It doesn’t take much to feel uncomfortable and irritable when it’s hot and sticky outside, which is why it’s so important to shop smart for the summer months.
When I say “shop smart”, I’m talking looser silhouettes, less layers and shorter cuts. And all you need to do is glance at the runway to know that none of these things mean feeling frumpy.
My favorite Spring/Summer 2020 trends
What does my wardrobe look like this season, and why? Here we go…
Who doesn’t love a bold kick of color? If I could, I’d wear head-to-toe neon all the time, but I know that’s not for everyone. Nevertheless, if you’re not afraid to go brighter this season, try adding an accent scarf or bag to your ensemble – or perhaps a neon belt to cinch in an oversized shirt dress. Easy!
The shirt dress
Speaking of shirt dresses, this is my go-to come summer, regardless of what my favorite designers are doing. The shirt dress is an easy-to-pair, versatile style that you can wear to the office, beach or party and still look the part. Whatever you do, choose breathable fabrics like linen, silk, or viscose.
Rich greens are all over the runway this season, with some of the best hues coming from Versace in the form of intricate jungle-inspired prints with careful draping. You could pair anything from the SS20 collection with chocolate brown leather sandals and you’d have an earthy ensemble to die for.
In the 70s, women’s short suits were everywhere, but not for long. However, this season that’s changing thanks to Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham, who’s SS20 collections are all over playful office attire. Don’t think twice: replicate the runway with a pastel short suit in sherbet or bubblegum this season.
Does it really ever go out of style? I don’t think so. And if you’re a fan of denim, this season you should be looking to Celine, who’s boot-cut jeans, denim skirts and worker shirts are second to none.
Chantilly lace, Japanese silk and macramé trims are all features of Loewe’s SS20 collection, which I’ve fallen head over heels for. Oversized silhouettes are peppered with intricate details and embellishments, providing interest to ensembles that are, above all else, perfect for the summer heat.
A final note
There you have it! My favorite Spring/Summer 2020 trends. They are varied, and many are timeless, so there’s no excuse not to invest in at least one or two designer pieces this season.
