Affordable Expensive Looking Outfits To Add In Your Closet This Summer

Right now, S/S 20 fashion weeks—which took place last September and October—probably feel like a distant memory. It was back before the term social distancing was used in our daily vernacular and the need to strategically plan a once-a-day walk was an absolute necessity.

When the thought of crowded rooms filled with editors and influencers seemed completely normal, and hugs and handshakes were just regular friendly greetings. 

However, despite the fact those runways feel a world away, many of their lessons are more relevant today than ever. From color predictions to clothing trends, September’s collections acted as a crystal ball, enabling us to understand what would be most in-demand over the next few months. 

In terms of color, the runways were filled with a mixture of calming sky blues and shades of shocking pink. (You can thank JW Anderson for the former and Jacquemus for the latter.)

Of course, as you’d expect with any summer runway, crisp white and sandy beige were also heavily prevalent, seen across voluminous dresses, linen shirts, and tailored trousers.
