It’s scary to think about how fast the new year is approaching! It’s almost as if we only started celebrating neon shades and boiler suits yesterday, and now the second decade of the century is looming over us. A new year brings new fashion, and so we are going to have a look at the latest in luxury as to start mapping out our dressing up plans for a successful beginning to 2020.
We have thoroughly analysed runway photos from the 2020 spring/summer collections. However, we are painfully aware the new year starts in the middle of the coldest months, therefore we paid extra mind to which of those latest in luxury additions can cooperate with the frosty weather outside. There are plenty of patterns we have identified, and are here to present you with the hottest outfit ideas to liven up your wardrobe. New year - new you!
No, the latest in luxury has nothing to do with vampires or the movies. However,It is something much, much better. There’s never been an actual middle ground between night and day looks - but there will be in 2020, and that is *the look*. Part glam, part casual. You can wear it to the office just as well as you can wear it for a night out.
For inspiration, we suggest you check the S/S 20 images of Dries Van Noten. Essentially, carry a little bit of party wherever you go - a chunky jumper with a metallic ruffle skirt, paired with knee-high boots and a bow hair clip is one of our go-to’s.
Cover The Knees
Our last point smoothly flows into the second one - knee-high boots. First of all, they have never truly gone out of fashion, therefore we probably cannot count them as the latest in luxury when we speak of the hype. However, what is new is the way we style them. The look you want to adopt in 2020 is the one where the hem of the skirt or structured shorts meets the top of your boots at the knee - very 1980!
The options are endless when going for this particular look. The variety of prints and colours out there is limitless, leaving it all up to your creativity. Animal-print boots with long, tailored black shorts, or maybe a tiered skirt with a ruffled blouse, paired with white boots - honestly, you can go all out and rock the outfit effortlessly.
Monochrome outfits are already big, and they are predicted to explode in 2020. So, what is the novelty? Well, it’s the colour preference for this trend. The hottest look of the year will all be in greyscale. While this may sound dull to some, given the gloomy reputation grey apparel seems to have, we promise this is the outfit you want to place your bets on.
To reassure our statement, we advise taking a closer look at the minimalistic approach of Prada, featuring one shade as each block of the outfit. Not convinced yet? Despite grey commonly misconstrued as a boring colour with no variety, we ensure you, it has many different tones — and each tone has even more shades. Layering is the key when nailing this latest in luxury style.
Emphasis On Waist
Definition of a waistline has been somewhat of a hype for a while now. But 2020 has a new take on it. If anything, it doesn’t need to be defined but rather…Redefined. The latest in luxury is the trend of experimenting with the body’s horizontal line, and we have already seen so many great results. An exaggeratedly dropped waist, high-waisted skirts from Molly Goddard, waist corsets and many, many more.
It is very easy to play with this runway look in everyday life - most likely, you already own the garments needed. Just like with the grey fashion trend, the trick is layering. For example, a long jumper over a midi skirt or a cropped cardigan thrown atop of a puffy dress will surely create an impression of a redefined waist. Volumes, shapes, colour-blocking - use all three to achieve different results and create an authentic take on this look.
The tour of popularity is not over for beige, but the evolution has hit it pretty hard. Cream and oatmeal colours are not going away, but it’d be more accurate to say they are going to new places. Usually, we see these tones as a definition of minimalism, but the latest in luxury trends are changing the rules. In 2020, minimalist will meet the maximalist.
Good old beige trousers will look best paired with rainbow knits or wild waistcoats, anything from neon pink zebra print to turquoise leather with red frills. As they say - opposites attract.
At Kture, we pride ourselves being ahead of the curve and we happily share our knowledge with you. Are you ready to greet 2020 in all the latest in luxury? Because we have all you need - just take a look around the site.
