2020 was certainly a strange year for fashion with work-from-home and quarantine removing our need for stylish clothing, and most of last year spent in sweatpants, pj’s and comfy slippers. But, 2021 presents itself as a time to experiment and enjoy fashion again. We take a look at 5 of the fashion trends we predict will dominate our 2021 wardrobes. Best thing about all items listed, is that they’re available via our store directory!
Skinny jeans are out and loose-fitting and baggy mom jeans are in. Baggy jeans is a prime example of the ways women are adapting to a more casual lifestyle. Slouchy, oversized denim is ideal for our socially distanced lives, and definitely a fashion trend that does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Seventies and eighties-inspired styles are expected to be a major fashion trend this year with high waisted, wide leg, straight leg, tapered styles, and flared jeans set to be high on the radar of fashionistas.
Florals are nothing new in fashion, but this year the bolder, the better. The perennial trend is getting a fresh makeover this year, punctuated by. unapologetically cheerful, loud, and bold prints. Pair floral items with solid colours, or if you feel like making a statement, wear florals from top to bottom.

Loungewear with a twist
Comfort dressing is a fashion trend that will be injected with a touch of luxe and glam. 2021 will be filled with comfortable but luxe pieces that are professional enough for the office, and comfy enough for the couch. The latest loungewear pieces combine fashion and function together to create a chic but totally wearable look.
Sustainable & upcycled fashion
The COVID-19 era has seen a surge of interest in sustainable fashion. Sustainability in fashion has now become a non-negotiable for many consumers. Brands are stepping up, offering more transparency, responsible working conditions, as well as more biodegradable, upcycled, and eco-friendly clothing than ever before. The second-hand and vintage clothing market is also anticipated to continue on its upward trajectory in 2021.
Last year’s colour palette, which was characterised by subdued, sensible shades, has been replaced by a sorbet inspired colour palette. Think lemon and orange sherbet, pistachio and lavender hues, and dusty pink shades.
