we’ve been given so far.
I will say, a few of my fashion predictions came true. Like always, a lot of inspiration came from years past, floral is set to bloom in spring – pun absolutely intended – and bright colors are taking over.
Now, sit back, get your fast payday loans ready and let me present to you the rest of our spring trends.
Spring Fashion Week 2020 Best Trends
- The all-powerful white suit
While we are used to suits in color or in the classic black, white is making its way to the front of the pack. To really make the white suit stand out, designers took the suit in many ways. Adeam took a nautical spin with big gold buttons, a cinched in waist, and navy-blue heels. Meanwhile, Mara Hoffman took a sultry approach by knotting the jacket in the front.
- Power to the peplum
So, I’ll be completely honest with you fellow bargainers, I just recently learned what a peplum was. For those like me that didn’t know, peplum is “a short, gathered, slightly flared strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman’s blouse, jacket, skirt or dress.” Ulla Johnson used peplum to create a chic, bohemian look in a pastel plaid dress. The peplum gives the dress a cinched-in look at the waist with a long, flowing skirt and sleeves that are puffy at the shoulders and slim toward the wrists.
- Matching from head to handbag
Forget matching from head to toe; let’s take it a step further and match our handbags to our outfits! That is exactly what designers had for Spring 2020. Whether a big over-the-shoulder handbag or a small clutch, they made sure their handbags matched perfectly with their outfits. Michael Kors gave us a nautical feel with a navy-blue blazer, navy-blue two-piece bathing suit, and a navy-blue over-the-shoulder handbag with gold accents.
- Polka dots popping up everywhere
in my opinion, polka dots are the most fun pattern. I just think they give any outfit such playfulness. Marc Jacobs really wanted to evoke that playfulness with a pair of polka dot pants and a frilly crème-colored top hat. Carolina Herrera by Wes Gordon was the epitome of joy during Spring Fashion Week. With multiple polka dot looks, they ranged from giant polka dots covering a mini, flowy black dress, to tiny black polka dots covering a mini white dress with giant black polka dots covering the short sleeves.
- Turning everything black and white
Spring Fashion Week 2020 is causing major changes. Any moment now leopard print will need to move over. Black and white print is here! That’s right, this spring calls for some black and white. Whether polka dots, stripes, or zebra print, this print reigned supreme. Whimsy was the name of the game for Christopher John Rogers. His line included several black and white patterns that perfectly melded style, evening wear, and whimsy all in one. Catherine Holstein’s line Khaite is taking its Americana look and turning up the gaudiness with some black and white checkered patterns thrown in.
- The 80’s are back
Now, like I said in my last blog post, every season we see trends from years past. This season, we are going back to the 80’s. We saw metallic mini dresses, taffeta for days, ruffles, and the ever-iconic broad shoulders. Jeremy Scott’s line – admittedly my favorite – pushed the envelope of sending us back to the 80’s. He described it as “neon rock opera” and boy, does that fit perfectly. Metallic mini dresses, thigh-high boots, crazy colorful wigs, and neon EVERYTHING. Needless to say, I am OBSESSED!
- Neon isn’t going anywhere
So speaking of neon, it is here to stay. As you may recall, fall was all about the neon. Well, neon has decided its gonna stick around for spring 2020. Tom Ford really embraced New York and based his collection on the subways. Think subway street style with a splash of runway. He accented many of his looks with vibrant hues of neon orange in pants, a jacket, and a fully neon orange dress.
- Fringe got a makeover
Now, I’ll be honest, I’m not crazy about fringe. Well, the kind of fringe at NYFW Spring 2020 got an upgrade. We saw sequined fringe that was red-carpet-ready from Christian Siriano and we saw Zimmermann’s fringe adorned with seashells. Gabriela Hearst took fringe a step further by using torn pieces of fabric from her older outfits to create a recycled fringe.
- Americana pride
So apparently, spring 2020 calls for some American Pride. Designers went all Americana at Spring Fashion Week. And I mean full Americana. I’m talking denim outfits from Ulla Johnson, American flag printed jackets from R13, cherry pattern suit from Michael Kors, and even the actual New York City skyline print from Lela Rose. I guess spring is the season of patriotism.
- It’s time to lime
So, every season, we have one specific color that steps in front of the pack. Even in spring 2020, where color is everywhere, there is one color that rises just a little bit higher than the rest. Spring 2020 is all about the lime green. Jonathan Simkhai wanted to evoke a light, dainty, feminine feel with his use of soft lime green on slip dresses and casual suits.
