With fashion changing all the time, we can sometimes feel a little wary of stepping out in something that’s ‘so last season’. Of course, if you’re just popping to the shops, you might feel comfortable rocking your 2018 cropped flares and cold shoulder sleeves, but if you’re heading out on the town and want to dazzle, it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest trends that are ‘in’ this year. So just what are 2020’s key fashion trends?
Eye Catching Colour
‘Marigold’ is the colour on everyone’s lips this year, but we’re also seeing a lot of marigold-adjacent hues, like corals and tangerines, and all sorts of bright and bold shades of pinky-orange. And the 2020 awards season was full of this vibrant trend.
Zoe Kravtiz looked stunning in a sort of peachy Oscar de la Renta dress at the SAG Awards, and Catherine O’Hara’s orangey-gold Marc Jacobs turtleneck gown was to die for. This is a trend that isn’t just limited to clothing, and we’re already seeing a number of designers incorporate these beachy shades into a range of accessories. We love the eye catching coral pieces in Argentina-based Sibilia’s lovely earring collection.

Florals are a trend that keep coming and going, but if Taylor Swift’s flowery appearance at the 2020 Golden Globes is anything to go by, it’s here to stay this year. Rose print designs are expected to be hot in 2020, but Taylor’s daisy-inspired print also works.
Taylor paired her Etro Couture gown with Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery, but the beauty of florals is that there’s no need to search endlessly for accessories that match. Floral prints are quite dramatic and bold in nature, which means that it’s easy to get away with some low key, simple accessories like subtle lariat necklaces, simple stud or hoop earrings, and narrow belts with just a hint of sparkle. Or if you want to go floral all the way check out Lover's Tempo's Floral Ear Climber Earrings.

London Fashion Week’s spring/summer 2020 runway was filled with fringe. We’ve seen everything from 1920’s flapper-style dresses (an appropriate comeback for the new 20’s), to fringe denim jackets, and bags lined with fringe and layers and layers of ruffles.
The thing with fringe is that it’s one of those trends that you’re either comfortable with, or you’re not. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground here. But that’s OK. Even if you’re not too keen on wearing clothing with fringe features, you can still incorporate this trend into your look by carefully selecting the right accessories. One of our favourite jewellery designers, Lovers Tempo, has a great range of statement piece fringe earrings.

Barely There Bra Tops
All eyes were on Phoebe Waller-Bridge at the 2020 SAG Awards, as she hit the red carpet in a simple black bra top (with killer abs to boot). Bra tops are all the rage, with Fendi, Dior, Givenchy, Giambattista Valli, and Loewe all jumping on the bandwagon.
The barely there trend is giving way to yet another emerging style: accessories as the ‘new clothing’. With minimal material, this trend is opening up doors for us to have a lot more fun with our accessories, and really make them the star of the show. Phoebe opted to accessorise with a mesh overlay, but there’s no reason why big, chunky statement necklaces, layered necklaces, and bold pendants couldn’t be used, too.
