Fashion trends for 2021

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

  • Baggy jeans

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.

  • Bold florals

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.
