We are spoiled with mild winters and wardrobes that never have to deal with low temperatures.
But what about the warm season? This one we get very well, and we enjoy every little bit of the trends it brings. Shall we get spring ready, then?
Thanks to the ongoing pandemic, this is a new season like no other. Things were done differently, and the spring and summer 2021 fashion shows were showcased in various ways. New York and London opted for predominantly digital events, while Milan and Paris saw strict social distancing measures for some of the brands that opted to carry on with their shows.
Despite how the collections were presented, the new season’s fashion trends made their way out and straight onto our most-wanted list. Our Style Focus pages are dedicated to some of the most significant styles to follow but, as they say, the devil’s in the details, so are the most fashionable trends!
Here are some of the small stylish details we spotted that will be the cherry on top of your SS2021 looks. Channel the fashionista in you and embrace the styles that speak to your heart (and pocket or existing wardrobe).
“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.” — Lauren Hutton
WE ALL NEED THAT FRIEND WITH THE BROADEST SHOULDERS FOR US CRY ON WHEN NECESSARY; HOWEVER, WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING, HAVING A SHOULDER TO CRY ON HAS BECOME A LUXURY. WE BELIEVE THAT TO COMPENSATE FOR THE LACK OF COMFORTING SHOULDERS, DESIGNERS DECIDED TO FOCUS ON THIS PART OF THE BODY FOR A STYLISH AND BOLD LOOK.
DURING THE WARMER DAYS, SHOWING SOME SKIN IS PART OF THE PROTOCOL. ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN EYECATCHING ELEMENT OR SOME SUMMER INSPIRATION? CUT-OUT DETAILS ARE SENSIBLY PLACED TO CELEBRATE FASHION AND ITS CREATIVITY.
The Perfect Match
WE GO BACK IN TIME AND REVISIT ONE OF THE 80S’ MOST ELEGANT TRENDS: MATCHING SETS! A SOLUTION FOR LADIES WHO LIKE TO LOOK STYLISH, BUT DON’T KNOW HOW TO MIX AND MATCH THEIR CLOTHES. WE ENJOY AMPING UP THESE PREPLANNED LOOKS WITH A CHUNKY NECKLACE.
Ladylike with a Twist
DRESSES ARE A STAPLE IN EVERY FEMININE WARDROBE, FLOOR TOUCHING, MIDI, OR EVEN A SHORT VERSION. AND THEY COME IN A VARIETY OF STYLES, OUR PICK-SHIRT-DRESSES! THEY BORROW BUTTONS AND COLLARS FOR A MASCULINE SPIN AND ARE EASY TO WEAR. THROW A BELT AROUND YOUR WAIST, AND YOU ARE READY TO START YOUR DAY IN A SMARTLOOKING OUTFIT.
COMFORT IS THE WORD OF THE SEASON AND ADDING ATHLETIC FEATURES TO YOUR LOOK IS ALL YOU NEED TO REPRESENT THIS NEW FASHION REALITY. WE WANT TO LOOK STYLISH WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON THE LAID-BACK STYLE THAT WE’VE BECOME SO USED WITH THE PAST MONTHS’ #STAYHOME MOVEMENT. COMFY AND SNAZZY – CHECKED!
And, talking about details, we need to turn our attention to the items that play the supporting role – accessories.
THE MACRAMÉ TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SPOTTED IN EVERY FASHION CAPITAL AND, DESPITE NOT BEING A NOVELTY, IT HAS BEEN EXAGGERATED THIS TIME. IN THIS SCENARIO, WE GO FOR THE FISHERMAN’S NET HANDBAG AS YOUR COOL CARRIER FOR A SUNNY SUMMER DAY
A Touch of Orange
TANGERINE IS THE GO-TO HUE TO ADD A FUN AND STRIKING FACTOR TO ANY LOOK. BEST PAIRED WITH WHITE AND KHAKI, THIS IS THE FINAL FLOURISH TO A FLAWLESS HOLIDAY LOOK – EVEN IF YOU ARE HOLIDAYING IN YOUR BACK GARDEN!
FLATFORMS ARE ELEVATING YOUR LOOKS THIS SEASON IN A FASHIONABLE WAY. THIS FOOTWEAR REPLACES KILLER HEELS ADDING THE HEIGHT WITHOUT LOSING THE COMFORT OF FLAT SHOES. WOULD YOU GIVE IT A TRY?
DANGLING MINI-BAGS ARE REPLACING LONG NECKLACES FOR A CURIOUS ACCENT ON A CASUAL OUTFIT. THEY CAN DOUBLE THEIR USE AS AN AIRPOD KEEPER OR FOR BARE MINIMUM DOCUMENTS AND MAKEUP. A PRACTICAL WAY TO LOOK STYLISH AND KEEP YOUR BELONGINGS CLOSE BY.
BELTS ARE THE UNDERDOG ACCESSORY IN THE FASHION WORLD AND EASILY OVERLOOKED, BUT EACH YEAR DESIGNERS PROVE THEIR IMPORTANCE IN CREATING SHAPE FOR THE BODY. NOT BLESSED WITH A THIN WAIST? FAKE IT WITH A BELT. OR DO YOU HAVE THAT GREAT WAIST? EMPHASISE IT WITH A SHOWY STRAP
WHEN YOU THINK OF SUMMER, YOUR MIND GOES STRAIGHT TO SANDALS – WRONG! THIS YEAR, THINK MORE OF BOOTS. COWBOY AND PILLOW BOOTS ARE THE FAVE FOOTWEAR WHEN LOOKING FOR AN EDGIER WAY OF FINALISING YOUR LOOK.
