The runways are always at least one season ahead of us, which gives us a sneak peek at the fashion trends to come. Start updating your wardrobe with the styles of the new year.
His Shirt for Her
Thank goodness boyfriend shirts never go out of style – and that’s still the case as we move into 2021. These are comfortable, easy to care for, and can pair with almost anything. This year, the boyfriend shirts are playing with proportions and size. In other words, the bigger the shirt, the better. Wear it cinched with a belt as a tunic or tie it at the waist to draw attention to a fabulous pair of skinny jeans.
Flared Jeans – for Men
Style Caster says of this trend, “Think That 70’s Show meets grunge.” This year, men’s jean trends are keeping things loose, casual, and nostalgic. And if you want to make it a little more formal, go for black denim.
This unisex garment is enjoying a comeback with all kinds of quirky iterations. You can stick to the basic quilted vest for a cool weather cover-up, or go for something more structured and visually daring, like a utility vest.
No matter where you look, you’ll find red in the fashion trends for 2021. Try a bold red summer dress (which can be worn with leggings and a cardigan in colder weather) or a sophisticated red velvet sports coat.
The runways saw a lot of blouses with puffy sleeves, or as they’re called in the business, mutton or balloon sleeves. You’ll also see a lot of oversized blazers with shoulder pads in women’s fashion, an updated take on a beloved ’80s trend.
If Vogue says ties are making a comeback, then we can believe it! This year will find it evolving into a statement piece by employing bold solid colors, creative patterns, and unique images.
Mono Palettes & Patterns
The runways saw lots of looks that weren’t just monochromatic, but also in patterns or textures that carried from one garment to another. For instance, a suit all in shades of yellow, a shirt and slacks in a matching plaid pattern, or an outfit that’s all denim from neck to ankle.
