Let’s make use of this free time at home to tackle at-home projects, like purging and organizing those closets! 

With each season comes fresh designers and exciting styles. Some of the trends I’ve noticed in 2020 are older styles being brought back in unique ways. There are also new and exciting silhouettes to make you want to strut your stuff right into 2021! To ensure you kick the year off in fashion, I put together a list of the top five trends you’ll be seeing all year long! Plus, don’t you want to look sassy for those Zoom happy hours?

Tara West Models both the puff sleeve and peplum top look.

The Puffed Sleeve

The puffed sleeve is not a new trend, but its popularity has been growing for several seasons. Puffed sleeves come in all different silhouettes: structured and some more relaxed. This type of sleeve portrays a very feminine form and creates proportion, which is sure to flatter all shapes and sizes. 


They’re back and better than ever! Peplum took a bit of a hiatus the past several years, but it’s making a comeback in 2020. Peplum style will be prevalent in almost every form: tops, skirts, evening gowns, you name it! No matter how you choose to wear it, you’ll be turning heads!

Colored Leather

Colored leather is a favorite of mine because it’s seasonless! Leather is not just for the cold winter months anymore: choose a pastel tone for spring or bright neon colors for summer. The possibilities are endless with this trend! From shirts to dresses to coats, I have a feeling that colored leather is here to stay. You’ll be seeing a lot more leather this Spring 2020!

Polka Dots!

Polka Dot Dress

We all have a polka-dot clothing item that’s been sitting in the back of our closets, it’s finally time to bring them front and center! You’ll start seeing this classic print on trench coats, dresses, even suits.

A good polka dot ensemble always looks effortlessly chic, all you need to do is modernize it. Wear this print with tailored, crisp items for an outfit that is essential for the everyday modern woman.

Hoop Earrings

Hoop Earrings

If I had to pick a single accessory to wear all year long, I’d choose hoop earrings any day of the week!

This accessory will take your outfit from good to fabulous in seconds. Size does matter when it comes to hoops, choose a size that you’re comfortable with, and that frames your face shape. From big and bold to twisted and tiny, you’re sure to find a pair that makes you feel like a boss babe!
