Our Favourite Outfits Of 2020

Our Favourite Outfits Of 2020

Like everything, the pandemic has taken its toll on the fashion world this year, but that didn’t stop the usual roster of influencers and designers serving up some amazing looks. Here, SL’s Style Director Lu Hough and Fashion Assistant Polly Sayer discuss some of their favourites.

Look 1: Jeanette Madsen

Lu Hough: I love this more interesting take on a classic leather trousers and top combination. The over-the-top draping on the shoulders is everything – plus, the pleats on the trousers make them feel a bit different.

Polly Sayer: Trust Jeanette to bring out a bit of sartorial sunshine, and who’d have thought yellow and black went so well together? This pastel blouse really works when combined with tough leather trousers.

Look 2: Grece Ghanem

LH: Split hem styles have been the must-have trousers of 2020 and Grece proves you can pull them off at any age with fashion-forward accessories, like these cult Bottega Veneta pieces.

PS: A white shirt and black trousers is a combination that runs the risk of looking dull, but thanks to the split hem detail and luxe accessories, this is anything but.

Look 3: Camille Charriere

LH: I don’t even have the words to describe how amazing this is – it’s probably my look of the year. The proportions, the logo tights, the knitted two piece, it’s just so chic. It also proves you don't need heel to feel dressed up – a pair of great flats can work just as hard in your wardrobe.

PS: Just. Obsessed. From the tweed two piece, to the tights and pointed flats, I love every detail about this look – it’s cheeky, preppy and everything I want to be wearing right now.

Look 4: Giorgia Tordini

LH: Giorgia looks amazing in everything, but I particularly love this look as it’s so unexpected. There are no guarantees a pink chunky roll neck will work with a vinyl skirt and boots, but if the top was a simple silk blouse, this look wouldn’t have nearly the same impact. That cool sparkly bag deserves a mention, too. 

PS: Love love love! Proving you don’t have to wear a dress and heels on a night out to look glam, the hot pink knit combined with knee-high boots is sexy, yet cosy. Plus, the glitzy bag makes it feel a bit dressier.

Look 5: Tiffany Hsu 

LH: I love the relaxed proportions of this look. While a tonal colour palette is always a shortcut to looking pulled together, the printed, textured coat takes it up a gear. Super cool.

PS: I never knew I needed a pink tiger print coat before now, but I absolutely do. Going tonal when you’re wearing a brighter shade automatically feels a bit more directional, but the print really makes the look pop.

Look 6: Amy Lefevre

LH: I don’t think there are many people who would think about tucking a metallic leather trouser into a knee-high boot, but Amy pulls it off. Ensuring the belt is the same colour as the boots keeps things coherent, while a tonal top half balances out the trousers. 

PS: Metallic trousers aren’t just for nights out and I love how Amy has styled them to add interest to an otherwise classic winter outfit. Extra style points for that fedora, too.

Look 7: Leia Sfez

LH: With everyone wanting to dress comfortably this year, sweater dresses have really come into their own. Leia’s look proves they can look super chic just by adding a cool shoe. 

PS: This Nanushka dress has been on my wish list ever since I first saw Leia wear it – I love its fluted sleeves and the way she’s styled it with a pair of chunky sandals. Simple, but effective.

Look 8: Loulou De Saison

LH: This look epitomises how to dress up athleisure. The accessories really do the talking here, which is what Chloe is so well known for – and the Chanel belt is fabulous. 

PS: Post-lockdown, we’ve all been looking for ways to dress up our loungewear and this is the best take I’ve come across. The accessories are what make it for me, from the barely-there heels to the belt.

Look 9: Erna Leon 

LH: Erna has totally nailed this look. The mix of textures are what does it for me, from leather to satin to croc boots. All of those components keep things interesting. 

PS: Tonal dressing at its finest. I love the balance of an ultra-feminine satin skirt with a utility style overshirt. Plus, we’ve all lusted after those Paris Texas boots – hopefully Santa takes the hint…

Look 10: Pernille Teisbaek 

LH: Everyone knows an oversized collar can make a look feel more interesting, plus pearl earrings and a pop of colour make the leather trousers feel more feminine, here. I love this look so much and it’s one I’ve been trying to replicate all year. 

PS: Featuring the Ganni collar blouse that inspired countless high-street dupes, Pernille has styled it to perfection with a black knit and leather trousers. The pop of red with those shoes is a great finishing touch, too.

Look 11: Rabea Schif

LH: I love how Rabea isn’t afraid to experiment with colour and this is a lesson in how to clash prints correctly. The gold accents in the bag and shoes really pull the look together – it’s an unexpected take, but it totally works.

PS: What I love about Rabea is that her style is truly original. On paper, those two prints shouldn’t go together but they totally do, thanks to a classic bag and preppy loafers which help pull everything together. She inspires me to be braver with my choices, too.

Look 12:  Ellie Delphine

LH: Another way to jazz up your loungewear, Ellie demonstrates a bit of feather trim and those bright pink Amina Muaddi shoes will make any look feel more glamorous. 

PS: Ellie often wears a lot of colour, so this look is relatively understated for her, but the feather trim and bright pink shoes make it anything but dull.

Look 13: Charlotte Groeneveld

LH: The textures and proportions are what make this look so cool. I love that she’s gone for a longer knit over the dress which makes it feel more directional. Those Khaite boots were a great choice, too – they really make the outfit pop and add a fashion girl touch. 

PS: I’d forgotten how great this outfit was until I spotted it in my Instagram saves. From the animal print boots to the pink skirt, it’s fun and totally replicable using pieces you probably already have in your own wardrobe. I’ll be trying something similar in the New Year when I need to liven up my winter outfits.
