Spring 20’s key pieces and must buys, seen through a season defining rose tinted perspective.
Give wardrobe staples a new context for spring 20 with the Drapers edit of refreshed classics and reworked staples, seen through a season-defining rose-tinted perspective.
There is a fresh femininity for the new season: clean lines and crisp silhouettes are accented with pared-back frills.
Basics are elevated – whether through design details, such as statement sleeves, or unexpected fabric choices.
While dresses bring summery flair, transitional buys – knits and lightweight outerwear, for example – should be a focus, alongside traditional tailoring.
A palette of eye-catching pinks dominate many collections – they are less girly and pack a punch as bold colour blocks or styled in tonal sets. Take your pick of the pinks…
