Summertime 2020 might mean staying closer to home more than hitting the town and going out with your friends. But that doesn’t mean fashion trends are in quarantine. Whether it’s dressing up for a Zoom meeting or a stay-at-home date with your favorite person, it’s no secret that keeping up on the latest styles helps you feel better.
From micro-trend staples, such as scrunchies, scarfs and kerchiefs, to midi dresses and swimwear, here are five of the hottest trends for this unconventional summer.
Tank tops have long been a layering staple in the closet. But this summer is bringing these typically concealed pieces boiling to the surface. Make a bright-colored tank the center of attention by pairing it with jeans, a skirt or leggings. But it’s not all about solids this year. Tie-dye and animal print details are showing up from the (home) office to the beach. And if you’re looking for more texture in your wardrobe, you’ll probably be excited for material trends like crochet and lace.
Shorts, Shorts and MORE Shorts
Summertime has always cried out for shorts. And this summer is no exception. Terry shorts are just what quick trips to the store call for. Tuck your favorite tunic into a pair of paper bag shorts, throw on your trusty sandals and you’ll be ready to tackle the whole day. And, hey, who can blame anyone for wearing denim shorts . . . anywhere? It’s obvious, shorts aren’t a new trend. But, with so many working from home and plans being canceled, this summer is finally shorts’ moment of glory!
One Word . . . Activewear
After all, what’s hotter than self-care this year? This summer, activewear isn’t only reserved for the gym or early morning jogs. It’s been spotted from the catwalk to the coffee shop. From leggings and joggers to active tanks and sports bras, activewear is the functional and (let’s face it) comfortable staple for any on-the-go girl’s closet. Nail this active chic style with pieces in blue and purple hues. Tie your messy bun up with an animal print scrunchie and go tackle the day.
Yes, animal prints continue their reign as the fashionista’s go-to for adding color and dimension to any look. And while these chic prints have never truly gone out of style, they’re red-hot in 2020. Whether it’s adding flair to your favorite outfit with a leopard scrunchie or making a bold statement with a cheetah tunic, animal prints will be a staple of any trendy look this summer.
In the 1950s, house dresses were embraced as a graceful and functional wardrobe essential. And with 2020 shaping up to be the year of “stay-at-home,” midi dresses are the fashionable stand-in for the vintage standard. If you’re looking for a trendy, chic and comfortable outfit for lounging at home or running to the store, turn to the midi dress instead of yoga pants or pajamas. This summer’s trend has relaxed shapes, subdued hues and lightweight materials.
