Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends Predictions (that you can actually wear!)

Spring/Summer 2021 Fashion Trends Predictions (that you can actually wear!)

I think we can all agree that 2020 was one hell of an unexpected year. While we were looking forward to travel plans, social events and wearing all the cute outfits, Covid 19 had other plans. Pandemic anyone? Loungewear reigned supreme in 2020 as many around the globe were forced to spend the majority of the year indoors. This year we’re hopeful, excited and ready to wear our favourite Spring/Summer 2021 fashion trends (socially distanced and matching masks on of course, as applicable!)

From the season’s hottest colour to bustier silhouettes, these are the biggest fashion trends I predict will dominate Spring/Summer 2021!

1.) Pink

Bubblegum pink to be exact. Although I have a particular penchant for hot pink myself. This year we’re serving all the Barbie vibes and revelling in our femininity, loudly and proudly!

How to wear it?

If you’re feeling bold, try colour blocking with green, blue or orange, which are some of my favourite complementary colours for pink. If you’re not quite there yet, try adding pops of pink to your outfit through your shoes, bags or accessories.

2.) Chunky Gold Chains

This year we’re all about rich auntie vibes. Chunky chains dominated 2020 and this statement style is expected to thrive throughout 2021 as well. The bolder, the bigger, the better!

How to wear it?

Pair your chunky gold necklace with your favourite button down, a pair of straight leg jeans and some cute heels for a versatile look that can work for any occasion! Chunky gold chain bracelets, footchains or belts can also provide an added element of style to any outfit! Check out my Instagram @thebusinessofchic to see all the great ways I wear this trend!

3.) Oversized Button Down Shirts

Volume is in and we’re ditching the ‘I borrowed my BF/Dad’s shirt’ style narrative in 2021! Instead, we’re embracing the, ‘Yes I intentionally bought my shirt 3 sizes too big and I am owning this look’ look this year! This is definitely one of my fave Spring/Summer 2021 fashion trends!

How to Wear it?

Style your oversized shirt as a dress with a pair of cute chunky heels or sneakers depending on your style preference. If you prefer to add some shape, wear it with something tight on the bottom like a pair of straight leg jeans or a mini skirt or you can always add a belt to cinch that waist!

4.) Corsets

This controversial victorian trend is making a huge comeback once again. If you’re a fan, like me, of the underwear as outwear trend then corsets are definitely for you. Expect more illusion inspired corsets this year made from flexible and breathable fabrics. We’re snatching those waists all 2021 ladies! I know the Bridgerton fans will love this one!

How to wear it?

Contrast the sleek, sexiness of your corset with a pair of jeans for a casual slay or swap in a loose pair of wide leg trousers for an elevated glam look.

5.) Bralettes

We’re baring it all in 2021…literally…with this midriff flaunting trend. This ‘barely there’ Spring/Summer 2021 fashion trend might be a bit more polarising, especially for us over the age of 30. The good news is, the bralette is a versatile piece that can be worn in many different ways based on your comfort levels and we are here for it!

How to Wear it?

Balance out the silhouette, by pairing your bralette with something loose, flowy and long on the bottom like wideleg trousers or a fun midi/maxi skirt. If you’re not here for baring your midriff, another great way to wear this trend is over/under an oversized shirt, dress or blazer for the ultimate cool girl vibes.

6.) Wide leg trousers

I’m definitely a pants girl and this chic and polished Spring/Summer 2021 fashion trend has definitely taken over my wardrobe. I still love a good cigarette, skinny or peg leg trouser moment, but nothing beats the comfort and effortless style of a wide leg trouser.

How to wear it?

Experiment with this trend in a pop of colour or funky prints like zebra print or bold florals. Not your vibe? Well you can never go wrong with classic neutrals. Every wardrobe needs a great pair of white/black wide leg trousers!

The great thing about fashion is you never know what to expect. See which trends have stood the test of time and which ones were one hit wonders:
