Trends in the world of fashion seem to come and go very quickly. The rise of one always accompanies the exit of another. Most recently, we’ve noticed the quick revival of retro vintage styles that hail back from the ‘60s through the early 2000s. But, with the overwhelming number of fads coming in and flooding our social media feeds, it can be quite confusing to know which one to hop onto.
But don’t fret! We’ve made it our mission to update you of what’s worth trying, and of course, to give you a rundown of what you’ll love for a long time. As we run past the halfway mark of 2020, here are five trends that you’ll still be seeing all year long.
Featured on the shows of Jacquemus, Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta and many more—these knee-length shorts are actually an ultra chic piece that you can easily dress up or down. Although the design may be quite intimidating at first—since its odd cut can easily cut off petites—it is actually backed with an expansive styling range. Whether you pair it with a casual button down, or turn to modern suiting with a matching blazer, its streamlined and versatile cut gives you a fresher look than your typical denim jeans, and cut-offs.
2. Bra Tops
In a country where summer reigns all year long, we can’t help but choose comfort over style. But lucky for us, we don’t need to choose one over the other. Cute bra tops have recently taken over our feeds, with style stars breaking out their fave bikini tops and turning them into loungewear looks to beat the summer heat. This trend will surely stick around, so be sure to stock up on its different iterations. Try knitted and ribbed bralettes or maybe some linen versions you can easily layer under your favorite blazers.
It’s time to retire our beloved crossbodies, and welcome the return of the sleek ‘90s shoulder bag. Since mid 2019, we’ve been seeing an influx of celebrities and influencers carrying purses tucked underneath their arms. From the rise of the Fendi Baguette, and Prada’s Gaufre Pochette, to the release of Bottega Veneta’s hobo bag, these editions are back into our lives with a more minimalist and clean twist. Hence, if you’re looking for a timeless bag that fits your essentials, and hits the mark on nostalgic fashion, this hands-free option may just be the one for you.
4. Tie Dye
Thanks to its easy DIY method, tie-dye has worked its way up to be one of 2020’s biggest trends. But don’t let its psychedelic playfulness fool you! Since gracing the runways of Dior, Prada, Versace, and more, tie dye pieces are coming in a variety of designs, proving that this DIY fad can be high fashion.
This summer’s lace up sandals have been creating a buzz amongst fashion insiders. For quite some time, it was a fashion week favourite as we’ve seen this footwear being tied over trousers of many influencers. But, with its highly versatile and slinky structure, it can also be paired with feminine-like silhouettes such as mini skirts and flowy dresses. Regardless of which style you choose to pick up, this shoe will surely elevate any of your looks.
