Most Wearable Trends from the SS20 Runways
After a seemingly endless month of shows and presentations, the fashion industry has finally concluded showcasing their feelings on how style will transform in the season to come. This season was unique as the thought of “trend” has started to fade to embrace minimalistic and seasonless fashion. Yet, that’s not to say trends are non-existent but certainly less traditional than we what we used to coin the term.
Analyzing catwalk after catwalk, I’ve joined each collection’s nuisances to bring you the most wearable trends of Spring Summer 2020. Lucky for us, they’re even wearable this season! Scroll through to get ahead on that latest and greatest from the runways across the globe.
That Groovy Feelin’
From the runways to the silver screen, it seems everybody has the 70’s on their minds. I can’t argue that a free-spirited mindset sounds pretty damn good within the mess of our society at the moment, am I right? Fashion houses like Fendi, Etro and Celine fully embraced this trend through wallpaper florals, shades of oranges, browns and golden yellows as well as showcasing airy dresses in both mini and maxi silhouettes.
For the Love of Leather
Even though these are traditionally the “Spring/Summer” collections, the seasonless approach to fashion is another way to align with the ever crucial sustainability movement. Leather was shown in its traditional caramel and jet black shades but also ranged to a sweet pink and show-stopping orange like at buzzy Bottega Veneta. Get ready to score leather dresses, renewed jackets and even short suits.
Elements of shine are no longer reserved solely for your evening wardrobe. “Day shine” is playful way to liven up your day-to-day pieces with an unexpected element. Catch this trend in resort-ready wear at Fendi, flirty party dresses at Attico and even suits at Akris. Channel this trend through shots on lurex in a knit, a patent finish or through guilty pleasure sequins.
Back to the Basics
Arguably some of the biggest names in fashion right now (think Prada, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen) put aside the avant-garde for, well, wearable fashion. Demna Gvasalia even noted to the press that this collection was a controversial look at what society is actually like through his lens. This no-trend-trend is a way to update your basics with subtle upgrades and a seasonless approach— a great black blazer never goes out of style, right?
Feminine, sweet yet sultry and absolutely timeless— designers took a look back in time to update silhouettes of past for the modern woman. Utilizing softer versions of corsetting, voluminous sleeves and details drawing attention to the neckline and back, this trend is the epitome of chic. I’m betting big on this influence to stay strong into AW2020 too.
