The last year has completely changed what our everyday life looks like, and it has certainly changed the way we dress most of the time. But has it changed the way we dress forever? With the seasons starting to change and the hopeful announcement of possibly coming out of lockdown little by little in the next few months, we are all getting our spring/summer looks ready. And even though loungewear has dominated the work from home looks for the last year, many of us are itching to switch up our comfy looks for something a bit different. This year’s spring/summer trends are filled with throwbacks, prints and colours of joy that will brighten up the months to come. We have put together a roundup of our favourite trends for this season and how to easily incorporate them into your daily looks.
The voluminous puff sleeves are back and they are bigger than ever. From puffy balloon sleeve blouses to 80’s silhouette blazers, the bigger the style the better. These are a really easy way to elevate any outfit, from a simple jeans and a top combination to a full suit look with ultimate volume. This is a trend that you can find anywhere and from any brand at the moment, so you won’t have to go far to add it to your wardrobe. Try a summer blouse from Munthe or the denim blazer from GANNI that will take you to the warmer months in style.
After the last few darker months, we are happy to see that bright colours are coming back more vivid than ever this spring. From neon monochrome looks to fun prints, this is a trend that will make anyone happy. Opt for a neon jumper to warm up your early spring looks and switch it up for a colourful dress when the weather gets warmer. Feel your best and brightest in these trendy colours and prints all summer long.
Believe it or not, loungewear is still going strong after a full year of living in our basics. This year’s spring/summer season will still see those luxe loungewear looks all around, especially in bright colours to match the vibrant colours of the season. Invest in a fun pastel coloured sweatshirt to keep you comfortable in style or opt for a co-ord set when you are looking for that full sweat suit look for running your daily errands or maybe to even eventually travel in when we get to finally go on those holidays we have been dreaming of for months.
Denim on Denim
Denim is the one thing that never truly goes out of style. This season we are seeing some more throwbacks with full denim looks inspired by the 80’s. Whether or not you’re ready to wear the full denim look or want to just keep things simple with your favourite pair of jeans, this is one of the easiest trends to wear since we most likely already have this in our closet. And if you haven’t already, make sure to invest in a great pair of jeans that you can keep wearing year after year.
Wide Leg Trousers
As much as we love skinny jeans and slim fitting trousers, the wide leg is taking over even more this season. From wide leg tailored trousers to those high waisted wide leg jeans, they are everywhere this spring. The high waisted wide leg shape is a great way to elevate your casual outfits and elongate your legs. Tuck any top or knit into the trousers and finish the look with some trainers or an ankle boot for extra height.
Monochrome has truly never gone out of style, but this season we are seeing a lot of black and white looks. The great thing about this trend is that it is the easiest one to pull out of your wardrobe and mix and match styles. Go for an all black or white look for full monochrome or mix a crisp white top with classic black bottoms for a timelessly chic look. This trend frees up space to let your accessories shine if you add a pop of colour in your choice of footwear, bag or even jewellery.
Sheer for Summer
The lightweight, sheer fabrics are back for the summer and they are a great way to add a more delicate and feminine style to your looks. A sheer printed top tucked into some high waisted jeans or a full floral lightweight dress is the perfect summer outfit for any occasion. If you want the ultimate off duty look, you can even layer a sheer dress over some straight fit jeans. Add a slip or a top underneath for extra coverage.
