While summer trends change, there is one thing that trends for this season have in common: comfort. Keeping cool and comfortable in the warmer months is top of the agenda, which is why your summer wardrobe is likely filled with loose-fitting clothing made from soft, light materials.
And summer 2021 is no different. While there are top trends to look out for, all of these are about staying cool in the heat. As we get used to being out and socializing again, it’s time to invest in some essential pieces to keep us looking stylish right through to autumn. Check out this list of Essential Summer Clothing to Keep You in Style!
Essential Summer Clothing to Keep You in Style!
In the late 90s and early 00s, crop tops were everywhere. They’ve been slowly building in popularity in recent years and 2021 is the summer when this iconic fashion trend is set to shine.
For a 20s update, the capped sleeves of the earlier styles are gone and in their place are slinky bralettes and spaghetti straps. In a nod to the tailoring trend seen last winter, round off the look with a light blazer – as seen at Hermès.
Classic cropped trousers
Cropped trousers have been a staple of summer wardrobes for years, and it’s easy to see why. Combining comfort with style, they are the ideal choice for a day at the beach or walk in the park. Better still, they can be dressed up with heels and an elegant top.
If you’re packing for a staycation, be sure to pop a pair in your case. They’ll come in handy, wherever your headed.
When it comes to sleeves, the bigger, the better this season. Like the cropped trousers, these can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood.
If you’re out for drinks, take your cue from Isabel Marant and team your puff-sleeve top with a pair of statement trousers. Should you be planning a daytime look, opt for a split skirt, as seen at Alberta Ferreti.
You might have worn sheer tops and dresses in the 00s, but this style trend has received a makeover for 2021, bringing it straight into the 20s. Channel 70s beach vibes by layering a sheer maxi dress over your swimsuit, as seen at Dior. Or you could be inspired by the catwalks at Fendi and wear a sheer slip dress paired with a blazer. This is a bold, fun trend that is both stylish and sure to keep you cool on hot days.
