From Friday, September 11th to Wednesday, September 16th, New York City hosted one of it’s most iconic events: New York Fashion Week. Editors, models, influencers, and photographers typically venture downtown to take part in the shows, but this season it was different. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, people weren’t sure what to expect. But, with masks and mostly virtual shows, New York Fashion Week 2020 came together to create a week unlike any other.
From relaxed suits to floral prints, the designers this year created show-stopping collections. Keep reading to learn more about the trends to know for the Spring season.
Time to ditch the tight pantsuits, the relaxed fit is back in style. Loose-cut pants and blazers are a step up from loungewear, while still maintaining that comfortable silhouette.
In contrast to the neutral palette that is still trending now, bright colors were a staple in this year’s shows. Pink, green, blue, and orange tones plagued the runway from Oscar de la Renta to Prabal Gurung and Carolina Herrera.

As the spring season approaches, temperatures rise. Sporting cutouts are a great way to keep your personal style while staying comfortable in the heat. A carryover trend from Fall 2020, designers clearly still love to reveal a little skin in unexpected places.

Beginning in the ’40s, designers started to add one unconventional feature to their pieces– an exaggerated shoulder. They were implemented to make women feel more confident in the workspace and have rotated in and out of style ever since. This Spring, they’re back and bigger than ever.
What matches spring better than flowers? The popular ‘cottage core’ aesthetic inspired designers to revolutionize florals. This year, designers took a unique approach, such as layering the pattern over an undergarment, as seen in the Lela Rose collection.
In this crazy time, people really didn’t know what New York Fashion Week was going to deliver. As always, the designers pulled off a spectacular show, displaying out of the box ideas and new trends for the spring, all while keeping everyone safe.
