Sun gloves from Eclipse? Those who like a bit of Vitamin C in their fashion diet will be pleased at the amount of bright orange set to hit the shelves over the next few months. Designers have a tendency to showcase fun, vibrant colours in the spring – which is one reason neon is likely to work well in the early part of this year. But there’s another prominent and somewhat garish colour in town for 2020, in the form of tangerine. “This specific shade of orange works for casualwear, such as shorts and sweaters, but was also a favourite for fancier pieces, such as dresses or ruffled tops,” wrote InStyle’s Samantha Sutton.
Feeling ethereal? You’re in for a treat: spring is looking like boon time for wafty white dresses. Of course, that doesn’t mean your old nightgown will do. At Loewe, delicate Guipure, Chantilly and marguerite lace and Japanese satin were deployed, trimmed with macrame, organdie bows and delicate flowers. “It couldn’t rely on raw seams, but had to rely on precision,” said Jonathan Anderson, of the extreme vision of femininity he presented. Side note: it’s a great season for off-the-peg wedding dresses. Consider this look carefree summer immortalised (so long as you steer clear of children, pets, and red wine).
Before you cover your eyes and cringe at the idea of literally wearing a bra as a top, hear us out. While, yes, we saw many designers such as Loewe and Olivier Theyskens display bras that looked more like contents of a negligee drawer and less like tops, we saw the opposite as well thanks to satin bra tops at Givenchy and kitschy co-ord sets at Maryam Nassir Zadeh. Style yours under a blazer or as a top all of its own. Either way, this is one trend we’re daring you to dabble in this season. Surprise, surprise—suits are still a thing, but we wouldn’t be talking about them in yet another trend guide if they weren’t still just as important. Luckily, there have been a handful of fresh updates to the world of suiting that will relight your fire for all things tailored and coordinated this season. With the addition of vests and waistcoats resulting in the return of three-piece suits, as well as Bermuda shorts for the more casual gal, the sartorial world has proven that when it comes to a well-rounded wardrobe, a good suit is a must. There were certainly many suiting separates styled on the S/S 20 runways, but today, we want to highlight the more literal takes for spring so that you can suit up and shop accordingly.

Let’s discuss some spring 2020 trends in the fashion world. Bra-Top Craze: Crop tops are no longer cutting it—the bra top has officially entered the party. From crochet iterations at Dior and Giambattista Valli to a more daring sheer number at Loewe, bikini dressing comes in all textures and styles. Just add a high-waisted skirt and you’ve got the perfect summer look. Make it ultra feminine by styling a ruffle-embellished bra top with a high-waisted midi skirt, as spotted on the Lanvin runway. Two trends in one? With the bra-top trend being invariably revealing, it is best to pair it more concealing items (unless, of course, you’re on island). Some choice items include long, pleated trousers, Chesterfield coats, and high-waisted anything.
