Staring at these to remind ourselves what "fashion" is.
We're patiently awaiting summer and all it has to offer: no makeup (although we're doing that already), a healthy diet of watermelon and wine, and the end-of-quarantine dream of being on the beach with, gasp, people.
It may be another few weeks, or months before we can say goodbye to our tie-dyed loungewear, elasticated waists and pasta-stained hoodies for good but that doesn't mean we can't look ahead to what our summer wardrobes will consist of.
The summer trends for 2020 are, to say the least, varied, vast and very much going to suit your style, whatever that may be. From the new little black dress to torso ruching, this season's trends are for everybody. But with so much choice and the fact we've got nowhere to go to show off our new season buys - figuring out what to wear can be overwhelming.
The trick here is to embrace the notoriously tricky transitional period and invest in summer trends that will work both now, as you lounge at home and as soon as we're all allowed back outside again. It's also the perfect time to experiment with what trends will and will not work for you.
Keep on scrolling to see the 9 key trends to take for a test drive ahead of the new season.
white on time
Fashion decrees that everyone should own at least one little black dress, but there's an equally viable case to be made for the little white dress. Not that it has to be little (especially if you're wearing your LWD in the city rather than at the beach), but as long as it's crisp and bright white, then you're good to go.
At face value, a dress might look and feel fancy — and that's the ultimate con that dress-wearers have pulled. In fact, it's one of the easiest things in the world to wear and requires the least amount of effort. In short: throw it on and go. It's that simple.

You'd be forgiven for shuttering at the idea of wearing a sheer blouse or dress. But 2020's take on sheer is less Regina George's bra top and more subtle like the number above. Just be sure to wear a nude bra underneath.
