Spring '20 Runway Trends: How to Make Spring's Runway Looks Work for You

Exaggerated ruffles, sheer tiers, crochet and poppy polka dots abound! In part one of my spring trend report, I'm sharing my insider tips on how to make the season's fresh-off-the-runway looks work for you!

Let's start with ruffles-the cherubic embellishment that instantly signifies ostentatious feminine flair. This year's ruffle trends read over-the-top, and that's okay! The etherial ruffle trend is perfect for pairing for everything; from your favorite denim (skirts, shorts and jeans, alike) to high-waisted pants, blouses and tops. Rococo ruffled dresses, a la Arianna Grande's Grammy dress are a total mood this season.

Sheer art! Take your spring style to the next level with tiers. I'm not just talking your average tiered gown, I'm talking see-through dresses with abounding tiers. My favorite way to wear sheer, tiered dresses is over a simple top and jeans or shorts. Sheer tiered dresses also pair well over plain, more fitted dresses (back in Oct. '19, I layered 3 different dresses for one look). Keep in mind, my fashionable friends, the tiered trend is not only reserved for sheer looks. While the tried and true tiered trend is not new, the silhouettes on this spring's runways are fashionably flamboyant, and totally fit for the new and now looks of 2020. Tiers and ruffles go hand-in-hand, by the way.


No need to reach for your grandmother's crochet needles, designers, Jonathan Simkhai and Celine have this throwback, textural trend covered. Loop this time-honored trend into your spring wardrobe by opting for crochet midi and maxi dresses, maxi skirts, crochet swimwear, handbags and ornate crochet tops. #FashionCrazedFoodie Pro Tip: Scour thrift stores for vintage crochet pieces, or DIY them!

Polka Dots

Busy, bold and modernized are the terms that come to mind when I think of the newfangled polka dots. I can’t quite pinpoint the reason, but I've always had a love/hate relationship with old school polka dots, however, I’m ready to incorporate the now-trending dots into my spring wardrobe. I’m currently coveting tops and dresses that juxtapose small and large polka dots. I’m also stanning for pattern play and color blocking with polka prints. Get on point with the polka trend with striking one-and-done dresses, like the ones spotted at Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera, Balmain and Gabriela Hearst. Trendspotting: Make this look yours by pairing a polka-dotted pussy-bow blouse with high-waisted pants. Pretty polka dots are here to stay, PERIOD!
#FashionCrazedFoodie Pro Tip: If you’re unsure about this classic print, ease into it! Try wearing a printed polka-dotted blouse as an anchoring, statement piece underneath a monochromatic suit.
