Chunky Chain-Link Necklace
Chain link necklaces are here to stay in 2020. Large links were omnipresent on the spring 2020 runways in both silver and gold. It makes for an easy and super-stylish gift.

The overarching message for 2020's puff-sleeve trend is the bigger the better. OTT bold shoulders are feminine, romantic, super empowering, and most importantly fun! Opt for a pretty puff-sleeve blouse to wear with your high-waisted jeans.

Heeled loafers took a little break last year, but they're back in all their classic and preppy glory for 2020. Wear them in cool textures such as mock croc or patent leather and with chic hardware details.

There were so many cool bralette looks (and lingerie pieces) on the S/S 20 runways, and while it may be a little exposed to wear alone, why not try one over a chic cashmere cardigan à la Katie Holmes?

From Bottega Veneta to JW Anderson and Sies Marjan, seriously pretty sling silhouettes were draped across the body on the S/S 20 runways, and we're predicting will be one of the It bags of the season.

I know what you're thinking—how can we possibly be thinking of shorts when it's freezing out? Well the nice thing is about next year's Bermuda shorts trend is that you can wear them right now—they're slightly longer in length and with a wider, more relaxed silhouette, so all you need to do is add over-the-knee leather boots for a cool-girl touch.

If you're a fan of the classic polka dot, then you're in luck because the dotty trend is going to be huge for 2020. Seen all over the spring runways on dresses, tops, and skirts—it's time get in on the spotty action.

Not what you'd find in your grandma's jewelry box—pearl jewelry in 2020 is sleek and modern—from dainty asymmetrical sets to pearl ear cuffs and sculptural silhouettes. (And they make for the most beautiful holiday gifts!).
It's time to add a dapper touch to your wardrobe. Next year will unquestionably see the rise of the waistcoat, either worn as part of a three-piece-suit (chic!) or mismatched with a midi-skirt and blouse. Instagram it before everyone else does!

The coolest new dress style to wear next spring and summer? Long, billowy, trapeze-like frocks that hang loosely from the collarbone to calf. Pair with combat boots in winter and strappy sandals when it becomes warm again.
