In recent weeks, oversized and commanding blazers, bold blue bags, and sleek face masks dominated Fashion Weeks. You can find serious style inspiration with the top fashion trends spotted at SS21 Fashion Weeks from Paris to Milan. Here is a list of trends in 2021 that went viral.

With an oversized boyfriend blazer inspired by the 1980s, you can create a long silhouette and experiment with shapes. For an ultra-modern look, pair this look with a pair of straight-leg trousers or leather shorts – colours that suit this trend include powder blue, charcoal, and neutrals. You can dress it up or down for an effortlessly chic look.

Taking inspiration from the 1950s and 1960s, this sleek fashion trend makes a big comeback. Headscarves protect your hair and add a finishing touch to your outfit without being overpowering. Choose a silky design with floral motifs or intricate patterns, or keep it simple with bold colours and block letters.

Sorbet Pastel Tones

Pastel tones are another trend that has remained popular this year. These sorbet-inspired colours are ideal for summer and complement a wide range of skin tones. Choose between a boiler suit in cool mint green and an oversized trench coat in soft lavender – or try them both on simultaneously.

Neutral Co-Ord Sets

This trend has been on our radar for quite some time, and it’s easy to see why. Neutrals are a total industry classic right now, so why not combine all soft tones? You can wear this look in various ways, from a grey knot dress with a matching sweater to a crop top with slouchy sweatpants and a cardigan.

Tracksuit with Structured Coats

Models and fashion aficionados embrace this trend from the runways to Instagram feeds. When it’s freezing outdoors, and you want to keep warm, snug, and elegant, wearing a tracksuit with a structured coat is the best option. Choose colours that complement each other or are similar in tone when styling this unique combination.

Androgynous Style

Since the 1930s, androgyny has been a popular trend in the fashion world. This look makes a significant comeback from oversized suits to mixing and matching shirts and blazers. Straight-leg jeans with unisex t-shirts, bomber jackets and turtlenecks, and 80s-inspired tailoring are all hot this year. To make a true statement, work them in neutral colours and add a splash of colour like red or green.

Wide Leg Jeans

Goodbye, skinny-leg jeans, but it’s wide-leg jeans’ time to shine. It’s all about borrowing influence from the early 2000s this season, and what better way to commemorate this era in fashion than with one of its most prevalent trends? These pants stretch your legs and give off a comfortable 70s vibe by sitting high on the waist and flaring out past the knees.

Pastel Colour Bucket Hats

The bucket hat is another trend that has stayed with us, but this year, we’re giving it a retro makeover. Pastel colours like lavender, lemon, and baby pink are fun to experiment with, and they look incredibly charming when mixed with complementary colours.

Faux Leather

Faux leather items keep getting trendier day by day. From skirts to jackets, the trend is back. Paired it with darker colour clothes for chic

and bold look.
