Are you ready to amp up your wardrobe for summer? From the office to weekends at the shore, your summer wardrobe is bound to be full of big prints, bold colors, and plenty of inspiration. Check out this summer’s biggest fashion trends before your next shopping trip if you want to look like you just stepped off the runway.
1. Suits for All Genders
Suits haven’t been a businessman-only trend for some time, but they still have staying power in 2020. This year’s fresh updates on the classic trend include more tailoring and coordinating than ever before. Vests, waistcoats, and three-piece suits are where it’s at this year. Summertime business casual is a thing, and this year it involves wearing knee-length Bermuda shorts with vests, tailored shirts, and your favorite suit jacket. If you work in a more conservative environment or simply prefer a more traditional look, three-piece suits are excellent for spring. Make them trendier with a patterned vest or by adding a pop of color under traditional hues.
2. Chokers That Leave an Impression
Fashion is taking the phrase “go big or go home” to all new levels this year. Large, statement accessories in the form of chokers are popping up all over the runway. Stick to classic silver or gold pieces for daytime, or go bold by layering studded chokers with pearls and chains for an evening rocker look. Whether you prefer buckles, gemstones, or something in-between, these large pieces pair best with v-necks or other low-cut tops that truly allow your neckline to shine.
3. 70s-Inspired Collars, Colors, and Prints
They say history repeats itself, and fashion trends are no exception. 2020 sees a return of ’70s-inspired clothing, so be on the lookout for bold colors, retro patterns, and bohemian layers on your next shopping trip. Step off the runway and into the office with classic button-down shirts with big collars worn over your suit jacket, or grab a suede vest and floral mini dress for weekend brunch with friends and family. Switch to an evening look by pairing your suede vest with a skirt or dress in the same material or shade.
4. Gold Is Back
Accessories are seeing a return to the 1970s as well. White gold and traditional silver looks have been the talk of the town for the last few years, but jewelers and trendsetters alike are returning to classic gold for 2020. Yellow gold is even taking over the engagement and wedding ring industry again. If you love the classic look and plan to get engaged or married this year, don’t be afraid to try on a classic gold ring for size.
5. Barely There Outfits
When the sun gets hot, the skin starts to show, and 2020’s summer fashion trends are baring it all. Trendsetters and fashion designers are skipping the one-piece swimsuits and traditional tank tops in favor of solid-colored tube tops paired with sarong-style skirts, skin-baring slip dresses, bralettes worn as tops, and some of the shortest shorts to hit the runways in years. If you’ve been keeping up with leg day, you’ll want to try out some of these slinky, sexy styles this summer.
6. Earrings Are Going Solo
When you think of earrings, you imagine a pair, but this year it’s all about showing off your favorite lobe. Single earrings are all the rage in 2020, and the bigger, the better. Giant hoops, animal-inspired designed, and jewel-encrusted earrings that dangle well past the shoulder are a thing this year, but only when you wear them one at a time. You’ll get bonus points in the fashion world if you wear something completely out of the ordinary, too. Think giant paper clip or master lock as an earlobe accessory. If you absolutely must have something in the other ear as well, stick to a small, understated pearl to keep this trend working for you.
Remember, the biggest fashion trend is to make it your own. You don’t need to go all out with every outfit, so don’t be afraid to mix and match or put your own spin on this summer’s big fashion trends.
