10 Wearable Summer 2020 Fashion Trends

wearable-summer-2020-fashion-trends

Hey what’s up, what’s up, what’s up?! It was a hell of a week, with everything going on in the U.S. However, I am very encouraged by the movement, dialogue and protests and I’m optimistic that change will come. Black lives matter and we all have to do what we can to fight racism however we can. Today’s blog post was a great distraction and I’m so glad to share these 10 wearable Summer 2020 fashion trends.

Whenever I do any trends posts, I do a lot of research but more importantly, I’m all about wearable pieces. There are pieces that look great on the runway but don’t translate into wearable, everyday looks. I always have an eye out for what everyday women like us can wear. Here are my 10 picks for the Summer. Check them out and let me know what you think!

1. Pink and orange

  • Pink and orange may not seem like the most logical pairing but the runways were filled with lots of pretty looks.
  • You can either pair a top and bottom combining both colors or you can go the easier route: find a print with both colors.
  • This color combo looks great paired with metallics or neutrals to balance the bright colors.
  • Some ideas:
    • Try a pair of orange pants and combine with a pink dress or top.
    • Opt for other pink bottoms such as a skirt or shorts and pair with an orange top and vice versa.
    • You can also wear an orange dress and pair with pink shoes or vice versa.
    • There are also dresses or tops that already have both colors, like an ombre or tie-dye dress or prints like a tropical or floral print.
    • Of course, accessories are another quick win where you can pair an orange necklace with a pink outfit or vice versa.

2. Bermuda shorts

  • Bermuda shorts have always been one of my faves because they can easily be dressed up or down and come in different options from denim to stripes and in-between.
  • The Spring and Summer 2020 runways featured various Bermuda looks, especially Bermuda shorts suits.
  • But not to worry, even though we’re not back to the usual dressing up for work, there are lots of cute informal looks you can rock this Summer.
  • Pair with slides, wrap sandals, wedges, mules or sneakers.
  • For date night or a girls night in, pair with heels.

3. Sheer overlays

  • Sheer overlays or layers are a cute and sexy Summer trend.
  • What’s great is they’re versatile and can be dressed up or down.
  • The options are endless:
    • You can layer over jeans and a tank.
    • Pair with shorts or layer over a jumpsuit.
    • Layer over or under a fitted dress.
    • For a dressed down look, opt for sneakers, flats of any kind [sandals, slides, mules] or cute sandals.
    • Boots are also a hot item this Summer so you can pair with boots for a 90’s throw back.

4. Chartreuse

  • Chartreuse is one of those fun colors that definitely catches the eye! It’s 50% green and 50% yellow so it’s a combo color.
  • Chartreuse has been having a moment since last year and is once again, one of the colors of the season this year.
  • According to Canva, it’s a color that symbolizes healing and a healthy lifestyle. It also combines the vitality of green with the optimism of yellow.
  • See below for ideas about colors to pair it with. Try other colors that go with green and yellow, like red. Softer colors like shades of blue and grey or neutrals and metallics.

  • Neon colors continue to be in style too and they’re a great way to brighten up any look.
  • Try bright tops paired with shorts or a cute neon maxi, midi or mini dress or skirt.
  • Perhaps the easiest option is opting for neon accessories like earrings or a statement belt.
  • Shoes also add a nice pop so consider a pair of flats or open toe mules.
