2020 Fashion Trends - A New Decade

2020 Fashion Trends - A New Decade

A new decade, but fashion trends for 2020 are more of your vintage favorites going as far back as the ’70s.  If you aren’t the vintage type, there are many modern styles sticking around so you’ll have fun updating your closet for spring.  Read on to learn about 2020’s hottest fashion throwbacks.

Flare Jeans are still a hot ticket and now we are seeing full-fledged Bell Bottoms.  Rock them with platform heels and a crop top. 

Platform Heels and Chunky Soles are all the rage with everything from romantic summer dresses and short shorts.

Ankle Chains make a comeback but this time around its about flashing gold and silver statement pieces.  Check out shoes that have the bling built into the ankle strap for instant style.

Bra Tops steal some of the limelight away from Crop Tops this season.  Paired with high waisted skirts or pants, you’re all set for spring and summer.

Crochet pieces in bright bold colors.  Not unlike Grandma’s doilies, but with a cool modern spin for skirts, tops and dresses.

Puffed Sleeves will stick around.  Pair them with some skinny jeans to balance the retro look.

Fringed skirts make a flirty statement.  To avoid the cowgirl look wear them with an oversized sweater and flats.

Hot Pants and Bermuda Shorts – A sassy look for evening or a new twist on business casual, shorts are an item this year.  Slick black stockings with hot pants take the look more places.  Paired with a blazer and sneakers, Bermuda shorts go nine to five.

Polka Dots on a maxi, mini, lacey or not, the dot is in the driver’s seat this season.  Big and bold, small and cute, polka dots are a 2020 fashion staple.

The Disco Collar is back and is as swanky as ever.  The updated super collar for jackets, button-downs and coats are seen with contrasting colors, so the look stands out.

Denim Dresses stay strong and are the perfect pairing for platform heels and big hair.

Bigger Hoop Earrings, Chunkier Necklaces and Pearls are the jewelry trends to look for this season.

Have fun taking your trip back in time with 2020’s fashion trends.

New Year, New You

New Year, New You

One of the most exciting things about a new year is that it is a chance to start over, a chance to embrace a new you.  There are a lot of ways to do that.  Your way will look different than your friend’s way.  The important thing is that it suits you and will help you feel good about yourself.  When you feel good about yourself, you look good.  Instead of trying to make a lot of big changes, choose some small ones that you can achieve easily enough so that you accumulate successes that motivate you to do more.  Check out these ideas:

A Gift For Yourself – Something just for you, whether that be a new hairstyle, facial, or massage.  We all know how good it feels to pamper ourselves a little and what better way to start a new year.

Do Random Acts Of Kindness As Often As possible - There are countless ways to brighten someone’s day:  give compliments, smile, pick up trash, help a senior citizen find their car, give your server a generous tip…

Spring Clean Early – Tidying up your room, the house, your closet, or your car all contribute to a feeling of wellbeing and calm.  Start the new year off neat and organized.

Try A New Thing Once A Month – These can be as big as planning a camping trip or as small as trying a new kind of food.  You decide how you want to expand your horizons and make it happen.  You could get a friend to sign up for the skydiving class with you.

Improve Your Sleep Habits – It’s well known that most people don’t sleep enough.  Not only is this a health hazard but being tired steals away some of the joy out of your day. 

Redecorate A Little Or A Lot – Rearrange the furniture for a new look, add a jazzy throw pillow or blanket, fresh flowers or a new coat of paint.  Sprucing up our external environment spruces up the internal as well.

Tell One Person Each Week That You Love Them – Make a promise to share how much you care for and are grateful for the people that you have in your life.  

Buy A Plant – Taking care of and nurturing a plant nourishes your emotions, in addition to improving the air quality of your space.

Commit To Exercise – This doesn’t have to mean a gym membership.  Taking the stairs, parking farther away, walking the dog an extra block are all small ways to incorporate more movement into your routine.  The benefits of exercise for your physical and emotional health are well documented.

A new year, a new you is just around the corner.  Best wishes to you for a delightful year.
