Must Haves For Summer 2020 - Welcome Summer In Style.
Welcome summer in style. Break out the bikinis and sundresses but get ready for nostalgic trends and the ultimate in wearable and innovative. Read on for our industry insight on the styles you should be paying attention to so you can be the hottest ticket for the season.
Love for tie-dye is far from over and is leaning further into its West Coast roots. From Hawaiian shirts to bucket hats, swimsuits to racerback tank tops, if it’s tie-dye, it’s hip. Top off the look with denim cut-offs and old-school sneakers to capture the California Cool vibe.
Transformed from beach basic, shell studs, charms, and pendants are the coveted accessory this summer and the trend has grown to include pearls, stones and beads. Souvenir jewelry is an elevated take on the jewelry finds one would snag at a one of a kind local shop.
When it comes to summer, we immediately think of straw and crochet bags. A versatile summer staple, they evoke a vacation mood, even while using them in the city. The craftwork of a variety of woven textiles is trending in bags.
Modern Tea Dresses
A retro-inspired style, the long and delicate draping of the modern tea dress is the silhouette of summer. Accompanied by draping, wrapping, ties and knots to achieve a soft, sophisticated look, the vintage look in high-shine silks and satins creates daytime splendor. This trend is flattering and a great length. Showing off a little ankle, but still retaining a hint of mystery.
When it comes to sunglasses, big is back with an athletic twist this season. Think ‘90s sport with a futuristic take and the bigger, the better. If you're feeling adventurous, go full color, or tone it down with geometric black shades.
Practicality is a must for summer. Lightweight layers are ideal for hot days. Linens, khaki, as well as the cargo pants and Bermuda shorts, are the go-to this summer. You read that right, cargo pants are back. If you prefer the one-piece option, boiler suits are efficient and stylish.
Square Toe Sandals
Slender straps balanced with a block heel, and square toes are a summer favorite. The clean, geometric shape makes the shoe style modern and they beautifully toughen up a feminine dress.
