Wow, I can’t believe it’s already time for another of my trends posts! So twice a year I put together a post looking into the latest trends for the upcoming season. We’ll look at an overview, colours, trends, runway inspiration and a few sewing patterns. Usually, after I’ve prepared these posts I feel so enthusiastic to get sewing like crazy. And without further ado, let’s take a look at what’s in store for us and get some sewing inspiration from the Spring trends 2020.
(PS my lovely readers from the Southern hemisphere can check out this post of Autumn/Winter trends)
Sewing Inspiration From Spring Trends 2020: Overview
We’re still carrying on with the emphasis on individual eclectic style and of creative dressing. According to the trends researchers, rather than one or two specific trends, there’s also a stronger move towards wearability and longevity alongside sustainability.
A lot of the colours featured are pretty bright and there is quite a sense of fun and optimism in some of the runway offerings. Tailoring is big news and so are classic wardrobe items in general. Various areas of the body are being highlighted, particularly legs (shorts) and smaller areas exposed by cut-outs.
Pantone colours for Spring 2020
Several colours from the Pantone range come from the red and blue family and the colour of the season is ‘Classic Blue’ but let’s take a look at the full palettes… This time around I’ve got the range of Pantone colours from both London and New York Fashion weeks to show you…
First off, the New York colours. There’s a mix of traditional shades and also energetic bold colours.
Next are the London fashion week colours. These are equally bold and include some classic tones too…
Let me know in comments which colours you like the look of. My faves are Coral Pink, Cinnamon Stick, Chive, Lark and Faded Denim from the New York colours and from the London colours I like Bossa Nova, Rose Brown, Storm and Blush Beauty.
