London Fashion Week SS20: Trend Report

London Fashion Week SS20: Trend Report

As London Fashion Week comes to an end, it is time to reflect on the latest trends that have emerged. LFW 2020 has provided a plethora of newness, from its essential digital edge to a catalogue of fantastic designs and artwork. Here are some of the trends you can expect to see for the rest of this year. 

Puffed Sleeves

This year, puffed sleeves have become a prominent trend, giving our outfits an alternative 80s-inspired edge. Discover designs that draw attention to the shoulder, or pieces that focus on the arm, a puffed sleeve is a must. For 2020, from the catwalk to the high street, puffed sleeves have been spotted on SS20 designs from Richard Quinn, Ganni, Beaufille, COS and more. There’s no escaping them – discover tops and dresses featuring the iconic puffed sleeve for the season ahead.


The drawstring has been a part of fashion history, expertly nipping in your waist or revealing a flash of thigh. Whatever the style – smart or casual, this season, the drawstring will make an appearance on shorts, jackets, dresses and more. This year, drawstring detailing has become a recurring feature on the runway, bunching up skirts, basic tees and sleeves. Invest in a retro style that provides a unique texture and look to any outfit. 

Sheer Layers

Sheer, skin-bearing fabrics have continued to grow in popularity since SS19. This season, sheering layering has sprung back on to the scene featuring tops, dresses and blouses. Add an edge to your wardrobe with a visible bralette or layer up your look with an essential vest or slip. This trend has been featured across the high street, and also within the collections of House Of Holland, Richard Malone and more. Immerse yourself in this trend as you play with textures and silhouettes. 


In past years, ruching has become a style found at the wrist or neck, but for SS20 we have seen ruched torsos. Here we have another way to add texture and shape to an otherwise simple piece, immediately introducing a high-end look and feel. Ruching was first seen on the runway back in the 1980s and subsequently became a huge feature within  80s fashion. Today, ruching is showing up on everything from skirts and dresses to blouses and sportswear pieces. Make a statement and liven up your clothing with a new texture. 

Power Prints

During every Fashion Week, we are greeted with all-new, exciting prints for the season ahead and this season is no exception. Power-prints are back for the summer, with psychedelic florals, giant polka dots and tropical prints taking over the runways. When it comes to prints, there are no rules and there is no such thing as too much. Discover a new energy for SS20 as fresh prints continue to make waves within the world of fashion. Whether you prefer a delicate print, or something all-out, there is something for everyone this season.
