As we all are passing a pandemic situation right now, we can say that it affects our fashion industry too like others. A lot of things have been changed. Some fashion shows were stopped for this pandemic situation. But now we are coping up with this situation. Now the virtual runway shows viewed from our laptop screens give us a taste of the exciting trends on the horizon for 2021. I can say undoubtedly if there was ever a time for a dose of fun, it’s 2021. Neutrals have dominated fashion for the past few seasons, we’re also seeing that reflected in the fashion on the runways. The biggest color trends of 2021 are giving people a sense of hope, optimism, and the refreshment that many are looking for. Rather than a standout hue, we’re seeing saturated shades in a rainbow of colors at Prada.
The Pantone Color Institute is choosing bright and soothing colors that takes inspiration from natural elements. This year bright and eye-catching hues are their first choice. The Bright Yellow color refers to evoke hope and optimism after the tumultuous year. The color gives the message of unity, stability and hope. The Deep Teal color is inspired by the calm of the ocean. The Off-White is also steeped in hope and optimism. Its inspiration comes from the pandemic’s craze of baking at home. Fortuna Gold is also their pick ones as it represents the chance happenings and happy coincidences found in life’s moments. They think rich Marigold color will evoke a cozy and friendly vibe. The Powdery Blue is another color that they expect to be big for its calming nature. The Deep Navy color is said to be solid and very intensive and can be used as a great background color. This year the Burnt Red-Orange color is said to have a season less appeal. The French Blue shade will be popular with people who favor the color and are looking for a new shade. The Pastel Green color goes along with the trend of gardening, hiking and other outdoor activities that have become more popular during the pandemic. The Pink-Orang is said to evoke a sense of familiarity and comfort, especially because Coral was a recent Pantone Color of the year. Also, Mint is a refreshing and cleansing color. This year Amethyst Orchid will be popular as far as the prediction. As the Fuchsia color has both warm and cool properties it will be one of the trendy colors. Same goes for Desert Mist. So, we can say that this year will be a colorful and lively year. Another trend that is dominating this year has been Pastel colors. Choose from a boiler suit in cool mint green or an oversized trench coat in soft lavender better yet, try them simultaneously. Among 2021 fashion trends, anyone can pick Bubblegum Pink without any hesitation.
Now, let’s have a look on what’s in for 2021. There’s a lot to adopt and skip. The designers ask to adopt sheer, transparent pieces this spring. As our “lockdown life” has been less exciting it’s time for lifting up our mood by wearing color and patterns. Screen-prints can make you feel more artistic. If you are a fan of basics, so Basic Maxis will be one of your cheerleaders. This long line, flattering dresses are the best for comfy. We’ve already seen a glimpse of Warp Skirts in 2020, and in 2021 this trend will comeback with the updated hemline length. Here, oversized Jackets and Blazers with a pair of straight-leg trousers or leather shorts for an ultra-modern style that suit this trend are powder blue, charcoal, and neutrals. Now, Puffed Sleeves are one of those things which are loved by all. In 2021, everyone is adopting Straight Denim Styles and more Relaxed Fitted Jeans and skipping hot pants. Some likes Low-Rise Pants as it is so comfortable where some loves Baggy Jeans. It can be little basic, but styling them with different textures and tighter fitting tops will be so cool. Therefore, go all out this season with these beautiful and tangled Folk Inspired Coats. When the temperature starts to drop, you can add some layers of delicate embroidery and lace to keep your outfit hot. The style looks fantastic on every body type. We can try a light brown suit or coat with a mustard turtleneck for the cold season or a sleek tan T-shirt and camel pair of flare pants. This subtle yet flattering combination is the hottest style we can say to try this season. The theme is kept it neutral with Yellow and Camel color styling. Wear White Knee High Boots with a patterned mini dress or skirt, a roll neck, or a funky pair of leggings. It is great for a slouchy style for an effortless feel or keep it sleek and tight for a sexy touch. With that classic and comfortable Ballet Flats are back, and Block Heels gives us extra oomph and height.
In this time, Yellow Bags have taken over the runways and the streets. You can choose a small clutch to spice up an outfit or find a mustard tote for your daily needs. Also, an Amber structured handbag with an all-white get-up, or a sleek canary baguette for a night out. At that time, one of the biggest looks we have seen is the Fringing on the bangs. Choose from a leather fringe or shearling- you can rock any season. For a classic look, choose dark hues. But if you want to be unique, take a dip into bold shades. This year 50s and 60s sleek fashion trend is coming back and Head Scarfs is one of them. We can choose from a silky design with floral motif or intricate patterns, or keep it simple with bold colors. This Covid situation gives us another fashion trend and that is Black Face Masks. These masks match almost any outfit. The beauty behind this face-covering is the limitless styling opportunities that comes along it. If you want to stand out among others, add Pop Blue Accessories in your closet. The amaze behind this trend is the unlimited number of options you can try throughout the season. This bright hue will stand out amongst the deeper shades. Add a pop of blue to your monochromatic outfit to update your go-to outfits and rock your key pieces.
This is all about 2021 trends, which offered us whimsical escapes into future inspired by designer lockdown daydreams for spring 2021 last Fashion Week. This year is going to be a colorful and hopeful year by our outfits and accessories.
