Summer is coming! Here are seven of the top spring and summer 2020 fashion trends and how to wear them, as seen during fashion month.
Welcome to colour-blocking made easy. Pair two neutral shades together for a cool contrast that stands out but restrained enough to wear to the office. To ease into this trend, opt for dual-coloured accessories like a belt or bag to accent your look.
2. The SuitImaxTree
Suiting continues to reign as the ultimate beacon of effortless sophistication. An oversized fit and relaxed tailoring removes any sense of stuffiness. Complete your suit style with a pair of bold frames and a statement clutch.
The humble hair accessory has come a long way from its middle-school roots. With seemingly every texture, colour and size available now, it's not only functional – it's stylish, too. Play around with velvet finishes and gingham patterns for a cheery detail.
4. Bermuda ShortsImaxTree
It's possible – bermuda shorts can be chic. Look for elevated takes this season like pieces in edgy faux leather. Wear them with knee-high boots or a matching blazer à la the street style crowd for an elegant take on this vacay essential.
5. Flower PowerImaxTree
This season's floral offerings come in the form of colourful, kaleidoscopic patterns that positively scream "SPRING!" Lean into this maximalist trend with quirky statement pieces, like elbow-length gloves from Collina Strada.
6. Combat BootsImaxTree
Amongst the sneakers and strappy heels of fashion month, combat boots emerged as the alternative footwear of choice. Go with the tried-and-true classic black, or match it to your outfit for a slightly dressier look.
Don't underestimate the versatility of the vest. It's the ideal piece to weather the transition from cold to slightly less cold, and the layering possibilities are endless. Wear a solid-coloured turtleneck underneath for a foolproof combo or try a puff-sleeve shirt for added drama.
