As a fashion editor, I’m acutely aware of all the current trends on the scene and have basically made it a pastime of mine to uncover emerging micro-trends about to make it big next. Since I spend so much of my time trendspotting and reporting on the styles that are in and out, I tend to rack up a massive shopping list for all the holes in my own closet. At the start of each new season, I keep a running tab of all the pieces I want to add to my wardrobe to nail each of the overarching trends I’m seeing.
On my list of trendy spring clothes for 2020 are items such as ankle-tie sandals, shoulder bags, and wide-leg jeans (just to name a few) that represent each of the larger trends I want to test out myself. By keeping a list like this, I’m able to avoid making impulsive purchases and ensure that each item I add to my virtual shopping cart is one that I’ll be satisfied within several months’ time.
