Comments Off on The New Old-Fashioned: Gingham!

Gingham has been around for centuries and became an iconic Americana pattern after Dorothy sported it in The Wizard of Oz. The preppy print seems to come back around every spring/summer season, but this year designers are using bold and popping colors to make it a new wardrobe eye-catcher. In addition to the bright colors, designers are using structured and power-forward silhouettes to further reinvent the head-to-toe gingham look. Scroll through our favorite runway looks below.

With much of the world currently stuck at home with nowhere to go to, we are imagining a place far, far away where we can leave our worries behind – our own little tropical paradise. The paradise theme was one of the Spring/Summer 2020 trends that seems especially relevant now, and was embraced by fashion’s biggest designer houses, including Versace, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and Jeremy Scott. Their runway looks showed an array of tropical and botanical prints in all sorts of colors, leaving us with happy, positive feelings that we’re attempting to recreate now, in hopes of more serene and lovely days ahead. Until then, let these styles be your inspo for your next vacation (whenever it may be), or achieve an at-home staycation chill vibe with a take on one of these looks.

With more than half of Americans under a “stay at home” order, athleisure fashion by way of sweats has returned as the steady choice for most. In recent years, fashion saw a rise in the hangout-meets-exercise gear trend due to changing consumer behaviors, and now in these uncertain times, values and priorities have again shifted from maximum effort to staying comfortable while remaining out of the public eye. The changes can also be seen on runways. Designers like Balenciaga, Tommy Hilfiger, Iceberg and House of Holland have featured sweats in their newest spring/summer 2020 collection. Below are our favorite leisurewear looks.

With elements such as fringe, holsters, and cow prints on everything from western shirts to prairie dresses, designers were riding the western wear wave for their shows, and both low and high retailers are now offering up the idea. Whether going for a head-to-toe cowgirl vibe or just incorporating a piece into a standard outfit, there are lots of ways to giddy up.
