  • 2020 has kept us indoors for most of its duration, even putting fashion shows on a hiatus as early as March.
  • The fashion industry has since innovated its showcase model, but the traditional runway is making a gradual comeback in various parts of the world, and the world is shopping again.
  • We gave you Spring/Summer 2020 trend predictions before and now we're showing you where to shop them - from Selfi to MRP to LeeBex Fashion, there's something for everyone. 

Remember when we predicted that 2020 could be the year of controversial fashion trends? Well, it turns out that the trends have been mostly harmless, and the controversy around 2020 has actually been about... everything else.

In this article, it was also said that; "gone are the days of brazenly churning out 'shopping advice' to fashion audiences on a weekly or even monthly basis - the economy is bad, and personally, I no longer feel compelled to feed the capitalist machine. Besides, slow fashion is better for the environment anyway."

"Now, trend forecasts are no longer received as sartorial dogma, but rather as references and inspiration," I added. 

We gave you some much-needed Spring/Summer 2020 inspo - trend by trend - in a previous W24 article, now you get to shop them based on our top picks. 

But first, let's take a look at the results from our recent poll where we asked which fashion/beauty items you've shopped the least this year due to the lockdown. 

These were the results from our 271 respondents:

Shoes - 27% 

Makeup - 19%

Wigs - 15% 

Special occasion wear - 18% 

Office wear - 20%  

So seeing as the appetite for fancy frocks and frills was not too badly affected by the pandemic, we've picked a few standout items to shop for those upcoming intimate spring/summer birthday soirees with a 10-person guest list.  

And don't forget your mask!

Fine prints 

Stripes, paisley, tie-dye and of course... florals continue to be "groundbreaking" every spring.
