In 2018 and 2019 there was no way you could escape the prairie dress. If there was one silhouette that defined fashion last year, the prairie dress with its high collar and long sleeves would be it. If that wasn’t your style, then have we got good news: Dress trends for 2020 are decidedly sassier. In general they are low cut, form-fitting or come in luxurious fabrics.
There are a few trends that are returning again for this coming spring, including the oversized white cotton dress and the slip, which consistently reappears every season. There are a few designers leading the pack when it comes to dress styles—Cecilie Bahnsen, Faithfull the Brand and Bottega Veneta are three that immediately come to mind. But if the luxury price tag is too much, there are some incredible pieces on the high street too.
While a lot of the trends will look brilliant with sandals and a summer bag, you can wear all of these dresses now with a roll-neck and a pair of ankle boots. Ready to see our guide to the seven dress trends that will dominate the coming year? Keep scrolling.
Style Notes: Slip dresses returned to our wardrobes seasons and seasons ago, so it seems odd to say it’s a trend when it never disappears. That said, 2020’s version is best worn in a block colour and with the simplest of straps to embrace the ’90s minimalism trend.
