Jonathan Simkhai's delicate midi dress complete with a matching cardigan tied at the waist got the season's crochet trend just right.
3. Some Like It Hot Pants
Who wears short shorts? A lot of us, come next season. Hot pants staged a triumphant comeback on the spring 2020 runways—from itty bitty knit shorts at Hermès and Ferragamo to denim cutoffs at Rag & Bone and spandex at Brandon Maxwell. For those who'd rather ease into Daisy Duke status, Chanel styled the look with black tights.

Balance out the ultra-short shorts with long sleeves or a jacket on top, à la Isabel Marant.

Valentino knows this trend is at its best when it's go big or go home. A striking neon maxi dress is one way to make an entrance—and an exit.

Tom Ford offered a more playful take on the Bermuda suit—opting for a hot pink mismatched-fabric iteration.

Make it ultra feminine by styling a ruffle-embellished bra top with a high-waisted midi skirt, as spotted on the Lanvin runway.

Chanel's tiered maxi skirts are surprisingly versatile pieces for spring—dress them up with the right blouse and shoe, or make them more casual with a bra top and sandals.

If you don't have a black-tie event to tend to, take note from Attico and give the look a bit of edge by styling a glam feathered top with a cool pair of trousers or jeans.
