Plan your perfect wardrobe for this summer with our observations on the fashion trends for this year.
How are we doing?
Summer is here, and for most of us, it has brought freedom after being cooped up for over a year due to the pandemic. With vaccinations and reopening, the chance of leaving home increases. All we can discuss is our summer plans: beach trips, seeing friends and going outside for drinks or dinners.
Trends for 2021
Your summer wardrobe requires greater attention than other seasons as you can not layer like you can during other times of the year. Fashion and style sites are talking about the latest trends. Learning to strike a balance between what is relevant and trendy with what is wearable is important in being fashionable.
Summertime fashion always features light colors over dark. The same is true for this year with some variations. Lighter colors keep you cooler and have a better summer vibe. Pairing a rainbow plaid or floral bottom with a pulley-style cardigan is the new favorite trend. Pairing summer brights like coral, blue, or yellow with neutrals is also popular and can create a fresh summer look.
Your summer wardrobe also needs to include some clothes off an all-neutral palette. Style a beige tank with a skirt or high-waisted shorts of the same color scheme and a matching light sweater or tailored longline blazer. White linen trousers are a piece you will reach for again and again. They can easily transit from day to night with a quick change of accessories.
Trendy summer dresses, whether mini, midi, or maxi, are comfortable, cooling, endlessly stylish, and easy to wear. Dresses featured this year are made from a variety of fabrics (airy, crocheted, mood-boosting colors, and floral prints). These dresses also have a variety of silhouettes with different necklines and sleeves (square neckline, sleeveless, puffed sleeve, three-quarter, or straps). Off-the-shoulder dresses and tops are a must-have.
A major comeback this year is mini dresses. There are a variety of silhouettes, fabrics, and floral prints. Their shortened hemline can help to show off the season’s most fashionable footwear.
The best way to bare your flesh without revealing too much is a dress with sophisticated strapwork. Slinky front straps, drawstrings, and intricate back detailing are the things to look for in a summer dress. Tiered dresses of bright colors are perfect for both lunch dates and as an easy coverup following a dip in the ocean.
Crop Tops and Tees
A slight spaghetti strap version or bandeau style crop top or a midriff-baring, carefree bralette are the things for this summer. They pair well with skirts, shorts (high-waisted), lightweight cardigans, and blazers. Statement puffy sleeves and embellishment can give them an evening cocktail vibe. Crop tops can be worn in different ways, and you can create your own style out of this trend.
T-shirts represent creativity and help to freely and safely express yourself. You can look at for T-shirts. This year there is an abundance of bright and vibrant colors (blues, magentas, mint greens, and more). Book designs, strong statements, multicolored words, tarot cards, emojis, hand-drawn designs, doodle artwork, and repeating text are the top trends in T-shirt prints for this year.
Trousers and shorts
The pandemic made us concentrate on the top half of our bodies. Now is the time to get dressed from head to toe. This summer, trendy trousers come in the form of whimsical prints, details on the bottom of the leg, fringe and playful trims, neon and vibrant colors, and stand-out shapes.
Shorts can create casual, festive, formal, off-duty, athletic, and office-friendly looks. However, you have to balance your outfit. For example, patterned shorts go well with classic one color or matching print tops, or wear dark ones with monochrome or colorful tops. You can also try monochrome print shorts with a semi-sheer white blouse. You will see florals, brightly patterned, white, green, red, denim with bottom details, sporty, lace, and animal printed options for shorts in the market.
This season, try to step out in a bright red shorts suit with a bralette or tiny denim cutoffs with a basic white T-shirt as the trend. Replace athletic shorts that are tight and not good at absorbing moisture with bike shorts.
Shine and Design Details
Shiny garments, from motorcycle jackets to maxi dresses, are making the case for everyday wear this summer. Metallic tops, skirts, blouses, or shorts all can be a part of your daily wear when mixed and matched correctly. Pants or shorts with sequins can be styled with bodysuits, tank tops, or tees for a night out or daytime.
You may be wearing only one layer in the summer, so make it as interesting as possible. You may be wearing a blue top with white pants or shorts, but an interesting drape or asymmetrical detail or pattern can make you look polished, modern, and cool.
Light, transparency, and fluid-like cloth are trendy this summer. Fabrics with rough surfaces (created with yarn or pattern), smooth lightweight knit, bold patterns with bright colors and new-look denim (designed to create an optical illusion) are also trendy.
Printed pants should be a part of your wardrobe this year. Crocheted tops and dresses came in bright colors and bold patterns and are worth investing in. Sheer dresses and tops are on most online shops and covers of magazines and are definitely trendy for summer 2021.
You will find a lot of blogs talking about the latest fashion trends for women, what is hot, and what is no longer in style. Here, the focus is on the clothing you will need to fit into the current fashion based on how you mix and match them for wearing in the morning, noon, or night. By following this advice and adding a pair of espadrilles, leather sandals, or white running sneakers, big sunglasses, and an oversized tote, you will be good to go.
