Spring / Summer 2020 ... A New Decade of Fashion

What’s trending in fashion isn’t as important as what looks good on you. The trend will soon be over, but your best style lines, designs, and textures won’t be.

This season: Classics With a ModernTwiston

COLOR: Fabulous new colors for 2020

Orange and orange-reds are quite noticeable. Papaya and cantaloupe-like yellow oranges. Southwest pottery shades are more subtle versions of the orange family. Corals are the lighter, fresh hues of orange.

Rosy pinks, deep to soft. The blush tones are a neutral+ for Springs and should be worn to the outside as a jacket, cardigan, or pant. It could also peek out from a more colorful top.

Many blues…bright, soft, and deep to navy.

Basket-colored neutral beiges like rattan. Khaki and greige hues which are a warm brown-grey. Neutral + murky yellow-greens, referred to as bay leaf, tarragon, or rosemary.


DESIGNFlorals, geometrics, color!

Florals always lead the way into Spring. Spirited blooms are at the forefront. (Beware, as there are many that should be on wallpaper, not people.)

Stripes, both classic and abstract, almost like brush strokes.Bold to narrow is the scale choice.

The small, bright florals are for the Spring Harmony. The tropical, palm and floral themes are for Falls, and sometimes for Winters, if stylized and white is present. Falls, remember to look for low contrast in prints and no white. Springs could enjoy the smaller tropical Hibiscus.

Checks and plaids are offered in small to large scale and mostly on the lighter colors side.

Whimsical Spring Harmony prints. Always the polka dots; be careful, some are way too big. The best polka dot uses a color background with white dots.

Graphic-art geometrics in new shapes. Many are larger in scale, but there are smaller prints that could work for Springs.

Tie-dye designs with a new geometric effect. Angular patchwork designs.

Leopard prints work best when they have a low contrast, giving an over-all textural look. Small, contrasting cheetah prints are OK for Springs on shoes or belts.


Having reversible colors and/or designs are new.

UPF sun protection, moisture wicking and fade resisting fabrics.

Embroidered cottons, eyelet, denim, knits; also on shoes and other accessories.

Oxford and blue chambray cottons, knits, lace, some combined with satin for a dressy effect.

Sparkling sequins matching the color of the fabric and sprinkled about, rather than entirely covering it.


STYLE Fresh, easy style for Spring 2020

Go with the flow and have some fun with easy shapes, vibrant prints, and happy colors.


Easy, Flowing style in tops & blouses

The flowing styles continue. If your figure goes in at the waist, no matter your size, always choose skim-the-body shapes, not overly loose.
