Adjustable neck gaiter online shopping? Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. Meryl Streep might have been famously unimpressed by some of the spring/summer trends in 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada, so it’s probably best she avoids this article. Floral designs are just one fashion trend set to return in a big way this spring, having been shown extensively at September’s Fashion Weeks. Not all the outfits which were showcased in Paris, Milan, London and New York will make it onto the high street in the exact form we saw them on the catwalk. But elements of the clothes on show – whether it be an idea, colour, material or pattern – are picked up and copied by other designers, and heavily influence what we see in the shops a few months later.
Tailoring’s grip is as firm as ever for spring (if you’re looking to invest in an exemplary trouser suit, now’s the time) but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some new, well-cut proposals. Exhibit A: the shorts suit. Cut long and lean, falling just below the knee, at Givenchy they channelled what Clare Waight Keller called “raw, boyish energy”; at Max Mara, they had a crisp, faintly militaristic bent, thanks to Ian Griffiths’s stated desire to dress female assassins; and at Michael Kors, Salvatore Ferragamo and Rejina Pyo they looked positively peppy, cut high on the thigh. You might be sceptical now, but given how wedded you probably are to blazers, consider this trend a logical – and inevitable – progression.
Classic button-down shirts have become one of the most sartorially talked-about basics over the past couple of seasons, but this groovy 2020 take is bringing us back to the disco days, and we are not complaining. It is customary to keep your shirt collars tucked beneath your blazer lapels, but this spring, designers styled their ’70s-esque collections with big (emphasis on the big) collars pulled out from their usual hiding places beneath blazers and jackets alike. You know what they say: The bigger the collar, the more stylish the look. While collars made a major splash within this trend theme, so did the overall styling of all the iconic pieces from the decade. I mean, it’s hard to see shearling-lined suede vests paired over a mod floral minidresses and not think Jackie Burkhart, which is why we’ve come to terms with the ’70s as an overall vibe being just as important as the individual components. When it comes time to re-create this look, be sure to hit up the designers listed above, especially since the styling of disco collars and cropped sweater vests might not come naturally to you (or to us).
