Sun gloves shopping online? No outfit is complete without the right accessories, and bags with ample storage were on generous display at September’s Fashion Weeks. However, some were admittedly more practical than others. The transparency of some of Philip Lim and Stella McCartney’s designs (below) would offer little privacy, for example. And there’s a good chance your possessions would fall out of the giant holes in the Off-White bag, but never mind because at least you’d look extremely fashionable as it was happening. “For those who prefer practicality over the micro trends, it’s finally time to retire 2019’s itty-bitty-it-bags that didn’t fit anything to begin with,” wrote Elle’s Justine Carreon. “Think big. Bottega Veneta and Off-White are ushering in XXL editions large enough to fit all of your life’s problems.
The colour of the season? These days, there’s never really just one. There is a consensus, however, on look-at-me colour – and it’s on acid. Valentino led the neon explosion, with a series of looks in Stabilo green, fuchsia and yellow; Christopher Kane, a longtime proponent of neon (“I love neon – it’s so man-made and loud and obnoxious,” he once told Vogue) turned out bright yellow, orange and pink lace looks that adhered to his modern mantra of “more joy”; and even Rei Kawakubo turned to neon pink in preparation for her take on Orlando (she’s designing the costumes for Olga Neuwirth’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel, opening at the Vienna State Opera in December 2019). Go glow.
If you’re more of a “limbs out” kind of gal, then this next take on the suit is for you. Remember Bermuda shorts? Well, they are back and were spotted all over the runways showcasing a more casual take on the business-ready trend. Similar to vests, we saw longer shorts of all kinds appear on the runway as a trend on their own, further proving the importance of the shorts movement this spring. From Tibi’s cool-girl take to Givenchy’s office- and night out–ready ensemble, this is one major trend to watch this season. The addition of a tailored waistcoat is the spring 2020 update we were looking for amid the recurring suiting trend. We also saw these tailored vests make a strong name for themselves as an individual trend (so be sure to keep an eye out for them), but it was the three-piece suit that stood out the most. Investing in at least one three-piece suit will prove to be more beneficial to your spring wardrobe than you might think. We promise—once you open your closet and find sleek trousers, a tailored blazer, and a trendy vest, you’ll be writing us a thank-you note.
