My favorite part about starting a new year or season is getting my hands on the latest trends. However, fashion moves at such a rapid pace that it can be hard to keep up. Although trends start on the runways, I’m constantly paying attention to what the major street style stars are wearing outside the shows. I also look to my favorite celebrities and stylists on Instagram for style inspiration – and to see what types of looks they’re coming up with next. This year, I noticed that there are a lot of wearable trends that you can incorporate into your wardrobe now. If you want a head start on the biggest 2020 fashion trends, keep scrolling for my favorites!

The power dressing trend has been going on strong for several seasons now and it’ll continue far into 2020 with oversized blazers being the highlight piece. Blazers are one of my favorite layering pieces so it felt very natural to add an oversized silhouette to my collection. They’re perfect for balancing out skinny jeans or leggings.

Wide Leg Pants
Tailored pieces are also going to be everywhere, and exaggerated proportions seem to be leading the way. My favorite way to rock the trend is by wearing floor-sweeping, wide leg pants. They look so chic with a pair of heels and will make your legs seem miles long. Pair yours with a graphic tee for an effortless weekend outfit or a lace top for your next going out look.

Leather is not a new trend by any means, but it’s going to be huge this year in a different way. You can expect to see tons of leather pieces in lighter tones like brown and cream, which feel softer and more appropriate for the warmer seasons. I’ve already picked up these faux leather pants from Zara and have been wearing them on repeat.

Openwork sweaters offer a nice change from your basic knits. And since they tend to be lighter, you can transition them from winter to spring. I’m currently obsessing over openwork knits with puffed shoulders and billowy sleeves. I just love how they elevate denim and other casual pieces.

Lingerie-inspired clothing definitely ruled the runways last fall. We saw it in everything from sheer tops and dresses to deep thigh slits, but my favorite designs included corsets and bustiers. This year’s offerings are so good because they’re not too revealing yet still feminine. You can easily style a corset or bustier with high-waisted trousers and a sheer bodysuit. If you need more coverage, you can also layer an oversized blazer on top.

I love trends that offer easy outfit solutions for days when I’m not sure what to wear but still want to look chic. And this season, it’s all about the boiler suit. It’s basically a jumpsuit with a utilitarian vibe that feels very casual, cool but elevated. You can easily dress it up with accessories that you already own – like classic pumps, a structured bag and sunglasses.

Head to toe leather is another one of my top trends of 2020. I’m loving the polished, sleek vibe of pairing leather tops with leather pants and tall boots. However, if leather on leather is too strong for your taste, you can always mix in softer knit textures like I often do to break it up.
