Clothing Don’t be alarmed: I know summer isn’t over yet and I’m 100 percent not ready to retire my summer dresses and denim shorts, but we do have to chat about fall fashion for a second because it’ll creep up on us. (We’re more than halfway through 2020 already!) You’ve read up on all the trendiest bags, shoes, and general fashion trends for fall 2020, so I’ll speed along and chat about the popular colors you can expect to appear on your RTW.
Amongst your black, caramel, and olive tones from the runways, you’ll find other colorful colors such as blush pink and bold reds. Depending on your taste, you’ll either stick with experimenting with one shade or embrace whole fall 2020 color spectrum. This is a judgment-free zone, so do as you please. Now enough chitchat, check out fall 2020’s most popular clothing colors ahead.
You have nothing to fear from wearing red—it was one of the most prevalent colors to pop up on the fall 2020 runways, like this Michael Kors catwalk ensemble. The hue was also spotted at other shows like Lanvin, Prabal Gurung, Givenchy, and Marques Almeida to remind everyone not to shy away from bold colors. What’s the best way to break up your winter whites (and blacks?), red of course.
Transparent Belt Rain Jacket
Stay dry in this transparent rain jacket during torrential downpours. The color is bright but still palette-able, especially if you wear more toned-down clothing underneath.
Solferino Medium Satchel
Two reasons I want this bag: Blackpink member Rosé has one and it’ll never go out of style thanks to the timeless shape. The satchel has an unmissable gold YSL closure—luxurious—and comes in a gorgeous deep red hue.
Cotton-Twill Straight-Leg Cargo Pants
If your denim collection is making you yawn, lock eyes on this pair of red cargo pants. They’re the perfect disruptor to your all-the-same-color bottoms.
From Altuzarra (pictured here) and Khaite to Fendi and Alexander McQueen, varying shades of pink popped up as one of fall’s must-wear colors. Even if you’re not the type to get dressed in this ultra feminine hue, you might find yourself taken with the more muted tones. Looking for something even brighter? You’ll be inclined to show up at an event in something like this.
Belt Shirt Dress
This shirt dress can be worn buttoned all the way with sandals or unbuttoned with a tank and pair of jeans underneath. Either way, it’s a good transitional piece to have in your closet.
Wool & Cashmere Mock Neck Sweater
When a Mansur Gavriel piece is on sale and still comes in your sizing, it’s a good day. This sweater is currently 50 percent off! You know it’s already in my shopping cart.
The next time you have a special event coming up, wear something from Diarrablu, a black-owned business founded by Diarra Bousso. We love this pretty blush-colored dress, which was produced in a small ethical workshop in Dakar, Senegal.
Shades of blue span the spectrum and I love them all, so when it was apparent that this was one of the major colors for fall 2020, I was excited. From the cobalt blue peacoat and top at Monse to Loewe’s royal blue dress to MSGM’s blue wrap, the hue came in a rich tone that is both wearable and pleasing to the eye.
Belted A-Line Twill Trenchcoat
A trench coat for fall isn’t groundbreaking, but you can up your outerwear game with this option instead of your usual go-to beige coat.
Spire Gauze Midi Skirt by Staud
Fall weather is great for layering summer staples (a skirt) with more autumnal pieces like a thin, knit sweater. Pair them with your favorite ankle boots.
Padded Plaid Wool Blend Overshirt
This cozy plaid shirt has light padding on the inside to keep you extra toasty during those brisk nights in the fall.
Seeing Kaia Gerber in this all-gray look has inspired me to plan similar outfits for fall 2020. To keep your look from feeling drab, mix and match different shades of gray. Need more runway inspo? Check out Max Mara, a brand that does the monochrome look so well, or this Alberta Ferretti look.
Like trousers, one should always have a pair of dressy shorts they can pull on at a moment’s notice. This tailored pair signals that you’re pulled together and ready to tackle that to-do list.
Single Breasted Belted Blazer
What’s more luxe than a Prada blazer with a plaid print? A Prada blazer with a waist-cinching buckle belt.
This merino wool cardigan will allow you to wear that strappy summer tank top well into fall.
For a pop of color that also veers towards neutral territory, olive is the way to go. This color was spotted everywhere, from the Fendi runway (pictured here) to Richard Malone, where the color was used for a ruched panel satin dress. This olive-colored suede outfit from Longchamp is amazing too.
If you’re not too keen on wearing the color up top, rock it on the bottom instead. These Ulla Johnson pants have a fold-over waist and visible stitching to give it a cool design.
Olive Overlover Magnolia True Linen Jumpsuit
There’s no need to change out of this comfy jumpsuit if you have to leave the house to meet up with friends. The linen one-piece nails the casual but dressy vibe.
Oversized Padded Jacket
This padded coat can be worn as a dress if you’re feeling lazy about peeling off your clothes indoors.
