The year 2020 may have been a relatively quiet period for the fashion world, but new trends are popping up this 2021. Although runways are still not filled with the usual audiences looking forward to the next season’s trends, fashion moguls have already released some of their collections for this year’s summer and spring seasons. Here are some of the latest trends in fashion, as shown in the SS21 Fashion Weeks.
The previous year has taught us that fashion is not just about beauty but protection as well. This year, face masks invaded the runways. While created to protect against viruses that may gain access through the mouth and nose, these facial coverings have gained popularity as a fashion trend. Pair these with your favorite trench coat and boots, or go for a women’s pullover that complements their colors and designs.
Bulky jackets and large boyfriend blazers that have been popular in the 80s are making a comeback this season. Pair them with leather shorts or straight-leg trousers for an ultra-modern look. To create an illusion of elongated legs, you can add shoulder pads and complete your outfit with your favorite accessories. Colors that will best suit this style are powder blue, neutral colors, and charcoal black.
A headscarf is not only fashionable; it is versatile as well, making it a timeless accessory across the ages. Headscarves are commonly used by women who work in the countryside fields to protect their head and hair from both the sun and dirt. Their adaptation into the fashion world was met with an eagerness not only by popular celebrities but also by ordinary citizens. Iconic actresses, such as Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, Ingrid Bergman, Brigitte Bardot, and Grace Kelly, have made these simple accessories an elegant addition to any ensemble during their time. Now, headscarves are making a comeback in the fashion world. The versatility of these accessories makes them a staple in any fashion monger’s closet. They can be donned with any outfit and worn as a headband, necktie, or a head wrap.
Clothes made from this material never go totally out of style. No matter the situation the world is in, leather will always have a place in everyone’s closet. Although many fashion designers were unable to show their new collections in the runways this year, leather continues to prove that it is a classic fashion staple that can luxe up anyone’s everyday ensemble. Whether you are wearing a midi dress, a simple shirt, or turtlenecks, you can always amp up your look with leather blazers or leather coats. Straight leg pants made from this material are also in.
Who doesn’t love denim? A classic that can be worn day in and day out, denim continues to rise in popularity even in the first quarter of 2021. Versatile and trendy at the same time, it can be worn on any occasion and in any weather. Denim can be worn in any form, be it a dress, a skirt, pair of pants, a vest, or even a jacket. It can also be paired with any outfit.
Crochet was a rising style in 2020, but it does not seem to lose its popularity even as the first quarter of 2021 came. Crocheted fashion pieces range from leggings to skirts to swimsuits. Such outfits have been worn by celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Kourtney Kardashian, and Vanessa Hudgens. These fashionable outfits can be worn just about anywhere, be it on the streets, in music festivals, or even on the beach. Crocheted fashion pieces can be a little challenging to pull off, but it can look elegant and whimsical with the right accessory.
Classic prints and patterns are popping up everywhere. From shirts to coats and even jackets, prints are becoming a trend in many fashion lovers’ closets.
