Animal print: Animal prints have made a huge impact on fashion in 2020. This is the clothing and fashion style in which the clothing is made to resemble the pattern of the fur of an animal such as cow, leopard, cheetah, snow leopard, zebra, tiger and snake print. Animal print is also used for room decorations, handbags, footwear and even some jewelry.


Chunky Boots w/ Feminine Dresses: The chunky boots like Doc Martens with a super cute wrap dress, an apron dress, a boho dress or even a simple sundress would all be really cute all together. A comfortable, yet classy girly look of pairing chunky boots with feminine dresses is back with a brand new twist.


Bucket hats: Bucket hats were at the height of the mod movement in the 60s then the bucket hat transitioned from a functional piece to a fashionable one, with styles that avoid using traditional cotton or tweed for felt or some other stiff fabrics that captured the spirit of the decade. Fast forward to the early 80s and the hiphop community saw immense potential in bucket hats some would argue that the bucket introduced rappers to the world of headwear, with many embracing the style on album covers and in music videos.


Hair clips: Lots of girls and even guys have brought back the super cute butterfly clips from the 90s and even a little in the early 2000s. Right now, there is a comeback of butterfly clips, the 90s hair accessory trend everyone once bulk-bought at the mall. They’re small, versatile, and packed with personality. Back in the day no hairstyle should call for ten butterfly clips. People still vow that the accessory can add just a touch of playfulness to any boring hair day, even in 2020.

Flared jeans: Flared jeans, also known as bell-bottoms, are seen as iconic fashion pieces worn by hippies and rock stars in the 60s and 70s, but their origin actually comes from an unlikely source: the navy. This particular style can actually be traced back to the wide-legged trousers used by sailors in the US Navy in the 19th century. The flared look was at the time incredibly different from the mainstream styles being offered in big stores, and many men and women found it unique and funky enough to use themselves. People began to buy up these old pants and embellish them with flowers and funky designs as a form of protest against the US Military. The style eventually became synonymous with the ‘flower child’ movement, and was mostly associated with hippies.

Cargo pants: Cargo pants surged onto the fashion scene in the mid to late 90s. Following a “trickle up” theory of how fashions spread, cargo pants first were worn as fashion by urban hip hop performers in the 90s. This trend flowed up to the mass market, cargo pants were found at almost any men’s or women’s clothing retailer at this time. Although the cargo pockets on most items were functional, they often were unused and just worn as decorative details.
