10 Top Fashion Trends for 2020

Hi Everyone,

The good thing about fashion trends is that they really can be predicted in advance with an element of certainty. Perhaps it’s that traditional cycle where a new trend is spotted on the runway, followed by it being spotted in street style a season later. Then yet another year later it becoming a new trend in the high street stores. A good year after the first appearance in high street stores you will  then see 80% of us adopting a trend.

The only tricky part is in establishing which runway trends are really going to make it. Not all runway trends become adopted by the general consumer. Having said that, a trend that really takes off will remain on the top trend list several seasons before fading out.

So it is with an element of certainty that I can tell you now the top 10 fashion trends for 2020!

Note, all photos in this post were taken by me during Milan, Paris and New York fashion weeks.

10 Top Fashion Trends for 2020

1. Bags on bags

When it comes to bags, 2020 will be about the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette Accessoires and other similar styles. Prada is going back to nylon with bag on bag effect and Fendi too has a super range of bags with mini bags attached.

2. Olive green a new black

Olive green/khaki is one of 2020 highlights. Previously teamed with pastel blue, 2020 is all about teaming  green with green.


3. Animal Print

Not new but a trend that will continue. 2020 sees animal print in velvet fabrics for cooler months and lots of flouncy shoe string versions for Spring/Summer.


4. All White

Note too  the trousers with a tie on the bottom – this is a trend that will last a few seasons to come for sure. Invest now in a lovely new white suit!

5. Leather

8. The gold come back

Gold has found a new revival. Am convinced this trend is a little like the white boot trend – it will take many of us some time to fall in love with but is also here for longer than we think.


9. Three dimensional sunglasses
