Spring is beckoning, and New York catwalks have already showcased the most fashionable designs for the upcoming season. But keep in mind that European styles for Spring 2020 that already showcased last year have crept into the American fashion scene driven by fashionistas’ increasing desire for stylish yet comfortable attire. Here is a low down on what to look out for when shopping the NYC racks (and chic online shopping sites) for spring attire.
The Crocheted Look
It may sound kind of 70s but intricately threaded knitwear is trending this spring. Whether you are into ultra-slim figure-hugging long dresses or sexy mini dresses, you are sure to find a sexy crotcheted dress for a night out with the girls. What’s more, crochet wear is sustainable as it is handmade in a slow process to produce unique patterns.
The 60s wallpaper-like prints on silk fabrics is making a comeback this spring season. The brightly colored silk shirts with intricate patterns are a sight to behold, especially in the Valentino new women’s collection (feel free to browse for examples at luisaviaroma.com). Channel the inner elegant hipster in you by selecting one of the home décor inspired silks or go for the psychedelic wallpaper prints to spruce up your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid of neon colors, either!
Bras Under Blazers
Bras under blazers are trending this spring and come in all shapes and colors. Traditionally, blazers were considered masculine wear, but the newest blazers have feminine twists such as subtle animal and houndstooth patterns. This trend works best when you pair the bra with a matching blazer and then sport tight pants or a skirt and sandals. Check out for a great example of this hot look. Bras under blazers will be the perfect attire for off-duty days when you want to show off your toned midriff.
Leather Bermuda Shorts
Leather Bermuda shorts will be on the shopping lists of most people this spring. They can be worn as part of casual wear with silk blouses and leather coats or in a matching suit. As an option, match them with cotton button-downs and flat sandals to make for chic beach wear.
Long Pointed Collars
Long pointed collars gained their fame in the 70s but had a dramatic comeback on the runways for spring 2020. In line with tradition, they often are on blouses of contrasting colors in bold color block looks. Many trendy fashionistas love jackets with long pointy colors as well and often team them with similar blouses.
The spring fashion scene will show that vintage looks have made a big comeback through revitalized decades old pieces and new vintage inspired separates. Other looks such as the aforementioned bras under blazers appeal to the fashion forward crowd due to straight ahead sexiness. Whatever trends that you choose to buy into, you are sure to be on trend in Europe while sauntering in the New York’s sunny spring streets.
