As we go into the new year or even the new decade, new trends are bound to start appearing. Which is good because trends are fun and fashion has been in a slight coma as of recently, but that’s another conversation. Here are my predictions:
(Also, thank you to a reader who sent me the idea! I can’t find the tweet, but if you sent the idea and want credit, dm me!)
1920s fashion will be huge in 2020.
This is kinda obvious because everyone’s been talking about going back to that era of fashion, but I still think it’s important to note. I think we’ll definitely see more flapper dresses, short bobs on women, more flapper purses, and more feathers being used as accessories.
We’ll probably also be taking style inspiration from the late 2000s to early 2010s.
In the late 2000s, we took inspiration from the 90s. In the 2010s, everyone was obsessed with early 2000s culture and style. In the 2020s, early 2010s fashion will probably have it’s moment in the sun. Which means tennis skirts, Bethany Mota’s ‘Motavator‘ shirts, Miley Cyrus’ 2011 paparazzi pictures, and that Acacia Brinley phase you went through when you were twelve are all coming back.
We’ll become more sustainable!
Not really a prediction, more of a hope. I feel like in the 2010s, a lot of people start to shop more sustainably or at least become more aware of sustainable fashion and what it is. As more climate change related news starts to surface, more sustainable shops will open and more customers will try to be more sustainable. Hopefully. Fingers crossed.
I think this will happen because even shopping somewhat sustainably can be extremely beneficial (for your wallet, closet, and the environment) and kinda simple. I even have an article on five simple ways you can sustainably shop here.
Wide-leg pants will be everyone’s obsession.
Although this trend was hinted at throughout 2019, I feel like the trend will probably peak in 2020. With fashion icons such as Zoe Kravitz, Kate Middleton, Harry Styles, Yara Shahidi, and Kaia Gerber wearing this trend – I think we should all follow their lead.
Everyone will have at least a handful of shirts that have puffy sleeves.
Those dramatic, puffy, Victorian-esque sleeves will be huge in 2020. We’ve already seen the on the runway at Simone Rocha and Longchamp and they were beautiful then. They’ll look even better in our closet.
These sleeves can work on shirts or dresses. It’s a very ‘babydoll’ type of look – which I love. Reformation has already capitalized on this trend if you want to stock up on puffy sleeves already.
