This has been a quiet year for the fashion world, but that’s just one more reason to make sure that the next one is the year of loud fashion statements. There’s also a big retro theme with both the 70s and the 80s showing its influence on the upcoming trends.
There’s a big change when it comes to streetwear as well since it’s going out of style as a whole concept. There’s much less difference between fashion pieces and ordinary streetwear these days and that means that you could always go a bit bolder than you’re used to.
Oversized shoulder pads were a big part of the 80s fashion and it’s making a comeback this year. Overall speaking, oversized jackets, that allow you to play with the silhouette and with the shapes are a big must-have of the season.
A good thing about this look is how easily it can be mixed and matched with a lot of other styles. For instance, leather shorts with such a jacket creates a modern look and it isn’t overwhelmed by the jacket. Powder blue, charcoal, and neutrals are the colors of the day.
It’s common to take inspiration from styles of the past and in the 50s and early 60s head scarfs were big, and it’s about time for them to make a comeback. Silky design with floral motifs is the most retro choice out there and therefore they are better mixed with a more modern look.
For those who don’t think they can really pull a Grace Kelly look there are ways to mix things up and use scarfs in many other creative ways. Letting them dangle from a bag or wrapping them around your neck are good ways to go.
In 2021 yellow bags will be found both on the streets and on the runways now when there is less and less difference between the two. It works with both small and practical handbags and with the ones that are bigger and more out there in their design.
A good thing about yellow bags is how easy they are to match. With subtle and subdued colors, the bag will pop and become a centerpiece of your outfit, but it will also work quite well with similarly loud and noticeable color schemes.
Folk inspired coats
Big and loud coats are all the rage this season and some of the inspiration for making them memorable comes from folk art, from the world over. These designs are often complicated, intricate, and rather warm. That’s what makes them match so well with slick and monochromatic outfits, by contrasting one against the other.
This trend works for every body type and it can come in a variety of colors allowing you to mix and match with a lot of different looks. It’s also a chance to learn about folk art and therefore the culture of people from every corner of the globe.
White knee-high boots
Knee-high boots come straight from the 60s fashion and Nancy Sinatra in particular. They can look both effortless, and stylish meaning that you can mix and match them with a variety of outfits such as a mini dress skirt or a pair of leggings.
The boats are slick and sexy but they can also work with a professional outfit as long as there’s only one part of your outfit that’s chosen to attract attention. That part doesn’t have to be the boots themselves, but if it’s not, you’ll need to find something that will top them.
