The Hottest NYFW Spring / Summer 2020 Trends

NYFW is officially over and we’re drooling over the hot Summer/Spring wear! Even though we’re approaching the colder months, it’s always important to stay ahead of the game for the warmer days to come. The top  trends we’ve spotlighted below are certainly not about blending in, but about standing up and standing out. From the fluorescent denim at Helmut Lang to the voluminous gowns at Marc Jacobs, the shades and silhouettes of Spring 2020 are uncompromising in their boldness.

Catch up on all the top trends that we saw on the runways!

Bright Colors!

From highlighter hues rendered in minimalist silhouettes to dressed up shades of safety orange, designers such as Helmut Lang and Marc Jacobs went bold. Whether it was monochromatic looks or color-blocking, spring/summer in 2020 is looking really bright!

Sharp Tailoring

The power suit has been around for decades and sure enough we saw the runways packed with ultra cool, urban takes on tailored suiting. Designers like Proenza Schouler took most of their inspiration from the women in their office and showcased boxy, edgy cuts in their fits. While Ryan Roche kept his suit looks minimalist and soft by pairing them with silk button-downs and touches of lace.

Turn Up the Volume

Fashion is obsessed with the generation of consumers that missed the ’80s — millennials and Gen Z — so why not show them all the sartorial thrills they didn’t get to experience first-hand? That is precisely what designers did this season when they offered up a plethora of big-shouldered suits, bold prints, high volume party dresses and textured jackets.

Playful Layering

We’re used to layering up in the winter, but New York designers want us to layer up for spring. Dresses over pants seem to be the season’s most directional silhouette, though some brands went a little crazy and piled it all on.
