Shop fashion’s new trends for 2020 at Marriotts Walk

A new decade calls for a change in direction and while there are many new looks on the catwalk, a number of these take inspiration from previous decades. Seventies flamboyance and eighties colours feature in the charge back to the past, complete with an update fit for the 2020s.

With classic looks dominating the trends for the coming year now is a good time to splash out on an outfit that will last. Tailored looks take centre stage in the style stakes and there is plenty of scope to dress up existing outfits with jackets and shirts. Whether it is floaty dresses, tailored cuts or daring details that catch your eye, 2020 has some thing for everyone.

The key trends predicted to make the transition from catwalk to street style include:

Whether it’s an oversize blazer, high-waisted and wide-fitting trousers or a smart trouser suit, tailoring matters this year. A blazer, such as those on offer at Hobbs, is an excellent way to dress up any outfit from smart casual, to office attire, to a big night out making it an excellent investment. Turn up the fashion factor by choosing loose-fitting tailoring.

Fitting hand-in-hand with the trend for tailored looks, shirts are tipped to become the go-to item to dress up for work or to team with jeans or a skirt for an on-trend everyday look. Try Crew Clothing for an excellent selection of shirts.

Trench coats

An emblem of 80s power dressing, the trench has continued to dip in and out of fashion in the years that have passed since. Big things are predicted for the trench in 2020 and its enduring popularity makes this a good choice for a fashion splurge.

It’s not just the trench that might make you think of the 80s as neons continue to make a claim on the fashion colourscape. Pops of fluorescent green, pink, blue, yellow and orange will be seen in all sorts of clothing from smart to sporty. If you’re not ready for head-to-toe neon team it with tailored black trousers or classic denims.

And when it comes to jeans it looks like the era of the skinny jean may be far from over – but new styles are certainly expanding choice. Shorts, skirts, flares and wide-legged jeans will all be giving denim an overhaul in the coming year. With plenty to offer to people of all shapes and sizes the expanded offering of denim can only be a good thing. Debenhams is a great place to look for a wide selection of styles.

Sheer materials

Daring details can be revealed under the cover of sheer fabrics as fashions up the ante in the glamour stakes. Sheer shirts and dresses can be used as layering or as a barely-there cover-up on a night out. With all cuts, designs and details on offer this trend will be more accessible than you might at first think – check out the glammed up style at Monsoon.

Complement these major trends with puffy sleeves, high-necked or floaty seventies dresses, leather trousers and skirts, and patterned accents for a look that you can call your own – there is certainly plenty of choice.
