While flowers blooming and birds chirping are usually the first indications that spring is here, in the fashion industry we use a slightly different metric. The arrival of new spring collections is what signals the end of winter for fashion editors, as brightly coloured skirts and sleeveless dresses begin appearing online.
We saw several trends emerge from the S/S 20 runways, including crochet dresses and those that featured unique cutouts. While more wearable staples including puff-sleeve dresses, polka-dot dresses and polo-neck dresses were equally as popular. Minimalism reigned again thanks to Bottega Veneta, while maximalists were accounted for with voluminous tiered dresses which appeared at Christopher Kane and Molly Goddard.
Interestingly enough, several of the season’s biggest dress trends are often used in conjunction with each other. For example, Asceno has released a tiered dress with polka dots on it, while Ephemerapuff-sleeve dress also featured cutouts. It’s a have your cake and eat it too, kind of situation this spring.
