For many fashion lovers, setting up a clothing business is the ultimate dream. Nothing is better than sharing your vision with everyone; however, it can be harder than it looks. Although starting your clothing business can be pretty exhilarating, it requires some careful planning, not to mention vast knowledge about the current market trends. If you are thinking about building your fashion empire from the ground up, but do not know where to start, we’ve got you covered.
Just take a look at the best fashion trends of 2020 that you need to consider adding to your line.
Stripes are a staple when it comes to patterns, and this has yet to change in the year 2020. From casual jumpsuits to formal wear, many fashion houses are still creating a lot of magnificent pieces that sport stripes, so this means that you should definitely include this winning pattern in your next collection. Of course, it goes without saying that we are talking about vertical stripes; vertical stripes are very flattering and hide physical imperfections. On the other hand, horizontal stripes might make most people appear a bit overweight; thus, avoid adding this pattern to your collection at all costs!
Oversized Sweaters and Hoodies
While it is not exactly sweater weather right now, it does not hurt to consider adding a few baggy pieces to your collection for those chilly November nights. Loved for their practicality, oversized hoodies are here to stay. When creating your own design, make sure to include some geometric patterns. You can turn to Baja hoodies for inspiration. You will find that these Baja hoodies have the best of both worlds: great design and a comfortable fit. Traditional Mexican clothes are usually a good source of inspiration when it comes to picking the patterns you want to go with.
The Disco Collar
Remember when the disco collar dominated the 80s fashion scene? Well, you better put on your dancing shoes because it has finally made a comeback this year! To make sure that this fashion statement stands out, match disco collars with bright, contrasting hues. What is great about this piece is that you can practically add it to any casual coat, shirt, or jacket. Women and men alike can rock this timeless piece in 2020.
Speaking of trends that have made a comeback this year, neon colors have dominated the catwalk. From neon pink to fluorescent green, 2020 is all about crazy colors. However, if you are not so keen on this funky color palette, you can just add it into a few pieces in your collection. To prevent this trend from getting outrageous and ensure high sales, consider using this palette for only jewelry, belts, and bags.
As opposed to the last trend we’ve covered, this one is a lot tamer and widely accepted. Universally loved by many, pastel shades add a timeless touch to any clothing line. While these colors are usually geared more towards women, nothing is stopping you from making pastel-colored button-downs. Muted mint green, lilac, and baby blue are all safe options if you are thinking of adding a touch of pastel to your clothes.
The fashion industry cannot stay afloat without including some staple pieces of accessories like scarves. In this spirit, making your collection as inclusive as possible is key if you want to boost your sales. So, consider setting up a line of scarves including warm, chunky ones and the chiffon or silk variety that have a Parisian flair. Also, do not forget to diversify their materials and colors. Fake fur, in particular, is very popular nowadays.
If you plan on investing in an evening wear line, then you cannot go wrong with tiered dress. Tiered dresses are all the rage in 2020 thanks to their continuous appearance during fashion shows. Not only are they super flattering, but they also give an air of elegance. Interestingly, you can match this design with either the neon colors or pastel hues that we mentioned above. Tiered dresses also work well with black and white if you are going for a classic look.
Having your own clothing business is hard work, but it can also be really fun because you will get to play with fabrics, prints, and patterns. When creating a collection, you must include the year’s hottest trends along with the timeless styles if you want customers to buy your clothes. So, whether you are a sucker for crazy colors and prints or you are more into neutral shades and understated style, this year’s trends have something for everyone. From the disco collar to tiered dresses and neon shades, you have many options you can include in your line. Just make sure that you take your time experimenting with different types of fabrics and patterns to the desired result.
