“After weeks of casual stay-at-home attire (shout out to our most loyal sweatpants and pajamas), the need for easy, stylish, single-item outfits is more essential than ever,” says Matthew Friedman, a spokesperson for retailer Milly oh behalf of its design and creative team.

That’s why one of the unexpected trends for summer 2020 is stay-at-home, effortless shirt- and nightgown-inspired dresses. Whether you’re still working from home while social distancing and don’t need anything too professional for those Zoom calls or are chasing kids around in the heat, comfort is key — now more than ever before.

The ‘must- have' trends or the ‘in- season’ pieces feel very obsolete.

Jinaki designer Sharufa Rashied-Walker says that, to her, the biggest fashion trend of summer 2020 has been “anything goes” as people adjust to their lives turning upside down this year. “As we've had to adapt to new ways of living, the ‘must-have' trends or the ‘in-season’ pieces feel very obsolete,” she says. “We've been forced to take a look at what really matters in our lives and, for some, fashion doesn't have as strong of a hold on our priorities as it once did.”

Instead, as many across the country traded suits for loungewear or fancy dresses for laid-back athleisure wear, she’s seen fashion this summer turning to freedom: Wear what makes you happy. “Gone are the days of excessive buying and hoarding of garments that end up in landfills,” she says. “I think that tie-dye, crochet, neon and statement sleeves are trends that are uplifting, colorful, fun and can provide some escapism or optimism for better days ahead. I also think that stay-at-home ease is definitely here to stay for the summer and beyond!”

How to shop for summer dresses during coronavirus

Go for the practical. “These times are not built for complicated fashion — seek out brands that have a consistent fit, silhouettes that flatter your body type and color palettes and prints that lift your spirits,” says Kathryn Sukey, head of design at Draper James. “If you look good, you feel good and you can go out into the world to do good.”

Take a chance. Right now is the perfect moment to be experimental with your personal style, says Poshmark seller stylist, Allyn Wang, and anything that boosts your mood goes. “If you want to wear a maxi dress while watching Netflix, go for it. If you want to wear heels with a matching sweat suit to get the mail, do it,” she says. “We’ll be staying home more than usual, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun.”

  MLB, MLBPA reportedly making final negotiation effort Are your plants not looking as lush and colorful as you hoped? Make sure you haven't made any of these missteps.

Focus on what sparks joy. It’s very important to buy items that will make you feel good and that you love, more so now than ever. “If you are going to spend money on clothes, the number one rule is to ‘feel you’ and be comfortable,” says stylist and designer Paulina Castro.

Picture it how you’ll wear it. “Look for practical pieces that you can wear in many different ways and different occasions with items that you already own in your closet,” says Castro.

Go for transitional pieces. Castro recommends choosing pieces that you can wear from daytime to evening to help make life a bit easier — advice we could all use right now.

Avoid buying items just because they’re trendy. Instead, when you try clothes on, look for pieces, fabrics and colors that flatter your figure and accentuate your features. This way, you will get the most wear out of whatever it is you’re investing in.
