These Are the Trends That Fashion's Early Adopters Will Be Wearing Now

With fashion month behind us, now is the time to do what we do best—discern and dissect which trends will be most impactful in spring 2020. But here's the thing: We fashion people are impatient. And let's be honest, we're probably not going to hold out all the way until spring to jump on some of the coolest new styles we spotted on the runways. So today we’re sharing the biggest S/S 20 trends that fashion girls can start wearing right now. While bra tops, hot pants, crochet, and '90s naked dresses had a huge presence on the spring runways (and will no doubt be high up on our wish lists when the weather gets warmer), the seven trends below are styles that we can easily add into our fall and winter wardrobes right now (just add layers). From '60s wallpaper prints to heeled loafers (they’re back) and Bermuda shorts, scroll below as we share the biggest S/S 20 trends to buy right now. Here’s to what’s next in fashion.

1. Colorful Leather

Leather continues its domination into spring with designers proving that the trending fabric is not reserved for colder months. The supple material was spotted in all different hues from dark green to cream in the form of matching skirts and tops, maxi dresses, and jackets.

2. Waistcoats

Whether worn as part of a three-piece suit, mismatched with a jacket, or simply thrown over a white blouse and skirt, vests were all over the spring runways, adding a dapper and flattering touch to every look. Bonus: They're a great addition to your fall wardrobe and provide an extra layer of warmth and polish to your work suit.

3. Bermuda Shorts

While shorter-than-short hot pants are set to be everywhere by spring 2020 (thanks to the likes of Hermès, Chanel, and Ferragamo), longer Bermuda shorts are a tad more wearable right now. They had a huge presence on the spring runways, from Bottega Veneta to Givenchy, putting a new twist on the classic suit. Move over, bike shorts. There's a new style in town.

7. Big Bags

Move over teeny-tiny purses; spring is the season of larger-than-life bags. Go for colorful totes folded under your arm as seen at Lacoste, or wear a neutral tote across your body like at Bottega Veneta. Either way, you'll finally have space for your spare pair of shoes.
