Sleeves are an under-appreciated aspect of fashion, but they are making a splash this season. Over-sized sleeves with flowy fabric are hitting the runway in 2020, bringing a fun and playful look to any outfit. The poufy sleeves on our Floral Print Heathered Top fit perfectly within this trend. The loose material cinches at the wrists and has a spring-friendly floral pattern.
Chunky shoes paired with a dress
This spring, contrasts are in. Pair a chunky shoe with a feminine dress for the perfect combination of opposites. From boots to block heels, the options are endless. And the same goes for dresses. Anything flirty and feminine will do! Try our Slingback High Heel Platform Sandal with our Satin Wrap Dress for a fun combination.
Forget everything you think you know about crochet. This style is so much more than your grandma’s blankets or shawls. In 2020, crochet gets a makeover with sexy styles that are feminine and modern. With subtle cutouts and intricately woven fabrics, crochet styles create unique looks that will last you all spring and summer.
The details are eye-catching, and crochet pieces can be worn over or under outfits you already love. Our Crochet Top is a perfect way to get in on this feminine, sexy trend. Wear this piece with your favorite pair of jeans or throw on a fun wrap to make the look your own.
on is very in this spring and summer. If you have a favorite color, wear it loud and proud. From small neon accents like scrunchies and jewelry to highlighter pink dresses, you can incorporate this trend into your existing wardrobe with ease. Stand out in the crowd by embracing the bright, neon trend with our Fuchsia Convertible Dress for a night out. For a more casual look, our Summertime Maxi perfectly works bright yellow into your wardrobe.
The office is getting a casual makeover. Relaxed looks that still remain professional will be popular this spring and summer for a true business casual style. While many popular fashion houses are incorporating shorts into their office wear, that look is not practical for every office dress code. Instead, try pants that are comfortable while remaining both stylish and professional. Our Black Denim Jeans are the perfect way to make every day Casual Friday, while our Sand Plus Size Pants offer a chic but comfy solution to hot weather on workdays.
Underwear is becoming outerwear this spring and summer. If you’ve got it, flaunt it in a bra that doubles as a comfortable top. If you’re not comfortable showing so much skin, you can layer your bra with flowy tops or wraps for extra coverage. Start by trying new bras for your workout wear or at-leisure look. Our Supplex Sports Bra overs maximum coverage while providing a sleek and comfortable look.
When you think of spring and summer layers, you may instantly think of piling on clothes to create a look. However, this season, layers are going in a different direction. Opt for a look with layered ruffles or tiers for a flowy and light look that is comfortable through spring and summer. Tops with ruffled sleeves or sun dresses with tiers are easy ways to incorporate this trend into your closet. Our Tiered Stripe Swing Dress will keep you cool all summer while adding this fun trend to your wardrobe. Pair it with your favorite sandals, add a chic hat, or throw on a wrap for a truly layered look.
Bring the 60s into the new decade with chic prints that resemble the fun and trendy prints of years past. Florals are an easy way to bring the look and feel of wallpaper into your wardrobe while remaining on-trend. Rich colors, like reds, provide a 60s vibe and modern floral prints make wallpaper styles truly chic and trendy. Our Floral Delight SunDress takes the wallpaper trend a step further by incorporating a beautiful pattern with a 60s-style shift dress.
Decades past find their way in a new trend thanks to polka dots. This 1950s style is getting a modern overhaul for spring and summer 2020. From large polka dots to small patterns, you can find a polka dot style that works best for you and your style. You can wear polka dots in so many ways, including dresses, pants, tops, and fun accessories. For an everyday look, try our Sleeveless Mini Dress with a loose style and fun polka dot pattern. For an elegant night out or a wedding guest look, our Polka Dot Chiffon Dress is the perfect mix of vintage and modern.
White and cream
White and cream are summer staples, but this classic color is even bigger for 2020. Think of the white or cream trend as a blank canvas by incorporating all-white or ivory outfits into your wardrobe. From maxi dresses to jumpsuits, this trend provides a classic summer look. Accessorize your outfit with bright jewelry or keep it minimal and chic. Our Classic V-Neck Dress is the perfect dress to throw on and go all spring and summer.
Show some skin this summer by incorporating the cutouts trend. In recent years, cold shoulder tops stole the show. This spring and summer, unique and interesting cutouts will be in style. From open backs to peek-a-boo sides, cutouts can be included in almost any wardrobe. If you’re not a fan of revealing cutouts, try fun necklines or cutouts at the hem of a dress or pants. Our Solid Strap Maxi Dress features an intricate cutout neckline that stands out.
Blue is the chic color of the spring and summer for 2020. From rich, jewel tones to bright and lighter shades, blue will be everywhere this year. Add pops of blue with sandals or sneakers or scarves, or go for a full blue look with denim and tops. Our Lace Trim Open Front Duster offers rich blue tones that pair perfectly with your favorite pair of jeans, and our Playful Lace Up Blouse offers a light blue shade with chic lace accents.
Get away without having to break the bank on a new vacation. Tropical prints are in this spring and summer, giving us major island vibes. Whether you are enjoying a stay-cation this summer or packing your bags for a beach getaway, a tropical top or dress will provide the fun, flirty style your wardrobe needs. Our Tropical Floral Print Kimono Duster is a chic top with a fun knotted accent and our Butterfly Sleeve Tropical Top will take you to the Bahamas every time you put it on.
