The best news of 2020? That this year is t over! Boy, was this a rollercoaster of emotions: we saw a pandemic change our life forever, controversies unfold in every corner, people taking to the streets to protest racial injustice, TikTok becoming an actual thing, and the fashion world seriously questioning their unsustainable practices. And most of us here are thinking it’s still March.

With my Skylight Fashion Recap, we want to retrace some of this year’s key themes and how they have been reflected in the fashion world. Here are some of the defining moments of 2020, and the brands, trends and icons that have made this year something to remember. Although honestly, we all cannot wait to leave 2020 behind. Here’s are the top five fashions to leave behind and step in the New year with the new fab you.

Plastic Shoes
Plastic pumps have been trendy for a few years, but instead of the see-through thigh-highs that Kim Kardashian rocked a few years ago, the trend will go chunkier. A good block heel is a godsend for even the most novice of heels wearer, but still this trend seems to only bring to mind sweaty, stinky feet.

Neons
We love a fashion risk. We love a color. But we don't not love a full neon suit -- or even a small neon flourish for that matter. We would never judge someone for going full-on with this bright look, but neon’s are best kept in small doses. A little might read as fun, while a lot might read as full-blown camp counselor.

Dad Shoes
Chunky, clunky sneakers will continue to be trendy this year -- although we're not exactly sure why that is. Sure, they probably offer some good arch support, but nothing screams I've got a cellphone clipped to the belt of my straight leg jeans like a pair of dad sneakers. These sneakers are truly atrocious.

Square Toe Heels
Who doesn't love the sleek, elegant lines a heel that comes to an end with a square toe? Square toe heels are only good for one thing: preventing hammer toes. Yep, the best part about a square toe heel is that toes can breathe and stretch. Just don't ask us to wear a pair for our Instagram grid --these shoes are meant for Stories only.

Crochet
A look for the woman who is still obsessed with Stevie Nicks, head-to-toe crochet or big crochet statement pieces will be all the rage for 2020. When done right, crochet can look chic, but when it's bad, it's really, really bad. Like blanket on Nana's old sofa bad. So, for those of us who are brave enough to give it a swing, just keep that in mind.
