Spring and summer are still a few months away, but the spring 2020 fashion shows took place months ago, meaning we already know what trends to shop for this year.
This year’s fashion shows showcased an interesting juxtaposition of timeless and trendy, classic and artsy. But this is great news for all of us budding fashionistas out there, as it means there’s something for everyone!
If you want to make a fashion statement in the new year, these spring and summer accessories will take your look from simple to stunning.
Read on to learn what pieces to purchase to stand out in the warmer months this year!
1. Colorful Glasses
If you’re a fan of adding a splash of color to your outfits, you’ll be happy to learn that colorful glasses are in this year! In years past, it was all about the shape of the shades, but shape has now taken a backseat to color.
You can choose any size or shape you like, as long as they have brightly colored lenses, you’re good to go.
2. Oversized Bags
Who doesn’t love an oversized bag? Being able to throw everything but the kitchen sink into your purse as you prepare for the day is great for those of us constantly on the go.
Well, in 2020 it’s the bigger the better! Throw an oversized bag over your shoulder and you’re sure to step out in style.
You may think boutonnières are just for men, but they’ve slid into high fashion and are now hip for everyone!
If you’re not the biggest fan of suits, no problem. All you have to do is pin a flower or two to your favorite floppy hat or the shoulder strap of the perfect summery dress to nail this trend.
4. Platform Shoes
Love the idea of adding a few inches to your height but hate wearing heels? You’re in luck! Platform shoes have made a comeback.
Specifically, platform sandals, which are the perfect choice when paired with a pair of jeans or a flowy sundress. Not to mention they’re a comfortable alternative to their less practical counterpart.
5. Chunky Necklaces
Statement necklaces gave way to daintier pieces in recent years, but the chunky necklace has returned! Whether you love a good gold or sparkly silver necklace, if it’s sculptural, you’re in style!
If comfort is king in your wardrobe, a chunky necklace is ideal for stepping up a jean and t-shirt combo.
6. Artful Earrings
Along with chunky necklaces, artful earrings are all the rage. Oversized pearls, asymmetrical hoops, and geometric drops will make the statement you’re looking for.
The best part is, a funky pair of earrings can be paired with just about anything and bam! You’re perfectly put together.
7. Hands-Free Bags
Fanny packs are back! But not just fanny packs. Petite shoulder bags, lighter case necklaces, even lipstick holster gloves are all fashionable choices.
As long as you’re taking a hands-free approach to carry your belongings, you’re in the right direction.
8. Shoe Jewelry
Necklaces and earrings are timeless, but if you really want to stand out this year, shoe jewelry is the way to go. Anything from a chic anklet to rest against the top of your strappy sandals to a string of pearls hanging from your pumps counts.
You accessorize yourself with jewelry, now it’s time to accessorize your shoes!
9. Raffia Bags
Never heard of raffia? It’s a straw-like material that has made a major splash this year. As sustainability becomes increasingly important, eco-friendly styles are making their way into fashion.
Bags are a beautiful and popular choice for this unique material, but you’ll also find raffia belts, even shoes! Raffia is biodegradable, making it an ideal choice for the environmentally conscious.
10. Head Wraps
A classy hat will always be in style. But if you’re looking for a slightly more fashion-forward look, consider adding a few head wraps to your collection.
All you have to do is choose an elegant scarf or two and wrap it around your hair! Because spring and summer are generally warmer months, be sure to look for light materials such as silk or linen to avoid overheating.
11. Bucket Bags
This one might sound a bit strange, but bucket bags are back! If you have a fearless approach to fashion, you can pick up a bucket bag that looks like an actual bucket! Or, if you’re a bit more understated but still want to be trendy, these bags also come in less obvious varieties.
12. Square-Toed Shoes
You probably own a pair of pointed pumps, a few sets of rounded sandals, but what about square-toed shoes?
From boots to heels to sandals, a straight toe is in. This trend is one of the most versatile, as square-toed shoes can be found to fit any outfit, from exquisite evening wear to casual beach clothes.
