We’ve been dreaming of summer weather ever since the clocks went back and we were burdened with the concept of the sun setting to complete darkness by 4 p.m. It’s been a long winter, and while we can’t exactly say we’re out of the woods yet (it did snow this week, after all), we can certainly see the literal and metaphorical light at the end of the cold and wintry tunnel.
Thankfully, not only do we have summer weather to look forward to in the coming months, but also summer trends. With the S/S 20 runways of last September as our indication, it’s shaping up to be a chic season. Interestingly enough, it seems the street style set are equally as enthralled with next season’s trends as several showgoers at fashion week are already trialling the most-talked-about looks.
From the must-have new spiral sandals by Bottega Veneta to neon colourways to this season’s It item—aka Bermuda shorts—the fashion set is proving you don’t need to wait until summer to wear summer trends.
Of course, industry insiders are finding their own ways to make the trends seasonally appropriate for right now. For example, many are pairing their Bermuda shorts against knee-high boots and blazers, while others are opting to wear neon hues in cosy knits or tailored separates. Keep scrolling for the three summer trends fashion people are already wearing.
