With each new season comes its share of new looks. And the spring-summer collections always herald the arrival of shimmering colors and light materials.

On Fashion Week catwalks, spring/summer 2020 fashion promises to be a very good vintage. There will be colors, feathers, transparency and plunging necklines. What will be your look for spring summer?

Spring summer 2020 fashion trends are stylish and portable

There are a few pieces this spring which were favorites of last year. There are also some great classics like the overalls or the jumpsuit which have become real fashion essentials. And then, we discover some new things to spice up our summer:

1. The mini shorts

Hot pants staged a triumphant comeback on the spring 2020 runways—from itty bitty knit shorts to denim cutoffs. Whether you style them with leggings or over a mesh dress; pair them knee-high boots or pumps, rest assured that hot pants will make your legs sizzle. Balance out the ultra-short shorts with long sleeves or a jacket on top

2. The plunging neckline

We dare to reveal a maximum of tanned skin and do not hesitate to wear the plunging neckline. The necklines, more dizzying than each other, will be in abundance this season.

3. The bra top

Crop tops are no longer cutting it—the bra top has officially entered the party. From crochet iterations to a more daring sheer number, bikini dressing comes in all textures and styles. Just add a high-waisted skirt and you've got the perfect summer look. With the bra-top trend being invariably revealing, it is best to pair it more with concealing items. Some choice items include long, pleated trousers, Chesterfield coats, and high-waisted anything.

4. The puff sleeves

The balloon sleeves make themselves invariably stand out. The summer wardrobe takes a hold of oversized volumes that can't go unnoticed. This bold silhouette is going so popular this spring. Just look at how puffy they are!

5. The oversize

The oversize cut really took possession of our entire wardrobe right up to the bags with the oversize bag (the seasonal it-bag)

6. The denim

The cult denim look reveals itself in total look on the catwalks. Washed out, raw or destroyed, we love the jeans worn from head to toe. The spring collections deliver a bumper crop of blue jeans, from Bermuda shorts to ’70s kick-flares.

7. The suits

Suiting will never go out of style, but after seasons of broad shoulders, boyish silhouettes, and boxy shapes, Spring’s best suits are long and lean. With a thigh-grazing, single-button blazer and skinny flares, these mix-and-match suits channel the look of the free-spirited women’s-lib ’70s.

8. The Bermuda shorts

If the thought of hot pants in summer makes you want to go running, Bermuda shorts are there to save you the day. To freshen up your wardrobe, the designers and it girls have adopted Bermuda shorts for spring. Bermuda shorts are here to save the day. Putting a twist on the classic suit. But wearing them in corporate setting can be tricky. Pro tips: keep the colors dark, and pair them with sleek button-downs.

9. The waistcoat (vest)

Cut tight to the body and worn with micro shorts, billowing shirts and occasionally with nothing underneath at all, a black tailored waistcoat was present on all catwalks. Vests can be dapper and streamlined, or fresh and funky. But no matter what style you choose on any given day, know that they will add greater dimensions to your look.

10. The (faux) leather

Once reserved strictly for fall and winter, leather is ready to have its moment during spring too. Get the look right for the season by opting for a colorful skirt or jacket iteration that can be styled countless ways. If a leather skirts sounds heavy, lighten it up with a no-fuss top or a simple T-shirt.

11. Crochet All Day

The knit style is definitely not going away in warmer months, but that’s because the see-through fabric is ideal to wear from the beach to the street.

Crochet is getting a cool update come spring. Think ultra-feminine dresses, polished suiting, and evening-wear that feels modern with a special touch of Grandma’s handmade crochet.

As one of the most romantic days — and date nights — of the year, we all want to look top notch for Valentine's day. Whether you are aiming to keep things comfortable and casual, or to spice things up with an outfit that's a little more extra, there's no such thing as too much outfit inspiration, especially when you want to look really memorable.

Here we give you five different influencer-created outfit inspirations so that you can craft your very own super chic Valentine's Day outfit no matter what your plans for the romance-filled holiday may be.

- Best of both worlds - The best outfits have a balance of feminine and masculine elements. Take the tuxedo dress for instance, it has the sleek lines of suit, but a feminine twist when worn as a minidress and paired with simple and elegant accessories. Keep things neutral by adding nude pumps or sand-hued heeled sandals.

- Flirt with textures - One of the easiest ways to dress up an otherwise casual look is to layer rich textures. For example, to a pair of classic and sleek leather pants (preferably in a bright hue), add a sequinned or a feathered top, a simple knit sweater and a bedazzled headband and you have yourself a look! Equal parts quirky and fun, we call it flirting with your clothes — and you can recycle all of the elements of your outfit into a new ensemble in an absolute snap.

- Wow them with delicate femininity - When in doubt a simple silhouette with feminine elements never fails. Choose a frock with a girly embellishment, such as bows, and let your dress do the talking for you. Just be sure to keep your jewels delicate to keep the focus on your statement dress.

- Go modern with the Groutfit— or grey outfit, for the uninitiated — is the modern take on a monochromatic neutral look. The key is a sleek with a form-fitting dress and layerable elements, which ensure that the visual impact is uninterrupted. It's the low-key take on the slightly more sultry bodycon dress.

- Pair bright with bold - The key to wearing a figure-skimming patterned skirt is to pair the look with solid and bright accessories. Your outfit will be bright and head-turning, without being busy or overly complicated. Pro tip: keep the accessories unfussy and let the bright hues and bold prints stop traffic for you

Dress, jewellery, lingerie ... which outfit to select for Valentine's Day?

For all the romantic souls out there, planning your Valentine’s day is sure to be somewhat mixed with excitement as well as trepidation. Dressing up for the occasion is indeed a big decision particularly for a day like Valentine.

For a special date like Valentine keep it stylish and simple

A simple low back dress can be very appealing on a special date like Valentine

From the plunging cleavage dress to cringe-worthy jewellery, wearing outlandish jumpsuits or other overalls that are impossible, a non-exhaustive list of “faux-pas” certainly become a necessity to avoid in order to have a lovely time with your special one.

Invariably we wonder what to wear for a romantic dinner, but never what not to. To reduce the anxiety of "overdoing it", we have listed everything that you have to forget in your closet before going on a date.

The jumpsuit and overalls to banish

Avoid wearing jumpsuits on a date

Trendy or sophisticated, these two pieces must be part of your wardrobe. However, we do not recommend them for a first date. They are among the pieces least appreciated by men.

Do not wear overalls on a date night

Avoid regressive jewellery

Do not wear engraved jewellery

Everyone understands that you have butterflies in your stomach on a date as special as a Valentine’s Day and that you are joining your other half. Don't overdo your jewellery proportions by sporting Petit Coeur bracelet and ring adornment or even the J + M engraved one, or their discreet version.

Chuck the Prom Dress

Do not overdo it by wearing a prom dress on a date

Avoid the dress embroidered with sequins and try to keep it classy. We recommend a little black dress, elegant and simple. It should be noted that too short is also undesirable.

Avoid excess display of the skin

Do not wear plunging neckline on a too short dress

We can never repeat it enough, everything is in the suggestion. A shoulder, a halter, legs, a neckline ... you have to choose which of these assets to reveal. It all depends on the plan of your evening, but a half-opened shirt suggesting beautiful lingerie or a slightly loose T-shirt revealing a shoulder will do the trick.

Watch out for drooling lipstick

Do not apply drooling lipstick on a date

Always opt to apply a lipstick that doesn’t transfer or a mattifying base for the lips before applying makeup. The trick? Apply the first layer of red, then remove the excess with a tissue, put a little bit of powder before applying the second layer. The advantage? The pigments will resist the test of kisses longer.

Too much makeup

Too much makeup can be very unappealing to your date

We can never repeat it enough, this is the rule number one of makeup: you have to choose to highlight either the eyes or the mouth. If you decide to work your eyes with eyeshadows, leave your lips nude. And vice versa. If you prefer to wear lipstick, on the eyes, one or two applications of mascara will suffice.

Too much perfume

Do not overwhelm your date with too overpowering perfume

For Valentine's Day evening, play the safe card. Choose the scent you are used to wearing and do not just spray it vigorously. Apply it on the pulse areas: the crook of the elbow, the wrists, and a touch behind the ear ... These are the parts of the body that heat up the most and reveal the fragrance.

Keep it memorable...in the right ways
