With the change of pace from Coronavirus, it would be easy to think designers have taken a step back with their autumn 2020 trends.
A lack of sales over lockdown, and a perceived lower need for clothing as we still worked from home took ahold. However, whole new trends emerged including trending loungewear and lockdown looks meant people continued to fill their fashion fix with looks and nowhere to go.
Fashion was not lost; new trends emerged and people knew new clothing was the perfect way to lift one’s spirits. Covid-19 however put emphasis on another crisis- Global Warming. Through this, designers are increasingly working with rental brands like The Devout, creating timeless rather than seasonal ranges and using more and more sustainable materials- we’re here for it.
No matter how turbulent the year, fashion continues to put a smile on people’s faces, and that’s why the autumn/winter 2020 trends are still ready to hit the fashion landscape. Take a look at some of the versatile trends you need this autumn…
Like florals for spring, autumnal hues will always come back around for this season. As the weather gets colder, the colours get warmer, the clothing gets cosier and the coffee gets warmer- sunset tones are for nostalgic souls who treat the season like a festival. Shades of mustard and buttercup yellows go hand in hand with rusts, pumpkin oranges and soft browns for a cosy yet neutral look in minimalist jumpers and knits, heritage-inspired checks and essential winter coats.
Bright Pop Colours
For those that prefer something a little different this season, pop colours are about to hit new fashion heights. From the office to drinks out to casual weekends, pop colours will become the foe of traditional autumn shades. Whether monochrome looks of head-to-toe pink or a pop of blue in your cardigan is more your thing, this bright trend is more accessible than you’d think.
PU and Leather
We’ve all seen this trend coming for a while now, so PU and leather is about to seriously hit the mainstream. From trending Matrix-esque black leather jackets to PU shackets and sumptuous skirts and jeans, this trend can be worn for a smart look, evening out or at the weekend with a cas jacket.
Another trend that has been increasing in popularity is the balloon shape, so with cosy layering and party season around the corner, these shapes are about to blow up. From Rat & Boa’s iconic puff sleeves to Ganni’s babydolls, you’ve got to pump it up.
Finally, tiger print is set to be huge. Whether it’s from the Tiger King obsession from early lockdown, or an evolution of leopard print, this autumnal hued animal trend is perfect for out-out dresses, fur coats and stylish blouses.
