Our bodies may be bundled up in a billion layers, but our minds are already thinking forward to the trends that will soon be all over our feeds and in our favorite retailers in just a few months' time. Luckily, we don’t have to wait until the end of March to take on some of spring’s biggest trends. Sure, we may pass on the hot pants and bra-and-blazer combos seen on the spring runways for now (or at least until temps hit the high 70s again), but there are plenty of exciting and super-easy trends that we can incorporate into our winter closets to stay ahead of the fashion curve. We’ve unearthed 12 of the best that you can shop right now for under $100. From luxe-looking leather separates to chunky chain-link necklaces and statement sleeves, scroll below for all the easiest way to wear spring 2020’s biggest trends right now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
