ZARA:The Best Dress Trend for Anyone Who’s Indecisive, Like Me

My typical online shopping experience tends to look a little like the following: find a specific item I like, cycle through every color option it comes in, proceed to add every color or print option to my cart, then let them sit in my cart for a good few hours while I try to narrow them down to one. I like options, and being forced to make a singular decision is not one of my strong suits. All of which probably explains why I’m such a big fan of the two-tone trend. It’s fresh, it’s Princess Diana–approved, and it’s an easy solve for anyone who experiences as much indecisiveness as I do. Why settle for one color when you can have two?
The split-tone color-blocking has been a fashion week favorite the last few seasons thanks to the likes of Celine’s popular mismatched sandals and the handful of contrasting half-and-half designs that followed. But this season’s two-tone hero is clearly spring dresses. Between a classic pink-and-red pairing to more unexpected options like a green-and-black gown, the 16 bicolored dresses ahead are pure relief for anyone who has a hard time picking sides.
Take a page out of Vic Styles’s book and add some extra color to your vacation wardrobe.
The most obsolete fashion “rule” to ever exist: Black and brown can’t be worn together. Alyssa Coscarelli’s leather wrap dress proves just how wrong that is.
This dress could have looked good in either color, but I’m inclined to believe it looks so much better in both.
Even the chicest silhouettes can benefit from a two-toned makeover.

ZARA: This Once Passé Trend Is Now a Fashion-Person Staple

There was once a time when off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder tops reigned supreme in the shirting realm. Then, like many items as they travel throughout the trend cycle, they sort of fizzled out in recent seasons in favor of trendy mock-neck styles and the sort. But asymmetrical tops, in particular, are pushing their way towards the sartorial forefront again, and the chicest fashion girls are taking note. There’s nothing passé about this neckline right now.
Yep, when I scrolled through my Saved photos on IG to get some cool outfit ideas, I was delighted to uncover that quite a hefty chunk featured one-shoulder tops styled in a plethora of modern ways. I’m talking neutral bodysuits teamed with wide-leg trousers and cardigans, statement tops with jeans and bold accessories, and everything in-between.
To showcase this newer fashion-person staple even more, I rounded up some of the said ensembles I’m into featuring the asymmetric shirt front and center. And naturally, I also shopped out each inspired look as well if you’re looking to jump back on this trend wagon again.
Team a white bodysuit with trousers and a coordinating cardigan for a trendy vibe. Gold jewelry compliments the look just flawlessly.
A cropped asymmetric top is particularly cool with of-the-moment utility pants.
Elevate a one-shoulder top even more with a slouchy blazer and cool pleated pants.
An outfit featuring a black top paired with balloon-type jeans and strappy sandals is simple yet statement-making.
While the neutral tops are definitely reigning supreme, printed iterations are also having a moment worn with jeans.
Keep it chic and easy with a black asymmetric top, skinny jeans, and loafers.

ZARA:The 9-Piece 2020 Fashion-Girl Wardrobe

We at Who What Wear always have our attention focused on the next big thing in the fashion world. Right now, that means the trends that are on the horizon for spring 2020. If the emerging trends on the runways and street style scene are any indication, there is plenty to look forward to in fashion for the coming year. Which pieces are the most essential to begin investing in now, though?
Let me introduce you to our handy S/S 20 capsule wardrobe that details the biggest trends fashion insiders will adopt next year. From the new way to wear leather to the shoes that are about to explode to the jewelry trend that just got a huge upgrade, ahead, discover nine fashion must-buys to get in your closet now. Go on to see how stylish fashion girls are already wearing the pieces now, and shop our edit.
Colorful Leather
By now, it’s clear that leather looks are a permanent part of the fashion-insider wardrobe, but for spring 2020, we’ll be seeing a transition from neutrals to bold colors such as yellow and purple.
Long Shorts
We spotted long, Bermuda-style shorts all over the S/S 20 runways, from Chanel to Staud. Fashion insiders have already been wearing them, but we expect the trend to explode next year.
Chain-Strap Heels
Anklets have been popular among fashion insiders during past seasons, but now the jewelry has actually become incorporated into shoe styles with cool chain details.
Long, Flowy Dresses
Market editor Judith Jones identified long, flowy dresses as a major trend for 2020. They’ve already taken off in 2019, but there’s no doubt that this will be a defining trend in the coming year.
Vests
We saw three-piece suits everywhere on the runways, from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Marc Jacobs, and whether worn as part of a matching set or styled on their own, vests will be a wardrobe staple this spring.
This matching set will never get old for us.
Oversize Hoops
While there are plenty of jewelry trends on the horizon for 2020, oversize hoops are destined to be the most popular. They make a statement but are easy enough to incorporate into looks from day to night.
Heeled Loafers
Sure, loafers and slide versions exploded a few years ago, but now there’s a new way to wear them. Heeled styles will replace flat versions and become the go-to shoes for the office.
Lingerie-Inspired Pieces
We’ll be seeing a return to the lingerie-inspired elements in clothing across the board, from shape-defining corsets to bustier tops.
Bra Tops
In the same vein as the aforementioned lingerie-inspired pieces, bras will come into full focus as tops instead of concealed underneath clothing.

ZARA:The Non–Skinny Jean Trend the Chicest People Will Wear in the 2020s

While skinny jeans will never actually be out of style, there are a range of fresh, non-skinny silhouettes that continue to rise in popularity. Yep, we’re talking about styles like flared denim but also a recent favorite amongst the fashion and celeb world: full-length denim. This cut is in a straight fit, typically comes in a lighter wash, and bunches just slightly on top of the shoes. You may remember Hailey Bieber’s recent ensemble last month featuring the Khaite full-length jeans.

Sure, this silhouette is a far cry from the cropped skinny and straight jeans that we’ve been wearing over the last few seasons, but this is one denim style that will be that forward spin to any outfit in the 2020s. We bet the chicest people out there will give these jeans a whirl with pointed ankle boots now or low-heel strappy sandals when the temperatures start to warm up. To highlight this must-try denim trend further, we rounded up how fashion people are wearing full-length jeans now and how they turned up on the S/S 20 runways. Keep scrolling for more and to shop a few pairs as well.

ZARA:Scrunchies Are Here to Stay—Here Are the Best on the Market Now

Okay, if we’re being honest, we would have never predicted that scrunchies would be the trend to lead the ’80s back into this millennium. After all, there are so many iconic trends from the decade of electro music and permed hair. Alas, such was not the case. Instead, the fabric hair accessory—which now comes in a variety of styles, prints, and textures—has dominated as one of the must-have items in recent years, making the case for investing in hair accouterments as a whole.
Whether you’ve already embraced the scrunchie movement with open arms or you’re just now swapping out your elastic hair ties for the gentler alternative, there’s no doubt that you deserve to have the best scrunchies in your arsenal of haircare—which is why we pulled them all together in one place.
Ahead, you’ll find the coolest scrunchie trends that we won’t stop wearing. Scroll down to see them all, and then add your favorites to your cart along the way.

  1. Black
    If you’re at a loss for what type of scrunchie you want to add into your collection of hair accessories, start with a classic black style. Whether it’s a cool leather version or something that feels more whimsical like a silk organza option, there’s no going wrong here.
  2. Oversize
    Scrunchies are no new trend to the scene, but it’s large, overexaggerated styles that have been catching the attention of fashion girls everywhere. Wear one of these billowing styles to make a chic statement.
  3. Retro
    If you’re going to incorporate scrunchies into your everyday hairstyles, why not take it back to the time when they were the It accessory? Go for retro prints and colors or opt for old-school textures, like patent leather.
  4. Silk
    For those of you who want to give your hair game a luxurious touch, you won’t regret wearing an elevated silk scrunchie, which will instantly dress up your hair.
  5. Velvet
    Could there be anything more classic than a velvet scrunchie? Whether it comes with a sweet bow or a cool embellishment, this particular style is one that every fashion girl should own.

If you grew up or spent any amount of time as a consciously thinking human in the ’80s, this microtrend is about to give you all the feels—as in, all the nostalgia—good or bad. Just like the other trends reemerging from the decade right now, such as puffy sleeves and neon brights, this one is bound to be polarizing. Ready or not, metallic clothing is on the rise.

ZARA:18 Chic and Affordable Finds That Tap Into Spring’s Biggest Trends

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.
Pastel Shades
Chain Necklaces
Baseball Hats
Suiting
Leather Trousers

ZARA:The Most Wearable 2020 Ankle-Boot Trends You Need to Know—Period

Here’s a hot take for you: Ankle boots are one of—if not the—most versatile styles of footwear out there. More likely than not, you’ve had at least one classic black pair in your closet at all times, including those pointed-toe ones that go with everything you own (you know exactly which ones I’m talking about).
No matter the season, rain or shine, you know those trusted booties would never fail you. But in the chance that you’re looking to up your boot game this year, there are a few key ankle-boot styles for 2020 you should keep in mind.
Whether you’re the type of person who likes to wear sleek, polished booties with everything you own or you prefer a more casual option for your everyday affairs, these trends will suit every type of fashion girl. So as you begin to fill your closet with the biggest spring trends of 2020, kick off the new decade in peak style with the most wearable ankle-boot trends that matter for the year ahead.
Take a Hike
The hiking-inspired aesthetic, also known as “gorpcore,” has become a full-blown trend, making its way into almost every aspect of the fashion world—boots included. Opt for a pair of tough lace-up hiking-style boots to give your look an unexpected edge.
All Laced Up
Lace-up boots are nothing new, but this year’s lot features the detail on every type of silhouette ranging from combat-style boots to sleek, pointed toes. And if you want to take it up a notch, opt for a style that features cool hardware.
Heavy Tread
The heavy, lug-sole boots of the ’90s have made their way back to 2020, and we can’t get enough. This It girl–approved trend (which is reminiscent of the grunge movement) will add a unique air of toughness to even the most delicate ensembles.
If this year’s biggest ankle-boot trends have proven anything so far, it’s that this year is all about practicality. Case in point? Rain boots. Whether you’re facing a torrential downpour, a light sprinkle, or clear blue skies, these boots will look as good with a floral midi skirt as they will with a pair of jeans.
Squared Away
Square-toe sandals made a surprising return to the fashion world, eventually becoming one of the top trends among the style-obsessed. Now, square toes are coming for ankle boots. Swap out your classic pointed-toe booties for this new silhouette to give yourself a look any It girl would love.
Smitten Kitten
We can’t get enough of kitten heels, and apparently, neither can the rest of the industry. For a more comfortable alternative to your standard heeled ankle boots that look just as polished, these low-heeled booties are just what you need.

ZARA:”Ugly” Fashion Isn’t Just a Passing Trend

It feels like this year, we’ve hit peak “ugly.” Balenciaga can’t keep its chunky Triple S sneakers in stock. Long-time dad favorites like baseball caps and Birkenstocks have become the calling card of street style stars and Instagram trendsetters. With the rise of these recent ironic fashion trends presented by brands like Vetements and even Gucci, for many women today it’s cool to be uncool.

But at the root of this “ugly” wave is something bigger, at least to me. Finally women are choosing practicality over everything else. Cushioned shoes, loose streetwear, and comfortable fleeces all point to the ability for women to embrace comfort, curve-hugging be damned. To be able to spend my days running from meeting to meeting in sneakers instead of stilettos means that high fashion doesn’t have to come with a cost (pain). In a time when the daily news cycle leaves me constantly frustrated, I have little tolerance for discomfort in what I wear.

I’ve watched athleisure slowly morph, twisting its way from slinky trouser sweats toward a full embrace of “dad” fashion, and I don’t think it’s all just some passing trend. There was a time not so long ago (as my mother loves to remind me) when wearing jeans for just about anything but yardwork was disavowed. Now, while some offices require a suit, visit any tech company and employees are dressed in slouchy jeans, Patagonia jackets, and their sneakers of choice.

We can look to the prevailing popularity of footwear like Uggs, Birkenstocks, and Crocs as proof of this trend’s growth and staying power. Studies show each brand to be lucrative season over season, despite the fact that none of their shoes could be described as a particularly dainty or pretty. According to data, Birkenstocks’ revenue tripled in 2017 as compared to the year before. In a Washington Post article, Crocs CMO, Terence Reilly, notes “a resurgence” as well.

Even as an avid Birkenstock wearer myself, I was surprised to find an article from my alma mater singing the praises of Crocs pop up in my Facebook feed and another in The New Yorker outlining “the life-changing magic of clogs.” While we all may have our own self-defined wearability spectrum when it comes to the ugly trend, there’s no denying that the level of comfort offered by all of these once-derided shoes has won over many women, myself and many Who What Wear readers included.

The pendulum of fashion will continue to swing, and there may be a time in the not-so-distant future where borrowing styles from your dad is no longer preferred, but I expect fashion’s embrace of comfort to linger. I wouldn’t go so far as to directly correlate comfortable fashion choices with the rise of #MeToo or #TimesUp, but I do think that we’ve entered a time when many women feel empowered to choose self-care, and what we wear plays no small part.
