Colorful Leather



By now, it's clear that leather looks are a permanent part of the fashion-insider wardrobe, but for spring 2020, we'll be seeing a transition from neutrals to bold colors such as yellow and purple.

Long Shorts


The Style Stalker

We spotted long, Bermuda-style shorts all over the S/S 20 runways, from Chanel to Staud. Fashion insiders have already been wearing them, but we expect the trend to explode next year.

Chain-Strap Heels


The Style Stalker

Anklets have been popular among fashion insiders during past seasons, but now the jewelry has actually become incorporated into shoe styles with cool chain details.

Long, Flowy Dresses


The Style Stalker

Market editor Judith Jones identified long, flowy dresses as a major trend for 2020. They've already taken off in 2019, but there's no doubt that this will be a defining trend in the coming year.



The Style Stalker

We saw three-piece suits everywhere on the runways, from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Marc Jacobs, and whether worn as part of a matching set or styled on their own, vests will be a wardrobe staple this spring.

Oversize Hoops


The Style Stalker

While there are plenty of jewelry trends on the horizon for 2020, oversize hoops are destined to be the most popular. They make a statement but are easy enough to incorporate into looks from day to night.

Heeled Loafers

Sure, loafers and slide versions exploded a few years ago, but now there's a new way to wear them. Heeled styles will replace flat versions and become the go-to shoes for the office.

Lingerie-Inspired Pieces

We'll be seeing a return to the lingerie-inspired elements in clothing across the board, from shape-defining corsets to bustier tops.

Bra Tops



In the same vein as the aforementioned lingerie-inspired pieces, bras will come into full focus as tops instead of concealed underneath clothing.

Next, discover the chic, affordable basics that'll instantly elevate your wardrobe.
