The Trendstop team give FashionUnited readers an exclusive look at three key apparel themes that will be informing the womenswear market into Fall Winter 2019-20 and beyond. A focus on strong yet simple, silhouettes enhanced through premium fabrications runs throughout seasonal womenswear. Soft structure enhances the feminine aspects of fashion's biggest stories, evolving and adapting key trends with new offerings in terms of shape and form. Our curated catwalk trend reports and dedicated galleries evaluate each trend's commercial value and longevity, giving you the best possible basis for your decision making.
This week Trendstop present three influential FW19-20 womenswear looks spanning the formal and casual sectors. Sportswear evolves with a cleaner feel in Refined Sports Shapes while Empowering Feminine Tailoring reinvents suiting for the contemporary woman. The Wanderer Tunic provides transseasonal flexibility with new layering opportunities.
Refined Sports Shapes
The long-running and hugely successful sportswear movement continues its evolution into Fall Winter 2019-20 with a lighter and more refined touch. A clean, minimalist aesthetic is softened by voluminous proportions and tactile fabrications for a relaxed yet feminine take on street infused athleisure pieces.

Empowered Feminine Tailoring
Tailoring reflects a new era of womanhood. Formal structure with an empowering sensibility introduces a modern femininity through considered draping, twisted and gathered waist details and volume sleeves. Shift dresses, suiting and smart co-ords gain further fluidity through the use of luxe, flowing fabrications.

The Wanderer Tunic
Nomadic influences traverse the seasons with longline, cocooning silhouettes that tap into the season's layering trend and warming earthy tones. Fine wools and jersey tunic shapes take inspiration from travelers around the globe, incorporating subtle detailing and elements from traditional dress.
