Fashion Trends: 2020
BY KAJAL CHADHA
First thing you need to understand is that Trends have a short life, they come and go. So, you can’t pin-point the best because it would be out of fashion next moment… Things which look good today, won’t look same in the next season… There was a time when things took time to change but not now. I am going to talk in brief about the trends of this time, in 2020. This time, it’s definitely going to be transitioning.
On the HIGH STREETS’ FASHION, I have noticed a lot of things that have puffed sleeves, like dresses, tops and long shirts. So, the first trend which we are going to talk about is-
PUFFED SLEEVES ARE THE ONLY SLEEVES WHICH I THINK IS WORTH BUYING FOR, THIS SUMMER, AS THESE ARE COMFORTABLE AND CLOUD LIKE ON THE SHOULDERS.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PUFFED SLEEVES, THEY ARE QUITE BALLOONY. YOU CAN PAIR IT ALONG WITH THE MUM PANTS, FORMAL TROUSERS AND SKIRTS. SO, THIS CAN BE USED FOR BOTH CASUAL AND FORMAL PURPOSES.
RUFFLES AND FRILLS:
THE RUFFLE STORY COMES FROM THE 50’S TREND OF RUFFLE BLOUSES. FOR SOME STRANGE REASON, RUFFLES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH FEMININITY. BASICALLY, RUFFLE MEANS TO DISTURB THE ORIGINAL PLAIN TEXTURE OF SOMETHING WHEN THE CLOTH CURLS UP.
RUFFLES AND FRILLS ARE THE THINGS WHICH ADD QUIRKINESS TO YOUR OUTFIT AND IN SPRING, THEY LOOK AMAZING AND I THINK THIS TREND IS DEFINITELY GOING TO DOMINATE THIS TIME. THERE IS A LOT OF MIX AND MATCH OF COLOURS IN THIS SEASON, COLOURS WITH FRILLS AND RUFFLES.
A POCKET FULL OF POLKA DOT:
Polka dots have been trendy from some seasons now and they’re one of the best prints, if you ask me. As the pattern is quite simple with some dots and a background, they’re fairly easy to style. The polka dots are partly around the 1980s style with voluminous pieces and ruffles. The polka dots are mainly about the black and white combination. Either a black or a white background and the dots of the contrasting color. The dots have been popular to do as dresses, tops, pants and skirts. As for the more contemporary style; simple t-shirts, denim jackets, crop tops and midi skirts are commonly done with polka dots.
Polka dots have slowly been making a comeback since past several years. But this year maybe we can see them everywhere. This pattern looks classy on almost every body shape and complexion and the best part of this pattern is that you don’t need to accessorize your look much. Only light necklace, good heels and a solid colored handbag makes your look complete. You can even use a belt to accentuate your waist line.
