Shake off the dust on your vests from yesteryear, because this garment made a comeback on the spring 2020 runways. Whether you opt for a sexy tuxedo design sans shirt like Kaia Gerber at Saint Laurent or a furry number for those colder months (see Coach), a vest is the optimal layering piece.

Keeping cool won't be an issue in spring/summer 2020 thanks to crochet. You'll find this fabric is still in style for next season, with even better designs coming your way.

Bralettes Under Blazers

As seen at Staud, Michael Kors, Jonathan Simhaki, and Jason Wu

The only way to wear a blazer next season is with a bralette. (Save this for your off-duty days, of course.) Designers played with the idea of showing off your midriff while still making you feel covered up. Take cues from Kors and Wu and opt for high-waisted bottoms for more coverage.

If your blazer is plainer, show some fierceness underneath with a tiger printed bra. Bonus points if you work the tiger print into your bottoms or accessories too.

Christian Dior J'ADIOR Knit Bra

Since this Dior knit bra is an investment, here are some ideas for how to wear it aside from under a blazer. You can style it over a button-up, let it peek out from underneath a silk shirt, wear it over a turtleneck sweater, or pair it as is with a high-waisted trouser.

Buttery Soft Leather

As seen at Khaite, Kate Spade, Sally LaPointe, and Coach 1941

There's no mistaking that leather—including vegan or faux—is the one material everyone's excited to work with in 2020. Though Nanushka practically built its brand on this look, more and more designers are finding new ways to incorporate the buttery soft material into their pieces. Personally, I am obsessed with that Kate Spade olive leather dress.

Corsets

As seen at Dion Lee, Brock Collection, Jason Wu, and Christian Siriano

For spring, there will be a greater emphasize on defining one's silhouette. An easy way to do this is with a corset, which came in all forms on the runway. Brock Collection made the most romantic Victorian-esque top while Siriano showcased a more bare-bones structure. Get ready to cinch everything in.
