We love ringing in the New Year. It’s a time for fresh starts, positive thinking and gorgeous new fashions! But what should we be looking out for as the next decade begins? Is it going to be another Roaring Twenties with abounding exuberance? And how should we be donning upcoming trends to the best (and most comfortable!) effect?
Once you’ve recovered from party season and can start to consider the year ahead, how will your looks change and evolve? 2020 is a special one – it’s not just the start of a new year, but the start of a new decade. The year will see some influential trends take hold. And they may well set the tone for how the decade will be remembered!
No, not the ’20’s flapper girls of 100 years ago, but retro 1990’s styles are going to stick around into 2020. The focus will shift, though. After all, there was a lot going on in the ’90’s – it takes time to get through it all! Grungy looks will continue to influence, with big boots paired with floaty dresses seeing us through Spring. For the most streamlined of silhouettes under a floaty dress, try a control slip.
All Jeans Great and Small
Jeans are big every season; it used to just be a question of whether you should be wearing boot cut, skinny, hipster or high waisted. 2020 is tipped to be something of a year for jean amnesty. This means that everything goes. So from bell bottoms to boy jeans to stone wash, variety is the trend. The key to get a killer jeans look is a great pair of control briefs. Whatever the cut of the leg, as long as you have your hips and bum shaped, the jeans will hang just so!
Floral and plaid are set to give way to polka dots in 2020. You can wear your spots however and wherever you care to! From little pin prick polkas to big bold spots, this pattern can create a huge range of looks. Matching patterns are set to be big, so team your tights with your shirt to deliver a perfect spotty style.
From metallic fabrics to shiny patent leather, all things reflective are kicking off in 2020. Faux leather is being showcased on catwalks from jackets to jumpsuits, and metallic fabrics are popular for suits and dresses alike. The rise of these fabrics indicate how important a bold and confident look is to the upcoming year. And what better way to wear your fashions with confidence than with some great fitting underlying shapewear!
Playsuits, jumpsuits and boiler suits have been on trend for a few years now, and this is set to continue in a sharp or utilitarian vibe. The great thing about the one-piece is that it can showcase all sorts of details that reflect current micro trends. So look out for oversized sleeves or sharp lapels. The thing about the one-piece that we just love is that there’s no chance of shapewear flashing on your midriff. So you can put your shaping bodysuit to good use!
2020’s continuation of the one piece trend don’t mean that two pieces are out! Suits will remain popular, with the supreme rule of the tailored image continuing through 2020. The way to carry off this high tailoring is to ensure a perfect fit. With the right shapewear foundation, your body will hold a tailored suit with both control and confidence.
So gather up all those gift cards you may have received for Christmas, and this January go forth and go bold with your fashion decisions. The central fashion message that we can foresee in 2020 is one of the confident statement piece. So secure your streamlined silhouette and enjoy the new decade!
