#1 PAISLEY

Remember what I told you about paisley in the trend report for spring summer 2020? I told you that paisley will be in style for a long time. Indeed, paisley will transition from summer to winter 2020. You can bet on this. Almost all fashion houses presented at least one design in paisley during NYFW, LFW, MFW and PFW 2020.

SHOP PAISLEY PRINT NOW AND WEAR IT FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS

Here is what to buy in paisley print now and wear now, plus the next 12 months.

#2 PLAID

Yes, plaid print is one of the fashion trends that will be in style all year long. To be clear, 12 months from now, plaid will still be in style. And yes, all type of plaids are in style for winter 2020 too. Tartan print, checks, gingham … By the way, do you still remember the difference between gingham and checks?

Don’t worry if you don’t, here is a quick and easy to remember the difference between checks and gingham.

GINGHAM

Gingham is a crisscross pattern of dyed cotton with overlapping coloured stripes. Combined with a white thread. If it’s a gingham print, the colouring should be on the warp yarns and with no exception always along the grain.

THESE PIECES IN GINGHAM PRINT ARE MUST HAVE FOR SPRING AND WINTER 2020 TOO

CHECKS

On the other side, checks are merely 2 colours (contrasting colours), one dark and other bright. Like at the chessboard.

Anyway, be sure to check the gallery below. It’s easier to understand the difference between the gingham and checks if you can see it.

CLOTHES IN CHECK PRINT YOU CAN WEAR ALL YEAR LONG

TARTAN

Welcome to the 90s! Tartan, the plaid that comes in multiple colors – crisscrossed horizontal and vertical bands is in style for winter 2020 2021 too!

BURBERRY CHECKS

Obviously, 2020 2021 winter print trend report wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t mention Burberry checks. With no doubt, Burberry check is always in style, regardless of the seasons and fashion trends. So even if when plaid print goes out of style, you can still wear Burberry check!

2020 WINTER FASHION PRINTS THAT ARE BACK IN STYLE

Look which 2 fashion prints are coming back in style for winter 2020 2021! I don’t know about you, but I sure missed houndstooth.

#3 HOUNDSTOOTH

Yes, after 5 months of MIA, houndstooth is coming back in fashion for winter 2020 2021. And I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Ps. If you can only buy one piece of clothing, one pair of shoes or one bag, make sure it’s in houndstooth print. This print is with no doubt one of the most fashionable prints of the season. Everyone stylish says so! Even those who could live in plaid.

Why? Because this print makes you look successful. This is for sure the print you should wear when you want to impress someone.

Houndstooth print makes you look like a million. Thanks to Balmain and Chanel, everyone thinks you are wearing expensive clothes when wearing houndstooth print.

Well truth to be told, they are not that wrong. Clothes in houndstooth can be quite expensive this season. The reason why is purely economics. The demand exceeded the supply.

In brief, everyone is buying clothes in houndstooth print in 2020, and since stores can’t put so many clothes in this print on the shelves so quickly, the price keeps going up.

TRENDY PIECES IN HOUNDSTOOTH PRINT TO BUY NOW AND WEAR FOREVER

Ps. So sorry, but I pushed the SD curve for houndstooth even more to the upper right corner. I just bought all of the clothes from the widget above last night. See my houndstooth blazer. Ps. I’m getting these Dior pumps next.

Mentioning the corner, be sure to click on the bell in the bottom right corner of your desktop to sign up for the new post alert. This way, you will be notified once I publish my first outfit in Dior houndstooth pumps.

#4 PINSTRIPES

Another print that is coming back in fashion for winter 2020 2021 is stripe print. Pinstripe, to be more exact.  Long time no see, right? Honestly, I didn’t miss stripes at all. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to get something striped for winter 2020 2021 too.

Admittedly, I don’t know what exactly I will buy for winter 2020 2021 just yet. But it could be something from the widget below.

IS ANIMAL PRINT BACK IN STYLE TOO?

I know you must be slightly confused right now. I said that animal print came back in fashion for winter 2020/21, yet there’s no sign of it in the print report above.

Well, the thing is that animal print is not very fashionable right now. There were only a few fashion brands (Ganni, Rotate and some other Scandi brands) that made some designs in animal print for winter 2020 2021.

For sure, many fashion brands will include animal print in their new collections as they are using their old stock for the new collections. You know, as they are trying to be smart in these uncertain times when purchasing new materials is not as easy as it used to be. Besides, more and more fashion brands are trying to be more responsible and make new collections from their unused materials.

Anyway, animal prints will come back in style soon, and that’s a fact!

THE MOST FASHIONABLE PRINTS FOR WINTER 2020 2021

And now the key prints of the season. The most stylish prints and patterns of winter 2020 2021 are floral prints.

#5 ROMANTIC FLORALS

Indeed, romantic flower print is not entirely new. Vintage rose print was already in style for spring summer 2020. However, romantic floral print that will be trendy for winter 2020 2021 is slightly different. The vintage roses are faded and painted instead of drawn. Furthermore, the colours feel colder than those for spring summer 2020.

DRESSES IN ROMANTIC FLORAL PRINT YOU CAN WEAR FOR THE NEXT 12 MONTHS

Whatsoever, LoveShackFancy used this beautiful and romantic floral print for spring summer 2020 collection already. Shop it now and wear it for the next 12 months. Ps. I’m bought this dress for me.

#6 TUDOR FLORAL PRINT

Another floral print that is still in style for AW20/21 is Tudor floral print. This is a rich floral print often adorned with letterings and stylised forest patterns. Lilies and tulips are the trendiest floral motifs for winter 2020 2021.

By the way, this floral print is my favourite print of the year. How it wouldn’t be when It makes any dress, jacket or pants look expensive?

Besides, it’s really effortless to style a Tudor floral print. Plus, you can wear it from brunch to work. And from work to late-night drinks. Furthermore, this floral print is just perfect to wear for parties.

Whatsoever, enough writing/reading! While I could keep writing about this luxurious floral print, let’s make a full stop here. For now! And better start checking all these dark floral stunning clothes, shoes and bags in the widget below.

CLOTHES TO BUY IN TUDOR FLORAL PRINT FOR WINTER 2020 2021

Indeed, all these three prints and patterns will stay in style for winter 2020 2021. And yes, they all are in fashion for spring summer 2020 2021, too. Even the argyle print.

#7 JUNGLE PRINT

Yes, jungle print is in style for winter 2020 2021, too. Will this fashion trend stick? I think we will have to wait to see.

JUNGLE PRINTS YOU CAN WEAR ALL YEAR LONG

#8 ARGYLE PRINT

Another new, fresh yet highly fashionable print is the argyle print. Yes, argyle print not just argyle pattern. As you can see in the gallery below, there are layers of overlapping diamonds and lozenges printed on all sorts of clothes this season. Not just knits.

However, a sweater in argyle pattern is this a must-have piece this season. I like this sweater. What do you think? Should I buy it? It’s a chic makeover of the argyle pattern.

IF YOU DON’T LIKE PRINTS – WEAR BROCADE

Don’t like wearing prints, but also don’t like wearing plain clothes? Then wear brocade. Well yes, brocade looks like Tudor floral print. Furthermore, it’s the same thing. Only when it’s not. Tudor floral print can be embroidered too. That’s when we talk about brocade – this season’s key pattern.

PATTERNS IN FASHION FOR WINTER 2020 2021

There are other things that you can wear if you don’t like prints or plain clothes, shoes and bags. Apart from the beautiful brocade you also have these 5 options.

#1 QUILT

Of course, the quilt. The quilt is one of the top 5 fashion trends this season. Thank Bottega Veneta by shopping these! By the way, Bottega Veneta quilted pumps are this season’s IT pumps. So say Instagram and TikTok.

However, you can find soft quilting, decorative stitches, on the clothes and accessories too. Tibi (see here) and Sandro Paris (see here) even put stitches onto the skirt and leather jacket (buy here).

#2 MOCK-CROC EFFECT

Yes, mock croc is also still in fashion for winter 2020 2021. Thank you! Whoever we have to thank for bringing again the mock croc too. And yes, this means you will see me walking around in my Ganni mock-croc boots this season also.

Again, brocade and embroidered fabrics.

#4 LACE

Since lingerie trend is one of the key winter 2020/21 fashion trends, lace is very trendy this season too.

#5 PATCHWORK

No matter who sends it first on the runway, patchwork always stays fashion underdog. Well, perhaps not for winter 2020 2021. Patchwork is forecasted to be one of the key fashion trends this season.

I don’t like it though. Hence no shopping suggestions for patchwork this time. Perhaps I will add some later. that is if I find something in patchwork that I would like. Although I doubt so.

#6 SEQUINS

Lastly, sequins! Glitter and sequins are still in style as well. I’m not surprised, though. After all, what if not a sequin dress can we wear for a December party. I’m getting this pretty pink sequin dress. What about you?
