When it comes to brands that create pieces we never knew we needed but then, upon seeing them, we don't know how we could ever live without, & Other Stories is the first that comes to mind. Take its varsity knit, for example—never before did we entertain the thought of wearing one, but & Other Stories' iteration fast became a must-have. The same goes for its wool blazer, which has won over an impressive legion of fans. Now, though, the high-street brand has gone a step further and already ticked off all of spring/summer 2020's noteworthiest trends in its new collection.
From the new statement hues and the transeasonal shoes guaranteed to tide you over until summer to the coolest outfit-elevating accessory and a fresh take on a classic print, there's no 2020 trend & Other Stories can't handle. Keep scrolling to see and shop them for yourselves, and rest assured you'll look the part all season long.
Fashion girls are often drawn to the more off-beat trends, and sage is certainly one of them. While the hue began to gain momentum in 2019, sage is set to dominate in 2020.

2. COWBOY BOOTS
While we still find ourselves in that awkward period between winter and spring, boots remain a must. No style is more in-demand right now than cowboy boots, and & Other Stories has plenty of pairs to choose from. Our favourites are of the cream and black varieties.

The jumpsuit was the It buy of summer 2019, and its reign is set to continue well into 2020. Why not opt for a pretty pastel hue for a fresh take on the trend. Otherwise, you can always rely on timeless beige, denim and black.
