Fashion Trends 2020 : What to expect?

Hi everyone,

While  I agree with some critics stating that the designers have been very lazy and uncreative over the past 2-3 years; I am looking forward to 2020 as most of the fashion trends that are expected to be seen in 2020 are already available in my closet. I just need some tailoring to make them fit my new size 0-2 (👧).

With that said, the ’70s will be serving as a baseline for most 2020 trends, with some 80's and 90's elements. Today I am sharing 15 fashion trends  (instead of 10) that I am looking forward to:

  • Suits, Suits & more suits. Suits are still going to be in style this year but with more patterned fabrics like houndstooth, plaid & more. Pants suit, skirt suits or short suits. Oversize blazer is still on trend.
  • If you loved the Julia Roberts suits in "Pretty Woman" then it's time to channel the Julia Roberts in you. Over the knee and over-sized short,  and fancy bermuda shorts (oversized) paired with mix or match blazer. I also expecting to see the culottes making a come back with some exaggerated proportion as I noticed that they are going big on the fabric. The more fabric the better.
  • Talking about lots of fabrics. Balance is created by simple elements like the tank tops (Bra tops, crop tops). Pair your oversize bermuda shorts or culotte with a simple white tank top and you are ready to go. They are also expected to see the classic white tee to be replaced by tank top. Living in the Caribbean, I am so looking forward to this.
  • While the tee will take a seat back, the  polo shirt is also making a come back reminds me of late 90's and early 00's where we were all splurging on those Lacoste, RL, A87 or Vineyards polos.
  • Although Pantone has set the tone for classic blue as color of the year, we are also expected to see a lot of neon green, lavender, ultra violet as well as orange and marigold.
  • Of course prints will still on trend - so no need to get rid of your last seasons animal prints goodies. Also, polka dots will be taking another level, the bigger the better? Have I said that we are going big this year?
  • Double denim (denim or denim or canadian suit) - a classic -  is also coming back with more comfort in mind (looser fit) and in all the colors you want. So What's your favorite color for your denim? Also, high-waisted jeans with wide legs are not going anywhere. The legs are simply becoming larger.
  • Fringe, statement ruffles and oversized sleeves. I like a nice puffy sleeves but some of those oversized sleeves shall remain on the runway - just saying...
  • Big bag is back- I meant oversized. I had some oversized handbags early 00's. I have to check to see if they are still around.
  • Leather: Colored leather, classic black leather, leather dress, leather skirt, leather pants, leather blazer you name it. I definitely need a replacement for my burgundy jacket.
  • Big chain are also making a comeback. I will still rock my layers but I'm here for some classy chains.
  • Mini dress: If you like a mini dress then it's your turn. If you haven't read my previous post on how to wear a mini dress/skirt without looking trashy for the Holidays. Those rules still apply. You can check that post here if you missed it. 
  • Waistcoat - Replace your blazer by a waistcoat and their your have it. I believe that  us in the Caribbean will definitely enjoy wearing a nice waistcoat set or just a belted one over your jeans.
  • Metallic and glitters. Metallic fabrics were big this holiday seasons and it seems that they aren't going away anytime soon.
  • More pleats: pleated dresses, pleated skirts, pleated top, pleated shorts and pants.

  1. Lots of trends that I love as well and can create from things already in my closet. The one thing I don’t think I will be on board with, however, is polo shirts. Just not my style. I will stick with button downs and tee shirts and continue to do my own thing! But that is the beauty of this generation, we can wear whatever we like and still look amazing, on trend or not. I love your double denim look, by the way!


    1. Hello Shelbee - Style is what you make of it but I enjoy following the current trends and see how we welcome them in our life. I am more on the classy side but I do enjoy incorporating fashion trends from time to time - keep me young ! -lol :-)

  2. I love the idea of suits being back in style, and I want some fun colored ones.

  3. I'm fine with 70's, but no more 80's, please. o))) Thank you for sharing this post with My Red Carpet.


  4. Definitely looking forward to rock my suits and denim on denim ��������

  5. Love the outfit and I will probably try the denim on denim

  6. Double denim looks fabulous! Thank you for sharing. Jacqui x

  7. I love hearing about the trends and it's such a bonus when most of the items are things we already own! Thanks for sharing this with us on our Style Six Link Up!

    1. Indeed Kelly Ann- so nice to know that you just have to go in your wardrobe to create your percfect trendy look :-). XO,

  8. Such a fun way to wear double denim! :) I hope tees aren't completely replaced with polo shirts - I love the tees I have (wearing one today!) and they get a lot of wear for mum life!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup!

    Away From Blue

    1. Well - I'm not sure that a tee can ever go out of style but this year the focus is "Polo" :-).
