Press Refresh on Spring Fashion Trends!

Get ready to update your wardrobe, with the new season fashion trends for this Spring Summer 2020.

Wollongong Central’s Resident Stylist Jade Sardon from STYLED BY JADE & Co is here to share the trends you will be seeing in stores.


The fun and feminine 80’s style puff sleeve is here to stay carried over from winter fashion trends. From a basic tee, to a formal dress, puff sleeves are the must have silhouette for the season.

Wearing a puff sleeve adds drama and volume to your shoulders drawing the eye up and giving the illusion of a smaller waist.
This season the bigger the sleeve the better. For less intimidating styles, you may wish to opt for a more gradual down your arm silhouette.
Puffed Sleeves

This Spring Summer is all about shorts. Always a summertime staple, stores are filled with many different short styles from bermuda shorts to short shorts.

With shorts for every occasion this season we are seeing shorts worn for corporate wear, lounge wear and beachwear.

The very flattering bermuda length shorts are extremely popular this season. Pair your tailored bermuda shorts with a crop top and blazer to get the look.

Denim shorts remain forever in fashion. This season you can go super short or knee length depending on your personal preference.

For a more modern look, the paperbag shorts are extremely flattering. They are high waisted and tie with a bow or elastic feature, emphasising your waist. Wear them casually with your fav tee and sneaker, or team them back with a delicate top and sandal.
