It’s safe to say that the past 12 months have been challenging and limited when it comes to laughs. But, as summer approaches things are looking up! This new-found positivity has been captured by the fashion industry and the runways are full of amazing styles that are sure to put a smile on your face. These are our six favourite fashion trends of the moment, that will ensure your outfit is always à la mode!
We know what you’re thinking, pastel tones have been in fashion for years – and you’d be right. However, for Spring/Summer 2021, pastels have taken on a new lease of life. Perfect for the warmer months, stunning sorbet and ice cream shades are all the rage. Think mint choc chip, raspberry ripple and Cornish vanilla. Light lavender and cool mint green are definitely the biggest shades of the season and with this trend, it’s all about being bold with whole outfits in the same chic colourway.
Another huge trend for the summer season is sheer fabrics. Eye-catching tulles and textural netting have taken the catwalks by storm and are now hitting the streets. While this trend might not be for everyone, it’s an easy one to replicate – even if you prefer to cover up a little. Bold types can get playful with sheer dresses and even crop tops (another big trend right now), while slightly see-through cardigans are jackets with sheer panels are perfect for the more modest dresser.
The last 12 months might have been drab, but the next 12 are set to be colourful and fun. Playful prints are making waves across the fashion industry, and we’re all for it. The ultimate escapism, loud and proud prints will bring the beach to you and keep summer going long after August. Think modern Hawaiian shirts and vivid dresses adorned with oversized prints. How’s that for mood-boosting?
Though life isn’t black and white, the fashion industry certainly is! This season, black and white ensembles will be big news. From chequerboard dresses with a 60s twist, to layering of block monochrome items, there are plenty of ways to replicate this look. Pair black jeans with a crisp white top and bag, or opt for a LBD with white accessories. This trend is also perfect for those that prefer to leave colourful prints well alone.
As the world begins to open up again, it’s no wonder we’re all keen to dress up and get out there, which is where this fashion trend was born. From sequined embellishments to glistening metallic fabrics, this trend is all about party vibes and shimmering finishes. While this look is more for evenings out, you could also bring some metallic glamour into your day-to-day wardrobe to keep the party going.
You probably already know that the era of the skinny jean is over, but so too is the reign of light coloured-denim. This season, you should be opting for baggy boyfriend jeans and oversized jackets in deep denim hues. Plus, this trend is all about casual looks and rustic finishes. Forget polished outfits and go with the flow.
