Meet Lisa Aiken, fashion director of Moda Operandi and one of our personal style icons here at Who What Wear. Lisa is championed within the industry for setting trends and spotting new designers like it's no one's business. No, really—if there's a cool new brand or rising trend, she's not only already wearing it but has also edited it into Moda Operandi's shopping selection for all to enjoy. Since we're always looking to Lisa for our next shopping move, we're thrilled she's agreed to join us as a columnist on the site, serving the latest and greatest when it comes to trends, style, and shopping. Today, it is with great honor and excitement that we welcome her as she discusses all the pretty spring 2020 trends she spotted during New York Fashion Week.

Fashion month may have just started, but there are trends already starting to emerge from New York. Here are the four to turn to (right now) and the pieces we recommend investing in to get ahead of the curve.

Romantic Necklines

From daring sweetheart shapes to skin-baring off-the-shoulder, romantic necklines are having a moment. This feminine trend is so much cooler toned down on the bottom—try with baggy trousers or sneakers for the right balance.

We’ve been seeing sheer fabrications with a sheer overlay across multiple silhouettes and styles. From dresses and tops to layering pieces, this is an eveningwear trend that could have daytime potential.

In terms of color for the season, there has been a sea of tropical Skittles tones. From electric blue to lime green and shocking pink, the younger designers, especially, have had fun with their color palette this season.

Skin is still definitely in. While there has been a wave of the naked-back trend going, cutouts are now finding themselves all over dress silhouettes from the waist to the hip to the chest.
