As much as I am the biggest fan of investing in classic pieces, I love to spoil myself now and then and follow few trends, that will most likely become a statement or return in future season – fashion is revolving! Upcoming seasons will bring a lot of refreshed trends from past, so it’s worth to look around the local thrift shops and search on the apps like Depop or Vinted.

Accessories – I call them the soul of the look. Even if you serve a simple white shirt and denim look, a good pair of shoes, sunglasses and bag (I wrote about them in 7 it bags for 2020) and, theoretically ‘boring’ look can become really interesting.

This time is all about my favourite, yet neglected, when it comes to my investments – shoes!

espadrilles

I remember, back in 2015 when I actually started to be more aware of fashion, espadrilles were huge! And everywhere! They definitely have their biggest return moment yet, but I’m pretty sure they will be coming back every season!

Style tip! Get inspired by 80’s and style them with oversized linen white dresses or bell bottoms.

mary janes

Inspired by unisex shoes for children from early XX century years, Mary Janes became an inspiration for the biggest fashion houses like Gucci, Chanel or Miu Miu. This time in sexy, high heeled version.

Style tip! Although they may be too heavy for flowery maxi dresses, they will work amazing with miniskirts, LBDs and marine shorts!

loafers

Okay, they’re classics, and if you own a pair of classic loafers, it may be the time to think about more chicky version of them! Also, check my Sienna Millers’ Style close up for major loafer inspo!

Style tip! Classic loafers will look amazing with oversized pieces like blazers or puffy dresses!

PCV sandals

‘Barely there’ sandals updated to invisible ones! I was quite sceptical when it came to them at first, maybe because all the sweaty boots stories I’ve heard of (or seen!!!), but using PCV in sandals is quite smart move – they’re definately more breathable than ankle boots.

Style tip! They will look amazing, complementing both coctail party and ripped jeans and t-shirt coffee date looks!

After the time of oversized, shoulder padded, boyfriend, ex-boyfriend and dad blazers, the time came! Cropped blazer made it’s way into 2020 with a lot of positive noise. It hits the waist just in the right place, subtely accenting it and it looks extra-cute with co-ord bottoms.

Fashion can be crazy. We’ve all seen and heard stories about bloggers and fashion influencers running on the streets of New York during Fashion Week in the highest and most uncomfortable heels ever, or choosing strappy sandals in -10 degrees weather, passing out because of hypothermia.

Luckily, this season there are weather appropriate trends that will keep you warm and stylish at the same time!

combat boots

Combat boots go very well with almost everything, and you don’t need more than skinny jeans and leather coat to pull them off. But they will work great with flowery midi dress and trench combo (Anna inspired), or pleated skirt and knitted vest. It’s the biggest blessing for me, as my feet won’t stand high heels for more than few hours (and by few, I mean the number really close to 1).

leather trousers

Straight legged trousers are my personal winner, when it comes to trends this season. They are a big statement themselves and can play main role in the outfit, but can play a great basic at the same time, paired with statement ruffled top or PCV boots. Leather goods can definitely be a bigger investments, but it’s always good to check your local second hand shops for unique designs!

knitted co-ords

Who would predict that cosy knitted co-ords will happen to be one of the sexiest trends in 2020? Style it with a boxy office bag or a statement sneakers to complement your knit matching situation. Knits can feel baggy, so if you want to accent your curves, wrap heavy belt or simply tuck your top in the bottoms. And I would’ve forgotten – you can style them separately, preferably with other trends mentioned!

chunky cardigans

Surprisingly, cardigan had its’ biggest moment last Summer, when lots of Instagram models, including Bella Hadid, posted tones of pictures wearing micro knits as tops. This Winter season it evolved into a chunky, heavy cardigan, serving its’ desired purpose – making us extra cosy and warm in the rainy or snowy times.

Vests are another surprisingly practical trend that appeared this season. Going the classic way, you can style them with an oversized shirt and wool palazzo trousers. But I see them mixed with all the trends I mentioned on this post – oversized and chunky, with matching knitted top underneath, paired with leather trousers and combat boots.
