Spring/Summer 2021 Trends We’re Most Looking Forward To

A new year typically means setting meaningful intentions and goals that invariably become “out of sight, out of mind” by February. If your new year goals include wearing more stylish garb, then 2021 is your big chance to spice up your attire, because let’s be honest, you’ve probably been sporting a ratty t-shirt and sweats since mid April. Incorporate some of our favorite trends to ensure you have a productive AND stylish 2021.

Monochromatic Black & White

Trendy, feminine, edgy, and sleek describe everyone’s favorite cult classic color combo: black and white. Pair a crisp, white oxford button down with edgy black accessories for a fun day time look and throw on a layered tulle dress or a form-fitting leather number for that happy hour zoom call with the girls.

Baggy Trousers

Move over cigarette pants, baggy trousers are here to stay! Channel your inner 90s rock star and pair your pants with a graphic tee and platform sneakers or a fitted top and leather blazer for the perfect weekend look. In the words of Shia LaBeouf, “Just Do It!”

Crisscrossing cords

Nothing takes us back to our ballet days like seeing tie around sweaters! Don’t pair yours with tights and slippers, take a page from Michael Kors or Supriya Lele and couple it with a sleek midi skirt.

Casual Disco Fever

Let’s boogie on into 2021! Pay hommage to the 70’s disco nightlife with hints of sequins and heeled boots. Bonus points if you bust a move when everyone’s looking!

This ain’t your great great, great grandma’s corset. There is something delicate yet edgy about a modern corset that makes it the perfect spring and summer staple accessory. Dress it up with heels and a tulle skirt or keep it casual with a button down and a pair of trousers.

Feather Frenzy

A cousin to the fringe trend, the feather frenzy not only allows you to turn your sleepwear into day wear, but adds a bit of pizzazz to any skirt, top, or pant leg.
