- Knit sets
The cosiest trend for the year ahead, Katie Holmes led knit sets are everywhere. Double up matching your knit sweater with knit bralets, and knit midi skirt. Up the drama with a cropped tank and cardigan set. Knit skirts for the season comes in all forms and sizes, you can choose to go mini or midi with a slit on side. You can go for contrasting prints or choose a single colour to go monotone.
- Slouchy khakis
Skinny jeans and leggings just lost our undivided attention. With months of not wearing pants I don’t think any of us right now are ready to squeeze ourselves into a pair of denim for daily wear. Behold our beloved khakis, once a fashion foe now a fashion favourite. Team it up with cropped tops, graphic tee, layer with jacket, a button-down shirt, or a T-shirt. The combination of colors always works best for khakis. Top it off with heels and accessories if you want to dress it up!
- Romantic dresses
Very few occasions calls for dressing up, a small lunch, elegant dinner, at home cocktail with friends. So no we are not shying away from pulling out the glamorous and the prettiest dresses we’ve got. Dresses with broad necks that expose collar bones and with cuts near hips are the season’s sassiest and sexiest. For more drama choose shades of pinks, add ruffles and maybe a balloon sleeve or two.
- Yellow bags and yellow paring
If you are looking to invest on tiny arm candies or accessories to add a pop to your outfit yellow is the colour you should be looking for. Apart from it being the colour of the year 2021, a little shade of sunshine will do so well for a bright upgrade to any outfit.
- Sorbet the new neon
Candy land is the new neon town. Swap your daylight bright for calming sugary sorbets. Street styles to runways are embracing lilac, pinks, lemony yellows.
Apart from a slew of pastel shades in peach, lilac, sea-foam green and pink, many designers like Balmain, Moschino, Issabella Marant used the colour pallet to play with patterns on women’s suits, dresses and separates by adding patches, ruffles, polka dots, checks, bold piping on jackets, dresses, skirts etc.
- Totes and fringes
It goes without saying that for the following year we have many additional things to fit into our bags. Sanitisers, masks, sprays etc. So naturally the bags this season are designed to fit your needs fashionably. Huge tote bags with fringes were a big hit in both SS21 runways and the street fashion that followed. Leather totes that are quilted, logo infused totes, etc are its friendly subordinates that will work just as good for the year to come.
- Head scarves
Queen’s Gambit Beth inspired head scarves from the 50s and the 60s is back for the year. Silky, sleek and heavily printed, these scarves wrapped across your neck or around your head or just hanging loose from your bag. Try matching them with the colour of your shoes.
The key of the accessory is to coordinate and elevate an ensemble. Keep away from tie-dye or cotton head scarves. This year the scarves trend leans more onto a feminine lady-like aesthetics of 60s’ rather than the free spirited 90s’!
Work wear meets athleisure
Work wear is seeing its biggest transition yet. Though for many years fads of mixing athleisure with formals came along and went not many took it too seriously to invest on. Now with keyboard dressing passing on outdoors people are looking to mix match their formals with casuals. Think baggy pants and blazers, sweaters/knits with pencil skirts, slippers and sandals with pants and shirt or even track pants with shirts. Adding accents of gold jewellery – think gold hoops, thin bracelets – to the ensemble gives it a touch of sophistication.
This season, tights can add a special touch with abstract patterns, sheer lace, and bold colors worthy of accentuating any outfit. Luxury fashion houses such as Gucci, Chanel, and Fendi have utilized the trend in their respective Fall/Winter 2020 collections.
From classic black stockings, logo mania, floral, checked, ripped, paired with shorts, skirts, dresses and even jackets experimenting on tights will do you good this year.
