Does it feel like you’ve been sporting the same fashion styles for a while now, and you aren’t exactly feeling modern, fresh, and trendy? Are you looking for a way to elevate your style in 2021 and let your inner fashion goddess out? If so, it’s always good to start with a few key essentials that are trending or proving to be must-haves for the upcoming season. You can then pair these items with existing wardrobe pieces to look modern and on-trend. So, let’s break down what the must-have pieces are for spring 2021 so you can get shopping.
The Return of the Shoulder Pads
For those who remember women’s fashion in the 80s you’ll know just how trendy shoulder pads were. The bigger the better when it came to this fashion feature and it appears that they are making a return for spring 2021. There’s nothing understated about this trend; you truly want to look for oversized and very noticeable shoulder pads.
One of the best ways to pull off this trend is with a boyfriend style blazer or jacket. This style of jacket is versatile in that it can be dressed up or down. You can also carry it into the summer by rolling up the sleeves.
Vintage Style Boots
Spring is also the perfect time to be sporting low and mid-calf boots that make a real statement. But which ones should you pick? The vintage style is proving to be very hot for 2021, with a chunky style mid to low heel. These Maison Margiela boots are a great example of the trending vintage style, and you have a good choice of colours.
Maison Margiela has been dubbed as a “radical conceptual designer” and that certainly rings true as you scroll through his designs at SSENSE. This site features some of the designer’s most trendy and modern boots, which means you’re sure to find a style that meshes with you and your wardrobe. From ultra-modern, to cutting-edge and more low-key offerings, SSENSE stocks all the must-have boots.
Pastel Tones Hit the Runway
In terms of the hot or trending colours for spring, it’s time to usher in the soft pastel tones such as mint green, lilac, pale yellow, and soft baby pink. The great thing about pastels is that they are more wearable than you may originally think. Different colours will suit different skin tones, so it’s a matter of experimenting and finding the colour that best suits you. You can also tone things down by anchoring pastels with a neutral like grey, navy, black, white, or beige.
Add a Pop of Floral to Your Wardrobe
Then there are florals which seem to be having a big moment, not just for spring, but also summer. Again, you can take this trend as far as you want by going full head-to-toe floral or choosing a more subdued approach.
So, if you’re looking to break free of your current style rut, each of these must-have pieces for Spring will do just that for you.
