Each new season is rich in an incredible variety of current trends - some designers suggest going back several decades, while others draw inspiration from archival collections, remaking garments that may have been worn by their grandmothers in a modern way. And someone completely destroys all stereotypes, offering to look at this or that fashion phenomenon from a new angle. Many trends from the fall 2020 runways remain at the peak of popularity for several seasons in a row – there is a top 3 of them.

It's not a big deal to explain the durability of this trend - fringe is an element of many styles from Western to boho-chic and enlivens even the most discreet and minimalist outfit. This season, designers have actively used this element in its various forms: short and long, made of threads, cords, cotton, suede, synthetic or leather patches. Diversity is observed not only in performance but also in application. Fringed coats, jackets, sweaters, dresses, boots, bags, and even belts - this from-head-to-toe décor is truly versatile, so feel free to buy at least one 'shaggy' item that will delight you no less than several seasons.

A check is another contender for the title of the most tenacious trend. Not a single fashion season is complete without checkered items that seem to live forever. This fall, the focus was on such Goose feet, Tartan, Windowpane, laconic "Prince of Wales" and multicolored Vichy check. Choose the appropriate type of check, depending on where you are going to go. The windowpane suit by Alexander McQueen as well as Ermanno Scervino plaid blazer coat are suitable for a business meeting. In its turn, a playful and flirty Vichy skirt from Christian Dior fall- winter 2020 collection is a win-win option for the more informal and relaxed events.

This season, Balenciaga, Balmain, Richard Quinn, and many other designers have redefined the stereotypical views on latex - most often associated with BDSM culture. They proved that if you know how 'to cook' this material right, it will look not less chic and elegant than leather or silk. Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of Saint Laurent, called latex 'new denim' suggesting to wear it with velvet dresses, plaid jackets, and pencil skirts.
