Fingers crossed; this is the last season we’ll be stuck at home because of the pandemic. Staying in doors and working from home doesn’t mean that we have to give up the latest fashion trends. A year on from the pandemic, our fashion style has changed to accommodate our unexpected lifestyles. If you’re tired of working from home in your loungewear or gym gear, these are four trends you can add to your spring wardrobe to update your look and give you a fresh perspective. Hopefully by the end of spring, we’ll all be back in the pub, showing off our latest outfit purchases. Until then, here’s our top picks of what to wear at home this spring.
Do you want to update your look without breaking the bank? You thank Taylor Swift to make cardigans a trend again. These lightweight jackets are a spring staple and the perfect way of bundling up a home. You can wear them over a sports bra and t-shirt or to cover up while wearing a dress. Cardigans are a working from home staple and the perfect way to start wearing your summer pieces a little earlier. You can get a cardigan in every colour of the rainbow. Whether you’re a fan of pastel pink or prefer a muted neutral tone, you’re guaranteed to find a style to work in your closet.
We’ve been guilty of showing up to a Zoom meeting in a t-shirt or a hoodie. If you’re still working from home, the likilhood is that your diary is full of virtual meetings and appointments. You can give your spring wardrobe a refresh with a few statement tops. The puff sleeve is one of spring’s biggest trends and gives you a structured silhouette that makes you look effortlessly put together. You could even pair them with your leggings or a pair of shorts will working from home.
If you’re still wanting to spend spring in your athleisure, don’t worry! Girlfriend Collective is becoming one of the ‘it’ brands within the activewear industry, fuelled by their sustainable practices and because their leggings are made using recycled plastic. These leggings are available in all the trending colours of the season, including mellow yellow, and neutral earth-tones for the minimalist who likes to keep it simple.
House Hill’s nap dress became synonymous with our working from home fashion during the start of the pandemic. If you usually spend the spring in dresses, you can give it a loungewear twist with the brand’s nap dress. While these feminine dresses look like they could be worn around a European city or for afternoon tea, they are more comfortable than you would expect. In fact, you could fall asleep wearing one. Other brands are jumping on the success off the nap dress by coming out with their own loungewear dresses this spring. This trend can also help you feel a little more human again.
What of these trends will you be adding to your spring WFH wardrobe?
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.
When we think of trends, we often focus on specific garments and aesthetics. Colours play just as important a role in defining trends, and they’re more overarching than any style niche or specific trend. Whether you’re a fan of the Y2k aesthetic or you have a classic Preppy style, these colours are a way you can incorporate the latest trends into your daily wardrobe. We’re rounding up the 5 biggest colour trends for 2021 that you’ll want to add to your wardrobe ASAP.
Tonal styling has been one of the biggest trends in recent seasons, with no sign of slowing down. While colour blocking was the ‘it’ trend of the 2010s, the tonal dress is the breakout style for this decade. Dressing from head-to-toe in one tonal shade is an art form. It’s a way of making any outfit look instantly chic and it’s a styling tip that you can use any time of the year. It’s a bold statement, especially if you decide to go with a vibrant colour like red or fuchsia pink. The tonal dress is effortless glamour and sophistication, making even your gym gear look more elevated. We’ve rounded up our tips for dressing in one colour in this handy guide to help you master the trend.
The first time you hear the phrase ‘Y2K’ it might stop you in your tracks. The name simply refers to the year 2000, focusing on the trends of the early 2000s up until 2010. Why are the trends back so soon? Usually, most fashion trends work on a twenty-year cycle as one generation grows up and sees the clothing style of the previous one. The Y2K trend has been made popular by Generation Z, who have come to love the trends they were too young to appreciate as children. There are Instagram accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, dedicated to posting y2k fashion inspiration.
There’s always a time when we want to refresh our wardrobe. Maybe you’re tired of looking inside and finding nothing you can wear. Perhaps you’re someone who likes to overhaul your closet every few months to keep it looking fresh. Buying an entirely new wardrobe every season isn’t possible for most of us. The pandemic has shown just how little clothing we utilize, as we all get in the habit of outfit repeating in the world of Zoom calls. Most of us ignore at least half of the clothes in our closet.
TikTok is an app most of us swore to stay away from before the pandemic. A lot can change in a year. It’s now an app we look at before even checking out Instagram or Twitter. The app, which is dominated by Generation Z and Millennials, has come to dominate the fashion trends. Who would have thought the app would have the power to cancel skinny jeans? We’re rounding up a few of our favorite fashion trends from TikTok that everyone is obsessed with.
