Fashion Trend 2020

I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a big ~planner~, but when it comes to keeping an eye out for upcoming trends, I like to think I’m pretty capable. I mean, I’m the sort of person who plans her fall wardrobe in spring, so you know I’ve already got my eye on what trends we can all expect in the coming months. While, of course, everything is a bit of a guessing game, checking out designer runways can help predict the 2020 fashion trends. (Plus, they’re just fun to peruse for outfit inspiration.) If you haven’t been paying attention to this year’s runway shows, have no fear. I took a good, long look at what designers will be offering in the next year and put together a list of 12 trends we’re likely to see in 2020.

Whether you’re someone who likes to plan their wardrobes months in advance or just like to keep ahead of the trends, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for below. From the runways of Caroline Herrera, Off-White, Miu Miu and more, there are so many trends of which to be aware. Get ready to don some ruffles, polka dots and colorful leather ensembles in 2020. These trends are big, bold and statement-making. 2020 is leaving absolutely no one in the shadows.

Not Your Average Polka Dots—

Think polka dots are for kids and your grandma? Think again. The Spring/Summer 2020 runways were chock-full of elevated polka dots, so prepare your 2020 wardrobes.

Suit Up—

2019 has been the year of the suit, and 2020 will be no different. The runways were filled to the brim with suits, suits and more suits. (I’ve actually never seen so many suits in my damn life.)
