When it comes to earring trends this spring, the bigger the better. We saw hoops in particular come in extra-large, chunky varieties at Proenza Schouler, Sies Marjan, and Balenciaga. It's the easiest way to amp up your basic sweaters this season.

Slip On Heeled Loafers With Your Tights

Classic loafers got a modern update on the spring runways—featuring sartorial twists, such as slingback styles, buckles, textured fabrics, mules, and fun patterns. Wear them with your tights throughout winter and with midi skirts come spring.

Swap Your Black Dress for Polka-Dot Prints

If there's one print that will blow up our feeds come spring, it's unquestionably polka dots. Spotted on frocks all over the runways—from Marc Jacobs to Carolina Herrera—the classic print will be your go-to for work, weddings, weekends, and beyond. Try a polka-dot dress layered over a turtleneck and under an overcoat.

Add a Leather Shacket

Leather separates remain a huge trend in 2020—particularly colorful leather, which was omnipresent on the runways. An easy way to take on the trend is with a trending leather shacket (shirt-jacket hybrid) that you can layer under your overcoat in winter and wear alone in spring.

Add a Waistcoat to Your Suit

Suits are reigning supreme in 2020, but it's the addition of a dapper waistcoat that will give your tailoring a modern look—and it's super easy to slip under your blazer.

Throw All Your Essentials in an Oversize Tote

Extra-large totes were spotted from practically every designer on the runway—allowing us to never leave home again without an extra pair of shoes, magazines, lipsticks, laptop, etc.

Swap Your Dainty Necklace for Chunky Chain Links

The chain-link necklace trend shows no signs of slowing down for 2020. Set your dainty necklaces aside for chunky chain links that will amp up every outfit.

Amp Up Your Jeans With a Statement-Sleeve Blouse

From billowy puff shoulders to voluminous ruffles, the runways got plenty of dramatic sleeve action. The easiest way to incorporate it into your wardrobe right now is to pair an of-the-moment puff sleeve blouse with your jeans.

Cinch Your Waist With a Chain or Rope Belt

An easy way to look entirely on-trend this year is to add a belt. Cinch a metallic chain belt or rope belt over your sweater, blazer, overcoat, or dress. We saw cool belts adding interest and flattering touches to ensembles at Chanel and Celine.

Try a Classic Blue Sweater

While vibrant saffron, scarlet, orange, and aqua shades are also trending hard for spring 2020, Pantone's Color of the Year, Classic Blue, is a much easier shade to pull off in the midst of winter. Dependable and timeless blue hues dominated the catwalks, conveying comfort and ease.

Try Long Shorts With Your Tall Boots

There's no doubt that long shorts are going to be one of spring's biggest trends—seen on practically every major runway. Yes, it's still freezing out, but wear them over tall leather boots to keep you toasty right now. And when spring arrives, sport them with your sandals or sneakers.
