Summer vibes do not feel quite the same this year. Due to the lockdown caused by the coronavirus outbreak, we have not been able to make the most of this summer as we had hoped. For many of us, this means we have not updated our summer wardrobe and are still wearing last year’s threads.

But worry not, summer is far from over. There’s still plenty of time to get on-trend with some new sophisticated summer outfits. Although we may be attending far fewer outdoor gatherings, we can still look sassy, stylish, and summery, even if we’re just going for a walk in the park.

Here are the top fashion trends for summer 2020.

Matching sets

Matchy-matchy looks always look cute and glamorous, and this summer is no different. Matching top and short sets are a popular outfit choice for beach days, vacations, and chilling in the park. 

This trend also carries over for work and business meetings. This summer, we’re seeing matching blazer and shorts/skirts combos from many fashion brands such as JustFab which give the perfect blend of style and sophistication. In terms of colors and patterns, floral print sets are the ideal choice for summertime. Moreover, bold color choices are a summer must for standing out in the crowd.

Platform sandals

One footwear trend that is rocking this season is platform sandals. Flatforms are great for short girls in particular, as they give you that desired extra height while maintaining comfortable wear, thus keeping your feet in good condition. 

Platform sandals can be worn for any occasion and can be dressed up or down. Also, they look best when paired with cropped denim or your favorite summer maxi dress at a garden party or beach barbeque. These versatile sandals will for sure, make a great addition to your summer 2020 wardrobe.


Because of our decrease in social activity this summer, fashion brands are seeing an increase in demand for loungewear. Flowing maxi dresses, loose-fit breezy pants, and comfy but stylish jumpsuits are all awesome outfits to lounge around in at home. From these consumer shopping trends, it’s clear many women agree that just because we have to stay at home, does not mean we have to look sloppy.

Tropical vibes

Even if we can’t jet off to a tropical paradise this year, we can bring the tropics to us. 

Think front tie wrap tops, wide-leg open slit pants, and lace-up back jumpsuits. So what if you can’t lay on a palm tree-lined, white sand beach, you can still sip a pina colada while laying in your backyard.

Summer gives us the perfect opportunity to spruce up our look and boost our confidence, which in turn, increases those feel-good vibes. 

Understandably, online shopping has rapidly risen this year. Why not spend some of this extra free time at home, browsing online for some stylish and sophisticated summer outfits. Don’t let this summer pass you by!
