So long, fashion month! Last Tuesday, the proverbial curtains closed on Louis Vuitton’s Belle Époque-themed grand finale and all the editors, bloggers and models headed home. (Not counting the ones that left days earlier to make it to Justin and Hailey Bieber’s wedding, that is.)
While we’re sad to bid adieu to so many memorable style (and cultural) moments — Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Barclays Center bash, the second coming of J.Lo’s internet-breaking Versace dress, Christian Lacroix’s return to Paris Fashion Week by way of Dries Van Noten, Chanel’s runway crasher — we’re beyond eager to take on all the fun Spring 2020 trends that made themselves known.
This batch of collections was not about subtlety. Many designers looked to the past this season, borrowing some of the 15th and 18th centuries’ most sartorially dramatic trends. Statement hats were everywhere (thank you, Jacquemus) as were the brightest shades of orange and the shiniest of golds. Also, polka dots got a cool-kid update as did grandmotherly crochet and pseudo-conservative Bermuda shorts.
Another thing to note: once the weather warms again, wearing your underwear in public will not only be socially acceptable, it’ll be highly encouraged.
