Spring 2020 Trends, A Look Ahead in Fashion

Floral prints, puff sleeves and mixing patterns and prints were among the spring 2020 trends seen on fashion runways. Knowing the trends-to-come isn’t just useful for resort season fashion. You can get a jump on things by getting on-trend clothing for the upcoming spring and summer months at a discount as retailers clear their inventory. Plus what fun it is to look at the new designs from fashion week runways that will inevitably reverberate to main street/high street fashion.

Collectively, the looks from the fashion designers ranged from clothing inspired by the past to designs that had a forward-looking, futuristic vibe.

Some collections featured leg-of-mutton and puff sleeves and the voluminous skirt silhouettes of the 19th century or looks inspired by the 1960’s, 70’s and ’80’s.

Other collections anchored the aesthetic in the present with geometric, minimal, and modern clean lines while some designs looked ahead with garments constructed from fabric that had a metallic sheen for a futuristic feel.

Color and floral prints were trends seen at NYFW for spring. This is so fitting because beautiful, bright colors and blooms are hallmarks of that season. Mixed prints and patterns, another runway trend, can also be reminiscent of the medley of nature’s colors and patterns in spring and summer.
