The latest 5 fashion trends of 2021 are out
Following the weirdness of 2020 fashion trends – with online business meetings and WFH, 2021 brings some refreshing changes you’ll love to hear about.
Previously “latest” fashion trends were gathered from runways and fashion magazines. Nowadays, it is the social media, blogs, youth culture and celebrities showcasing what’s cool and fresh in fashion.
Without further delay, these are the top 5 current fashion trends of 2021.
1. Hoodies Under Blazers
One of the most popular styles rocking the current fashion trends is the ever-so cozy hoodie – however, worn with a twist.
Wearing a blazer with a hoodie is no longer just another street style cut, but a mainstream look that transcends generations.
Wearing a quarantine staple-piece hoodie under a blazer adds an extra stylistic layer to your overall look.
Look for a slim, tapered hoody — preferably a darker, solid hue, without too much embroidery or graphics.
Pair it with a dark, solid blazer. Slacks or denim are up to you — either will work depending on the occasion.
2. Women’s Oversized Bomber Jackets
Bomber jackets should always rest loosely on your hip – unless you’ve opted for a slightly cropped style.
The clingy cuffs shouldn’t go past or above your wrists, no matter the fit.
The cuffs should be relatively tight, so if it hangs over your hand loosely, try a smaller size.
3. Cropped Cardigans

Nothing defines the contemporary fashion trends quite like a cropped cardigan.
A vintage-inspired trend kicked off by high brands like Alessandra Rich and LoveShackFancy, quickly copied by Zara and Forever 21.
Regardless, if putting together a cute outfit seems like too much to handle right now, a skinny knit with your favorite jeans is the perfect answer.
Styles range from basic button-ups to embroidered, embellished, or printed knits, so there’s pretty much something for everyone.
4. Casual Trench

You can’t beat a classic trench coat, the ultimate between-seasons outerwear.
Not a fashion season has passed without the trench putting in an appearance, and the most recent shows were no exception.
The coat of choice for iconic women for decades, the casual trench is brought back to life by Meghan Markle’s recent royal visits.
Great with a cashmere roll neck and Prada tractor-tread boots to create that stylish and yet military-inspired outerwear look.
5. Boiler Suits

This one-and-done hero piece has cropped up everywhere this year, from the runway to your favorite affordable stores.
It’s easy, it’s cool, and it takes the stress out of picking pants and a shirt – because we all have enough to think about right now.
Traditionally made from heavy canvas or denim, the one-zip wonder was one of many game-changing inventions to come out of the Industrial Revolution.
With boiler suits, comfort and practicality are both high on the list.
