All The Top Fashion Trends To Watch Out For In 2021!
From tailored serious shorts, romantic cut-out dresses, strappy shoes, to larger-than-life bags, here's everything you need to know about 2021's biggest style trends.
This year, we're bound for brighter days ahead but we're most excited for a year-worth of looks we can all wear at home and outdoors. We took cues from a number of digital runway shows from last year and we made sure to include trends that you can wear for work-from-home or even during your downtime.
From sensual date-approved tops, tailored WFH shorts, matching sets for outdoors, to summer ready cut-out dresses, and more, we made sure that there's something for everyone in our style forecast this year. The keywords are tried-and-tested and long-lasting. When it comes to bags that will get you through the entire year, we're seeing the comeback of large carry-alls in response to our need for functional bags. Micro purses just won't work anymore since we're still carrying around sanitizers, UV light disinfectants, extra face masks, face shields, and other essentials for the rest of the year. Who would've thought that we've gone through obsessing over micro purses for years only to come back to our good old carry-alls? When it comes to footwear, we're taking the stylish route to flats or barely-there sandals for comfort. With sneaker releases coming from left and right, it won't hurt to skip the hype and try out something different like a pair of square toe sandals.
Do take your time and go through each style trend down below. Feel free to save each photo in your Pinterest account for future reference!
Ruched Top 2.0
Worn by Bella Hadid on her 24th birthday late last year, this ‘60s ruched top silhouette is getting its much-deserved update this year. The exaggerated V-neckline and the low-back combo on this top speaks volumes. We predict that by the end of this year, you’d be seeing versions of these in bralettes, tops, or even in dresses! Pair this top with wide-leg trousers and layers of gold jewelry. You can even take an extra step and tie a scarf around your hair as seen in the photo above.
Floss For Days
For some reason, we’re extremely obsessed with tie-up tops lately! We’re not sure if it’s because of a number of exposed thong looks or tie-up tops and shoes we’ve seeing in the recent Jacquemus or Versace runway shows but we’re sure that we will be seeing this trend all year long. Brave the waters and pair this with oversized denim jeans or a mid-length skirt!
Believe it or not, we can see this trend working in 2021. The boyfriend/bermuda/serious shorts is taking our wardrobe by storm. It makes sense because we would rather be in shorts rather than in trousers at home! But this tailored piece fits well for those who still want to look put together even at home. And yes, you can even pair it with a matching single or double-breasted blazer, add a graphic shirt or plus points if you opt for a ruched top or a tie-up top!
Loungewear and sleepwear are still taking over our wardrobes this year but we thankfully have this sleeper chic alternative for outdoor festivities or meetings that require more polished looks. PRO Tip: Size up to keep it cool. Dress it up with a pair of platform loafers or dress it down with a pair of Suicokes! Thank us later.
Summer is just around the corner and we can’t help but swoon over the cut-out dress trend already. There’s no reason not to hop on this trend because we’ve been itching for that perfect summer dress fling since last year. Plus points if you got the exact dress in the photo because you’ll for sure win heart eyes all summer with this look.
We’re taking our strappy shoe obsession to 2021 just because there are still so many styles to choose from. With a number of colors, design, and heel height to consider, we think it’s best to keep this love going until further notice. We are particularly keen towards square-toed sandals the most! What’s your favorite silhouette so far?
Whoever said that they’ve seen the last of these preppy shoes, think again. The Mary Jane flats are making a comeback this year! Best worn with a pair of high-waist denim jeans, a mid-length skirt, or a matching set of blazer and tailored shorts, this piece is definitely the most underrated shoe silhouette ever. Not to mention the amount of comfort and polish it gives to any wearer. Sorry to sneakers but we found our new shoe fling!
Lady of the Hour
Remember when we all had our eyes on the then trending mini shoulder bags from 2018 up to 2020? It’s time to consider a style update because we found the alternative that best suits you’re dressed up ensembles. Gucci and Prada are both pushing the envelope when it comes to reintroducing their era-defining designs with the Jackie 1961 and the Cleo bag. Spacious and modish when paired with both street or high-fashion looks, these bags are definitely worth every cent.
Large and In-charge
2021 is definitely the year of larger-than-life bags. It's time to make use of your carry-alls and medium to large-sized shoulder bags because you'll be needing them this year. Luxury brands such as Bottega Veneta, Valentino, Ports 1961, and the like were the frontrunners of this trend during their respective S/S 2021 runway shows last year. Now is definitely the time to keep all of your essentials close!
