As a native of Los Angeles, there are a few fashion beliefs that are basically ingrained in my DNA: Denim is essentially a second skin, sandals can be worn all year, and a leather jacket is the warmest type of jacket you'll ever need to own. I've already explained how these beliefs have affected my fashion choices for various reasons, but today, I'm here to use them as predictors of which spring 2020 trends L.A. fashion girls like myself will be into.
While there are dozens of cool spring trends to choose from this year, L.A.'s 70-degree weather and relaxed atmosphere will influence the sartorial choices of its residents. To be completely honest, we may even get to start wearing these before spring officially arrives. From the hair accessory trend that was basically made for a beach day to the top trend begging to be worn with jeans, below are the seven best spring trends I predict L.A. girls will love.
Corsets and boudoir-inspired styles were all over the runways of designers like Mugler and Helmut Lang, and I predict L.A. girls will be all over these pieces. Whether it's a nightgown-like slip dress under a blazer or corset top paired with jeans, the lingerie trend is going to take over for spring 2020.
Suiting has been trending for a few seasons now and shows no signs of slowing down for spring 2020. Since L.A. is sunny and 70-degrees more often than not, it's the skirt and short suit styles that are going to be everywhere come April.
Much like leopard or floral print, polka dots are one of those patterns that fluctuate in popularity but never truly go away. This spring, they're having a major upshift. I think polka dots are the perfect kind of non-print L.A. girls gravitate towards.
Yes, really. Tube tops are making a major comeback in 2020. They still carry an air of nostalgia for the early '00s with them, though instead of pleated skirts or low-rise jeans, L.A. fashion girls of today will be pairing them with cooler pieces like midi slip skirts and high-waisted trousers.
Seventies-style hair scarves are another old-school trend that will be seeing a revival this year, and it's the perfect accessory for L.A. girls. Paired with a simple dress or tank, this bohemian trend will be seen everywhere the first real sunny day of the spring.
Designers like Tom Ford and Peter Pilotto sent models down the runway in high-shine fabric last September, and I was immediately drawn to it. L.A. girls aren't afraid of a little color, and these thin, drapey fabrics are perfect for a 75-degree day in Malibu.
