Looking at how excited we were all for 2020 no one had expected that we would all be forced to wear sweaters for almost 3 months that was undeniably awful but that seems to be all over now as we usher in 2020. We’ll slowly ease back into our old, fashion-forward ways and when it comes to trends, we’re aiming for items that are practical, statement-making, and, preferably, loose. Our picks for the best fashion trends to invest in for 2021 combine the best of both worlds, but at the same time, are classic and seasonless. So, even if you don’t get around to shopping our suggestions before the end of January, you’ll have the rest of the year to try them out.
What is the ultimate fashion trend worth investing in for 2021?
- Loungewear. The fast-fashion brands are all over it, but the quality and cut do not suffice. Invest in a few pieces that won’t bobble and are cut well. Buy your tops in one to two sizes too big. The more oversized, the better for making loungewear look as lux as possible.
- With the climate of sartorial culture shifting to fit the lives of the fashionable set who now find themselves Zooming and working from the comfort of their homes, perhaps the most notable trends of this season is an ode to relaxed sensibilities that encapsulate comfort and ease. However, don’t think only loungewear, but rather more effortless and elevated pieces centred on sumptuous fabrications and a redefined focus on circular fashion. A great fitted yet slightly relaxed suit is a must-have in every wardrobe. However, there has to be a balance. Opt for a fitted shirt, paired with flared trousers, and throw an oversized blazer over the shoulder! The trends we’ve seen are a reflection of the times we are living in, and whilst beautifully muted tones of creams and greys.
- A sweater vest. It’s a cool and understated piece that can easily work into your wardrobe. I would suggest styling it over a classic white tee and rolling up the sleeves just a bit.
- A wide-leg trouser. I think we’ve all gotten so accustomed to wearing looser clothes since the pandemic started, and this is a good opportunity to throw something on that will feel more put together while not throwing us out of our comfort zone too much. I think the key to making these work is to not overthink it, It can really become quite a staple in your wardrobe, so as the season changes build a few choices looks: a great cashmere knit with a blazer or without, a simple T-shirt or vest, or a great tailored shirt.
