It may be hard to say goodbye to all the good times we had in 2019, but it'll be less hard to wave away the trends of 2019. I mean, they were so last year! True, some of our faves will inevitably stick around, but here are 16 styles that will give your closet the freshness and vibrancy it deserves in 2020. New decade, new you!

By the way, if you want to get specific about which trends to wear in spring 2020, which is JUST around the corner, look no further than our spring 2020 fashion trends post and our shoe and bag trends posts!

Puffy Sleeves


For the romantic at heart, voluminous, dramatic sleeves dominated the runways of Carolina Herrera, Brock Collection, Emilia Wickstead, Simone Rocha, and many more. So when you just need a little extra oomph in your life, focus on your sleeves, dahling. Dhs149 on Bershka.

Polka Dots

A classic print that will be around forever, seen on the catwalks of Balenciaga, Balmain, and Dries Van Noten. For those who like patterns but don’t want anything too out there, dots are definitely the way to go. Dhs199 on Zara.

All the Pleats

Pleats came in hot this season, shown at Pyer Moss, Iseey Miyake, Christopher John Rogers, and Chloe. Wear ’em all 2020 and watch the “OMG, where'd you get that?” comments roll in. Dhs159 on Asos.

Statement Trench Coats

New decade, new take on a classic with the reworked trench coat, demonstrated on the runways of Burberry, Gabriela Hearst, and JW Anderson. Mix things up this year with a style that’s like the old one, just new and improved. Dhs504 on Asod.

Buttercup Yellow

There are so many colors to stock up on in 2020, but this pastel shade of yellow is one you don’t want to miss (and a personal favourite). Found on the Jacquemus, Nina Ricci, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Victoria Beckham runways, it’s the kind of color that brightens up any day—a walking ray of sunshine! Dhs415 on Revolve.

Utility Jumpsuits

The best part about jumpsuits is that all the work that goes into planning an outfit is already done for you. Brands like Zimmermann, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jonathan Simkhai, and many others made our lives so much easier with these one-stop-shop looks for 2020. Work smarter, not harder, in the coming year.

Bemuda Shorts

Take cues from Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, and Alberta Ferretti with this style of short that you will want to wear all the time. They’re essentially the comfy boyfriend-fit of the shorts world. Dhs169 on Zara.
