Designer Fashion in Summer 2020 or What to Wear After the Lockdown

Products • 02/06/20

The pandemic has kept us indoors for longer than anticipated, but the day-to-day news is giving a lot of hope we will get to enjoy the summer outside. Here comes another dilemma – what to wear once we retire the loungewear? Don’t worry, at Kture we’ve got your back and have prepared a list of designer fashion trends we expect to see after the lockdown is lifted.

Statement Sleeves

Having been a massive boom last season, the statement sleeves are predicted to go strong this summer, too. And rightfully so. This designer fashion trend works miracles with absolutely every body shape and, if anything, allows you to hide any flaws you may be insecure about. Narrow top half but bigger hips? Puffed shoulders will balance that out. Gained some weight around your tummy during the lockdown? A full statement or bell sleeve will drive the attention away from that. Benefits all over.

Peplum

Despite being forgotten for years, the peplum cut is expected to have a tremendous come back. We can see this style rocking the world of designer fashion all over again, winning hearts with a handy hemline that helps to cover up post-lockdown weight gain by putting an emphasis on the waist. The opportunities in terms of matching peplum tops are countless, too. Being elegant and yet simple, they will work with a pair of skinny jeans as well as they will complement a tube skirt.

Sheer Overlays

Nothing screams ‘warm weather’ louder than sheer overlays. When it’s too hot for cardigans yet too cold for spaghetti straps, a semi-transparent shirt to pop atop your bottom layers works miracles. Extra points if it has a beautiful floral pattern. The best part is that there are no rules – from cami vests to a pair of designer denims, sheer overlays add a lovely twist to any outfit.

Collars

Another previously forgotten designer fashion trend is coming back into our lives – statement collars. Similarly to the statement sleeves, they come in a large variety that will work miracles for every body shape. Smaller in bust ladies should aim to get their hands on Peter Pan collar. Those with fuller ones will benefit greatly from triangular collars and v-necks. A statement collar won’t only amplify one’s bust, though – it will also do a great job for framing the face.

Tailoring and Co-ords

While associated with the office, tailoring sure adds little work motivation when working remotely. Alternatively, don’t forget video calls when you are required to look smart and yet want to be comfortable. When the lockdown ends, you will find tailoring being great for small things like date nights too, giving you an elegantly classic look that will never go out of fashion. You can always pair it with a pair of heels and a silky cami, or a white tee and white trainers. Who said office wear is limited to the office only?

Florals

Dark florals were the hit in winter months, and so the lighter shades of the backgrounds complementing colourful blossoms are to take over in summer. Every warm season is always accompanied by the flower power in the designer fashion industry, and in 2020, when many dipped gardening and growing their own flowers, the florals will be stronger than ever.

Shorts

What summer wardrobe is complete with no shorts? In 2020, the shorts you want to have are the Bermudas, a short trend form the 80s. They are great in every way possible – comfortable, cheerful and tend to make the legs appear slimmer. If funky jazzy prints are not your cup of tea, in 2020 this cut is available in leather and pleather – look around Kture and you will find plenty of options. Pair up with a white tee and sandals for an effortless yet effective summer look.

Polka Dots

We have predicted back in November this trend is coming back – and we were right. The summer of 2020 is the very period the world needs to find joy and motivation to keep on going, to embrace the world that will never be the same and to carry on no matter what. Even in the darkest time, we can find small things to cheer us up. And nothing is as cheerful as a polka dot print.

Statement Accessories

Many of us have experimented in the lockdown with brave clothing and accessories combos. Summer 2020 is when the world of designer fashion is nudging you to bring the said experiments outside. Statement hates, silky scarves and shell jewellery are what we foresee being a particularly big hit this summer. Why not starting shopping on Kture now?

The lockdown might have put the world of designer fashion in a state of chaos, much like every other sphere of our lives. However, with the positive prognosis and the lift of the lockdown finally visible in the horizon, it is time to get your wardrobe ready to go outside. Need a hand? Kture is here for you.
