From whimsical fantasy dresses to retro statement collars we have been obsessing over fall/winter 2020 must have trends ever since we first saw them on the runways. Stay on trend with our new-season FW20 must have list.
1. Leather Looks
Leather was hands down one of the biggest trends last season, and its clear to see from FW20's collections that it's not going anywhere. Many heavyweight designers such as; Versace Fendi, and Ferragamo and emerging designers featured leather in their FW20 runway shows. The message from the runway was clear: more is best. The leather trend has moved past the usual pair of pants or the perfect biker jacket and has moved on to full brown and black looks from head to toe.
Fringe has not been seen on the runway for a few seasons. Fringe in the form of embellished dresses, jackets, and separates has become one of the biggest FW20 fashion trends. Flashy by nature, fringed pieces have presence whether they're on the more minimal side or the center of attention.
Yes, bodycon has been seen all over the runway for FW20, however, this is not the same throwback skimpy dresses that dominated the runway in 2010. For FW20, designers across the board ventured into a territory that felt refreshingly new. Officially, bodycon is back, but their are a few limitations. So far, the color palette is limited to monochrome, and the silhouettes are very modern and minimal.
4. 70's Showdown
70's style seems to be a mainstay trend on the runway. Usually this trend comes in the form of bohemia or disco; however, this season, a handful of our favorite designers have been exploring a different side of the decade – realism over parody. Saint Laurent and other major designers featured ’70s-inspired tailoring, retro sweaters were also seen from Prada and Victoria Beckham.
5. Puff Sleeves
The puff sleeve trend started to pop up in Spring 2018. What seemed to be just one season's must have has now been returned each season. sticking around and proving that the puff sleeve is not just a temporary trend. In 2018 the puff sleeve was only seen in Victorian inspired designs with romantic silhouettes but this market has expanded. For FW20 you see designers applying the puff/enlarged sleeves to almost anything with a sleeve.
