Big puffed sleeves

With the high street chains and designer brands favouring big puffed sleeves, expect to see oversized styles taking over.

Summer 2020 trends are all about a nostalgic revival (think 80s and 90s fashion), so work a top, bodysuit or dress into your existing wardrobe, or better still, dig out one from the attic – circa 1999.

Where neon was once limited to festival season, it’s since made a major comeback in recent years and if our Instagram feeds are anything to go by, shows no sign of slowing down.

Add a pop of colour to your outfits with a simple neon slip skirt or go bold with a bright bodycon dress Love Island style!

Strappy sandals

As one of the hottest summer 2020 trends in the world of accessories, strappy sandals are having a bit of a moment right now. Thanks to their versatility, these delicate shoes go just as well with a summer dress as they do with a casual jeans/tshirt combo.
