Punk Vs. Prep – Fall 2020 Style Trends

August 30, 2020

I’ve been having fun looking at all the trends for the Fall 2020 season! There’s definitely some 80’s vibes going on, both 80’s punk and 80’s prep!  Sure, I put “VS” on the collage, but there’s no reason to pick just one!


punk vs. prep



Punk Details

Feeling like dressing with some edgy attitude? Look for punk details like studs, combat boots, skinny jeans, paper clip inspired jewelry, animal print, plaid, moto jackets, and band tees.



Prep Details

Feeling upper crust-y?  How about some handbands, pearls, plaid, classic coats, striped button ups, Bermuda shorts, and Penny Loafers. By the way, isn’t it interesting that plaid is totally BOTH?!


Do you lean toward one style over the other? Probably no secret which I tend toward, but I certainly am drooling over pieces in both categories!  What fall trends are you looking forward to, Dear Readers?


Fun & Fashion,

    Uhhh!! LOVE the penny loafers – must have for me and I will order them for delivery, so they will be waiting for me when I return to Denmark from my second home in Spain, Andalusia:-)

      Always a classic, and penny loafers are going to be big this fall, I think!
