All The Spring 2021 Fashion Trends That Are Worth Embracing
Straight from reality and VR runways
It’s been a year since maxing out credit cards in a gorgeously lit store has been replaced with a reflex action each morning. Oh, how we love pulling out a pair of sweatpants with an oversized tee that is as psychedelic and mismatched as it can get.
Come Spring 2021, designers heard our yearning for comfy silhouettes and gifted us exactly what we want. From Nicolas Ghesquiere’s edgy take on cargo pants at Louis Vuitton to Maison Valentino’s XXL shirts which are yours and only yours, make these trends your armour this season.
Move over from the comfort zones offered by humble sweatpants and leggings, and give in to the elevated version of the wardrobe staple—trousers. There’s no rule. Add straw belts, play with hues or opt for cargo pant detailing to upgrade your pair for making a statement this spring.
Reserved technically for a cold terrain, athletic ethos inspired windbreakers are making a major entrance on the spring-summer runways. As off-beat as the silhouette, the trend is fun, daring, and, might we say, unanticipated. Take cues from this multifarious number seen at Miu Miu or pick one for lounging at home like Anushka Sharma.
Move over from the closet of the man in your life and reach out unabashedly to the men’s section to buy your own. Easy-breezy, formal yet comfy, there’s only one formula—bigger the better. Wear as it is for an effortless, chill vibe or layer over a camisole like Hailey Bieber.
With 365 days of enveloping cabin fever, now is the time when indulging in a bit of levity will do no harm. After all, dressing up at home is the new norm. Take inspiration from this OTT floral number from La DoubleJ or dare to do print on print like Sonam Kapoor.
Victorian-era inspired puff sleeves make a comeback yet again. Opt for a pastoral, country girl vibe seen in the Brock Collection, or go for floral blended with the voluminous silhouette like Shanaya Kapoor.
Stop storing trench coats in a cabinet that you reach for when the temperature drops. This season, it’s all about incorporating the winter essential with a rather summery vibe. Think statement colours like turquoise seen at Louis Vuitton to up the ante. Our say: load up on one over your PJs for the perfect ‘running errands’ outfit.
Just in case you haven’t jumped onto the tie-dye bandwagon, a rage of sorts in quarantine, then let designers make a strong case now. These shibori-inspired patterns and eclectic colours are perfect for a weather that spells spring in the capital and, yes, oh-so bougie.
