Already it feels as if 2020 has come and gone, but there are still a few months left of the year and that means that there’s enough time to get out there and embrace this year’s most significant trend.
We’ve had a look around, tracked what’s hot and what’s not – so here are just a few of the hottest trends we see this year.
Neon is back, baby! Like an itch that never goes away neon has made yet another comeback this year. Neutrals had their time to shine, but now a new neutral-neon hybrid has been born. Many trendsetters out there have started accessorising their neutral looks with a neon accessory whether its a bag or a pair of earrings. Neon is timeless!
Sweaters are in fashion! Yes, you heard correctly, sweater vests have taken the runway by storm with their grandpa-chic appearance. Brands such as Gucci have started to produce designer sweater vests. What next?
Polka dots are back again for the second year running. They’re feminine, they’re quirky, and they’re cute as anything. From dresses to trousers to tops, the spots have taken over and make a perfect pattern for any garment and any occasion.
One of the biggest trends of the year is the crochet look. Worn by Rihanna for years, the fashionista is only just catching on. From indie brands to big names such as Topshop and designers like Michael Kors, crochet has worked its way onto the list.
Here are some items that might tickle your fancy and will win you a few compliments…
