Fashion trends 2021: These are the 10 most important (and most wearable!) Trends in spring and summer

1. Trend spring / summer 2021: XL fashion

Wide boyfriend shirts, extremely loose-fitting suits and blazers, baggy jeans and XL chinos: if we had to choose one of the trends that will shape the style of the spring / summer 2021 season, it would definitely be relaxed oversized fashion. Wide fit fashion was featured in every major collection throughout the Fashion Week season. No wonder - after all, comfort is the fashion credo of the hour in times of home office and quarantine.

2. Trend spring / summer 2021: Loungewear 2.0

Loungewear perfectly reflects the current zeitgeist. Already a big topic in 2020, the hype will peak in the coming season. However, the fashion that was shown in New York, London, Milan and Paris has little to do with baggy jogging pants and childlike pajamas. Rather, labels such as Boss, Max Mara or Giorgio Armani with elegant pajama and sweatsuit looks have proven that the boundaries between job, leisure and bedroom are now fluid.

Seen at: Giorgio Armani, Max Mara, Koperni, Cynthia Rowley, Rodarte, Roksanda, Eckhaus Latta, Adeam, Thakoon, Tom Ford, Theory, Balenciaga, Collina Strada, Rag & Bone, Y / Project, Vivienne Westwood, Naeem Khan, Boss, Zero + Maria Cornejo

3. Trend spring / summer 2021: mix of patterns

Batik, patchwork, floral patterns: if you can't do anything with plain-colored fashion and subtle monochrome looks, you will have real joy in summer: bright colors, prints and pattern mix styles in all possible variations were on the catwalks from New York to Paris for a good mood - and a real frenzy of colors.

4. Trend spring / summer 2021: puff sleeves and power shoulders

Voluminous statement sleeves in the form of balloon and puff sleeves were already among the biggest trends in fashion in summer 2020 - and will remain with us in 2021. Some designers even went a step further and accentuated the tops, coats and dresses of their new collections with dramatically pointed shoulder pads.

5. Trend spring / summer 2021: cut-outs and strings

For all those who, despite or precisely because of the current "hang loose" fashion, have the need to show more skin, summer fashion 2021 naturally also has something to offer: Refined cut-out details on tops and dresses ensure well-dosed Insights. Are you not enough? Then it is best to use skirts and pants with string details. They look like the underwear is peeking out. We just say: Hello, 2000s!

6. Trend spring / summer 2021: bralettes

And another "naked" topic: Bra tops are the new crop tops - or to put it another way: Sports bras and bralettes will be going out in 2021. The style is suitable for (home) office in combination with blazers and high-waisted trousers or skirts. Or layered over tops and shirts.

7. Trend spring / summer 2021: mesh fabrics

As just read, the layering look creates exciting effects and more depth even in summer. For us, the preferred layering piece in spring / summer 2021 is definitely a piece made of mesh. In the Burberry collection, fishnet shirts were worn over blouses, at David Koma you could see silver-colored fishnet skirts styled with panties and in the Fendi collection a knitted coat with a fishnet look was one of the highlights.

9. Trend spring / summer 2021: trench coats reloaded

In summer 2021 everything revolves around the reinterpretation of a fashion classic: the trench coat. The timeless raincoat, which was once invented by the British Army, was never out - but it has been experiencing a real hype for several seasons and is now deconstructed, decorated with denim elements or available as an XL version.

10. Trend spring / summer 2021: hot pants & mini skirts

"Naked trend" number 3: Not only did the important fashion labels show a lot of skin around the top for the coming summer, it also got airy below: hot pants and mini skirts are in high season in 2021 - from ultra-short sequin trousers (at Giambattista Valli) to mini skirts in Cream white (at Chanel). Many designers also provided styling recommendations: Most of the models walked the runway with long-sleeved tops and flat shoes (boots or sandals).
