Fashion Trends to Look Out for in 2021

The new year is a time of new beginnings. It’s a time to embrace change, hopefully for the better. And every fashionista knows, it’s time to update our wardrobes to reflect the latest trends.

Just like every coming year, 2021 promises a variety of updated looks, and as that special midnight hour draws nigh, we will want to run out and buy the latest to stay one step ahead of the coming trends. With that in mind, here are some styles you will want to add to your wardrobe.


Patchwork pieces provide a shabby chic look with unique color combinations that take it to the next level. Patchwork accessories can be added for a splash of warmth and color or you can do an all over patchwork look with a dress or suit composed completely of a variety of materials and prints.

This patchwork scarf gives the outfit the perfect amount of color and charm.


While knit sweaters and cardigans will always be in style, 2021 will be showing unlikely knits such as fully knit suits and dresses. These will provide soft and glamorous looks that will show knits in an entirely new light.

At first glance, this jacket may look like any other moto jacket, but its knit material gives it a soft texture that takes it to the next level.


Florals have been making a comeback in the few past years and it looks like they are here to stay. This classic and utterly feminine look can be worn in casual and formal settings, but a long flowy dress will truly bring out the romantic style.

This jumpsuit has a long and flowy look that is terrific for capitalizing on the romantic and feminine floral vibe.

Bold Shoulders

The broad shoulder/shoulder pad look made a comeback from the 80’s a few years ago. As the years progress, it seems designers want to outdo each other with shoulders that are bigger and bolder than ever.

This Caterina satin olive top has shoulders that are both puffy and large making for a look that is soft and spacey at the same time.


We know what you’re thinking…you don’t have to tell me jeans are in style. It’s true that jeans have always been a fashion staple, but in 2021 they are returning to the runway being paired with elegant looks that elevate them to high fashion. While skinny styles are still in, straight leg and wide legged looks are favorites for the new year.

The higher waist, straight legged jeans are the perfect thing to pair with an elegant ruffled blouse.

Bold Prints

2021 is letting it all hang out with bold prints that are worth a second glance. You can opt for one bold piece such as a dress or suit, or combine bold prints together to make for looks that are fun, whimsical and enticing all at the same time.

This bold print dress is sure to make a splash wherever you go.

Beach Inspired Looks

As evidenced by the return of florals, there is no doubt that romantic looks are back. And what’s more romantic than a day at the beach? You can capture the beachy spirit by wearing a dress that makes you look like a mermaid or take a fun approach by wearing accessories and t-shirts that embrace the beach theme.

This seashell hat is a fun way to embrace the beach. It works well with casual looks and can also be a romantic addition to a long, flowing sundress.


Athleisurewear is taking the world by storm and 2021 shows no signs of it slowing down. However, like jeans, we can expect it to take a high fashion turn. Expect to see shiny lingerie tops paired with track pants and long glamorous sweaters matched with leggings.

Don’t’ be surprised to find items like these tie-ankle super soft pants paired with a shiny Cammie.

2021 is sure to have us in for a share of fashion twists and turns. Which of these looks will you be embracing in the new year?
