After a year of staying indoors, it’s time to celebrate fashion and the latest trends. Taking inspiration from almost every decade, there are so many new ways to style your favorite colors and pieces. Express your personality, with a sleek bucket hat, or a neutral tracksuit with overcoats. It’s time to revisit the classic 2000s pastel shades and 50s-inspired headscarves. Checkout the trends that are going viral in 2021.
1. Pop Color Checks:
Bright colored checks are some of the latest trends to pop up in the fashion scene. This retro-inspired style is a cute way to brighten up your regular ensemble, and it’s easy to work it for every season. Try a bright pair of pants with a matching sweater and shoes, or make a plaid blouse the spotlight for a monochrome outfit. Complete the look with sneakers, or heels – there is a multitude of ways you can wear pop color checks, no matter your preference. You can style them up or down and instantly turn heads wherever you go.
2. Neutral Co-Ord Sets
Summer or winter, spring or fall, this trend has been on our radar for a while, and it’s easy to see why it’s sticking around. Neutrals are a total classic in the industry right now, so why not pair all soft tones together? There are plenty of ways you can rock this idea – from a grey knot dress and matching sweater to a crop top paired with slouchy sweatpants and a cardigan. If you enjoy a pop of color, wear coordinating shoes and a bag in a rich hue such as brown, navy, or gold. It’s a timeless style that will always look chic and sophisticated.
3. Large Floral Prints
We’re bringing back the 90s and 2000s in a big way, so why not start with the large flower pattern we know and love? This iconic mod-inspired print is gorgeous and fashionable, meaning you can style it with almost anything and look adorable. Pair a micro mini skirt and bold T-shirt in matching shades, or coordinate a cropped sweater and maxi skirt for an off-duty model feel. This is the perfect way to express yourself and celebrate the beautiful things in life.
4. Pastel Colors All Over
This season is all about looking effortlessly chic and cute, which is the perfect reason to try pastel ensembles. The upgraded edition of the soft and buttery colors looks fantastic when combined in a single outfit, and you can find a way to wear it every season. Try a pair of lemon trousers and a lavender shirt, or add a bright pop of checked pants and chunky sneakers for the early 2000s feel. You can mix and match with different hues to add a further dimension to a monochromatic outfit or even play with patterns for a quirky twist.
5. Tracksuit with Structured Coats
From the runways to the Instagram feeds, models and fashion lovers are rocking this trend. When it’s cold outside, and you want to stay warm, cozy, and look stylish, there’s no better option than wearing a tracksuit with a structured coat. When styling this funky combo, opt for shades that complement each other or are matching in tone. This way, you can add dimension to your outfit and look completely put together. Feel free to style it with sneakers or a set of chunky combat boots – this is an excellent way to recreate an off-duty model aesthetic and stay warm when the temperature drops.
6. Fluorescent Pops
Celebrate your favorite colors of the season by adding them to your wardrobe. This season, we love bright shades and patterns that make you stand out – so why not infuse them with your daily outfits? Try a neon green blazer with your usual black jeans and T-shirt, or swap out your tracksuit for a hot pink suit – these shades will have you feeling bright, bubbly, and ready to take on the day. Fashion is all about experimenting and trying out new ways to express yourself, so have fun with it!
Seeking inspiration from the likes of Grace Kelly in the 50s to fashion icons in the early 2000s, this trend has come and gone in the fashion world for nearly a century. We can easily understand why it keeps coming back – it looks so good. These headscarves are easy to style and look effortlessly chic with any outfit. Wrap a patterned scarf in half and place it on your head – find matching sunglasses, and voila, you’ve turned yourself into a Hollywood starlet or a runway model.
8. Androgynous Style
Androgyny has been a staple trend in the fashion world since the 1930s. This aesthetic is coming back in a big way, from oversized suits to mixing and matching shirts and blazers. This year we are loving straight-leg pants with unisex t-shirts, bomber jackets and turtlenecks, and 80s-inspired tailoring. Try working them in neutral shades, and add a pop of color like red or green for a real statement. When it comes to fashion, putting yourself out of your comfort zone and trying new things is the best way to experiment with your style – don’t be afraid to mix things up, play with gender and have some fun!
9. Wide Leg Jeans
Sorry skinny leg pants, but it’s time for wide-leg jeans to rule supreme. This season it’s all about taking inspiration from the early 2000s, and what better way to celebrate this era in fashion than with one of its most prominent trends? Sitting high on the waist and flaring out past the knees, these bottoms elongate your legs and give off a relaxed 70s vibe. You can style them with a cropped sweater or a singlet, or even an oversized shirt or cardigan. Play with colors and have some fun with different patterns and styles – we guarantee they will become your go-to choice for a day out with friends or to brunch.
10. Pastel Color Bucket Hats
Another trend that has stuck around for some time is the bucket hat, but we’re giving it a retro twist this year. Pastel shades like lavender, lemon, and baby pink are great to play with, and they look so cute when paired with coordinating hues. Match your accessory to your shirt, bag, or entire ensemble to elevate your style aesthetic and tie the outfit together. Wear your hair out to frame your face, keeping the brim sitting just above your eyebrows to showcase your stunning features. There’s no better way to stay SunSmart and look effortlessly flawless!
