5 Trends That Will Still Be in Style for at Least Another Year

Whether you’re looking to invest big in designer duds, prefer scoring deals during the end-of-the-year sales, or are simply cleaning out your closet for a fresh start in 2020, it’s helpful to know what trends are on their way out and which have some staying power. Conveniently, today we’re here to focus on the latter, as I recently took some time to think about the current trends I can imagine myself wearing one year from now, and I figured why not share?

Much to my (pleasant) surprise, there were actually quite a few contenders, but there were five in particular that I felt strongly about not giving up. There’s a good chance they’re already in your closet (as they’re heavily represented in mine), but in case they’re not, you can rest assured about buying them at this point in the game. To see, read about, and, of course, shop the five fads that made the cut, just keep scrolling.

Leather

Why would we ever let go of such a luxe-looking trend? Leather everything will only continue to gain steam in the New Year.

Square-Toe Shoes

Boots, pumps, sandals, you name it—any shoe with a square toe is going to look as forward next year as it did in 2019.

Suiting

As long as brands keep reinventing them and fashion girls keep finding new ways to style them, suits and suiting separates are sticking around.

Pearls

It seems that pearl-embellished clothing is just so irresistible that no one is ready to retire it quite yet, and personally, I'm very happy about it.

Animal Prints

The animal-print resurgence isn't ready to go quite yet, so feel free to keep your snake, leopard, and zebra prints in your closet throughout the next year.
