With the panic of the pandemic, 2021 has been a quiet year for the fashion world. However, this has not stopped designers from coming up with trendier fashion statements to brighten up the dark days. Like the seasons of spring and summer, these trends are vibrant and colourful.

Here are ‘the’ fashion trends for spring and summer of 2021:

Black face masks

While the face mask is a must-have for protection, it can double as an added trendy piece while providing you with the necessary protection. Black face masks go with any outfit from a deep red jacket to a beige coloured blouse. Stick to softer materials like silk to breathe better. Face masks do come in different styles of their own now, so choose one that suits your face shape.

Head scarves

Bringing back the trends of the 50s and 60s, headscarves are a great way of protecting your hair from getting too frizzy by the wind and dust. You can either let the ends of the scarf hang at the back of your head or you can tie it in a lose knot under your chin. You can brighten up your plain clothes with floral prints or bold, colourful and intricate designs.

Pastel tones

A continuing trend throughout the year, pastel toned clothing work beautifully on any skin tone and are just great for the summer. Sorbet inspired pastel tones are widely popular now and would work great as a coat or a pant. You can find numerous pieces if you go through women’s fashion from Scanlan & Theodore.

White knee-high boots

Getting its inspiration from the 60’s once again, the white knee-high boots can really level up your outfit either by making you look sexy or effortless. Pair them up with a short-patterned dress or a mid-thigh skirt and you could truly stand out in a crowd.

Fringing on bags

Ideal for any season but most certainly popular at present is the fringing on bags. They can either be of a moderate length or go all the way to the floor. You can opt for darker shades like black and brown if you want to stick to the classics or if you’re bold enough you can look into more vibrant colours like red and green. If your outfit doesn’t seem to do the talking, then let your bag do it for you.

Oversized shoulder pad boyfriend jackets

Coming back to the trends from the 80’s this jacket can work both for a dressed down or a dressed-up look. These jackets sinch at your waist and make your legs look longer. They look best in neutral colours and look great with a pair of straight leg jeans or chic shorts.

While these are all great trends to follow for the right seasons, add in your own personal touch to the outfit so that it screams ‘trendy’ and ‘you’ at the same time. With these pieces in your wardrobe, you are bound to have loads of fun under the sun.
