Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around. You’ll often find that there are already pieces in your wardrobe that are back in vogue. Shopping your closet helps you save the extra pennies to put towards a splurge purchase, like designer sneakers and a weekend getaway. We’re rounding up four fashion trends for 2021 that you probably already have in your closet.
We all remember when the Gucci Marmont belt was the it accessory to have. Every fashion brand from Zara to Topshop released their own take on the silhouette, making it likely that you have a statement belt somewhere in your closet. It’s all about the statement buckle, whether you like to go oversized with a Valentino style or a tad more minimalistic. With 2021 trends pointing towards oversized silhouettes and relaxed fits, a statement belt can help you cinch in your waist for days when you want to accentuate your curves.
2020 was the year of loungewear. With most of us working from home and spending more time indoors, we all reverted to wearing out comfy clothes all day long. You might have chosen to swap your wired bra out for a soft cotton bralette. For the 2021 look, wear your bralette as a crop top under a cardigan or blazer for an athleisure-inspired look. Focus on neutral colours like black, grey, and white to help your bralette blend in with your look. This trend is one that allows you to look stylish without compromising on comfort.
After the grey year that was 2020, it’s no surprise that we’re all looking for a rainbow after the storm. Dig into the back of your closet and find the boldest colours you can. Whether it’s pastel pink or mint green, bring some life back to your clothing. 2021 trends are pointing to head-to-toe outfits, mixing and matching bright colours together. If you want a more elevated look, keep your outfit to one monochrome colour and mix different tones of the same shade to add depth to your look.
Add a touch of drama to your look with voluminous sleeves. Before the pandemic, we were all putting together closets of glamourous outfits, whether it was pearl-embroidered headbands or velvet dresses. 2021 trends are looking to the past for inspiration, with the 80s being seen everywhere you look. A puff sleeve will add an elegant touch to any outfit, including your favourite pair of go-to jeans. Whether you’re seeing your friends in person or over a Zoom call, your voluminous sleeves are sure to make a statement.
Which 2021 trend are you rediscovering from the back of your closet?
Healthy, glowing, supple, hydrated skin is definitely the new black! As your body’s largest organ, it is important that you give your skin that extra special TLC and pay attention to the kinds of products you’re using. All through 2020, women (and men) took their skincare into their own hands (literally) and the results have been amazing. We are definitely entering 2021 on skincare high and thankfully, the trends emerging this year are some that we can definitely get behind! Keep reading for 5 exciting skincare trends you can look out for this year.
Do you subscribe to the philosophy of “change the hair, change the woman”? If you do, then you might be considering a fresh haircut after the year that was 2020. Changing up your hairstyle can be as much a statement of your personality and development as it is about fashion. In 2020, many of us had to do our hair from home and master the art of the box-dye and even cutting our own fringe. We hope that this year we get to return to the salons for a professional cut. With this in mind, we’re rounding up the 5 biggest haircut trends that you’ll want to consider trying in 2021.
After spending a year locked in our homes thanks to COVID-19, we’re all eagerly awaiting the day that we can go traveling again. While it’ll take a while for the tourism industry to return to normality, we can expect to be able to start traveling within the next few months. If anything, the pandemic gave us a newfound appreciation for being able to travel and experience new cultures and environments. It has made the idea of travel more meaningful for us all. We’re rounding up five things you can do to create a more meaningful travel experience in 2021.
2020 was far from easy. None of us expected to live through a global pandemic and to have our lives turned upside down. While we’ve been attached to the digital world since the 90s, it became our lifeline in 2020. Zoom and FaceTime replaced seeing our friends in person. Netflix became our therapy and Tik-Tok stood in for evening entertainment like going to a theatre production. We’re all glued to our phones more than ever. If you’re conscious of blue light damage to your skin, or in the mood for a digital cleanse, we have five hobbies you can try that can help you escape the drama of 2021.
