It may still be winter (and lockdown) but I’m very much looking forward to ditching my loungewear in favour of some pretty new seasonal pieces and ticking all those spring/summer trends. Although almost entirely digital, the shows from New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks still provided plenty of new trends to sink our teeth in for spring summer 2021. Trust me, it’s going to be a good season.
Spring/summer fashion trends 2021: Feel-good dresses
Weirdly foreshadowing our loungewear/lockdown fatigue, designers such as Molly Goddard, Rodarte, Christopher John Rogers, Simone Rocha and Jacquemus have served up some dreamy, extravagant summer dresses that scream escapism. Honestly, even the dress-averse won’t be able to stop that smile spreading on their faces.
Think over-the-top tulle ballgowns, acid-hued florals, ribbon detailing, feel-good colours and puff sleeves galore.
Spring/summer fashion trends 2021: New shirting
Thought the humble white shirt couldn’t be more boring? Think again. This season, the shirt gets a high fashion makeover, if the new collections are to be believed. At Valentino, it was thigh-length and pink, at Jacquemus, cropped and asymmetrical, and at The Row they were oversized to the max. Whatever your mood, there’s a shirt for it.
