the 7 best fashion trends of spring 2021

April 2021

As a yearly ritual, Spring is arriving with the new fashion trends we are all excited to wear! After a long and grey winter, we just fancy light fabric and bright colors. In this post, let’s recap the 7 best fashion trends of Spring 2021 and my favorite looks inspired by the best designer’s runways. Which one will be your favorite?

The stripes

The sailor’s inspired mariniere is one of the best fashion trends of the season and beyond! Wear the stripes navy and white for a timeless and casual classic style (seen on Ralph Lauren and Mc Queen runways).

In a more trendy way, the Spring-Summer 2021’s stripe is also bright and funky – as seen at Dior, Gabriela Hearst, Dries Van Noten, and Louis Vuitton’s runways. The total look of course.

Netting

Ferragamo, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Burberry, Fendi, Hermes, Valentino, Longchamp, and many other brands presented fishnet-styled pieces during their Spring-summer runways. Girls, this season, netting is a real thing.

It’s now or never! You can dig out your grandma’s vintage 70’s macrame dress from your wardrobe or invest in new cool pieces.The only no-go will be the resille tights (still not back to fashion, sorry).

Still not ready for such a bold look? Try a net dress on top of your swimsuit at the beach! Boho and trendy without the risk of being too sexy.

Pink

The color of Spring 2021! We saw so many cool and bright colors on the Spring-Summer 2021 runways – orange, yellow, blue – but pink is definitely the most popular and flattering one.

From baby pink to dark fuchsia, every shade of pink is the star of the season, if possible in total look for maximum impact.

Cut outs

From sweater to dresses, it will be difficult to find a piece without a scissor cut this season! Designers created lots of new shapes and cuts, adding sophistication through simplicity.

The bralette

Less is more and bras are the new tops! The bralette is a key item of the fashion style 2021. It was present in the vast majority of runways – Dior, Boss, Etro, Isabel Marant, Givenchy (actually almost everyone else as well!)

Bralette Sandro

Thin like a triangle bra or much wider, the bralette is a must-have of the season.

How to wear? First, cover your belly button with a high-waist chic skirt, shorts or trousers. Cover then a part of the bralette with an oversized blazer or cardigan. Trendy guaranteed!

The wide leg trousers

Oversized clothes were already a thing in 2020, inspired by the 1970’s looks. This season, trousers have to be wide, whatever the style – classic, denim, or casual.

Flattering and comfortable, choose a neutral color for a chic look. Those of you who want to try something edgy and bold will go for bright or unusual colors.

The monochrome look

Last seasons we saw lots of total looks white, beige, black,… Spring-summer 2021 will be a season in black and white! But don’t get me wrong, nothing vintage about it, quite the contrary.

Balmain tank top – MyTheresa

Easy to style, the monochrome look is a real fashion statement. Chanel, Saint Laurent, Balmain and even the colourful Dolce & Gabbana launched the trend with incredible silhouettes.
