WHAT TO BUY FOR SUMMER 2020 AND SPRING SUMMER 2021
Now let’s get to the list of all the things that you should buy this season.
Ps. My entire spring summer 2020 capsule wardrobe shopping list with all the fashionable things that I am buying this season, or I have already bought is waiting for you below – ready for you to shop online.
Truth to be told, most of these stylish things are already hanging in my closet. Or waiting in the box tower in my dressing room. Yes, I have a lot of unboxing to do this weekend. Still, I have plenty of time now that I’m home 24/7.
Anyway, since I was making this spring summer 2020 capsule checklist thinking of you too, I also added a few things that are IT things of the season, remarkably fashionable, but you won’t see me wearing them. Like the ugly sporty sandals and a few more things that don’t go with my style.
But who knows, perhaps I change my mind and I purchase them anyway. And wear them next year. After all, all these things from spring summer 2020 capsule checklist will be in style for 2021, also.
So what to shop for summer 2020 and spring summer 2021? Scroll down to see!
Shop the accessories first to make sure you don’t run out of the money before you even fasten your chain belt and count the pearls on that pretty pearl hairpin.
You have two options this season. Either a chain beltor a woven belt. Of course, pastel belts are an option, too.
When it comes to the jewellery there are 3 big fashion trends for summer 2020. So better tick all the checkboxes next to the pearls, chain jewelleryand colourful jewellery.
Also, add mono earring to my shopping list. By the way, if you want your last year’s favourite shell necklace look fashionable for 2020, be sure to style it with pearls. I’m sure you can master the layered look with strands, pearls and shells.
As these are not the only sunglasses on my spring summer 2020 shopping list, you should check the extended fashion report with all the sunglasses trends, also. But first, more about other spring-summer IT accessories from my shopping list.
Remember I wrote bucket hat trend would get big soon? It turns out that this fashion trend no one seemed to care about finally got into the spotlight. Everyone wears bucket hats now. I am getting this one.
Another fashionable summer 2020 hat is the bird-nest hat. Dior featured it first.
Well if you don’t like a bucket hat or the bird-nest hat, there is always the ladylikeheadscarf you can wear. Just be sure to tie the square scarf under your chin. Like Grace Kelly would.
The criss-cross neckline is not fashionable only for summer dresses but swimwear too. However, this is not your only option. It turns out that some of your last season’s swimwear is still in fashion. That is if you were shopping from my swimwear shopping list.
Even so, you should purchase a one side shoulder swimsuit this year, too. And the rest of swimwear from my SS20 shopping list. After all, summer will be long, and if you tend to live in your bikini all summer long, you will need those.
Another stylish summer 2020 top you might already own is a polo shirt. As you read, in summer 2020 we wear polo shirts every day. When doing sports and work at the office. It seems to me that I won’t be the only one stylish at the golf course this year.
Anyway, there are a few other tops and tees for summer 2020 you should add to your summer 2020 capsule wardrobe; a crop top, the corset top, ribbed button detailed top, spaghetti strap top, bodycon top, form-fitting top, half-zipped sweater, embroidered knits, a vest and a bra. Well, don’t look like that. The lingerie trend is big this summer. Well, a waistcoat is something we brought back from the 90s. Better a waistcoat than low jeans, right?
I’m pretty sure I mentioned you should add a bra to your summer 2020 capsule wardrobe, already. Still, I need to mention a bra again. Because the last time I mentioned it I meant a bra, you could wear instead of a shirt or over a shirt.
Whatsoever, here is a short lingerie capsule list for summer 2020. In 2020 the most fashionable underwear is a classic stretch soft-cup bra, a tiger print bra, a knit bra, a body, lace briefs, the hipsters, and a silk camisole. Bralette is back in style too.
If 2019 was the year of cycling shorts, 2020 is certainly not. In 2020 the shorter is better. At least when it comes to the shorts. Even though bermudas are still fashionable (leather bermudas to be exact), the shorts, especially when worn with a matching blazer, are the most fashionable bottoms in 2020.
As it goes to the pants, no, no cropped pants on summer 2020 capsule wardrobe shopping list this season. Unfortunately, not because my closet is already filled with tapered pants, but because in spring-summer 2020 cropped pants are more or less out of style.
Of course, you also need high-waisted pants, and straight-leg trousers, and cargo pants. Yes, cargo pants are still in style. Ps. Wear your new cargo pants with mules.
Same goes for the jeans. Apart from the 80s jeans and 90s jeans that tend to be slightly shorter and high-waisted. Yet baggy. No tapered jeans this time. It’s time for high-waisted jeans, wide jeans, and straight-leg jeans, retro-inspired jeans, cool jeans, 90s jeans, 80s jeans, white jeans, grey jeans, washed jeans. By the way, do you know what brands make the coolest and the most comfortable jeans?
For not so warm summer you will need this jacket. No, not the denim jacket. Sure, the denim jacket is back in style for summer 2020. Yet, the trophy jacket of SS 2020 is a grey blazer. Surprised? I’m not!
By the way, also fashionable for summer 2020 are the 70s jacket and safari jacket. And a vest, as mentioned already.
Nevertheless, starting with the thong sandals. Just in case this is the last thing you can afford after all this shopping. There is no doubt if you can only afford 2 new things this summer, you need to get thong sandalsand a voluminous dress.
However, the most fashionable 2020 summer bags are a raffia bag, rattan bag, and a 70s satchel bag. The bucket bag is back in style too. Anyway, go through the 2020 bag trend report to see all the bag trends for summer 2020.
