New York City and Los Angeles are the centers of America’s fashion industry. All the fashion trends start from here.
Apart from professional business attire, American fashion is eclectic and predominantly informal. While Americans’ diverse cultural roots are reflected in their clothing, particularly those of recent immigrants, cowboy hats, boots, jeans, and leather motorcycle jackets are emblematic of specifically American styles.
Fashion trends are always changing. The clothes we wear depend on the season but we are inspired by what the celebrities are wearing and what we see in fashion shows. Although, everyday people can’t afford buying clothes from famous designers, if you know what items are prefered and how to match them, then you can easily recreate expensive outfits
The main fashion trends for 2020 are pastels, bold colors, monochromatic looks, feathers, and skirts in general – we have not seen a lot of skirts for a while now and people are tired of jeans.
Some of the fashion trends are:
1. Animal Prints & Mixed Prints
Print galore are here to stay and are ready to wear. Animal Prints have always been a popularly trend, but this print has evolved from zebra stripes and leopard spots to snakeskin print being the most popular animal print to dominate.
It’s an all year round fabric now which means a must have for your closet. From skirts, dresses, leggings you can’t go wrong with this trend and it’s also why it’s not saying goodbye any time soon.
Not everyone can be Lady Gaga in Valentino when it comes to feathers but every girl should have a bit of this trend in her closet. Designers such Christian Cowan, Calvin Klein and Michael Kors have made it attainable.
4. Pleated Pants
The 80’s have returned in many ways but this front pleated pant look from that era is now modernized for a fresh perspective.
5. Dress/Skirt over Pants
The dress or skirt over a pair of wide legs gives not only a modest look but a taller look as well.
6. Logo printed Denim
Denim will never go out of style but giving it logo love is a definite way to spruce it up and a way for designers like Balenciaga, Chanel and up and coming designer Andre Emery to have a place to 2020.
Power Suits are back in a big way and they help you standout from the crowd. Play up this trend with a bold suit in red or blue. This trend gives off a sophisticated and effortless style.
8. Tie Dye
It is officially back as a core trend. No matter how you feel about, expect to see this trend across retailers in jackets, sweatshirts and unique prints.
9. Bold and Pastel color
Neon greens, pinks and purples were all the rage across the runways this season. Add this trend as a purse, hat or shoes if neon is too overwhelming for you.
If bold colors are not your thing. Pastels are still a big trend. Consider Pastels as the new neutral for 2020. Embrace baby pinks, blues and purple.
10. Logo Accessories
They are back! Wearing logo accessories are going to be very popular going into the year. Chanel, Gucci, Fendi (just to name a few) have been on trend with this.
Fringe can be found on clothing, shoes, and accessories. Feathers can be found on accessories and handbags.
Of course fanny packs aren’t going anywhere. But have you thought about wearing oversized tote bags or doubling your bags? This is a new trend that has been hitting the scenes and was featured on the runways of NYFW.
