Although we are still in the 20s, the teen years are gone and the 2020 decade has started. Just as we embrace the new fashions, we bid farewell to the ones about to become out-dated.
Here are few trends that will die out completely in 2020 to be replaced by some new ones.
OUT: Dad Sneakers
IN: Retro Sneakers
Clunky “dad” sneakers had a good run, but we’re sensing that the huge trend is finally starting to cool off. As for what’s replacing them? Retro sneakers, especially classic styles that have longevity, are becoming increasingly popular among celebs and fashion girls alike.
OUT: Cropped Jeans
IN: Longer Hemlines
Cropped jeans look great, but this trend is already fading out. As we move into 2020, the biggest denim style will be full-length hems that look especially good worn with a bit of a heel.
IN: Neutral Tones
Admittedly, neon hues were intimidating and hard to style, so we’re not surprised that the bright colors didn’t have a huge lifespan. Shades of beige, cream, and tan have completely taken over by now, and “boring” as they may seem, they make for some beautifully elevated ensembles.
OUT: Dainty Jewelry Stacks
IN: Substantial Chunky Pieces
Gone are the days of wearing a zillion dainty necklaces and rings stacked on top of each other. Now, you’ll find fashion girls going for just a few statement jewelry pieces, such as a chain-link necklace or sculptural earrings. Fashion girls are fully embracing chunky earrings to add a little extra oomph to their look.
OUT: Sock Boots
IN: Knee-High Boots
You’d have to be living under a rock not to notice that knee-high boots are pretty much everywhere. Whether heeled or flat, finished in animal print or plain, they’re completely dominating right now, and fashion designers predict they’ll continue to do so well into next year. The one boot style we’re not expecting to last into 2020 is Sock boots. The ankle-clinging style is one that will be seen less and less of.
OUT: PVC Bags
IN: Leather and Croc-Effect Bags
As with a lot of the trends on this list, classic is the keyword here. All the bags of the moment share one thing in common: They’ll still be in style years from now thanks to sleek leather and timeless croc-effect finishing. We couldn’t really say the same of see-through PVC bags, as fun as they were.
