2020 Style Trends I Will Wear & those I will ignore!


Can we talk about style as opposed to fashion? Whilst reading through my March Vogue (yes it arrived this week!) and last weekends Sunday style supplements, I notice a divergent between the two. The 2020 style trends vs the fashion trends. I am all for one and will never become a victim of the other! I’m sure you know what Im talking about, fashion dates but style is immortal, Gabrielle aka ‘Coco’ Chanel said it best:

The Trench:

Yes I know, SPRING = TRENCH every single year right?

Cos Trench



The trench coat is always paired with the adjective ‘Classic’ and for good reason. Did you know that a good quality trench coat should last for life. No wonder ‘trench style’ is huge for 2020, it has become an Eco hero. Her are some of mine I have three at present:


  1. A pale blue mid length one from Hobbs, New season one available here
  2. An old mid-length cotton one from Boden.
  3. A new easy to wear pale beige one from Cos above and below (my favourite)

Blue Denim is everywhere…

Leading on from the trench, it has to be denim, another classic.

Yes I am and will be forever in blue jeans and there is nothing wrong with that. I have many pairs all different blues with various fit and cut. A word; you will not have seen me in skinny jeans for at least 2 years and you wont be seeing me in them in 2020. Straight cut yes, but not skinny, and a relaxed fit always.

Overwhelmed with all the denim colour choices? … act like Madonna and go for true blue you won’t go wrong!

Do the double and even triple denim trick, wear denim dresses, shorts, jackets layer up and go for it. Just make sure its denim says Vogue! I intend to go charity shopping for a denim Jacket this year, I will be looking through the men’s rail and keeping it over-sized.


Stompy Boots are here to stay.

Lug-soled styles paired with boxy bags were all over the Danish capital this week for Copenhagen Fashion week.

I bought mine from Vagabond late last year…they are still available from Office Shoes

Another 2020 style Trend for Summer I will be investing in:

The white dress, but not a sheer one, it has to be lined with short sleeves and long and flowing!





…And A trend I will ignore, having done it all before in the 80’s. NEON BRIGHTS are not for this 56 year old, nope not this year!





So for spring I will be wearing my wide jeans, with a denim shirt, topped off with a short trench and some Stompy boots! How about you?



My little box bag in these pics is available in various colours in the Hobbs sale at the moment , I love this colour version!

…and this one too!

Oh and before I forget to tell you, I love this Cos bag so much I bought it (whilst researching accessories for this post) OOPS!

Take a look and tell me what you think, its very different and keeps selling out…it arrived today and I’m overjoyed with it.

    I’ve really been trying to break out of the skinny jeans lately and trying new styles. I love all of these looks. That picture with the cream top is so pretty!! Great style.

    I am loving the different jeans styles but haven’t worn anything but skinny jeans in the past years. Need to try them out.

      Hello Mireille!

      Thank you for you comment.

      Yes it is always good for the soul to change things up a bit each year!

    Very good point between style and fashion. I really don’t follow fashion trends. What looks good on me is seldom reflected in fashion. I like your style!

      Thank you very much for taking the time to comment.
      I do think a lot of fashion trends look better on the young, but as an older woman I is a great feeling to know your own style!

      What a lovely comment, thank you!
      Jeans are not for everyone and wouldn’t it be boring if we all dressed the same?

    I would say yes to your jean and stomper boot style. I have a couple pair of skinny jeans, but don’t like wearing them. As for trenches, they have been popular these last couple years, when I tried one on, it was not for me (not that I don’t appreciate them on others)!

      Your skinny jeans suit you Laurie! They look ridiculous on me! Chalk and cheese right!

    It’s really interesting looking at what other people wear. I love the summer jeans photo, so pretty. The jeans look amazing on you but would look awful on me. Skinny suits me best. (apple shape!). Years ago, one of my sisters bought me a second hand pair if baggy-ish jeans, and omg! I looked awful. And the stomper boots? I don’t have any but everyone whom I know who has them, wears them every year.

      Thank you and I agree 100%, each to his own!
      Our personality makes our styles unique as it should be, how boring would our world be if we all wore the same things?
