Designer Trends on the High Street | Spring Summer 2020

It's that time of the year where we begin to transform our winter wardrobe to welcome the warmer seasons.  Whilst exploring the fashion runways and magazines, I am noticing a lot of peculiar trends which are easy to manipulate into day-to-day outfits.  There are some that may seem difficult to imitate, nonetheless, I will be discussing subtle ways we can incorporate a breath of fresh air into our closet.  Usually I only discuss what was seen by designer brands during fashion week or otherwise, but this time around I will be demonstrating high street replications of these trends so it is more accessible to my readers. Let's greet the new decade with a new look!

Puffed Sleeves. Puffed sleeves are my kryptonite.  Not only are they elegant, but they can have the ability to elevate an otherwise simple look.  They are feminine and work to dress up a pair of jeans or complement an office pencil skirt.  Hence, making them perfect for various events.  

Brands: Zimmerman, Erdem, Marc Jacobs 

H and M Wide Sleeve Blouse: £12.99

Balloon Sleeved Jumper: £12.00

Broderie Anglaise.  Anyone who knows me is fully aware that my wardrobe is tainted with broderie anglaise blouses and dresses.  The classic lace texture and style is hard to miss.  Due to its evident regality and femininity, it is an obvious staple in my closet.  This summer, we will see it hitting the shelves as wrap dresses or cover ups for the beach, mini bodycons, and even embroidered on coats. 

Brands: Kate Spade, Zimmerman, Erdem

Religion Sheer Broderie Anglaise Jumpsuit: £26.00
Pretty Little Thing Broderie Anglaise Belted Shorts in Red: £11.00
Dorothy Perkins Ivory Broderie Top: £7.00
Vila Petite Blush Tilly Dress: £40.00
Not quite Broderie Anglaise but beautiful lace nonetheless

Polka dots.  Is there anything more 60s than polka dots? They are youthful and an easy pattern to pull off for those who struggle to deviate from monochrome garments.  Wear it as a skirt to really embrace the Swinging Sixties or as a blouse to inject fun yet work-wear vibes.  

Brands: Gucci, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs 

Blush Spot Print Shirred Neck Top: £15.60

H and M Dress with Smoking: £24.99

White Summer Dress/White Out. Wearing white is parallel to wearing a plain canvas. It provides room for the wearer to paint the picture they wish to illustrate to the world through accessorising or matching.  It can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. 

Brands: Valentino, Khaite

H and M Dress with Belt: £24.99
H and M Lace V Neck Dress: £24.99
Quiz White Sam Faiers Crochet Bodycon Dress: £18.49

White Textured Mini Shirt Dress: £39.00

Trench Coats.  This is a British Staple.  For that classic wardrobe, a trench coat is a sure must.  The army button detail and synched waist is projects a preppy yet put together appearance for anyone wishing to feel like luxury.  And you can do it without breaking the bank!

H and M Trench Coat: £49.99

Dorothy Perkins Camel Rain Mac: £27.50

And that's my top 5!  I absolutely love these trends and have many similar pieces already in my wardrobe.  I hope the use of high street brands has made this information far more informative than my previous blogposts about this topic.  Thank you for reading!
