However, we need to keep ourselves motivated to get through this phase.

All set to envision your post-quarantine wardrobe? Scroll through:
Give it to their versatile silhouette and the various styling options that the vests would be making a resurgence this year. With major fashion houses across the world including Celine, Saint Laurent, and Louis Vuitton introducing their own iteration of the vest on the Spring/Summer '20 runways, there is just no overlooking this trend in 2020. Plus, there are just so many ways of styling this tailored piece of clothing. Think of pairing a basic pinstripe offering with a chiffon blouse for a sharp but casual look or a double-breasted piece with coordinating trousers and a solid T-shirt for a more formal one. And also, styling a fitted vest with a pretty, billowy skirt and just that remains a lucrative option as well.
When Bermuda shorts first made an appearance on the Fall/Winter/ 2019 runways, most seemed unprepared for their revolutionary beauty and how it came out after pairing them with oversized blazers. However, the 'It' fashion girls took it to themselves to cherish the style and looks like there wouldn’t be anything more coveted in the fashion circles across the world once things get better than a structured pair of Bermuda shorts.
Swiftly after crop tops crown for the next chic fashion trend in the town, bra-top is here to set the style game of fire this summer. Nicely adopted by Dior, Giambattista Valli, Loewe, and Givenchy on the Spring/Summer'20 runway and approved by the B-town beauties alike, this trend is going to be the game-changer this summer. Right from going all unabashed and wearing it as it is to go all creative with some serious layering, this is the style that'll keep us piqued this summer. The style is already available at high-street brands like Zara and that'll give you an estimate of how big it is gonna go once everything settles down.
Once the summer gets intense, we have been contemplating dedicating them to the big-collar energy, a suiting thought for the kind of social media status that statement collars have assumed this year. While Spring 2019 was all about exaggerated sleeves, the drama this year gets translated to the collars as they swiftly take over the fashion scene worldwide. From Sonam Kapoor to Bella Hadid, oversized collars have found an easy space in the celebrity fashion arsenal. And right from exaggerated Peter Pan collars to oversized bibs, there's just so much that we can explore this summer.
Now, be it the trendy vests, or the dramatic vibe, there is a bit of retro embedded in all of the summer 2020 trends, which also is the general fashion vibe this season. However, it doesn't really get more retro than polka dots and well Carolina Herrera has already proved this with her assortment of polka dots on the Spring/Summer'20 runway. Right from subtle black and white polka dots to some exaggerated wonders, everything is game this season!
So, ladies, all set for the summery days ahead?
