If you’re looking to breathe new life into your sweatpant outfits, try tucking them into a pair of tall boots. I’ll personally be trying this out the next time I’m at the airport.

Half-Zip Sweaters

Half-zip sweaters are the cool knitwear staple every fashion girl is wearing right now, including Who What Wear market editor Nicole Eshaghpour.

Platform Boots

Chunky platform boots are absolutely everywhere on the streets of NYC right now. Whether paired with jeans or a long printed dress, they’re surprisingly versatile.

Puffy Sleeves

Here’s a trend for anyone with a romantic core. Puffy sleeves for the win.

Two-Tone Pieces

I have a hunch that two-tone pieces will explode in 2020. While there is already plenty of cool market, it’s also been trickling onto recent runways like Chanel, so it will have serious staying power.

Oversize Suiting
