The spring trends to start wearing now

The sun's occasional appearance this week is just the excuse we need to make sure our wardrobe is looking up to snuff for the new season. While we might be a way off wearing the Bermuda short trend (we’ll need many layers of fake tan before that happens), there are plenty of ways to ease into spring fashion’s zeitgeist right now. From pepto-pink to retro denim cuts and the new '90s-inspired aesthetic, these are the spring 2020 trends to get a head start on.

Punchy pink

Green, cobalt, yellow, tangerine; there was nothing discreet about the neon explosion we saw on the spring/summer runways, but we particularly have eyes for the bright and beautiful magenta hue we saw illuminating a plethora of shows. This shade may conjure up thoughts of Legally Blonde's Elle Woods, with Bruiser the chihuahua in tow, but one look at the Marni, Erdem and Jacquemus spring collections will have you convinced of its contemporary value. A safe place to start for colour-phobes? Choose one stand out pink piece and tone it down with a neutral base and modern accessories like chain necklaces and textured ballet flats.

Polka dots

An old favourite print has been making waves across runways this season and it’s not florals (hallelujah). The collections of Dries Van Noten, Marc Jacobs, Richard Quinn and Max Mara made a real case for the polka dot as the new de facto print of spring. When it comes to adopting the trend yourself, this sustainably-made polka dot dress by Vero Moda is a great place to start. When off-duty, add a fashion-forward twist by wearing over jeans with an oversized jacket to strike that high/low balance of fancy and relaxed. For spring weddings and other shindigs, simply add chunky gold jewellery and strappy sandals.


'70s flares

From Celine to Paco Rabanne, this year’s spring collections reintroduced '70s-style flared jeans as the next It denim style. They’ve also already garnered quite the celebrity following with the likes of Gigi Hadid, Margot Robbie and Harry Styles all following suit. When it comes to styling, double down on the vintage vibe of the cut with accessories inspired by bygone decades: printed scarves, oversized sunglasses and platform shoes.

'90s minimalism


The '90s have been a source of inspiration for several seasons, but for 2020, instead of bum bags, tiny sunglasses and big trainers, designers like Bottega Veneta, Prada and The Row made a real return to minimalist dressing. Think clean lines, relaxed tailoring and simple staples, like Cher Horowitz in that Calvin Klein number in Clueless or Gwyneth Paltrow in Great Expectations.  Look for stripped-back slip dresses or skirts, racer-back vests, fine knitwear and barely there strappy sandals in a monochrome palette - a true minimalist’s uniform.
