Trend 1-Restructured Classics

The Classics return this Fall/Winter 2020 season, elevating casual wear by combining it with tailored silhouettes.  With unemployment decreasing, and more people entering the job market, casual components are mixed with tailored clothing.  Clean lines emerge, along with utility details and structure.  Women’s apparel features fluidity and femininity.  Men’s wear silhouettes are slightly relaxed.  Classic menswear fabrics and patterns emerge featuring traditional colors such as Grays, Navy, and Grayed off Browns. Sweaters and knitwear feature unexpected pops of color, which adds versatility and newness to the restructured classics.
