Topshop’s new bohemian trend ‘Pretty, Cool’ takes cue from LA’s coolest, who have effortless warm weather dressing down to a tee. The capsule is all about pairing laid-back pieces and simple silhouettes with denim layers and beachy accessories. To help you nail the styling, we’ve put together five outfits that each focus on one key aspect of the trend. Take a look…
- The relaxed denim…
Nothing says laid-back style quite like light-wash denim so, of course, it’s absolutely essential to achieving the effortless LA look. Double up by wearing a pair of straight-leg jeans with a cropped denim jacket. Then, keep the rest simple and sweet with a blush Bardot top and accessories that have a summery feel.
- The light layer…
As the temperatures start to pick up, you’ll no longer have to turn to your heavy winter coats. However, you’ll still be needing something to keep you warm throughout transition season and a light cardigan is the perfect piece. Style a cami or chilled T-shirt with a floaty midi skirt, then layer a fluffy cardigan over the top.
- The ditsy mini dress…
With their pretty prints, sweet ruffles and outfit all-in-one style, floral dresses are a bohemian wardrobe essential for spring. For now, pick a long sleeved number and layer with a cool motif tee that you can tie in a knot at the front. Later on, all you’ll need is a lightweight denim jacket and you’ll be good to go.
- The picnic print…
Gingham is the ultimate summer print that’s both pretty and cool, so it’s a key pattern to incorporate into your new season wardrobe. Channel the ’70s bohemian vibes by styling a gingham blouse with a pair of slightly flared jeans and some sleek mules. To finish, tie the outfit together with a crisp white jacket and some monochrome add ons.
- The effortless silhouette…
Keeping things simple and relaxed is is crucial to nailing this trend so, even when you’re dressing up, go for a slip in a loose-fitting silhouette. Accessorise with delicate gold accents and, if you want to add a pop of colour, pick some pink mules.
As much as I can, I try to shop for vintage pieces. I find that wearing vintage allows me to wear something special that’s not circulating in fashion at the moment and also track down items I may have missed out on the first time around, like a pair of Prada mules I recently ordered and can’t stop wearing. I also think vintage is a great way to support sustainable fashion and give older items a new life. Plus, vintage can often be a much more affordable way to buy designer pieces so is always a great place to start for anyone on a budget.
But just because you’re wearing vintage items, it doesn’t mean that you still can’t wear the current trends. Here, I’m bringing you 6 major spring trends and the under-$250 pieces that tap into them. With finds like a pastel blue Jacquemus dress to a pinstriped Jil Sander pantsuit to a Givenchy chain link necklace (and more), these are too good to pass up on. Ahead, shop my edit.

No seriously, whether you’re ready or not, this micro-trend is swiftly marking its territory as one of the hottest styles to try this spring and summer season. The trend we speak of is better seen than described, but if we had to try it’s basically any article of clothing that slinkily ties and wraps around a bare midriff. Sexy, no? These wraparound ties can be connected to a top, skirt, or even swimwear which we’re anticipating seeing a lot more of come summer 2020.
This trend was unsurprisingly very prevalent in the ’90s (which you can see via the Prada F/W 92 runway image below) when skin-baring silhouettes were pretty much all anyone cared about. As we encroach on warmer weather, we’re predicting that this micro-trend is about to make it big once again in this decade. Influencers have already started wearing it and retailers are already hopping on board. If you ask me, this is the beginning of a major trend in the making.
If you’re feeling hesitant to try this one out, we don’t blame you—wearing little strings tied around your bare midriff is pretty daring. However, after taking a look at all the ways It girls are already sporting the risky trend, you might be convinced. Scroll down to observe this trend on the runway, on Instagram, and shop a wide selection of our favorite items so you too can don style.
On the runway:
Spotted on the runway not only this season but also way back when on the spring 1992 Prada runway, was this tied-up waist micro-trend. Considering the resurgence of the ’90s (yet again) this year, the resurfacing of a trend like this doesn’t feel far off at all. But let it be known—Prada did it first.

Naturally, some of the industry’s leading ladies have already been dabbling in the trend via crop tops, skirts, and swimsuits. Already, the array of styling techniques is convincing us that this trend is way more versatile than we initially anticipated.

While we’re still on the brink of spring, I’m mentally already fast-forwarding to summer. Don’t get me wrong, I love to layer up in coats and boots but I pretty much live for warm weather style, so summer is where my wardrobe really shines. After all, I grew up in Arizona and live in L.A., so feel like I’ve become somewhat of an expert when it comes to dressing for summer. So, which trends are on my radar and which pieces do I think will be huge in a few months?
Looking to the runways and fashion insiders, it’s clear that there are a number of trends that will be big this summer. From tropical prints and bold colors to chain heels and exposed bras (and plenty more), there are some major summer trends destined for all of our wardrobes once the warm weather hits. Ahead, see the 8 summer trends I’m predicting are about to blow up and shop my edit.
With bold jungle prints spotted on the S/S 20 runways like Versace, the tropical prints are poised to be everywhere this summer. We’ll be seeing it as a strong trend in swimwear, as well as vacation clothing.

Just buttoned at the middle—a great styling trick to copy.
The perfect one-piece.
Nouveau aviator sunglasses
Sure, aviator sunglasses have been around forever, but this summer we’ll be seeing updated takes on the classic. Bottega Veneta’s sleek hexagonal pair have already been popular with celebs like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but we’re also seeing other brands coming out with their own take on the reinvented aviator.
We can thank Bottega Veneta for putting this trend on the map.
This shape feels very forward.
We’re already seeing bra tops emerge as a huge trend for 2020 but it will only be picking up steam as we get closer to summer. My favorite way to style them? Underneath a blazer as seen here from Staud.
Pull this off for the evening with a satin set like this.
A must-buy in my opinion.
Heels with chains
Chain-embellished heels are the shoe trend that will dominate 2020. Last summer, everyone was pairing anklets with heels so think of this as a new way breathing life into that trend.
Wow, these are truly a work of art.
For a night out.
Porte & Paire nails the latest trends at a great price point.
Get ready for big punches of color with lots of hues that scream fun. I’m especially drawn to bold pinks as well as sunny shades like yellow and orange.

Suiting is one of the biggest trends of 2020, period, so you better believe that there will be a way everyone will wear suits this summer. Look no further than the short suit. This summer, style yours with a bra top and chain heels.

If it seems like clothing and accessories get more and more expensive, you’re certainly not wrong. That said, there are more affordable brands than ever to shop, many of which focus the bulk of their inventory on trend-driven pieces. Bonus: This spring, many of the biggest trends are just inherently cheap, e.g., crew socks, baseball caps, and tube tops, so it’s easier than ever to look “trendy” without spending your entire paycheck in one sitting.
Between brands like Topshop, Madewell, Nike, and Mango, I unearthed tons of cheap pieces that represent 12 of the season’s biggest trends. And so you get more bang for your buck, I selected the pieces within each category that are the most timeless because you never know when a trend is going to turn into a wardrobe staple.

Long Denim Skirts
Yours truly bought this recently.
Might as well get a black one too…
If they look like sneakers that were worn in the ’70s or ’80s, they’re cool now.
Who doesn’t love a good one-and-done outfit in a timeless print?
Polka dots are always a thing, but more than ever this season.
The secret to pulling off long shorts is in the shoes. I recommend chunky sneakers or strappy high-heel sandals.
It’s only a matter of time before these sell out.
I love a good sleeve party.
This also comes in an ombré version, and I honestly can’t choose.
I’d wear this with a black midi dress and white sneakers (or anything else—it doesn’t get more versatile).
I can never pass up a good dad hat.
Another cute thing I recently bought (in camel).
Tip: Amazon is a vest gold mine.
Hailey Bieber would approve.
Wear these with the matching sweatshirt.
This could pass as a going-out top.
Amazon is also a cute-cardigan gold mine.
Tangerine is spring’s It color. Get ahead of it.
This tangerine tank pairs so well with denim.
Fashion girls are wearing crew socks with loafers, over leggings, with their New Balance sneakers—you name it.
Spring is almost here and we couldn’t be happier to finally wave goodbye to the cold. But, until then, we find ourselves in that tricky transitional time where it feels like it’s almost impossible to dress appropriately for the ever-changing weather. So, to inspire you to get it right, we came up with five simple ways to transition from your winter wardrobe to the new season. Clever layering is key, so keep scrolling to discover how to be prepared for anything until spring finally kicks in…
- Pair a jumper with a midi skirt
We all have at least one chunky jumper in our winter wardrobes and now it’s their time to shine. By pairing yours with a midi skirt, it should make for an outfit that’ll work in any weather – but until the sun really comes out, stick to styling it with ankle boots and always bring a hat.
- Opt for lighter outerwear
A trench coat is is the perfect outerwear option right now, as it’s lighter than a big coat but will still keep you from getting drenched on rainy days. Stick to a looks you would’ve worn in winter as well to make sure you’re keeping warm enough until spring truly arrives.
- Walk feet first into spring
Buckled boots are great for transitional weather, when it’s too warm to wear boots but too soon for sandals. It’ll add a nice nod to spring to any look and you can keep wearing them all throughout the warmer seasons to come too.
- Switch to lighter colours
Brighten up your wardrobe by moving towards lighter colours with your daily looks. We love the idea of going for a pastel-toned knit with white jeans and boots, because this combination will keep you warm but won’t feel like you’re still stuck in winter.
- Embrace spring-ready pieces
What could be a better way to start embracing spring than wearing a floral mini dress? It might be too early to wear yours on its own, but when layered over a roll neck jumper it’ll definitely work. Pair the combination with croc boots and a PU jacket to keep it weather-appropriate.
We all know how exciting street style can be, but what about the looks worn to grab a coffee or walk your dog? We looked to our favourite celebrities for inspiration that’s actually off duty and super easy to achieve and learnt that polished, elevated basics can be super chic when styled just the right way. These looks will see you through that awkward transitional phase, before we’re ready to embark on all the fun new spring fashion trends…
- Denim on the go
Running late? This look is perfect for last-minute coffee dates and running errands.
Throw an oversized jean jacket, a cap and a pair of sunglasses on top of your basic black leggings and hoodie and no one will know you didn’t actually get ready.
- Classic camel
This monochrome look is perfect for your morning coffee and croissant run. An oversized trench and matching beige trousers will look very put together, even if you didn’t really have to think about it. Finish off the outfit with some tortoiseshell accessories for that ultimate Parisian flair.
- Black basics
Blue jeans and a white top will never go out of style, but this season we’re pairing them with on-trend accessories like chunky boots and weaved cross-body bags. An oversized coat (and coffee in hand) will keep you warm while it’s still chilly out.
- Mint and mules
If the sun is out, you can finally break out your new mules and they’re the perfect addition to relaxed mid-blue flares and our wardrobe hero: the cardigan top. This look is super effortless and accessories like sunglasses, a shoulder bag and gold hoop earrings add a chic touch.
- Busy blues
If you’re looking for something a little more out there, opt for a cosy blue sweater and leather trouser combo. Pair this look with an oversized shirt-jacket, cool trainers and a cute matching mini bag. Paparazzi, look out for this one…
