As I’m typing this, there is actual snow falling and sticking to the ground. It’s a brisk minus 1 degrees C outside (lows of minus 7 today), and still the air quality isn’t great (86 on the AQI), but I want to talk about spring trends for 2020, even if spring seems to be a distant future. I’ve been looking at what went down during fashion week, both catwalk and streetstyle, what’s being forecast through some of the shopping apps I use; I even ventured out to see if there was anything in store I could pick up already.
Pastels are always a safe bet for a spring look, but there’s something really fresh about Lemon or Lemon-varient shades. Honestly, it’s not a colour I gravitate to often as it doesn’t work too well with my skin tone, but this spring I am feeling it. Ever since getting my hands on those topshop check trousers, yellow has been working its way into my wardrobe.
If Lemon isn’t your taste, then the other sweet as sugar sherbet shades are right on trend too. So go forth and find your fix of lavenders, powder blues, minty greens, and baby coral pinks (one of Pantone’s trending colours this year).
Structure may not be the first thing that comes to mind when mentioning spring fashion, we think florals, floaty dresses, and the ever present need for an umbrella. But 2020 is going to throw a suit jacket over that to add a little bit of balance. This can blend really well with the ‘Heritage Mood’ trend, so … two trendy birds, one stone.
Sheer fabrics were a big player on the Spring Summer 2020 catwalks, and so will be making waves in the way of trends for the spring 2020 season. You can take styling inspiration from DEMOO PARKCHOONMOO, BY.D’BY, and DEW E DEW E, who all featured a lot of looks with sheer elements, from overlay dresses, to jumpsuits, shirts and trousers.
Think checks, fleece, and the sorts of things you’d more often see on British Farmers than trendy Seoulites. Nice to know spring 2020 trends will make me feel like I’m back in old blighty – though I am seriously looking for a fleecy jacket, especially if this snow won’t stop. This trend took hold in 2019, but it’s stayed a steady seller, so I’m not surprised to see it still going strong for spring 2020.
Possibly one of my favourite street style trends for the new season is chunky cleated soles. Whilst the runway is getting pretty with Mary Janes and kitten heeled mules, the street has firmly decided that chunky is here to stay for a little while longer. I’ve long been a supporter of the cleated sole, the style has been repped in my wardrobe for a good 5 or 6 years now (you can see how I style them here on my IGTV), so they’ve transcended trend and are firmly a Wardrobe Staple.

What are some spring 2020 trends you’re loving for the new season? I’m also rejoicing at the return of square toes, and the fact that accessories are booming currently.
