Dancing into Spring 2020 with These Trends

I’ll let you in on a little secret about me-I’m not ready for Spring!  I am a “fall/winter fashion” girl.  I don’t love the cold temps but I do love all things comfy, cozy and boots!  However, in the South, we had a very mild Winter.  So… Here I come Spring!  There are a number of trends I am excited about for Spring 2020.  From tie-dye to polka dots, everyone will find something to add to their wardrobes this Spring.

Tie it up!~Although Water elements may be drawn to the interesting free-flowing shapes and interesting colors and designs, those that lived through the ’60s may (or may not) want to add this fun, casual trend.  You’ll see phone covers, shoes, handbags, and clothing in your favorite color of Tie-Dye.  I love it for athleisure wear, swimsuits, and accessories.  Wearing tie-dye is definitely a creative expression and most elements can easily incorporate it as their summer trend if they desire.

Don’t Ruffle My Feathers~ Water Elements along with Wood, Metal, Fire and possibly Earth, may enjoy wearing Ruffles in some capacity.  We’ve seen this trend along with the “statement sleeve” continuing from seasons past.  This season it’s about the “Puffy Sleeve”.  Both trends fall into the Water Element with flowy fabrics in the design elements.  Wood Elements can add a striped blouse with Puffy Sleeves, while the Fire Element may want to show some skin and have either a statement sleeve or an off the shoulder animal print blouse with Ruffles at the sleeve cuff.  Metal Elements may opt for a white dress with Ruffle detailing down the front.  There is truly something for everyone with these trends.

Blue Skies Ahead~ Moving into Classic Blue, Pantone’s Color of 2020.  This is a gorgeous shade that looks incredible on just about any skin tone.  Wood Elements will be drawn to the color and this particular shade of blue but consider all blues when adding a new pop of color to your Spring wardrobe.  From deep to bright and bold, look for blue hues in sunglasses, shoes and men’s suiting.  Consider making blue your new black this season. It’s a neutral that can coordinate with MANY items already in your closet and wardrobe.

Polished and Primed~ The Fire Elements will be drawn to the High Shine trend.  Whether it’s patent leather or the shiny metallic finish in accessories.  I love a patent leather trench coat or a retro ankle bootie with a Square Toe (more on that trend below).  Men can pull out patent leather dress shoes and wear them with casual pieces as opposed to only wearing them for a special occasion.  Try them with jeans and a cool print jacket for a night out.  Shiny chunky gold necklaces will start to replace the long pendants of seasons past, so Metal Elements may want to add them as a Spring accessory with their favorite monochromatic or pastel dress.

It’s Hip to be Square and Plain Jane~ Two shoe trends we’ll see are the comeback of the Mary Jane and Square Toe shoes.  Earth Elements may want to add a pair or two of each style to their classic wardrobes.  You’ll see these shoe styles in many fabrics, patterns and designs. For a woman with a larger foot, the Square Toe design chops the foot down a bit.  Look for sandals with a Square Toe and the chunky heel in various heel heights. Both are comfortable and stylish.

White Blouse Reinvented~ For years, I have reminded my clients to keep a White Blouse in their wardrobe to be worn with a multitude of outfits and for various occasions.  This season the White Blouse has many styles and options.  You may want to add a fitted one with Puffy Sleeves, lacey or sheer, asymmetrical or choose cream if you don’t care for white.  All elements can benefit from the White Blouse trend.  Metal Elements will want a perfectly tailored, crisp white version, while Earths will look for a classic style and cut.  Fires may choose sheer or cutouts on their White Blouse while Waters will look for flowy fabrics and maybe a Ruffletouch.  Even Wood Elements would be advised to add a sporty version to their wardrobes to pair back to jeans or just refresh their white tee.

 SPOT ON~ Finally, Polka Dots have come back to us!  Men can choose a Polka Dot tie or shirt with a micro pin dot pattern.  The Metal Elements may be drawn to the cashmere Polka Dot wrap or shoes.  Woods may opt for Dots on their jeans or rubber boots.  Earth Elements will want to add a beautiful dress or blazer with Dots.  And Water Elements my look for an asymmetrical design and only showcase the Dots on ½ of the garment.  If you’re not into dotted clothing, you could always add Polka Dots to your manicures or accessories.

Overall, the trends this season are very easy to wear and add items to update your wardrobe.  

I love these trends because they will be easy to find and are at every price point for you and your clients.  Which ones will you add?  Me?  I’ll definitely add a High Shine and possibly a Polka Dot item or two.  I have been obsessed with blue for some time so I may update a few blue items to my current pieces. 

Break out of your shell and try one of these Spring 2020 trends and you’ll be Dancing into Spring, feeling and looking fantastic!
